Color Consultants to Help with Exterior & Interior Paint Colors

Sep 19

The most difficult part of starting a painting project for homeowners is choosing the right color palette. There are so many options for color.

Choose a neutral tone that matches everything. Do you plan to build your selections around flooring, furniture, and drapes? What and where should you use accent colors? How do you determine which colors are complementary?

We have been providing our customers with a range of tools for DIY color selection. However, there are times when it is just as important to have a professional look at the job. You may be wondering if you should have a professional color consultation with someone like an Interior Painting Denver Designer.

Color Consultant or Professional Designer?

It seems that most people believe that color and design consultants are for the wealthy, and that they must be costly. Although this might be true in certain situations, I believe it is not the truth. Most of these people are very friendly and willing to help anyone. They're also much more affordable than you might imagine.

A conversation I had recently with an interior designer from Pittsburgh revealed that the average rate for design services in her area could be between $55/hr and $150/hr depending upon the consultant's education and experience. These highly trained professional consultants are adept at creating a cohesive look for a home. It's easy to justify spending an hour or two to get a project you will be happy with for many years. The problem we have had with getting customers to work with professional designers for paint color consultations is availability.

Many of the most sought-after designers are involved in large projects such as remodeling and construction. They don't have the time or resources to do smaller projects, like color consultations. If you need to have painting done but not as part of a larger project and are looking for a cost-effective solution to your color problems, we have the perfect solution for you.

We partnered with Sherwin-Williams to provide personal color consultants to homeowners in our mission to assist them in the difficult process of choosing the right colors. These color experts are professionally trained and will meet you at your home for a consultation lasting 90 minutes. They will help you select the right colors and create a space that you love.

What can I do to prepare for the Consultation?

Doing some research can help you make your consultations more productive.

Color & Design from The Web - Browse thousands of photos and find unique ideas on and To show your consultant what type of theme you want, you can save and copy any image.

Choose Colors that Match Your Personality - Go to our Color Help page to play The Color Sense Game. A series of questions will be asked to narrow down your choices and help you choose the best colors that match your style and personality.

How to Build around Pieces in Your House - When choosing a color scheme for interior painting projects, furniture, flooring, and fabrics are all important. You should identify the things that will remain constant throughout your home's life. Carpeting and fabrics wear over time. Instead of focusing on what you will always treasure, such as antiques or wall art, think about the items that you will cherish for years to come.

Get Inspiration from Cherished Memories. If you have ever looked at old photos of family or vacations and wondered if you could capture the colors, you now can. The Chip It program can be found on our Color Help page. Chip It allows you to instantly transform any image into your custom color palette.

Use The Process of Elimination- It's just as important to narrow down your preferences as it is to pull examples of colors, palettes, and styles you don’t like so that your consultant can decide what to remove.

Involve the Whole Family Experts suggest that all members of your household should be involved in making your decisions. Participate with them in the homework and be there during the consultation.

What if I'm still unsure?

After you have done your research, met with your Personal Color Consultant and identified your palettes, how do you know if they will suit you? Test some samples on your walls.

Sherwin-Williams created Color to Go samples. These small Twist-n-Pour containers cover approximately 75 square feet.

You can see how your colors will look on the actual surface you plan to apply them for as low as $10 It's easy to see how the decor in your home and artificial lighting will affect your choice.
