Color plays a major role when it comes to ensuring that a space is well-designed. It is a key component in the visual spectrum and your choice of paint color can directly affect the mood that you are trying to create in a particular room.
That being said, when moving into a new home, we highly recommend that you pick the paint color last. Now, that may seem unconventional, but please bear with us. We get that the logic behind it as you probably want to use it as a basis for every design element that follows. However, there is no guarantee that your choice of color will work in a particular space without giving the look of the house and the types of furniture due consideration.
The reason behind this is fairly simple. You need to have a clear idea what the contents of the room will be before you can effectively visualize it. Remember, there are thousands upon thousands of paint colors available. A simple primary color can come in a whole myriad of different tints, tones, and shades. So, even the most subtle differences can have an impact on a color scheme’s effectiveness to evoke a certain atmosphere.
