When it comes to painting your home, selecting the right color is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The color of your home not only affects its aesthetic appeal but also influences your mood and overall experience. At California Energy Contractors, we understand the significance of this decision, and our unique approach ensures that you choose the perfect home color that suits your lifestyle and preferences.

At California Energy Contractors, before starting your home painting project, we visit your home for a pre-application inspection. This is where we cover a few details on how to select the perfect home color:

Understanding Your Routine

One of the first steps in our process is to understand your daily routine. We ask whether you’re retired or not, and this seemingly unconventional question serves a crucial purpose. By determining how often you spend time at home, we can tailor our recommendations to match the times of the day when you’re most likely to observe your home. For instance, if your mornings are spent on the porch sipping coffee, or if you arrive home in the late afternoon, the lighting conditions can significantly impact how your chosen color appears.

Considering Lighting Conditions

Consider the shade of your home during the time you’re most present. If you arrive home in the late afternoon, your house might have shading. In such cases, it’s essential to choose a color that remains vibrant and visible during that specific time of day. Our goal is to ensure that you love the color of your home during the times you most see it.

Evaluating Specific Areas

To further refine your color choice, evaluate the areas of your home where you spend the most time. Whether it’s the front porch or the backyard, each side of your house receives different lighting conditions at different times of day. Select the side that matters most to you and test various paint color samples during the times you’re likely to be around. Purchase small cans of paint and apply them in significant patches to observe how each color appears in different lighting situations.

Drawing Inspiration from Your Surroundings

Drawing inspiration from your surroundings is another effective strategy. Take a drive around your neighborhood and make note of colors that catch your eye. This not only provides inspiration but also helps you avoid colors you might dislike. Your neighborhood can serve as a valuable palette for ideas that resonate with your taste and the overall ambiance you wish to create.

Involving the Decision-Maker

Understanding that color perception varies among individuals due to differences in color blindness levels, we recommend involving the key decision-maker in the process. Identify the king or queen of the house and let them take the lead in selecting the color. This ensures that the chosen color aligns with the preferences of the person who will likely spend the most time in and around the home.
