Choosing the right paint color for your space can be a fun but daunting experience. Armed with brochures, fandecks, and online sources, it can be overwhelming to look through hundreds, if not thousands, of colors. With tons of different house paint ideas at your fingerprints, where do you start?

What Color Psychology Says

Color psychology is a good place to start. Colors really do have a massive effect on us! Studies show that sleeping in a blue bedroom results in the longest and soundest sleep for most individuals. Yellow is cheerful and bright, but can be overstimulating to the senses. So, use this shade in moderation. White can be a clean slate but may feel too clinical. So, pair this well with accent walls (perhaps try a modern concrete look?).
