Whether you’re painting your living room for the first time, or you’re interested in shaking things up, you should consider how your new interior paint job will affect the mood in one of the most used areas of your home. At All American Painting Plus, we know that you have it all together, but we want to ensure that your living room looks like it has it all together too! Which colors are best for your living room, and which colors can be used together to fully bring your living room together as a popular and welcoming area of your home? We’re happy to let you know with this post!
With fall and winter approaching, chances are you’ll be cozying up next to a fire in your living room in the coming months. Make your living room a warm and cozy space year round with warm colors like deep reds, browns, and oranges. These colors are strong and timeless, and will never go out of style. Warm colors are great together or on their own, so you have a lot of flexibility with this color group.
Blues and greens are examples of cool colors that are SUPER flexible for interior painting projects. These colors are tranquil and serene and will turn your living room into a peaceful and relaxing space for you and your family. These cool colors are also a great choice if you have white trim in your living room, as they pair with white exceptionally well! Both blue and green can be used in light or dark shades without being too overwhelming! Dark shades are strong and calming, and will make the room shrink, making it even cozier. Lighter shades will set a ‘light’ and peaceful mood for the room.
Neutrals are extremely popular interior painting color options. Whites, creams, and grays go with almost anything, and naturally accentuate the room and the things in it. If you have items like art or furniture that you want to show off, consider a neutral color or a combination of neutral colors for the walls, as they will not take attention away from the rest of the room. These colors are almost always the right option for painting trim and ceilings, however, in some circumstances a bold trim color is called for!
Another thing to remember when painting your living room is how your paint color will compliment the furniture in the room. The most important items in your living room to consider will be the couch, tv cabinet and bookshelves if you have them. Basically any big furniture pieces that are the main attention grabbers in the room. Clashing colors can be jarring and make your living room tense instead of relaxing! Before painting, consider if your paint color will clash with the big pieces of furniture in the room.
