    Choosing the Right Paint is the Key to a Cozy Home

    April 24, 2017

    Do you ever wonder how some homes get such a cozy feel to them? From one room to the next there's a variety of natural emotions surging through your body, but you just don't know why. The house feels clean, organized and relaxing. The mystery has been solved. The major factor is simply the color of the rooms.

    As you walk through the house, typical family pictures hang on the walls above the furniture, which sits on a nicely patterned shag carpet. There's nothing amazing in any room yet you notice your inner self feels peace in here, energetic in there and most comfortable in the room back there. When you leave the house those feelings stay with you a little and you remember your visit that much more.

    Those random feelings were stimulated by the room colors. Painting walls in your home has an immediate effect on your mood in that particular room. If you want those feelings but you're not sure how to arrive at them, the key is to know what effect each color has on your mood.

    For instance, red is more lively and probably good for an entertaining area. Pale blue is calm and soothing, a good fit for a bedroom and white gives a room a spacious and clean feel.

    Although it sounds much easier to spend a fortune on an interior designer, you don't need to if you understand your colors. If you need help check out the HomeAdvisor site. It has a fascinating color chart to help you decide which colors to paint each room in the house based on how you'd like to feel in that room. The chart is very visual and not only defines the mood for each color but example rooms are also displayed to give you an idea of how your painted room would look.


    In conclusion, it is possible for you to create your own cozy home with ease. You should use the chart and take the time and effort to paint the walls in the rooms. You gain a sense of pride about your house and you'll expect a positive change in your mood that you'll look forward to when you get home every day.
