(c) Envato Elements

When it comes to redecorating your home there are some rules that you should follow, but of course, it does not mean that you can’t do whatever you want. Even though it looks simple at first, choosing the right paint color is not that easy as you probably think, especially when you want to keep your house fashionably up to date. 

If you are wondering why the paint color is so important then you need to know that it can completely change the look of your entire home, so make it worth the change. Whether you like it or not, your house represents you and it should reflect your personality as well. It is like coloring your hair red even though you look good blonde – of course, some things can be done, but you better follow some aesthetic rules. Of course, it is always your choice, but be careful because you will spend some money and maybe you will regret the decision if you do not like the results. 

Not all colors, hues or other combinations are suitable for your home, so, one of the most important things that you have to do before renovating is research and documentation. Thus, here are some tips about renovating and colors that you should never use in certain rooms!

    Pink tile bathrooms!
    I had an idea to paint the ceilings in all rooms and halls one color–off-white veined with gold–and use a different color in each room. A color I’d pick for a study, library or man cave was favored by the Romans–a Venetian or brick red, maybe russet ..

    You probably should not paint any exterior surfaces in sea; brown…unless you don’t mind your place being mistaken for a UPS facility.

    1. Chocolate brown houses are as classic as architecture itself starting with log cabins To early barns and farm houses and classic tudors and Lake Lodge homes.. dark brown homes are classic so they are not as popular and fashionable at this time due to younger less educated and historically inappreciative people …I believe they will always survive if you look in any historic district or places like Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts you can educate yourself to know that chocolate brown was popular and will continue to be popular long before UPS was even in existence and you’re loose association with it is inappropriate and as important as comparing a gray home with a prison floor or a green home with the US Army all colors have their proper place on the right Home with people who have studied color for years and don’t allow their personal emotions to get involved with color selection. We have color trends and we have color style and there was a world that existed way before retro ranches which I happen to appreciate that includes early colonial homes and even early 70s ranches or contemporaries or lake cottages that embraced chocolate brown. Historic homes were often painted dark brown with barn red trim …do your research and maybe you might appreciate it more but I doubt it …reducing dark brown by comparing it with UPS may sound humorous but it’s completely disrespectful to a color that’s always been important in American architecture.

    Trump had destroyed this country ! He is seriously mentally ill !! He has some real mental problems ! That man needs help !! I can’t believe the people that are still following him ! That tells me something about their mentality also !!

    1. uuh souldn’t we be discussing paint colors? if you wish to call people mentally inapt why not target an audience in a forum that wants to hear your Rederic!

  4. This also depends upon whose bathroom we’re discussing. In a child’s bathroom, white would be a problem. But I’ve used it in a master bath with fabulous results; white doors, a wall of built in cabinets in white & bath & shower surround & vanity in white Carrera marble. The room had a bright, spacious & relaxing feel.

  5. It depends who is using the bathroom. Children ? White is a big “no.”
    But it’s great for a master bath. A wall of built ins, white doors on the closet, & white Carrera marble for the tub & shower surround & vanity gave the room a bright, airy & relaxing vibe.
