Consider the Function of the Room

When you are painting the interior of your home, it’s important to look at the overall function of the room. This will help you to use color psychology to determine what color should be used. For example, yellow is calming while red is romantic and bold. Choosing the right color is going to affect your mood and the overall personality of the room.

Keep in mind the various color trends for 2016 so your home is updated and fresh. At Benjamin Moore, Simply White is the color of the year because of the ambience and subtle beauty that it offers. Learn how to make bold statements by introducing high chroma colors into the room. Our clients prefer light shades of different shades of grays, blues and creams to keep rooms bright, but offer subtle hues.

Add Depth To The Room

You can add depth to a room in a variety of different ways. This means that once you have the color for the room, you can try and go with something artistic, such as:

  • Painting one wall with a bold color and choosing neutral for the others
  • Using various finishes, such as sponging or burnished metal
