Stay Away from These Paint Colors

Whether you’ve decided to paint your home to enhance your living environment or to prepare it for potential buyers to see, choosing the right color scheme is important. To narrow your paint color options, here are a few paint colors to avoid.

Black. Painting any wall in your home the color black is risky. Consider the size of the room. Black paint color tends to make a room appear smaller.  Black also absorbs lighting, making a room even darker. A black accent wall may be acceptable, as long as the rest of the room is painted in light or neutral colors.

Bright Yellow.  Bright colors are good choices for kitchens, but a bright yellow is over the top. If yellow is the color you want, choose a very light shade, like glad yellow.

Fire-engine red: Red paint color in a room makes a defining style statement.  It brings energy into a room, however, if too bright, it can be over-stimulating.  Additionally, saturated shades of red tend to bring the walls inward, making the room feel smaller. Choose a muted red for a more subtle and relaxed feeling.
