According to Kendra Cherry, a psychologist, our feelings about color are often deeply personal and rooted in your own experience or culture.  And although you may love purple, it definitely is not to everyone’s taste.

When we look at possibly making some changes in our homes, paint colour is actually one of the easiest and most cost efficient ways to make a small (or large) impact.

Larger Areas

Of course, changing the paint colour on larger areas, like walls and doors, can make a dramatic change (or a subtle change). It may be as simple as adding a new splash of colour to make a difference!

If you are looking to sell your home, the best bet is to go with more neutral colors and add the splash of color with your accessories.  According to Benjamin Moore, “The colors potential buyers see when they enter your home should be neutral so that the buyers will not be distracted by someone else’s style. They should see the walls of your home as a blank canvas on which to project their own preferences and style.  But “neutral” doesn’t necessarily mean white. Using subtle colour can actually enhance the buyer’s experience, so repaint walls that have strong colours with rich neutral hues.”

Smaller Areas

Although most people automatically think of changing wall colours, furniture colour change can make just as big as an impact in a room.

    All of the ideas looks really helpful in making rooms larger visually! I personally like to use mirror magic to do this!
