Picking Paint for Open Floor Plans for Your Greenville Home
As a Greenville homeowner, you have a lot of choices to make. Who knew one of your biggest decisions would be about paint colors?
But it matters more than you probably realize, and we want to help you better understand why. This will help to ensure why so you make color selections that you can live with and love, for years to come.
Are Your Paint Colors Working Together?
If you aren't planning out your paint color selections for your home, especially in an open floor plan, you are going to end up with clashing colors! Plan and choose wisely with these tips in mind:
- Keep in mind that you should be making choices as though it were one big room and not individual rooms. That doesn't mean you can't have different colors in various space, it just means you have to make decisions, so the colors complement one another instead of causing it all to clash.
- The point of an open floor plan is to make the space feel open; it often helps make an otherwise small space feel bigger. So, it only makes sense that you should choose colors that help open it up. Lighter hues tend to do this while darker colors close a space in.
- Keeping it neutral can help a lot. Of course, just the thought of neutral shades puts panic in many homeowners. Don't worry, you can still spruce up the look with an accent color but having more subtle tones will help everything work together more cohesively.
- Plan on three colors with no more than five. Obviously, the more colors you implement, the more of them that should be neutral. Five bold colors may be representing all of your favorites but are going to create a busy and unappealing living space.
