How to Choose Interior Paint Colors for Your Boise, ID Area Home


Painting the interior of your home is a great way to bring new life into your home. If you are looking for a change and wish to complete an interior paint project, here are our craftspeople’s favorite tips on completing an interior paint project.

Interior Paint Colors

The color of the room is important. If you are repainting a room, you will need to only match the color. But if you are looking for something new, you will need to think about what the best color could be.

  • Gather color swatches to test your potential colors.
  • Lighter colors—cream, white, tan—will make a space feel more airy and bigger.
  • Darker colors—dark gray, dark blue, brown—will make a room feel smaller.

Experiment with your colors and think about the room you are putting them in. If you have a large entertainment room, it’s safe to go with dark colors since you have the space to make the room feel comfortable with such a color scheme. Play around with accent walls too because everything doesn’t have to be the same color—it’s all up to you!

Preparing to Paint

If you have your interior paint colors all picked out, it’s time to prepare the space you will be painting.

  • Remove furniture and items from the room.
  • Lay out painter’s cloth or plastic on the floor to protect from drips.
  • Line molding, crown molding, windows, and doors with painters’ tape.

Once you are ready to paint, line the room first around all taped areas, along the ceiling, and corners. Next, roll your brand-new color on with ease.

Explore your new room and possibilities with these interior paint tips. Make your colors pop and add that flair your decorating needs. Start planning and let your local craftspeople know if you need any estimates or advice on completing this project.
