Not all colors will work for every room of your home.

Did you know that different colors evoke different emotions in the people exposed to them? That’s why not every color will work for every room in your home. Color psychology makes picking paint colors a bit more complicated than just determining which colors you like, but it can also help you create a more harmonious home. The following is a guide from our interior painting contractors in Westerville to help you pick the right colors for each room in your home:

The Kitchen

The best color choices for your kitchen include brighter colors and earthy tones, but you should avoid navy blue, black, dark green and grey. The kitchen is the heart of your home, and it is also a space that is happy and active. Dark blues, greens, blacks and greys are just too depressing for such an upbeat space. If you are worried about snacking too much while you cook, red can also be a bad choice, because it stimulates appetite.

The Dining Room

While red may be a bit dangerous in the kitchen, it is perfect for your dining room, especially if you like to cook for a lot of people. Red can stimulate your guests’ appetites, and it may even lead them to believe that you are a better cook than you actually are!
