How to Select Paint Colors that You'll Love

Choosing the perfect paint colors for your home can be a very daunting task. When trying to decide between "custard," "sunrise" and "daffodil" for your baby's nursery for example, you may find yourself asking: aren't they all just "yellow?" Unfortunately the answer is no.

Any fine artist will tell you, by adding even the tiniest amount of yellow, blue or red to a paint color, you can change the hue entirely, and the same goes for house paint. Fortunately though, at The Home Depot, we handle the tricky mixing part for you so that all you have to do is pick, paint and appreciate for years to come.

No matter which room you're painting, be sure to purchase several of our affordable eight-ounce paint samples in varying shades to apply in small sections to your walls before taking the big plunge. It is crucial to observe and note how the colors look at different times of the day because morning light is drastically different from midday, evening and even the artificial light from your lamps and fixtures at night.

Another pro tip for selecting paint colors is to always purchase several samples that are a few steps lighter than your chosen hue, because paint almost always dries darker than it appears on the swatch and when wet.

When you shop paint online at The Home Depot, you can see what your favorite colors look like in various rooms before you even order samples. Convenient, right? Whether you're starting an interior or exterior paint project, you'll find exactly what you need right here, so start shopping now.
