How to Choose Expressive, Fun & Long-Lasting Paint Colors for Interior Design?

When it comes to the interior design of your home, the color of the paint is the final touch. With painting, the design of your home ends. As it is the finishing part for you, it is the other way round for your guests and friends. Imagine if a colleague comes over to your home, what is the first he is going to notice or see? Of course, the paint. And you must have heard the old adage that goes, “first impression is the last impression.”

So, if the paint is bright and attractive, they will most likely develop a positive impression. And what could be a better feeling than receiving a genuine and wholesome compliment from your friend on something that you have pondered over? With this in mind, we have talked to interior designers and have tried to figure out all the ins and outs of painting. Like, as what tools to use, what color works best, and what is the best finisher color, etc?

Although there are no hard and fast rules for painting, you can go out of your way to take the painting to a whole new level. Nonetheless, you must have some familiarity with the basic know-how of it. Here is what those professional designers came up with:

  • Hues are Essential; Choose Creatively

Most of the designers, that we talked to, were of the opinion that the colors – AKA hues – are essential. And one has to be creative while choosing them. “Generally, bright colors like white, blood-red, and black are the most attractive ones,” suggests one of the designers that we talked to. She went on to say that taking the hues to every part of your house’s interior is another way of introducing creativity with painting. “Take it to the walls, ceilings, cupboards, and to the entire roo,” she asserts.

Nevertheless, what is most important is that the color you are looking to paint should be something you feel good every time you look at. Since you will be the one looking at the paint more than anyone, you should feel good about it first. Then, you can look for options outside you.

  • Say No to Heterogeneity

This apparently sounded an unpopular opinion when I heard one of the designers saying it. “I don’t like the mixture of hues that most people make. Heterogeneity of colors is not a good idea,” he argued. When asked, he said: “Well, there are multiple reasons for that.

To begin with, a mixture of paints deviates your focus. You just can’t stay focused if you are looking at a wall that has black, green, red, yellow, and white colors all in one.” He went on to say, a mixture of colors does not look good to the eyes at the first glance.

Nonetheless, this is by no means a fixed rule of painting. If you think otherwise, you can do that too. But just consider the pros and cons. And if you still feel the yearning for doing it, you are good to go for it.
