Painting is an easy way to get a new look. Sometimes it is difficult to visualize what an entire wall or room will look like based on a small chip from a store. After purchasing gallons of paint, doing all the prep work, and painting the entire wall or room, the color may look different from what you had expected.
The solution. Create your own paint "chips" by buying small cans of paint and painting color swatches right on the wall in various places. You can then see how each color looks at different times of the day. Take note too that your furnishings in the room can also play a part in the color you choose.
Once you have seen your color options throughout the day, you will be able to choose a color that you will be happy with for years to come.
