Many factors that you must pay attention to, ranging from home design, the impression you want to look, to lighting.
So that the Toppers do not regret or bother repainting later on because they are not satisfied, let’s pay attention to some tips and tricks for choosing a good home paint color!
1. Get to know the Model House
The first step that must be done before choosing a house paint color is to recognize your own home model. Is the model minimalist?
In building or renovating a house, the basic concept of a house model has an important role because this will affect the type of furniture that will fill the house, the shape and arrangement of each room, and of course, the color of the house paint.
2. Determine the Mood You Want Formed from Home
This process requires in-depth discussion with family members. Does the house want to be painted with a palette of the same color for each room, or is it adjusted to the wishes of each room owner? What mood or impression do you want from the whole house: cheerful, simple, luxurious, elegant or warm?
So that the house gives the impression of cheerful and vibrant, a combination of bright colors like bright yellow, aqua, white, and pink is the right choice. If you want to give the impression of luxury, choose monochrome colors like black, dark blue, gray, and white.
Conversely, if the mood you want to form is a feeling of warmth, Toppers can paint the house with a cream, brown, orange, or green color.
3. Create a Color Palette
Talk to your architect or builder about the color palette that will be used as a guide to paint the house. Toppers can create a color palette of their own accord, find inspiration for color combinations from the internet, or observe trends in house paint colors that are ‘in’ now.
See and match the main color of the house with various other colors. Consider the complimentary colors, compare the colors that will be used as the main color of the house with similar shade colors, or even with contrasting colors (for example, red with blue, green with brown, yellow with white).
Don’t miss out, also think about the type of finishing you want: Matte, satin, or glossy. Mixing different types of finishing can also give different effects to the room, you know.
In essence, do not be lazy to experiment and often discuss with those who help build Toppers houses.
4. White Wall Color Tests and Experiments
The best way to test the combination of house paint colors is to paint directly on the wall. Therefore, prepare a white wall in your dream home to be used as a place of experimentation.
Buy sample size paints according to the colors that Toppers have chosen in the pre-made palette. In addition to seeing mix and match and saturation (remember, the color of paint in the catalog can be different from the original color when pinned to the wall), Toppers can also test the quality of paint in this way.
Toppers should see how the colors on the walls result in different lighting: In the morning, afternoon, or night.
6. Adjust the Accessory Room
Does Toppers plan to install accessories such as wall paintings, wall hangings, flower vases or coffee tables in the room?
Room accessories can be a good trick to enliven the atmosphere if Toppers are not too comfortable playing with challenging colors. So, even though the color of the house paint is only basic colors like white or beige, Toppers can add accents with matching colored accessories or light colors.
In choosing the color of the house paint, it is important to consider various things, from the bright color, the desired impression, the results of finishing, the appearance of various lighting, and also the quality and durability of the color itself.
Make sure you really think about it well so you don’t regret it later on.
