Color selection in your home can often be a daunting process; the possibilities are endless. You’ll no doubt want to make an educated, enduring choice since the selection will both reflect your personality and induce specific moods and emotions throughout your home. Not to worry, ELCO Painting’s home painting services will help alleviate your stress and make house painting fun by working with you to determine a flawless color palette that truly makes your house a beautiful home.


The colors within your home should blend your color preferences into a pleasing combination that enhances the mood of a particular room while maintaining cohesion throughout an entire home. Interior accents and furnishings, lighting, and room shape and size will inevitably play a significant role in selecting ideal wall paint colors.

Some home owners like the continuity of a more monochrome palette that utilizes varying saturations of one hue. Other home owners choose two or more contrasting colors that work together in a room, while others choose to do something totally different. No matter your choice, we’ll make sure you find the color scheme that’s right for you.

There is no denying that paint color evokes emotions and affects our mood. Colors can soothe or invigorate, encourage creativity, and even help work up an appetite! When choosing a color, keep in mind what mood you want to create and how you want your home to make you feel.


Neutral hues can be an easy choice as they offer versatility and adaptability. Pops of accent color can be incorporated to energize the scheme, while keeping things minimal will create a simple, soothing atmosphere.

Blue is a pleasant, restful color, always great for evoking a sense of serenity in a bedroom or bathroom. Warmer, brighter shades of blue are also often used to relax the mood in primary communal areas such as living rooms or family rooms. When choosing a blue, find a hue that works within your space and avoid using a shade that comes off as too chilly.

Red, one of the more intense color choices, stimulates both the mind and the energy in a room. In a dining or living room setting, red hues can bring people together and boost conversation. It is important to keep in mind that red raises blood pressure and pulse rate, so beware of using the hue in rooms where you want to avoid over-excitement or a temperament flare up.

Yellow evokes joy and energy and is generally considered to be a welcoming color choice to pep up halls and entries, as well as dining rooms and kitchens. Like red, yellow also increases blood pressure and speeds up your heart rate. This is why deep yellows are not generally the primary color in an entire home’s color scheme.

Green is always a great hue in every home and has been hailed as the most pleasing color to the human eye. Green blends the relaxing aspect of blue with the uplifting elements of yellow. The color has a refreshing, calming quality that also draws people together – a perfect recipe for any room.

Purple has long been associated with luxury, sophistication, and royalty. Darker purples can lift the drama of a room and inspire creativity, while much lighter hues are well suited to bring a more tranquil mood to a bedroom.

Orange excites the mood in a room, and while this bold color is sometimes considered overly stimulating for a bedroom, orange accents and hues can help trigger an appetite in a kitchen or revitalize your workout in an exercise room. Paler peach or pink shades share the energizing quality of oranges and reds, but have also been proven to relax the muscles, thus proving to be a more serene option.
