How to choose a paint color

Deciding on a paint color is no easy task. You CAN NOT simply look at a swatch and decide. Every color looks different depending on the light of your room and you surroundings. 

Here is a step by step of how to choose a color. 

1) get samples of prospective colors. Go to a local paint store and purchase samples. 

2) paint them in strips on your walls. All over your walls in many areas.  You will see how different one color can look depending on where it is. Number your cans and keep track of which color is where.

3) narrow down the choices

4) paint over the “no” colors with your pared down choices

5) confidently make your decision! For our dining room I used Ebbtide in a eggshell finish. I did this last year and i am still in love with it!
