Choosing the perfect paint color isn’t’ just about picking something that looks great on your walls—it’s also about coordinating with the furniture or flooring you already have. TikTok creator @the_avantgarde recommends using free fabric or flooring samples from the items you own to compare close shades of paint.
The color of paint you choose for your walls or cabinets can make a huge difference in how your room looks and feels but picking the perfect color can be daunting. Following these tips from TikTok will help you choose a paint color you love.
1. Use fabric samples to compare colors.
2. Order oversized swatches.
It’s almost impossible to choose a paint color from the tiny swatches home improvement stores carry, but you also don’t want the mess of actually painting multiple test patches. TikTok user @newbuild_newlyweds found the perfect solution—oversized swatches made from real paint that you can order for delivery.
3. Find the perfect white paint.
If you love a neutral home, TikTok user @mywellihousedecor has half a dozen suggestions for the perfect white or light grey paint, saving you some time scanning through nearly identical swatches.
