Unique House Design Colors Ideas
If you’re like most people, you have not paid too much attention to the color of the house until you decide to work on your own home improvement project. All right, so you’ve moved, you need or want to paint. You’ve found a good painter and signed in. You get a call from a painter who says he can start right away. Arghhhh! Panic in because now you realize you have to find a set of home paint color ideas. What to do???
Does this look familiar?
* You get in the car and go around looking for a house
* You go to the paint shop and get a boatload of color charts
* You are online
* You ask your friends and family
* You ring the doorbell of the owner of the house and ask them about their color
You become confused and confused
Oh yes, you say … ever do all those things and you’re back to square one …. still not having any color idea? Let’s start from scratch;
0) Driving a car and seeing a house is actually a great idea to start. This will give you a general feel for what is being done in your neighborhood. While you may not want to be a “salary cat”, it’s usually worth staying within your accepted city standard. This is especially true if you are thinking of selling your home. I recommend coming out as a team, one person driving, others taking notes. Jot down the address and bring your digital camera. While the camera will not be accurate for color, the camera will help you to compose ideas and compare them.
0) The paint color chart is a very helpful way to get a specific idea about the scheme for your home painting project. This is generally a nice, workable palette that can be customized with a variety of styles and home locations. The danger here is gathering too many of them. After collecting about 4-5 of them, your eyes will begin to glaze. It is best to choose the brand of paint you want first, THEN go for the color chart.

House Design Colors Ideas
0) Everyone is online lately and the web is a great source of information. It is also a source of GOBS information as you find it. Everyone has opinions and opinions but not all of them are quality opinions. Remember that the colors you see on your monitor are not correct … they are electronic pixels and not paint. The colors will vary due to that fact and also because your monitor may not be calibrated. If you see the colors online that you think you want, go to the paint shop and take samples to make sure.
0) Asking friends and family opinions … this may seem like a great idea. Of course your friends and family take care of you and wish you well but they do not know more about this than you! They will be influenced by their own experience, personal preferences, and advertising. Your friends and family hold opinions based on likes and emotions, not applied science. Emotions are important in choosing colors because you need to love your colors. But your life based decision on emotions alone is a dangerous idea.
0) Ringing doorbells are a great way to meet new friends. Most homeowners will be very honored to know that you love the color of their homes and will be very willing to share. Remember that this is someone else’s house, not your house and their palette may not be successfully translated to your location.
0) Confusion … it’s easy to become overwhelmed by information. I am here to help you avoid confusion not just to help you avoid a very costly mistake. If you follow my recommendation, this will help you filter out a lot of not so good choices and to help you focus on just the good ones.
Last but Best Choice – Seek the advice of a professional; interview some. You will find different styles and qualifications. Beware of housewife decorators. Your home is too important as an investment in terms of time, money, and materials to be handed over to someone who only has “talent” for color, that alone is not enough. In many countries there are no requirements or licenses for designers, choose a designer who has a formal education, professional affiliation and whom you “connect” with. I specialize in creating color palettes for colors that are challenged. I work with my clients to give them what they want in the context of a good and workable scheme. I am a color and color theorist. I have helped thousands of people on average create happiness and joy by showing them how to maximize their home potential. I think I have the best job in the whole universe!
