How to choose paint colors is a snap when you use specific tools available. Many of my clients become a little unsure as to the start of picking out interior paint color options.  Many have no clue where to look, if someone should be called, or how to start and finish the process.

Honestly, one doesn’t have to paint the inside of their home but every 3-5 years.  This time schedule really relies on how hard you are on your home and want to have your home stay up today on interior styles and designs.  You can eventually bored of the old colors in your home and wish for something fresh and colorful instead.  I suggest to our homeowners a few ways on how to pick out interior paint colors.  Check out my video below:


Three Free Ways to Pick out Colors

These are the three free ways to get some good interior colors picked out.

  1. Color Visualizers – go on the paint stores’ websites, and most have color visualizers.  You can upload your photo of the room and play around with colors.  Or you can go into the paint store and go through a mock room and pick out colors right at the store.
  2. Pinterest or Houzz – Both of these free sites have tons of interior designers that post their favorite room color choices and combinations.  Great source of free designer information.
  3. Paint Charts – many paint charts now have separate charts where the paint stores have given you a ceiling, wall, trim color combinations, and suggestions.  It’s great because the paint stores have paid a ton of money to get the paint colors to look perfect. 

How to chose interior paint colors also includes picking out paint colors for your basement on a budget.
