Having too many options can make it hard to make a choice. Decision paralysis is a real thing! Sometimes, you can feel so overwhelmed with how many options there are that you end up putting off deciding or blindly picking something just so you can get it over with.
If you see yourself in the scenario above, don’t worry. We’ll narrow down your choices for you. Here are no-fail home paint colors to pick from.
For Your Home’s Exteriors
Looking to paint your home exteriors? It’s hard to go wrong with whites and off-whites. If you’re looking for suggestions, the paint colors above are handpicked by editors at MyBoysen.com.
White is a classic color for home exteriors. It gives your house a fresh and clean look. And, it can even increase curb appeal and your home’s marketability. It’s also a great color for houses in tropical and warm climates like the Philippines as white absorbs less heat than darker colors. Plus, it’s a color that fades slower than darker hues so your paint job is more likely to look good for longer.
Get the paint colors above at your nearest Mix and Match station (list of locations here). Ask your paint to be mixed as Boysen Permacoat Latex which can be used on exteriors. Don’t forget to see the actual swatch in person too to make sure you’re happy with it as colors can look different when viewed through a digital screen.
If You Have Scandi-inspired Interiors
Scandinavian interiors continue to be popular among Filipinos. Who can forget the hype when the first IKEA in the country opened? It’s not hard to see why many Pinoys have taken to the style too. Its no-fuss, functional design aesthetic is approachable and relatively affordable too.
If you love the Scandinavian style, check out the neutrals from the Scandinavian Inspirations collection at The Color Library. Shown above are the colors from there that are the most versatile. You can get them as paint at The Color Library as well. They’ll mix a batch for you in-store in 200mL or 1 L containers.
The Color Library is a one-of-a-kind concept store by Boysen that houses over a thousand paint swatches carefully curated and arranged on shelves for you to browse. Visit it at the MOA Square, SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. It’s just a few steps away from IKEA!
If a Space Lacks Natural Light
We all want maaliwalas-looking spaces—you know, rooms that look bright and airy! Sunlight streaming through big windows plays a big part in achieving the coveted maaliwalas home but, sadly, we can’t all have that. The good news though is that you can cheat your way to it with a bit of paint.
The color of your walls has an effect on how bright your space seems to be. Stark white may seem like the correct choice but this can often lead to rooms that end up being cold, draining, and clinical. The hues above have a hint of color while still remaining bright. They’re subtle enough to replace white.
Get the paint colors above at your nearest Mix and Match station (list of locations here). Again, don’t forget to see the actual swatch in person too to make sure you’re happy with it as colors can look different when viewed through a digital screen.
