How to Pick Interior Paint Colors

Before diving into the interior paint color trends of 2024, it’s important to first consider the basics of picking a paint color. While personal preference determines what paint color you’ll ultimately select in your own home, there are a few factors to consider, depending on your goals for the space. If you’re seeking to make a room appear larger, stark white on the ceiling is a great option. Our standard white is “extra white” from Sherwin Williams. On the flip side, darker colors can make larger spaces feel smaller and more intimate. It’s also important to keep paint finish in mind, as this can greatly affect the end look of the color. A satin finish on the ceiling will reflect light and make the ceilings feel taller. The industry standard is a satin finish on walls. This finish will also reflect light, have more durability, and create a smooth polished finish. For trim, doors, and cabinets our finish recommendation is semi gloss. Semi gloss will accent your trim, doors, and cabinets. It also provides more protection against the wear and tear that trim and doors so frequently receive. 

However, the most important thing to consider is how you want the space to feel. The psychology of color is very real (learn more about it here) and can make a huge impact in your home. If you want the space to feel more social and welcoming, opt for yellows, oranges, whites with warm hues, and even soft reds. If relaxation is instead the goal, blues, greys, light purples, and other Earth tones are ideal.
