Color Tips

Choosing the right color can be an agonizing decision for many people. Depending on the room, the lighting, the traffic, the texture, the color will make a big impact. The following articles have been compiled to help you choose the right colors.

Color Basics in a Nutshell

Light or pale colors can make rooms feel larger. They create a sense of openness – an impression that the space is larger than it actually is. This is one reason why whites are so often used on ceilings: They make the ceiling seem higher.
However, bright whites can also create the illusion that adjacent colors are darker, so they may not always be the best choice for ceilings. Off-whites with a hint of cream, or whites tinted with just a touch of the wall color, may bring more harmony to the room.
Many dark colors – or colors that are deep in tone – can make a room appear smaller, providing an illusion of intimacy or coziness. These kinds of powerful, more intense shades – sometimes called accent colors – create a visual perception that walls and ceilings are closer than they really are. They are ideal for accenting architectural features, such as framing a window. If your client has an impressive exterior view, framing the window with a dramatic color will “pull the eye” and help make the view a focal point in the room.
As always, though, there are exceptions to every rule. When dramatic colors are used, contrasting colors can help give definition to a room, especially when the contrasting shades outline molding, window trim or other architectural elements. White always works in this case, but off-white or a contrasting neutral can fit the bill nicely, too.
Cool or Warm?
Besides light and dark, colors are also classified as being warm or cool. Cool colors – like the blues, greens and grays found in nature – are restful and calming.
That makes them popular choices for a customer who seeks shades that set the stage for relaxation. Cool shades, even the deepest ones, tend to make the wall recede, giving the sensation of more space. In addition, these colors can make the room “feel” cooler from a temperature standpoint.
Warm colors – yellows, reds and browns – do just the opposite. They are considered cheerful, sunny colors, making them good picks for rooms when a pleasant upbeat atmosphere is your client’s goal. This is one reason many kitchens have been traditionally painted yellow.
An aside on yellow: Though many yellows are indeed bright and cheerful, yellow has a high light reflectance value – the reflection from painted surfaces that causes colors to act as a secondary light source. Consequently, bright yellows can sometimes be visually irritating. Coverage may be an issue, too, though many of those concerns are easily addressed by using the right primer coat before applying the yellow topcoat.
How Low Light Affects Wall Color
The type of artificial lighting in a room will affect the perception of the wall color, and should be considered when making paint choices. Here is a quick guide to the effects of the most popular lighting sources:
Incandescent lights cast warm yellow or amber tones that can intensify wall colors.
Standard fluorescent fixtures bring out cool tones and green casts. Warm fluorescents, while not as rich as incandescent sources, add warm casts.
Halogen lighting is bright and white and distorts color less than any otherartificial light source. It does, however, tend to cool colors a bit.

Dining Room Colors

Warm colors such as reds, oranges, and yellows, work especially well in more formal spaces. Psychologically, these colors help to stimulate the appetite, making them an excellent choice for rooms where the primary purpose is food and entertaining.
For the best dining experience, use warm hues that are muted or shaded -such as golden or creamy yellows, spiced oranges and terra-cottas, wines, burgundy, and dusty rose. These colors help stimulate appetite, while encouraging diners to linger at the table for pleasant conversation.
Tip: Be careful when using brighter versions of these warm hues—especially vibrant yellows and oranges—as these colors tend to make people eat faster. (That’s why these colors are typically used in fast-food restaurants!) Ideally, you should use bright, warm colors only as accents in dining rooms, with the more muted colors on the walls.

Because casual dining areas are so often open to other rooms, neutral colors tend to be the best choice for these spaces. Neutrals blend well with other colors, helping to create a complete, unified look.
Warm neutral colors—like red-toned or yellow-toned neutrals—work especially well in dining rooms. From warm rosy taupes to golden honey beiges, these colors are calm and comforting, creating a very pleasant dining atmosphere.

Open dining areas tend to look best when continued in the color schemes of the rooms that surround them. If cool colors are used in these rooms, try to use warm accent colors—such as touches of red, orange or yellow—to help stimulate the appetite.

Tip: While blue is one of the more popular colors for home décor, it’s not generally recommended for dining rooms! Blue tends to suppress the appetite, making the overall dining experience less enjoyable.

Problem Areas Fixed with Paint Color

Making small spaces look larger
Pale colors tend to recede visually (move away from you), so the lighter the color you choose for your walls and your floor, the larger your space will appear.
Cool colors such as blues, greens and purples also appear to recede, making small spaces visually appear more open and spacious. Shiny surfaces can help you expand space even more, which is definitely something to remember when selecting paint sheens.
Tip: Use deep, warm colors to make a large, lifeless dining area seem more intimate. Warm colors not only make large rooms appear cozier, but also can help to stimulate the appetite!

Patterns are a wild card
Patterns with a strong directional feel (stripes, for example) can also help to visually expand your space.
Vertical stripes tend to make rooms seem taller, while horizontal stripes make rooms appear longer. On the other hand, small dense patterns (especially in dark colors) can make a room feel smaller.
The same palette trick. To make a small apartment or home seem larger, use the same palette of colors throughout, but vary how you use them.

Tip: If using two different colors for your walls and trim, try repeating the colors in the connecting room, but use the trim color on the walls, and the wall color on the trim.

