Bedroom Painting

Determine Your Mood

Determine the mood you want to create with the room. Warmer tones are friendly and inviting. Cooler tones create calm and relaxing spaces.

Interior trim ideas

Trim Color

Keeping the trim all one color provides continuity as you move from room to room. Stark white in a semi- or full-gloss creates a very formal look.

color transition ideas

Choose Color Flow

Think about 'flow' and how the colors of neighboring rooms will work together. Very dark to very light transitions, or transitions from rooms with highly contrasting colors can either be jarring or invigorating.

What Does a Color Consultant Do?

A CertaPro Painters® of Cedar Rapids consultant will chat with you to get to know your ideas. The consultant will also look at the rooms you need painted and advise on the best approach to take.

The color consultant will show you their paint deck to help you pick your room’s colors while answering any questions you have. Before they leave, your CertaPro Painters® paint consultant will give you 4×4 sample cards of each of the colors you selected to keep as a reference.

Paint Color Consultation Tips and Examples

Painting isn’t just about home maintenance. When the paint has dried, there is so much more to think about such as:

  • Which pieces of furniture to keep and which to replace.
  • What kind of window treatments will look best.
  • What accessories will best enhance the décor.

You can’t begin to think about these questions until you have picked the right colors for your rooms. This is where color consultation is most important since it saves you time and helps you avoid costly mistakes.

Color consultants have helped homeowners with all kinds of projects. Here are just a few examples:

  • Whole house interior: In this case, a color consultant can help you with a unique color palette to suit your home. Typically, your consultant will help you choose a comfortable neutral color to run through the “vein” of the house. This will give the other coordinating shades and colors a more cohesive feel.
  • A different color for every room: Sometimes homeowners want each of their rooms to have a completely different ambiance. A color consultant can help, especially if you have a tight budget.

Darkness and light: Some people love darker colors in their home, but it can be difficult to tell just how dark you can go. Although it depends on how much light is in the room, there are other factors to consider, such as the amount of wall space, the furniture and if there is any millwork which can be brightened to enhance the room.
