Choosing an Interior Colour Palette

If you are puzzled about choosing your colour palette for repainting your home interior then this article is for you. In today’s blog article, we are going to talk about some of the major considerations when choosing interior colour palettes. Every home needs occasional interior repainting when age and wear and tear start to make the walls look worn. We will give you some tips on how to make a good choice.

Personal Taste vs. Resale

If you are planning to stay in your home for a long time, say, more than 10 years, then choose colours that you like and speak to you. It’s not necessary to follow design trends or anyone else’s advice if it’s only you that you have to please.

However, if you are planning to sell your home, then it would be a good idea to follow current design trends and pick neutral colours. That way, new potential buyers will view your home as fresh and current. By the way, the 2022 colour trends for interior walls are earth tones: off-white, white/linen, white with a touch of gray or sand, and pale, mossy greens.

Consider Your Exterior

It is not absolutely necessary to follow cues from your home exterior, but you may be pleased with the overall result if you do try to pick related colours. So, for example, a home that has a black, gray, and white exterior would benefit from having similar colours echoed in the inside.

Consider Other Rooms

If you are not repainting every room at the same time, then try carry similar related colours throughout the house. Cohesion and repetition are major design principles, and you house will look more “put together” or finished if you stick to a similar colour palette in most or all the rooms.


For inspiration, look online at photos of rooms finished in different colours. Some of the paint companies have website tools that allow you to view the same room in several colours. Ask your painter what he or she thinks. He or she will have photos to show you and experience painting lots of homes.
