Decorating your space can be a really fun process, but it can be difficult to bring your vision to life, especially when it comes to choosing colors. It’s not easy to find colors that will blend well when incorporated into your home, which can make the entire experience frustrating and stressful. At Monarch Paint & Design Centers, we offer color consultations to help you create a customized color palette for your home or office. Stop by one of our showrooms today to learn more about how color consultations can help you make the most of your home.

During your color consultation, our friendly experts will take a multitude of factors into account, including lighting, flooring, furniture, and of course, your own personal style. Each home and situation is unique, so even though a color may look good elsewhere, it may not work the way you want it to in your home. The undertones found in each color can make a big difference, but if you don’t know how to identify them, the end result may be much different than you envisioned. Our color consultants are experts in color and can help you choose colors that will look great together.

Combining colors in a room can be challenging, but it is definitely possible. First, you have to decide whether you want colors that are opposite and contrasting or similar and complementary. For a complementary look, a great option is to pull shades from the same paint chip, because you know they are at least in the same color family. For contrasting colors, consider options that are opposite of each other on the color wheel, like orange and blue. With our color consultations, we bring larger paint chips than are available in the store, so you can get a better idea of what the colors will actually look like in your home.

Not only do colors have an impact on the style of your home, but they can influence your mood, as well. Cool colors like blues and greens tend to have a more calming effect, which is why they are so often used in bedrooms. However, in living rooms and kitchens, you may want a more energizing vibe, so yellows, oranges, and pinks are great options for these spaces. Neutrals are a great option for any room, but without any pops of color, the space can sometimes feel underwhelming. Your color consultant can help you take all of these guidelines into account to create exactly the look and feel you want in your home.
