Room Painting

Paint is a designer's most powerful tool. And when it's used correctly, paint can become your most powerful tool, too. A fresh coat of paint can instantly transform a space from drab and dreary to fresh and fabulous. Updating your home with paint is easy when you use our expert tips and handy tricks that will teach you the best techniques for painting walls, doors, trim, and more. Start by taking our color personality quiz to find out which palette will best suit your next decorating project before you even pick up a paintbrush. Then use our free My Color Finder tool, where you'll be able to test different wall colors in one of our rooms, or you can upload your own photo and find the perfect palette to complement your furniture, flooring, and trim. Browse through our expert advice to learn how to properly prep a room for a new paint job, how to paint doors, and how to add color to spice up a neutral space. We've even polled our favorite designers and brought you their best go-to wall colors to ensure that your next paint update will look modern and fresh. No matter the colors you choose, our painting advice is sure to inspire you to create a space that's filled with style and personality.