Corridor clipper.
Do you have a long, boring corridor that seems never-ending? Paint the far wall in a deep, warm color and it will magically appear to shorten.

Tip: To give a corridor a more spacious look, paint it with light, cool colors. To make it look even longer, mount a tall mirror at the end, making the space appear to go on forever.
Raising the roof. Got a ceiling that’s too low for comfort? Paint it a shade or two lighter than the walls.

Tip: Install crown molding around the perimeter of the ceiling, and paint it in a darker color than the ceiling. It will help to draw the eye upwards.
Make Architectural Features “Pop”. Do you have an interesting archway, column, or molding work you would like to highlight? Try painting it in a color that contrasts (see The Creative Power of the Color Wheel feature) with the walls, and it will suddenly leap into focus.

Tip: For a contemporary industrial look, try painting pipes, metalwork and ducts with contrasting paint colors, and make them look like sculptural art objects! Look around—you’ll see that this is a technique used in many former warehouse spaces that are now trendy shops and restaurants.

Paint Tips

Choosing the correct type of paint can make a big difference in how your room will look. First, you need to choose between oil and latex, and then the finish or sheen. The experts at Master Colors can offer some suggestions, but here are a few guidelines and definitions.

More on Finishes

Even after a homeowner has chosen the perfect color for a room, there’s another very important decision to make. With 5 or 6 paint finishes to choose from, you should learn the benefits of each and determine the right one for your job. Should you use flat or satin and why? Browse these tips on selecting the perfect paint finishes for your interior home applications.
Matte Finish
Whether called flat finish or wall paint, this type of interior paint has a matte surface. This paint finish is usually used on interior walls. It’s especially good if you have to camouflage small wall bumps, cracks, or other imperfections, as this finish does not reflect light. While some flat paints are advertised as washable today, you may need to touch up scratches or marks by covering with a bit more paint, so be sure you keep some on hand after you’ve finished painting.
Satin Finish
Satin finish paint has a smooth, velvety look with a bit more gloss. It is most often used for windows, doors, trim, or ceilings, but can also be used as wall paint. This is particularly suitable for kids’ room walls, kitchens, or bathrooms, or in areas which get a lot of traffic. Paint with a satin finish is formulated to hold up to cleaning and light scrubbing.
Semi-Gloss
Semi-gloss paint is most often used on doors, trim, and cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms. It is easily cleaned and lays down a nice, subtle shine, without being too glitzy. Take care with pre-paint preparation work, as poorly prepared surfaces can be a bit distracting when highlighted by a semi-glosssurface.
Glossy
High gloss paints have an almost reflective quality, as their shiny finish mimics the look of enamel or plastic. Tough not widely used in home interiors, it is becoming more popular for a dramatic look on cabinets, trim, and furniture in very formal and very contemporary settings. This finish will magnify any surface imperfections, so careful preparation and sanding is essential before painting with high gloss paints.
There are some particular application specifics that you should consider when selecting an interior paint finish.
Cleanability and Durability
While most manufacturers have developed all paint finishes with good cleaning qualities, a general rule is that the shinier the paint finish, the better it will stand up to washing and cleaning.
Kid-Friendly Finishes
When painting children’s rooms, many painters recommend using an eggshell or satin paint on the walls and semi-gloss for doors and moldings. These finishes are formulated to better withstand repeated cleanings.
Rustic Looks
In order to give a worn or old look, use flat finish paints for walls or furniture. If cleanability is an issue, you might select a flat enamel for trim or an eggshell finish for walls.
High Gloss Looks
Rather than choosing a high gloss paint for a whole room, use it sparingly in select locations, such as doors and trim. The brilliant surface can appear a bit cold and uninviting. Remember to spend extra time preparing the surfaces to be painted glossy, as this finish tends to really point out any surface imperfections.
Ceiling Paint
If you’re looking for a basic white ceiling, you can buy pre-mixed, matte finish paints off the shelf at almost any paint or home improvement store. Because cleanabiltiy or coverage is not a particularly important consideration, some ceiling paints use cheaper formulations. If you need an exact color match for the color scheme of your room, choose regular tinted flat wall paint.
Ceiling Finishes
Ceilings in most rooms are painted with a flat finish paint. You could also select an eggshell finish if the surface of the ceiling is flawless. Choose a glossier finish for good light reflection, but only if the ceiling is newly resurfaced and has no blemishes.
Kitchens and Baths
Any room, such as a kitchen or bathroom, that will be exposed to water, splashing, or steam, is best painted with a semi-gloss paint. A guest bath or powder room which will have less-frequent use, could be painted with lower-gloss paint, such as satin or eggshell finish.

Tip: Install crown molding around the perimeter of the ceiling, and paint it in a darker color than the ceiling. It will help to draw the eye upwards.
Make Architectural Features “Pop”. Do you have an interesting archway, column, or molding work you would like to highlight? Try painting it in a color that contrasts (see The Creative Power of the Color Wheel feature) with the walls, and it will suddenly leap into focus.

Tip: For a contemporary industrial look, try painting pipes, metalwork and ducts with contrasting paint colors, and make them look like sculptural art objects! Look around—you’ll see that this is a technique used in many former warehouse spaces that are now trendy shops and restaurants.
