Good and Bad Paint Choices


There are certain colours you should and shouldn’t consider for this important room. Read on to find out how you can make this a pleasant place to visit for you and your guests.

SMART CHOICES FOR WALL PAINT

What color works well? Which ones can create the kind of environment you want there? Here are colors to think about when it comes time to repainting.

Ocean Aquamarine

Is there anything more comforting than the sound of ocean waves ebbing and flowing on the beach? With an aquamarine color on the walls and a beach/nautical theme in décor, you can feel relaxed as you enter the room, almost as if you’re escaping real life with a brief retreat.

Calm, Light Colours 

You don’t have to go for an aquatic vibe, but cream is a commonly chosen color because of its calming effect. This shade is clean, light, and airy but not too bright. Other neutrals, such as gray or off-white can have a similar effect.

Deep, Dark Colours

If you prefer a darker color, you can choose to paint the walls with a deeper tint where you take your current color choice and make it a couple of shades darker, but be careful. Dark colors can make a space seem more intimate, potentially making a small powder room feel even smaller. If you choose a rich, deep grey or a charcoal brown, make sure you include accent pieces that bring more light to the room. Or you could consider highlighting one wall with a bold color and putting a lighter complementary color on the others.

BAD CHOICES FOR WALL PAINTThere are certain shades that work in other rooms but simply shouldn’t be used in a living room. After a while, it tends to look dingy and grimy, usually assuming muddy or beige undertones. As a result, you should not use these kinds of colors on the walls. They have long been out of style and can make your living room appear outdated and dirty.
