Color probably will be the single most visible element of your home’s new look. And with all the color selections available, it may well be the toughest decision to make. View our Secret to Color Success to see the difference color can make.

Light vs. Dark Colors

Lighter and darker colors affect how your eye perceives things. Lighter colors tend to make objects look larger and closer to you. Darker colors do the opposite, making objects seem smaller and farther away.

Choose light colors if your home:

  • is small
  • sits back from the street
  • is surrounded by trees

Choose darker colors:

  • for a cozier feel
  • to blend in with natural surroundings
  • sits too close to the street
