Choosing the right paint color to use in a room can be quite difficult. You need to be sure that you take the time to find a color that will complement the room nicely, without overwhelming the space. If you already have the furniture, you want to use in the room, it is best to take a swatch of fabric to the paint store to ensure you find the right color to suit your needs. Use the following guide to ensure you find the perfect color to have a painting contractor paint on your walls to add color and charm to any room.

Get a Swatch of Fabric

If you have throw pillows or arm covers that you use on your sofa, you can bring one of them with you to the paint store to compare paint colors. If you do not have throw pillows or arm colors, you need to get a fabric swatch from the bottom edge of the couch. Around the bottom of many couches is a small skirt that keeps someone from seeing under the couch. If you look at the corners of the skirt, you will see that there is a folded area where extra fabric is hidden behind the skirt. Cut the extra fabric to create a swatch that is roughly two inches in diameter.

Compare Colors

There will be many paint color palettes from which you can choose. Hold the colors you think you like next to the swatch to find the color that best complements the colors in the fabric on the couch.

Create a Custom Color

If you are not able to find a great pre-made color to use in your home, you may want to have one created. A paint store can create a custom color for you using your fabric swatch. This allows you to ensure that you will be happy with the color you choose and that it will pair perfectly with the furniture you plan to use.

Use a Trial Size

There are trial sizes of paint now available. This allows you to see if you like the paint before you buy it in large gallon sized buckets. Paint a large area of a wall with the paint to allow you to see how it really looks on your wall.

Once a few days have passed and you can look at the wall and determine if the color is a color you can enjoy seeing for years to come. You do not want to repaint the walls year after year and making sure you will be happy with the paint color will save you a lot of hassle in the end.
