How to work effectively with a paint color expert?

by Amy Wax Amy Wax – International Color Consultant

Are you thinking about hiring a paint color consultant to assist you? Here are some tips for ensuring that your experience is a positive one.

Color is a very personal thing and can affect your mood. Consequently, in order to select a perfect color palette, you the customer, need to do your homework. Before meeting with your color consultant, look in magazines for pictures of rooms that inspire you. Ask yourself: what effect are you trying to achieve; how do you want the painted rooms to feel when you enter them; and what do you want the color to say to you.

When your consultant arrives, you both should walk through your home so he/she can get an idea of what rooms will be addressed and what your current palette is. Make sure that anyone who is going to have a decision in this selection is present during the consultation. Advise your consultant if you are keeping your existing furnishings, cabinetry, flooring, and window treatments or buying new. Be prepared to tell the consultant what direction the room to be painted faces and what lighting will be used in the room as well as when you are most in the room. Your consultant will also want to know what mood you want to create.

If you are keeping your existing furnishings, your color consultant will work with you to determine an appealing color that will complement the room. The consultant will help you decide on the hue and saturation with which you are comfortable.

Once the colors are determined, make sure that you create paint samples on white poster board and tape them to each wall in the room to be painted. A paint color can vary from wall to wall depending upon light exposure. Most paint companies now carry small cans of paint for sampling. Look at the room throughout the day to ensure that you are still happy with the choice even with the different lighting that affects it throughout the day. This is an important step that many people neglect.

A paint color expert in Florida can assist you in choosing a color that will work in your room, but you have to be satisfied with how it actually looks in the room. If you follow all of these suggestions, you should be very happy with your new hue!
