When choosing paint colours for your new home, keep the following in mind.
The size and shape of the room you’ll be painting
When painting a room, keep the size of the room in mind. If the room is a small room, then the colour scheme should not be one that is complicated. Light colour give the illusion of a larger room while dark colours tend to shrink the room.
Also, consider where you will be painting. A colour that is used as a trim can look significantly different when used on a wall, so consider the colour and where the colour will be painted.
A nice technique when painting is to bring the colour in. If you have a room with a view, then one nice accent is to paint in a nature colour scheme, bringing the two together to create an atmosphere that is refreshing. For instance, if you want to bring in the outside view or the atmosphere into the room, paint in greens and browns with a wooded view or greens and blues for an ocean view.
Never forget that the quality of your indoor air matters. Use paints that are low in volatile organic compounds or VOC as these compounds can be potentially harmful.
