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.

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.
