Olympia Paints: How To Choose The Perfect Paint Colour

A great paint job will not only enhance the appeal of your home but also has the potential to boost its resale value; how then does one decide on the right paint colour to choose?

The best colours – or colour combinations – are typically those which bring out your home’s most beautiful features.  For example, you should consider your home’s connection to the streetscape and its surrounding landscape; is it located away from the road verge?  Or is it situated amongst greenery in your garden?  If so, you may want to choose lighter or brighter shades of colour so that the property can stand out, while darker colours will cause it to recede.

Your home’s architectural style is another important consideration.  For example, certain ‘standard’ or ‘common’ colour schemes are preferred for Cape Dutch or country-inspired houses, while for the more contemporary-style homes, you can paint it according to your preferred colour craze.

The size of your home should also be a consideration when choosing your colour.

You may choose to tone up or tone down certain of your home’s features, depending on the proportions.  Lighter colours have the ability to expand a home or feature, while darker colours typically tend to shrink them.  If your main colour is dark, white trims for windows are advised.  If you’re a brave heart, try and experiment bold with accent colours, but in moderation.

Your colour inspirations can also come from your surrounding environment

Your colour inspirations for your home can even be drawn from your landscaping, or fixed elements which will not change in the foreseeable future, such as your driveway or your roof.
