When undertaking a home renovation – whether working within a small space like a guest bathroom or pursuing a revamp of a sprawling living space such as a great room – the use of color should be a major part of your overall decor. When utilized properly, color can help weave a story and set a mood. According to the experts at True Value® Paint, there is an undeniable psychology to the use of color – as widely varying as the shades of a rainbow. Color can be representative of one’s personality while conveying a feeling to each person who enters the room.

If you’re considering an upcoming renovation, think about how you would like the remodeled space to make you feel – relaxed or excited, happy or tranquil, calm or energized. In addition to the renovation itself, color can help you accomplish all of those feelings and more:
