So, you’ve decided to paint the interior of your home. Now you are trying to choose colors and are feeling overwhelmed, confused or just plain lost. Choosing the right colors for your home can be a daunting task, but with one of our experienced designers we can help you choose the perfect shade for each room in your home!
At Walls By Design we offer color consulting. What exactly is color consulting you may ask? Color consultants can provide solutions and color options that properly meet your needs. Color can influence a space and the people within it. Having an expert that can guide you through the process and provide you with options will help you accomplish your goals and create an inviting space that feels like home.
What you get
One of our designers will come to your home and meet with you to help you choose the right colors for your space. Our designer will take a look at the room that is going to be painted, the materials, the furniture and décor and outside factors such as what you see out the window. Collecting this information will help her understand what colors will work best in the space. She will also talk to you about what you are looking for, do you want a relaxing space? An energizing space? What are your favorite colors? Do you prefer dark or light spaces? Things like that.
After meeting with the designer, she will suggest colors, shades, and finishes that will look best.

Still having trouble choosing a color after your consult?
We have color boards that you can look at to get a better sense of how the color will look on your walls. You can also get small samples of paint and test the colors on the walls to compare colors. This can be extremely helpful because you can see how the colors look at different times of the day. Sunlight, shadow and interior lights can change how the color appears.
Some fun facts about paint colors
Have a small home? You can use color to make your home seem larger. White is commonly used to make a home feel more spacious and gives a clean slate for furniture and décor.
Feeling blue? You can use colors to boost your mood. Blues, greens and pinks are restful and calming colors while yellow, orange and red are energizing and sometimes aggravating.
Ever heard of undertones? Undertones have more of an effect than you think. Undertones are the shades lurking beneath the main color. Many times, undertones are hard to detect until you look at the paint in a certain light or pair them with other colors. Warm or cool undertones will have an effect on how the paint color looks in your home. Our Color Consultant will identify the undertones in each paint color and decide if it is right for your space.
Another fun fact: You can use your ceiling as an accent wall. Painting ceilings is becoming more a more popular. A colorful ceiling can add interest and depth to a plain room.
