Here are a few tips to help you pick the perfect paint color. Colour is affected by the kind of light that it receives, so consider how much natural light your room gets.

A simple hint is to take paint swatches from the in-store paint department with you before deciding on a colour. . The light in the store will be different than the light in your room.

Once you have the colors narrowed down, buy a sample size at the store and paint a small portion of your walls in different areas.
