5 Ways Your Interior Paint Color Can Impact Your Mood

If you haven't painted your home in a while, or since you bought it, it may be time to take on an interior painting project. According to HomeGain, residential interior painting results in 107% ROI, but its effects go beyond your wallet. When you choose to paint the interior of your home, think about how you want to feel. The color you choose can have a profound effect on the energy of the room. Here are five ways your interior painting can affect the mood of your home.

1. Calm and Relaxed

Do you find yourself constantly stressed out and anxious? Do you work in a profession where the stress doesn't seem to end? Are you a very wired person who needs some help unwinding when you get home? When you call your interior painters for your residential work, it may be best to have them paint at least one room blue or purple. Blue and purple hues have been proven to provide a major sense of calm in people. If you want to walk into your home and immediately feel at peace, those purple or blue walls can do the trick.

Take the bathroom, for example. A master bathroom is a place where you should be able to unwind and relax, especially at the end of the day when you soak in the tub or take an invigorating shower. Your bathroom walls can aid in that sense of peace. That might be why, according to Forbes, your baby blue painted bathrooms can give you an additional $5000 upon your expected resale price.

Are you interested in yoga or meditation? If you don't want your entire house painted in blue or purple, why not have at least one room meant for your yoga or meditation sessions in this color? Both yoga and meditation have been proven to help relax people and make them sleep better. Having a regular room to practice such activities can strengthen the calming effect.

2. Energized

Maybe you're the opposite of the person above and you're super calm, but you need a dose of energy at times. If you're often tired and worn out and need a boost of energy in your space, bright colors can help you pump things up a notch. Reds, oranges, and yellows can bring energy into your home and life.

Do you have children? Have you ever wondered why so many kid products are always in bright primary colors like red, orange, and yellow? It's because these are the types of colors that tend to attract children. After all, kids are boundless balls of energy, and these colors help to exacerbate that. If you have a children's playroom that you're trying to decorate, you can have your interior painting services paint that area in these beautiful bold colors.

What about a lively entertainment space? Are you one of the many homeowners who just finished their basement? If you want to liven up your basement even further, paint the walls in a red or yellow. When the family goes down there, they're even more energized to stay up late into the night playing games, charades, and other fun activities.

3. Hungry or Not Hungry

Have you ever noticed that fast food places like McDonald's usually use bright colors like yellows and reds on all of the advertisements and facilities? Let's just say these fast food manufacturers have understood the power color theory has on the stomach. It's been scientifically proven that people tend to feel hungrier when they're in an environment that has bold colors like red, orange, and yellow. So if you're someone who loves to cook and entertain, and you want people to enjoy your food, your interior painters can help you test out this theory. You can have your interior painting crew add some bold accents to your kitchen. Having your entire kitchen painted in red or orange may be overpowering, however, they can always paint the cabinets in such a color or add an accent wall. You can have a similar effect in your dining room by way of an accent wall near the dining table to encourage people to eat more.

What if you're someone trying to watch what they eat because you've battled weight your whole life? Maybe having too many bold colors near food might be too triggering. Luckily, some colors can have the opposite effect bold colors have on the appetite. Using colors like blue is a good way to have a muted effect on the appetite.

4. Open

Do you have some spaces in your house that are making you feel closed in? If so, it may be time to go over that space with a fresh coat of white paint. The kitchen is a room that people often want to feel more open. Your interior painting crew can go over your entire kitchen or just the walls themselves in white or beige. So if you have a small kitchen, this may be an ideal color to make it feel larger than it is.

Revamping your kitchen space in a color that makes it appear more open can help with the value of your home. If you plan on putting your home on the market sometime soon, having a kitchen that feels more open can be a much better selling point than a kitchen that feels more closed in. Remember, there is more than one shade of white that can help.

5. Sophisticated

As you get older, you may need to have a more sophisticated look in your home. When you look around your living room or your home office space, these may be particular spaces where you want to sit and feel like an elegant person. The right colors for such a feeling include black and gray. While you may think that black walls are too overpowering, the right home interior painters know how to use black to the full effect to where it can add elegance and classiness as opposed to looking depressing. You should also understand that all Gray and black colors aren't the same. Just like other hues can have a hint of another hue in them, the same can be said for black or Gray. In other words, your black-painted living room can have more of a hint of purple blue, or even red.

As you can see, painting your home over again has many things to consider. Sure, you can. Just focus on your favorite color or repaint the existing colors or could look fresh again. Or you could take it a step further and consider the mood that you're trying to go for. After all, your home is your sanctuary and it should be the place that you want to spend the most time in. So you don't want to create a mood that can have an effect on where your home is unappealing or boring. Whether you need to calm down, be more energized, increase your appetite, or open up space, the right colors are an easy way to achieve such a feeling.

If you're unsure where to start, our interior painting contractors have the expertise to guide you along the way. For further questions about color theory, mood, and how it can benefit your home, contact our team at Arclight Painting for more information.

Arclight did exterior painting on our house. Shawn did our initial appointment and he explained about how they would do the job and what makes them different than others. He is very detailed and humble that my husband was hooked and did not want to choose other company although there are other companies with lower bids, but you’ll get what you’ll pay for. Jean and his team did the actual work and they were courteous and always gave us update. They had to climb tall ladder because we have 3 stories house and they did couple patch on our doors and walls. Overall, we can recommend Arclight for your painting needs.

Thanks Stanley and team! I have no idea what I’m doing with house maintenance so it was great to have you coming by after the paint dried and checked that everything looked up to your standards. I won’t forget your statement of “well that’s not going to sell” and making sure you had a chance to come back and fix the issues you saw. Of course getting it in the first visit is nice, but having a professional check things over makes me trust your team a lot. Highly recommended!

We are really happy with the job Arclight did with the exterior paint on our house. We did schedule the job out for a year, which was really helpful. Throughout the job, they were very honest, had a good eye for detail, and were quick to touch up even after the job was completed. They also have a 5-year warranty on their work, which makes me feel really confident in their work.

Just got an exterior job done by Dan, Colby/Cody from the Arclight team. They were respectful, detail oriented and communicative throughout the several days work. Our neighbor was also impressed with their diligence and hard work and meticulous nature as they stripped the weather and wear from some of the wood exterior before coating and refreshing it for the next few years. They did work on our cedar fences to brighten things up from the dull gray wear over the last few years of winter rains. Clean up and walk-through was efficient and thorough, which they did to make sure we were fully satisfied with the work. Highly recommended and will seek them out again in the future for any interior or exterior painting needs.

I highly recommend Arclight Painting for your exterior home. They did a wonderful job of upgrading our paint job, including trim and 2 coats everywhere. Our house is two story on a hill, so they did a lot of ladder climbing. We are so grateful we did not need to climb ladders ourselves! They were always on time, kept us informed at all times of the schedule, did exceptional masking and preparation work, and were good to clean up afterwards. In other words, practically perfect! Thanks, Arclight painters!
