Save the Best for Last with Color

Voice of ColorWhen you walk into your local home improvement store, chances are you’re drawn to the paint samples section. However, before you rush into a paint color spree, make sure you’ve planned out the rest of your space. In comparison to paint colors, most other interior finishes come in a limited number of colors. You need to consider the items with more limited options such as flooring and upholstery, before selecting a paint color.

If you’re working on your Jacksonville new home interior, your steps should look like this:

  • Upholstery
  • Flooring
  • Accent furniture
  • Paint

If you’re working on the exterior, stick with this order:

  • Brick
  • Stone
  • Stain color
  • Paint color

PPG Porter Paints offers more than 2,000 paint colors, so you are destined to find one that suits the rest of the finishes in your home. They also offer incredible tools to help you match your finishes with your paint color. The Voice of Color app allows you take a picture of your fabric or other item, pull all of the colors from the photo and then order matching 8 x 12 paint samples at no charge!

Once you do start the paint color selection process, be sure to consider all of your surfaces. The two most reflective surfaces in any space are the floor and the ceiling. This means your ceiling color can have a dramatic impact on your room. If you walk into a space and something is unique, but you just can’t quite put your finger on it, look at the ceiling to see if it’s something other than white.

Remember, paint offers the greatest variety in options, so make sure you save the best for last!
