Tips for choosing the interior paint colors for home painting

2. The paint color affects the room size too. Colors as, violet and green make the room appear larger. Warm colors as yellow and red should be avoided, as they make the room look small.
3. There are trims on the wall of the rooms. You have two options available in such cases. You can paint the trim with different color than that of the wall. This will emphasize the trim. You can also color the trim with the same color, to give it monochromatic appearance.
4. Try to use dark and light shades of the same color, in the house. It will harmonize the appearance of the entire house. If you use two extreme contrasting colors, they will appear to be clashing.
