If you are remodeling and find yourself completely confused on choosing colors, here are some helpful tips from HGTV,:

  1. Start Small. Choose a small area and start experimenting. To start, choose your favorite color as the main or accent color. If you don’t like it, then just try other colors you like.

  2. Think About the Mood of the Room.  If you’d like the room to be quieter, as in a bedroom, then you should choose neutrals or soft, cool colors. Use stronger colors for dramatic effects. If you wish to create a sociable mood for the dining room, then go with warmer, contrasting and slightly bright colors. For a more formal mood, choose neutrals and blue-greens. Be careful when choosing colors for your children’s rooms. If the colors are too bright, it can cause irritability in children.

  3. Pay Attention to Lighting.  Remember that daylight brings out the truest color. Be careful when choosing a color for a wall next to a large window. Bright or strong colors might be overpowering. Incandescent lighting brings out warm tones and yellows. Fluorescent lighting throws out a sharp blue tone.

  4. Add Depth With Decorative Finishes. Try adding reflective metals such as antiqued silver or gold, mica, bronze and pewter for added texture to the room.

  5. Follow the Color Wheel. The color wheel is a great reference to use for combining or fortifying colors. If you draw a line from the yellow-green mark all the way down to the red-violet, you will see that all the colors on the left are warm, and all the colors on the right are cool, then you can choose accordingly.
