I often get questions about what colors are best suited for the interior painting of a room or house. Here are some factors you should consider when selecting a paint color for a particular room. You will need to assess the amount of light entering the room, the size of the room, which direction it faces, the type of mood you want to create, and of course your focal point or main inspirational colour. A focal point can be the colour of your hardwood, carpet, fabric or tiles already used in that particular room. These tips will help you make sure that your colours set the right tone and enhance your overall experience.
