When deciding on the color to paint a room in your home, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Bedrooms benefit from cooler colors, such as greens and blues, since they have a calming effect that will help you relax.
  • Rooms for entertaining—like a kitchen, living room, or den—are a good place to use warmer colors, such yellows and reds, to liven up a room.
  • Neutral and lighter colors are great for opening up small spaces as well as blending colors from different areas together.
  • Darker colors can make a bold statement, but they also can make a room seem smaller.
