Tired of Feeling Bored by Your Wall Colors? 6 Steps to Find Inspiration and Rejuvenate Your Walls

Are you tired of feeling bored by your wall colors? Did you have the perfect color, but now your room feels dated? Or, maybe you just need a change, but you keep thinking to yourself that you don't know how you'd pick the right color scheme. If so, it's time to think about how you'll find your inspiration. By following just a few simple steps, you can rejuvenate your sense of style and choose the perfect wall color.

Six (6) Steps to Find Your Inspiration and Choose the Perfect Wall Color:

1) Start small - You don't have to repaint the entire house in one day, or even one week's time. Starting small will keep you from getting overwhelmed. Start by choosing one room that you would like to change first.

2) One of the best ways to inspire new decorating ideas is to look at pictures. Buy a few magazines. You don't have to feel restricted to home and garden magazines; think about architectural magazines and books, too. Consider anything that has a variety of pictures.

3) Use your gut reaction when you flip through pages, and mark the pages that have color schemes that appeal to you. When you finish, go back through the pages you marked and decide which color schemes still appeal to you. Sure, you'll change your mind a few times, but that's the beauty of brainstorming. Inevitably, you'll narrow your selection in the process.

4) Once you've found a suitable selection of colors that interest you, take your pictures to the local paint store and choose a sampling of color swatches. You'll notice, you're not actually buying anything at this point. It might be exciting to think you're ready, but hold off on those emotions. You don't want to paint the walls just yet. Color schemes can really be surprising. When you see colors in different textures and light, the effect can change. So, collect all the sample swatches you want, and then take them back to the room you're planning to paint.

5) After you return to your room, compare the color swatches and narrow your selection further. Make sure you look at all of the colors in both daylight and artificial light. Remember, lighting and texture can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of color.

6) Once you've seen the colors in the room, you still may be torn between two or three options. Or, you may just feel like you'd like to try a couple of colors on the wall before you make your final decision and paint the entire room. If so, purchase small quarts of paint. Paint a section of one wall, using each of your colors. Seeing the actual colors side by side, combined with your lighting and wall textures, will help you to finalize your decision.

Now that you've used your newfound inspiration to find the perfect wall color, you're ready to prime, paint, and leave your boring walls behind.
