How to Get Free Interior House Paint Ideas


Choosing paint colors can be an agonizing task. Homeowners may be slowed down by the plentiful choices in colors, brands and finishes. Make the job easier by gathering as much free information as you can from a variety of sources. That way you'll be committing just time --- but not money -- before you actually start the project.

  • Head to the paint store for free paint chip samples. Cards displaying every color imaginable and many brands are typically available for free.

  • Get ideas from home decorating magazines and their online counterparts. Search paint company websites for interior painting ideas.

  • Get an estimate from a painter or interior designer who offers them at no cost. Professionals have the inside scoop on which interior house paint colors will look good. You may decide that letting the professional painters do the job is worth the money.

  • Generate your own ideas. Look at your furniture, accessories, photos, pillows or curtains. Pick a color that inspires you and imagine that color on the walls. Or find a neutral or complementary color to paint the walls that will match your inspirational piece.

  • Bring a photo of your inspirational piece or the object itself to the paint store. Note the dimensions of the room and how much light it gets. Small rooms tend to feel more open with lighter colors, while large rooms can handle darker shades better. Consult a paint store sales associate for ideas and tips on the perfect interior house paint colors for your room.
