A fresh coat of paint is a simple way to makeover the rooms in your home, but choosing the right color is difficult. While white or neutral tones offer a blank canvas, they often fall flat of style. If you'd like to add a splash of creativity to your bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom, consider going bolder with color.

When it comes to professional residential painting in your area, the right color completely changes the ambiance and atmosphere of a space. Whether you want a relaxing or energizing environment, color is the key design element.

Color And Mood

We all have a favorite color, and it’s often associated with warm memories or our favorite natural elements or landscapes. Colors invoke feelings and emotions, establishing a link between color and mood. Studies have shown that color can calm us, invoke strong emotions, and help us concentrate. It’s important to consider the emotional responses connected with certain colors before deciding on the palette for your interior design.

A calm, peaceful atmosphere is perfect for bedrooms, reading nooks, nurseries, and meditation or yoga spaces. Cooler colors (but not too cool) are a good choice - think pastel hues or ocean-inspired blues. Muted green is a great choice that inspires creativity and boosts the mood.

Louder, saturated colors will do the opposite - up the energy! Bright oranges and reds are perfect for home gyms, the kitchen, or game rooms. When painting with such bold colors, keep in mind that a little goes a long way. Try using these tones on accent walls instead of all over the room.

Sunny yellow, coral pink and light oranges invoke happy moods are a great choice in living rooms, sunrooms and children’s bedrooms. You can also pair these cheerful hues with neutral colors for a balanced look.

Darker tones are great in creating a warm, snuggly feel. Earthy colors like browns, deep greens and greys are a great choice for a master bedroom, basements, and living rooms. Be sure to add some fuzzy blankets and fluffy pillows in contrasting tones!

What To Consider When Choosing A Color

Now that you’ve decided on a mood and narrowed down your color choices somewhat, there are a few other things to consider before selecting your palette.

Most homeowners have their unique style preferences, whether that’s modern, sophisticated, luxurious, or bohemian. Modern design sticks to whites and clean, crisp palettes. Bohemian styling includes earthy, eclectic colors. Let your natural desires be your guide and choose the color that truly speaks to you!

Once you’ve settled on a color, you’ll need to choose more! Yes, we know...but don’t be overwhelmed! The main color is the most difficult part, and the other hues you choose are the balancing tones in your palette. Most interior designs use a 60-30-10 rule, where the main color is the big player and the second and third colors add contrast. Choose a more neutral tone as the main one and get creative with bold, accenting colors.

If you’d rather try something different from the usual 60-30-10, there are other color themes. If you just want one neutral color, you can add in contrast with your wall hangings, furniture, and decor. Or you can go monochrome and deck your room out in all one color, from floor to ceiling! Why not try one color in various shades?

  • Finish
    From matte to high gloss, there are many finish choices to consider. Matte is a great choice for quieter spaces like bedrooms. Glossier paints are easy to wipe clean, making them ideal in bathrooms and kitchens. Gloss also reflects light, so be sure to consider the lighting in your room before selecting this finish. Matte, on the other hand, absorbs light and can look dull in the wrong space.
  • Lighting
    The amount of light in your room can change the way a color appears, so make sure to test a small patch of the wall first. Smaller rooms with minimal light do best with lighter hues - a high gloss finish can enhance the brightness of dull spaces. Large rooms will feel cozier when drenched in darker tones.
  • Are you selling?
    If you are planning to sell your home soon, steer clear of bolder colors. Homes with cleaner, neutral palettes tend to sell better because potential buyers can easily envision themselves and their own design tastes in the space.
  • Professional Assistance

    If you’re still stuck, you can always rely on the expertise of professional painters in your area. Painters have years of experience working with color and know how lighting, mood, and space elements play part in color selection.

    At Painter1, we are experienced in color selection and can help you choose the right color to fit the overall ambiance you are trying to create for your home or business. For everything from your calm bedroom space and focused home office to the happy kitchen, we have a wide variety of top-quality paints you can choose from.

We needed some wallpaper removed and there was no way I was going to try to tackle that. I'm glad I didn't. It was a disaster to come off but the crew handled it great. They fixed all the drywall damage after and the paint job looks awesome. Would highly recommend!

I tried to paint my rooms by myself. I realized after 3 days and finishing one room I needed some help. Painter1 was very accommodating to my family and I. They picked up where I left off and finished the rest of the house in 3 days! So glad I called them!

Painter1 was awesome. My house looks great. They were courteous, friendly, accommodating, put everything back where it was, cleaned up after themselves daily …. Their price was better than all other estimates. They did a final inspection with me, on site supervisor and owner Lisa.

We bought a house that still had builders beige, I didn't even know that existed still?!?! Painter1 is professional, and are quality painters! Thank you Dallin and Keslee for going the extra mile and making the process a breeze. So glad we don't have to live with those old colors!

Lisa and her crew did an outstanding job painting our home. From the first phone call made to Lisa down to the final proposal sent upon the completion of the job. She was prompt, responsive, kind and professional. The paperwork delivered by email was spot on. The entire process was flawless. They did the work as stated and in a timely manner. Lisa followed all of my special request to the T. Thank you again Lisa and the crew for all your hard work. My Mom and I are so pleased with the finished project. The neighbors all admired and loved your work also! A big thanks to David our neighbor who gave us your card. thank you again, Karyn Doran and JoAnne Day (Mom)

Lisa and her team did an excellent job on painting the exterior of our home. Her team was very polite and professional. I would definitely use her again and would highly recommend Painter1 to others. Good customer service is hard to find these days and I appreciate Lisa going the extra step to ensure our phone calls/emails were responded to in a timely manner and more importantly following up after her team was finished to make sure we were happy with the job. A big thank you to Lisa and the team at Painter1!

I came across Painter 1 while driving on the road and saw their van. After looking them up on Google and finding fantastic reviews I went with them. I did not shop around - I wanted the job done and after what sounded like a fair price - they were booked. Everything that you will read about Painter 1 and Lisa is accurate. She is terrific. She came to my home with color suggestions which were superb and started the job fairly quickly - after first giving me a reference for the removal of the popcorn ceiling. My older home 40+ looks as close to new again as possible. Christin was the manager on the job overlooking the progress daily and was in touch with me constantly about suggestions and other needs that arose as I am not in the apartment just yet. His communication was outstanding along with his suggestions. In addition, Lisa stands by her work 100%. As promised I was given a walk through and any minor concerns I had were addressed. Look no further - for great customer service, excellent work and a stand-up company - Painter 1 is all that. Thank you all for a real easy working relationship. You deserve the business!

Our church used Painter1 of Boise to restore a challenging tall and badly deteriorated exterior wall. The result was something we can all be very proud of! From the initial contact phone call to the estimate to the execution and clean-up, Sound Painting professionals were courteous, knowledgeable and skillful.

They reached out and we’re very communicative about starting early and we were able to accommodate them. It was a surprise, but a welcome one. We could tell they enjoyed working with each other. I highly recommend them.

My favorite thing about painter 1 was the integrity in the quoting and change order process. Dallin, the area manager, measured every wall and broke down the quote accordingly including cost of materials. The quote also included what would be excluded and what additions might cost. If you change something, you are first quoted a proposed amount, and then sign a change order. Aside from this respectability and transparency, I also felt I received a great quality outcome for a competitive price.
