  • interior painting team helps homeowners choose colorsWhen it comes to painting the interior of a house, which step do you think takes the longest? Cutting in the corners? Preparing the floors and furniture? Actually, for many homeowners, the decision process is the longest and most difficult step in the interior painting process. After all, with a literal rainbow to choose from, how do you know you’re making the best choices for your family?

    Never fear, the interior painting team at Orlando Painting and Drywall is here to help. With the assistance of our Sherwin-Williams color professionals, here are a few guidelines to help you pick your perfect palette.

    • Start with what you know. We love the idea of building your palette around your favorite color. In modern design, you don’t have to stick to neutrals – use your favorite color (even chartreuse or hot pink!) as your base and compile the rest of your palette around it. If you want to tone it down a bit, simply select a lighter shade of that color to start.
    • Take a spin on the color wheel. Remember learning that yellow and blue make green in elementary art classes? The principles you learned then are still applicable now. Pick up a color wheel at your local art supply store, or use one online, to see how colors will interact with each other. You’ll get a good grip on color theory and be able to create some truly unique combinations.
    • Focus on your decor. Often, people start by painting the walls before they decorate with furniture and accessories, but it’s totally acceptable to go about it the opposite way. If there’s a bedspread or a couch you really love, focus your color choices on that piece. Go back to step 2 and use a color wheel to figure out which other shades will compare and contrast with your furnishings.

    You don’t have to get lost in a sea of colors. All you need is a solid starting point and you can let your imagination run wild from there. Still unsure about your choices? Your consultation with the interior painting team at Orlando Painting and Drywall includes one-on-one time with a Sherwin-Williams color pro. To schedule your appointment, call 407-326-9779 today.
