Four walls in any room in your home is something you have to look at on a daily basis (unless it’s a room you don’t use very much). As such, you want a color that you like, but that will look good with your existing decor and make the room sizzle. But how do you choose interior paint colors?

When you’re forced to make an interior home repair, a trip to the hardware store can be drudgery. If you’re doing it yourself, you have to head to the store, pay for supplies, and then spend your Saturday afternoon trying to figure out how to fix your interior problem.

On the other hand, choosing interior paint is usually a lot more fun! It’s easy to get excited about, because it’s something that you actually want to do. So you can casually head to your local hardware store, pull all the swatches you want, and then take them home and imagine the entire interior room that color. Then all you have to do is contact DJ’s Painting, and your local painters will take care of the rest.


Of course, there are a few precautions that need to be taken when you’re picking your paint colors. Let’s take a look at the times an interior painter could try to talk you out of a particular color.

  1. Check the Time Of Day.
  2. What Kind of Lights Do You Have In the Room?
  3. What Room Are You Painting?

Consider lighting.

Many people forget about the effect both natural light and artificial light have on a room and on their paint color. If you have a dark room with little lighting, you will want a lighter paint color for your walls. If you have a lot of natural light in your room, a brighter, darker color would work, as well as lighter colors. DJ’s Painting recommends that you test out a few paint colors on your walls before you make a decision.

Remember your ceiling as a fifth surface.

Many people just assume that their ceiling has to be white. However, painting your ceiling a shade or two lighter than your wall color can make your room appear larger, as well as offer a softer, more cozier feel. For small rooms, you can even paint your ceiling the same color for a similar enlarging effect.

All of these stipulations could greatly impact the outcome of your paint job! The colors you choose are always up to you, but we want to make sure that you’ve looked at your choice from many angles so that you’re happy with your decision. When you’ve made your choice, your local residential painters at DJs Painting will be ready with their brushes!
