Whatever decision you make, follow these simple tips to select the color for the walls interiors and exteriors:


Weather proof!

While selecting the paint for the exterior of the house, always go with the light shades available with weather proof paints. Since outer walls of the house will have to bear with the changes of the weather, it has to be strong enough to tolerate them. You cannot repaint the outer walls every other month, isn’t it? Avoid using to bright shades for the outer walls. The color should be well in accordance with the surroundings and landscaping in the front as well as backyard.


Color selection for rooms!

Every room in the house has a different use; hence, the color selection should be variable as well. Avoid using too vibrant shades for the bedroom since it needs to present a subtle relaxing ambience. For the living room, try to go with the brighter shades to keep mood bright throughout the day. For kids’ room, choose kiddies colors as per their choices. You can go with the color combination using two or three different shades to create luxurious effect in the house.


Washable and stain proof!

It is not possible to paint the house every now and then, especially when a particular section has stains. Even repainting that small area can make the wall look dull due to the color difference. Avoid all these issues by using washable and stain proof paint on the walls. These can be cleaned without much hassle, keeping your walls like new.


Chip resistant!

Whichever paint you might use, try to have the chip resistant especially if you have faced chipping of the paint in the past.
