Choosing a Color Palette For Any Room

November 23, 2021by Remodeling Consultants

Connecticut and New York are known for beautiful fall colors and the incredible four seasons. Just like the shades of the natural outdoor environment, the colors of your home set the stage. Selecting just the right palette, hues, and sheens is an art. And the designs at Home Renovations are here to help. Read on to discover our top tips. 


It’s not surprising that the color of a room affects your mood. Keep that in mind when making your selections. For example, calming colors in muted shades of blues, greens, pinks, and whites can be the perfect option for bedrooms. 

But if you’re looking to make a statement, bold reds, oranges, and violets will do the trick. Use these vivid colors sparingly. Otherwise, they can be overwhelming. 

Consider your goal for the space. Do you want to be relaxed or energized? Just knowing that can help your RC color consultant offer the best recommendations. At Remodeling Consultants, we help our clients choose colors based on their likes and the purpose of the room.


When choosing paint colors for your entire home or a single room, consider the natural light. Every room will look different throughout the day, depending upon the light. Before selecting your final colors, put a large sample on the wall and look at it throughout the day and evening. You’ll be surprised how the color can change dramatically. And you may find out a paint color you thought you’d love isn’t what you expected. 

The good news is that you don’t have to figure it out by yourself. Having professional help in the planning stage is a lifesaver. Whether you’re renovating your entire home or just a kitchen, in addition to the construction — choosing the right paint color palette tops the list as something you want to get right the first time. Besides color, selecting the right sheen is essential. Some reflect light, and others absorb light. 


Besides selecting a paint color for aesthetics, consider what the paint color can do for the room. If you have a study that you’d like to make cozy — a darker hue will do. For an odd-shaped room, either too long or too wide, accent walls can change the perception. And don’t just consider the walls. Take into account woodwork and doors. 

When you want a room to appear larger, select a single color in a lighter shade. Instead of having multiple colors that break up a space, a single color opens the area. For kitchens and bathrooms and woodwork, always select a higher gloss. It’s much easier to clean. 


There’s no shortage of inspiration online. But if you’d like to see color options in person, consider visiting our design gallery. You’ll need to decide if you’d prefer cool or warm colors and carry that throughout your home. And are you going for a traditional or modern look?

Besides paint color ideas, you’ll also be able to see how other elements of the room come into play. 

  • Kitchen colors – can range from bright white to muted pastel colors and should complement the other elements like appliances and cupboards.
  • Bathroom colors – depend a lot on lighting and whether it’s a master bath or guest bathroom and your design preferences.
  • Interior colors – for the central part of your home, an overall palette should be selected first in either cool or warm tones. 
  • Exterior colors – don’t forget the exterior. You can change the entire look of your home with an excellent exterior paint job.
