All these paint colours are designed to suit any room whether you want calming colours for a bedroom, bright options for a kitchen, or muted and elegant hues for a dining or living room.  

Also, consider using one paint colour just for a feature wall and another colour for the other walls. Choose a wall where there’s a fireplace or large window that could be enhanced by highlighting it with a special colour. 

Try colour swatches or samples first

Whenever you’re choosing paint colours get paint swatches to take home before committing to a colour. The colour can look drastically different from what you viewed under bright store lights as opposed to your home’s lighting. Your lighting fixtures will put a cast on the shade that’s different depending on your choice of lightbulbs, as well as the natural light that shines through your windows or skylights.

Or, you can also buy small sample pots of the paint so you can apply a few strokes of the colour on the wall and see how it changes its hue throughout the day from morning to night.

Choose a matte, eggshell or gloss finish

The colour may also look subtly different depending on whether you choose a matte, eggshell or gloss sheen. A matte finish is generally fine for living, dining and bedrooms or any rooms that don’t experience a lot of handprints, bumps and scrapes. Choose eggshell and gloss sheens for high traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms so walls can be easily wiped clean.
