Tips on Selecting your Paint Color
Anywho, lighting is probably the most important aspect to keep in mind while selecting a paint color.
First and foremost, you need natural light. A quick trip outside to get some fresh air and find the perfect color. The natural light allows you to see the true color of the paint rather than being influenced by that unflattering lighting we talked about earlier. The incandescent lighting in your home can cast too much of a warm color on paint selections causing them to appear more yellow or orange. Fluorescent lighting is a sharp contrast to this. Colors seem more blue under fluorescent lighting.
After the paint passes the natural light test, be sure to keep in mind the area of the home in which the paint will be. If the paint selection is going to be in a small dark hallway the color will obviously appear different than if it were in a sunny room.
