Color guide to match colors for printing

When a buyer purchases one of the homes for sale in Little Elm TX, the new homeowner often decides to paint one or more rooms a different color. Deciding to change the color is easy. Deciding what particular color to use is a different story altogether. Picking the “perfect” paint color can be downright stressful for many people. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are a few tips to help you easily choose the perfect paint color for your home.

  1. Choose a basic color, and then narrow it down to no more than 10 shades using paint chips or a color deck from a local hardware or paint store.
  1. Search Pinterest or Google Images for photos of these paint colors being used in other people’s spaces. *Note: These colors may be slightly inaccurate due to lighting, but it can give you a general sense of the color and how it will look in your home.
  1. Buy small samples of your color “finalists.”
  1. Paint samples on the wall next to key design elements in the room, such as countertops, a couch, rug, etc. Make sure the sample is large enough so you can really tell what the color looks like and how the paint color works with the other key elements of your room.
  2. Make sure the existing wall color isn’t influencing your decision by playing tricks on your eyes. Cover up the existing wall color as best as you can with the colors it will be paired with in your new room, so you can focus on the color’s true tone.
  1. Observe the paint samples at all hours of the day and night to make sure you absolutely love the color in all shades of light.
  1. Choose a winning color and then match the exact color using the paint brand you plan to use for the room.
  1. Paint the room and enjoy your new look!
