The Perfect Neutral Paint Color For Your Home

September 28, 2016 at 11:17 am | No comment | Category: Blog

Neutral paint colors are timeless, flexible, and easy to use. If you’re wondering whether neutral tones are right for your home, our tips can help!

Here’s when to use neutral paint colors in your room and home:

You want to decorate with an accent wall. Crimson, magenta, turquoise, and cerulean are beautiful colors, but may create a bolder look than you’re going for when they cover every wall in the room. Instead, apply your bright, bold color of choice to an accent wall, and then cover the remaining walls in a soft gray or taupe.

You’re not “good with colors.” If you’re one of the countless homeowners who claims to have no “eye” for color, neutral paint colors will save the day. Instead of fretting over innumerable shades of mauve, marigold, and burnt sienna, find a simple cream or beige and relax.

Your home has a specific style. Is your San Marco home a Spanish Revival villa? Is your Mandarin home a classic Mid-Century Modern gem? Do you live in a historic Craftsman style bungalow in Riverside Avondale? Regardless of your home’s era and style, there is a historically-accurate neutral tone for every room in the house – and for the exterior of the house, as well.

Your home has NO specific style. Most of us live in homes that are a mix of styles, eras, and design elements — and neutral tones are just as easy to use in these situations.

You want clean and modern. Nothing says simple, streamlined, clean, and modern like a pale gray or an off-white with cool undertones.

You want warm and welcoming. On the other hand, nothing is as welcoming and cozy as a warm, medium beige or soft cream.

You want easy. Incorporating neutrals into your home is as easy as it gets. Your paint manufacturer of choice will have dozens of color choices. Simply grab a few paint swatches and start planning your painting projects! When you find a good painting contractor for the job, a great professional painter will be happy to help you pinpoint some specific tones and hues for your home.
