Paint Color Ideas for Bay Area Homes
Have you ever gotten tired of the paint in your home, but you couldn’t come up with any ideas that you liked better? Sometimes we look at the same tired walls so long that we can’t picture anything else there. So how can you escape this rut? What are some of the best places to gather paint color ideas for your Bay Area home?
One of the most prolific sources of paint color ideas is Houzz.com, a site dedicated to connecting homeowners to the ideas and contractors that will help them craft the house they love! You can do all kinds of searches for paint color ideas, localized by region. For example:
- San Francisco Interior Paint Colors
- San Francisco Exterior Paint Colors
- Traditional Paint Colors in San Francisco
Otherwise, if you prefer a broader search, you can browse ideas from all over the country and sort by style:
Another popular place to go for paint color ideas is Pinterest. Again, you have a nearly unlimited means of searching and filtering the images to get just the perfect ideas for your home:
Technology has provided us with some amazing and powerful new tools for trying out color ideas. For example, you can try Benjamin Moore’s color visualizer, which allows you to apply a host of colors to rooms and see what combinations you like. You can even upload a photo from your own house and virtually apply colors to the walls, letting you see how those colors would actually look in your home!
Not to be outdone, Sherwin Williams also has a great set of tools for gathering paint color ideas. Check out their color inspiration page for homeowners on the Sherwin Williams website.
If all of these sources don’t help you pick the perfect color scheme, here’s one more idea to try. Take a set of dice, and paint each side of each di a different color. Roll the dice, and whichever colors face up, run with them! (OK, so that wasn’t sincere advice… we don’t recommend this method!)
