First of all, we’re going to talk about some of the benefits of choosing a neutral color scheme, then we’ll go over some tips for choosing the best one for you.
Finally, we’ll be sharing a list of the fifty most popular Sherwin Williams neutrals. Without further ado….
Why a Neutral Color Scheme?
Some people prefer more color in their homes, while others like a nice, calming neutral backdrop. It’s all a matter of personal preference, but here are a few reasons to go neutral with your paint color(s).
- Neutral colors are sophisticated and modern.
- They provide a quiet, soothing atmosphere.
- They create a feeling of openness and welcoming.
- A neutral interior can be accentuated with a burst of color in other areas.
- They allow you to make decor changes without having to re-paint.
- It’s a good choice if you are planning to sell your home soon.
In Interior Design, neutral means “without color”. Neutral paint colors — beige, white, taupe, black, etc. — seem to have no color, but for the most part they do have colors in their undertones. This is something to take into consideration when choosing a paint color.
So, how do you choose the best paint color for your space?
How to Choose the Best Neutral Paint Color
If you’re struggling to decide on a paint color, take color psychology into consideration, along with the overall ambiance you want to achieve.
Understanding the way you want to feel when you enter this part of the house can help you determine a color family as a starting point.
So, how do you narrow it down to just one color?
- Sample, sample, sample.
- Complement your home’s existing colors.
- Consider your lighting.
You’ll want to consider your lighting, the existing materials in your space, and how they will look with any potential paint colors.
It’s ideal to choose your paint color last if possible — it’s much easier to find a wall color that goes with your flooring, furniture, etc. than to design an entire space around a paint color that you’ve already chosen.
First of all, I would grab a peel-and-stick sample of each color that you’re considering. I promise, this way is much more cost effective than buying all of the paint and painting materials, plus it’ll save you a trip to the store (AND they will arrive at your doorstep in 1-3 days).
Once you have your samples, bring them from room to room, looking at each of them in the different types of lighting. Make sure to do this several times throughout the day because your lighting will change significantly as the sun moves from East to West.
Look at it from different angles and place it next to all of your home’s materials — anything that you don’t plan on replacing.
Moving on…let’s jump right into the color list.
