Since there are so many options available, choosing a paint color can be an overwhelming experience for the average homeowner. Hundreds of paint swatches, produced by a multitude of paint companies, make it quite difficult to settle on the perfect color.
To make it easier for you to narrow down the choices, it’s wise to use a tool that the professional painter relies on – the color wheel. There are about 7 million colors distinguishable to the human eye and using a color wheel helps separate colors into “families” and will showcase all the different hues as well.

The three color families you’ll find when using a color wheel are:
Using a color wheel will help you combine a cooler color with a warmer one, for a beautiful contrast in your room. The color wheel can make it easier to choose your paint and wallpaper colors, but it’s probably best to seek advice from a professional.
