Freedom of Choices

Many people pick color combinations by clipping magazine photos to help visualize how the colors work together. Then there is the room or area that's going to be painted. Each room has its own unique use such as sleeping, playing, cooking or relaxing. Paint colors can help set the mood for that room. Colors can change the appearance of a room -- making it looko larger or smaller. The right color can turn and a cold, uninviting room into a warm, friendly environment. It can add accents to a room and even mask its faults. Other important factors to consider: How does the room blend with adjoining rooms? How does a color work with furnishings and decor? Don't underestimate the impact of the right color. These days you have a wealth of options from which to choose.
