Whether you're painting your home to prepare it for sale, or simply to make it more attractive for your own enjoyment, choosing the right colour is super important! A colour isn't just a matter of taste, it's also, to a large extent, about the emotions it elicits.
If you're painting your foyer, for example, you may want it to seem warm and welcoming. So, light, warmer tones might be appropriate as that colour is often interpreted as friendly.
In your living room, you may want to create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. In that case, consider shades of greens or grays as those colours communicate peacefulness and calm.
Want the rec room to look vibrant and energetic? Brighter colours communicate those emotions, possibly shades of reds.
Where do you find more information about colour psychology? There are plenty of charts available online. Just Google "colour psychology charts". They can help you select just the right colour to convey the feeling you want for a room.
Of course, if all else fails, you can't go wrong with soft beiges, or light gray/beiges especially when selling your home. Neutral colours are often interpreted as reliable and buyers are able to picture their own furniture and items in a more neutral palet.
