When it comes to painting a room at home, it can be difficult to know where to start, there are so many options available, but which ones are going to work best for you. Making sure that you choose the right paint colour will make all the difference in the impact it has on your room.
In the short post to follow, we will discuss what you should consider before buying into the latest colour trend and break it down for each room.
The hallway is an important space where you really want to get the right colour. Not only is it the first place that visitors will see, but it is the connection between all other spaces in your home. For that reason, many of us like to keep the colour scheme in the hallway neutral so that there is a nice, natural flow.
Hallways tend to be darker than other spaces given the lack of windows, so it is an idea to go for a lighter shade to reflect light. That doesn’t mean you need to choose a boring colour; you can still opt for an on-trend colour but do try and keep it to a lighter shade.
If your hallway is particularly narrow, the best colours are light shades of taupe, grey, greens and blues.
When it comes to decorating your bathroom, you need to have a think about how it is used, apart from the obvious! For example, is your bathroom used by the whole family and needs to be a space that makes yourself and others feel alert in the mornings? Or, is your bathroom a space that you rely on for whiling away the evening in a relaxing bath? Once you know what kind of vibe you’re after from this room, you can make a more informed choice on the colour scheme.
If you are looking to keep things fresh and light, we recommend:
- Powder Blue
- Light Pink
- Clean White
If you’re looking for a more chilled out vibe, we recommend:
Your living room is the one room of the house that you and your family will no doubt spend the most amount of time in, outwith the kitchen. It is also an area where you will entertain guests, so you will want to make sure that it is a space that you look forward to spending the time in.
You will want to look at colours that can make the room feel comfortable and inviting whilst exaggerating the size of the room. When choosing your paint, try to incorporate shades from your living room accessories such as rugs and throw pillows.

When it comes to breathing new life into your kitchen, there is no better way to do it than a fresh lick of paint. Luckily in the kitchen, we can even try out new shades by painting cabinet doors which is also a great way to mix things up. When it comes to choosing a paint colour, popular choices include red, white, blue, yellow, and grey. However, 2020 has seen a rise in bold blue being used to elevate this heavily used room of the home.
I hope you found these tips useful. Good luck with your next painting project!
