Paint for Every Room
Whether you’re painting a bathroom, dining room, bedroom or other space, we’ve got inspiration and ideas to help you choose a color scheme. Because bathrooms are smaller spaces, they’re a great place to get creative with paint. Whether you want to stick with timeless shades like black and white or go bold with a bright blue or yellow, we’ve got paint options for every taste and every room. We’ve also got DIY inspiration and tips for painting any room. Check out our how-to guides Dining Room Paint Color Ideas and Bedroom Paint Color Ideas.

Paint by Sheen
There are various sheen types you should be familiar with before choosing the right paint for your space. Below are the different options and the rooms they’re best suited for:

Flat: Flat paint is ideal for ceilings and areas where slight imperfections may be visible. Because it’s harder to clean, flat paint is best for low-traffic areas.

Satin, Low-Luster or Eggshell: These finishes offer some sheen and are much easier to clean than flat paint. They’re great for high-traffic areas such as hallways, bathrooms, bedrooms and playrooms.

Semi-Gloss or Gloss: Glossy surfaces are easier to keep clean, making semi-gloss and gloss paint popular for kitchens and bathrooms. Gloss paint is also a great way to bring out architectural details, including entry doors and trim. One thing to keep in mind about gloss and semi-gloss paint is that it’s easier to see imperfections in glossier finishes.

Painting Outside Instead?
Choosing exterior paint can be just as daunting as picking interior paint. Painting the outside of a home is a big investment, so you’ll want to make sure you’re happy with the color you choose. Below are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Look around the neighborhood to see if there’s a consistent color scheme.

  2. Consider the style of your home. For example, if your home is Victorian, opt for pastel shades. If it’s a Spanish colonial, stick with muted, neutral tones.

  3. Think about the mood you want to evoke. If it’s bright and cheerful, use colors like yellow, white or cream. Want to make a big impact? Consider deeper hues like dark gray or navy.
