Interior and Exterior Paint Color Tips
Here are top exterior and interior painting ideas to keep in mind while you choose a palette for your project.
Exterior Color Ideas
Drive through various neighborhoods and take note of appealing exterior paint color schemes and adaptability to your own home.
Define Your Entry
Define the entry. Use exterior paint color as a "Welcome" sign to your home.
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.
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.
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.

Color Consultation in Chagrin Falls
Choosing paint colors for the main rooms in your home is difficult but have you ever considered what color to paint your closets? It may be last in your list on home improvement projects but it may be more important than you think. Your closet it probably one of the first places you go into when getting ready for work and you want it to be a positive atmosphere. Having your closet painted a nice color also ties together the entire home. It is also important to make sure the paint you choose is optimal for what a closet is designed for… finding things! Here are 5 tips to help make your closets as functional as possible.
1. Assess what paint is already in your closets. If it is a darker color, you will have to prime the walls before you begin painting. You can do this by rolling it on just as you would when you are painting.
2. Consider bright colors. Bright colors help open up a space and make it look larger than it actually is. This is important in spaces such as closets. It will also make it easier to see what is in the closets.
3. Choose the right shade. Using the same color in the closet that is used in that particular room makes for a classy, simple look. However, if the room is a darker shade you may want to reconsider. Darker colors make it harder to see and they also show wear more easily. In a place like a closet, where shoes and other items are being thrown around, it can already be a place where more wear and tear is occurring on the walls. Light, neutral colors such as white, tan, gray, etc. tend to be the best options for closet spaces.
4. Choose the right finish. Satin paint is the best option for closets. This is because it doesn’t show marks as easily. It is also easier to clean.
5. Skip the Ceiling. The ceiling of a closet most likely isn’t visible to the public eye and therefore isn’t really worth the time and effort it will take to paint.
What Does a Color Consultant Do?
A CertaPro Painters® 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.
