Color Consulting for Painting

Color Consulting for Painting

If you ask anyone about the most exciting part of house painting in San Ramon, CA – aside from the actual painting – they will most likely answer the choice of paint colors. As exciting as it sounds, choosing colors is the most challenging part of any paint project.

Why? First, the number of paint color choices can be overwhelming! Walk into a paint store, and you’ll find yourself lost in the sea of paint colors and shades carried by numerous brands. Benjamin Moore alone has over 3,500 choices of colors and shades! 

Second, many homeowners venture into choosing a paint color with unrealistic expectations. Choose a color, prepare a room for painting, and you’re done by the end of the weekend! However, the painting process needs to be taken into account in steps. Starting and completing a project in a weekend – including choosing a paint color – isn’t likely to happen.

Lastly, many homeowners fail to consider the other elements of the paint color decision process. Choosing a color is only a part of it. Now, you must decide which sheen (from flat to glossy) and see how well it will go with the furniture, decor, and adjoining rooms. It’s also a good idea to study how your chosen color will look at different times of the day and in natural and artificial lighting.

We agree that choosing paint colors can be a daunting experience. That’s where professional color consultation services come in! Custom Painting Inc.’s color consultation services will ease your burden of choosing the right colors, shades, and finishes.
