The possibilities for your home are endless!  Picking the right combination of colors is the most important part of the painting process.  Here are some tips & tools to help you make the right choices regarding your color selection.
 
Begin At The Beginning - Determine what features or existing finishes in the room you would consider permanent. Consider the cabinets, tile, or a fireplace.
 
Create A Focal Point - Emphasize your home's architectural features, such as trim, with contrasting paint lighter or darker than the wall.
 
Unify The Color Flow - You can unify rooms by using a common color swatch. Create distinct spaces by altering the shade and hue of the swatch.
 
Emphasize or Minimize - A narrow room will look wider if you use a slightly darker color on the shorter walls and a lighter color on the longer walls. You can make a ceiling appear higher by applying a lighter color, or lower with a darker color.
 
Reflect On Light Sources - Remember that the color you choose may look different at various times of the day and night. Incandescent lights will have a different influence on the color than the natural light of the day.
