Our Painting Company’s Tips for Choosing Interior Colors

Narrowing down color choices for your home’s interior? Start with these tips from 360° Painting® Austin:

  1. Use a color wheel to identify colors that are naturally complementary to one another.

  2. Instead of choosing a color and then seeing if it works with the colors of textiles and furniture in your room, try pulling a color that already exists in the space, such as an accent color in throw pillows or a bedspread.

  3. Take a picture of the rooms you will be painting and upload the images to the free Color Visualizer Tool found on our website to explore endless color combinations right from your smartphone.   

Our Painting Company’s Tips for Choosing Exterior Colors

Want to boost the curb appeal of your Austin-area home? Here are three tips for choosing an exterior color:

  1. Pay attention to the amount of sunlight and shade your home receives throughout the day. Subtle colors can help soften the garish look of full afternoon sun while bold, saturated colors can help your home stand out in shaded areas.

  2. Look at the color schemes used in and around your neighborhood to get a feel for what’s trending as well as color combinations you like and dislike.

  3. The color you like while standing under fluorescent lights at the paint store may look quite different when painted on the exterior of your home. To avoid color remorse, paint samples on large boards that you can move around your home, or paint samples directly on several walls to see how the color looks at different times of the day.

If you’re torn between two colors, not sure which finish to choose, or simply want to skip the mess and stress of DIY painting, call the professionals at 360° Painting® Austin. Along with free color consultations and expert advice, our company has the skill and experience to deliver eye-catching results you will enjoy for years to come.
