House Painting Mistakes Everyone Makes (and How to Avoid Them)


Choosing the Wrong Colors

One of the biggest, most devastating painting mistakes you can make happens before you even pick up a brush or roller. That mistake is basing your paint color choice on color chips. We’ve all done it. You pick out a nice color from the strip at the store and order your paint. But when you put the paint on the walls at home, it doesn’t look like the color you picked out. You can avoid this problem by asking the paint store to mix a small sample of paint that you can take home and try out on the wall, in both natural and artificial light, during the day and at night. Then if you don’t like it, you’re only out a few bucks. Check out these 10 useful tips for how to choose paint colors, and you’ll be on your way to selecting the perfect hue for each room in your home.

Another paint-color related tip: If you’re selling your home, don’t choose bright colors. Buyers might not think your lime green kitchen is as cool as you do. Our advice: Keep it neutral.
