True color consulting is a time-honored and highly developed art. At All Los Angeles Painting Company, Inc. 310-470-9218, we have been helping customers pick the best colors for over 35 years. Putting color to use helps a home reach its full potential. Good color selection combines interior design, interior decorating and painting knowledge. We are familiar with color palettes from all paint manufacturers.
Many factors go into selecting appropriate paint colors. They include room size, lighting, existing furniture or architectural elements, and your personal color preferences. A general rule is that color combinations that appear pleasing are made up of colors that are sympathetic, complimentary or in harmony with each other. Colors that do not appear to be in harmony with each other are considered clashing colors.
Here are some things our color consultant considers when assisting homeowners.
Tips when thinking of colors schemes.
Homeowners can do a lot of the groundwork for selecting good colors before the consultant arrives. One doesn't have to leave the comfort of one's home when selecting paint colors because all paint companies have color palettes available for viewing online. If you request it before the color consult meeting, we can bring you a color collection fan deck that you can keep and look over at your leisure.
The easiest way to select colors online is to go to https://allabouthousepainting.com/picking-your-colors. This house painting information site allows you to view colors from various paint manufacturers. Click on the links to view the different companies color offerings. Once inside these color sample sites, one may simply look at and pick colors or one can go to the color visualizer page and upload a photo of one's house, room, office, etc., color it in and print it out. This displays a picture of the room with the selected colors for reference and viewing before painting.
Before buying your paint, All Los Angeles Painting Company, Inc. recommends that you view a test sample of the color in the space you will be painting. Draw downs are paint colors painted onto a piece of 8.5 x 11 cardboard. They are a convenient way to view a color without having the mess of painting a color sample or samples directly on a wall. The draw down can be held next to or taped up to any surface.
All Los Angeles Painting has been helping homeowners decorate their homes with the right colors for over 35 years. There is an hourly charge for color consulating. We have a library of color chips and fan decks from many manufacturers dating back 90 years. We have an extensive collection of Mid Century color decks and color cards. No matter what shade, depth or hue of color, Alan probably has it and can get the right color samples for you.
