Should I paint walls in color or white?


Should I paint walls in color or white?


Opinions vary, of course, but most style experts advocate the use of color for both interior and exterior paint jobs. A splash of dramatic color on a single wall or as an accent can be attractive and effective.

If your tastes are a bit more conservative stick to more subtle tones on large canvases (walls and ceilings) that will bring some life and interest to the room. It's best to avoid stark and cold white finishes.

The use of white for wall colours should be used for places that it fits. White wall and ceiling colours work well in more modern homes. Using white can be a very dramatic look in a modern home that has no trim and very little detail.

In extremely modern homes white is preferred. With no trim designers will look to kitchen backsplashes or fireplaces or the furniture to give that pop of colour that catches people’s eye.

What you have to remember with white is that it will show every mark, stain, scrap and rub on it. Anyone that touches your walls with sweaty or greasy hands will leave that imprint and you could end up spending a lot of time cleaning the walls.

Hiring an interior designer is the best way to go about creating that space; they will be able to help you get the look that you want.
