Why Use Grey for Interior Painting

White, ivory, beige, brown and grey are all considered to be neutral colours when it comes to interior painting. Many people tend to avoid using grey for their interior painting project because they fear that it will be boring or make their home look too dark inside. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Grey is a very versatile colour that can match well with other colours in your house and make other colours like accent walls stand out in a way that other neutral colours cannot. Every interior painting company will be the first to tell you that grey is one of the best choices for any room in your home.

Grey makes Bright Colours Brighter

Grey isn’t usually a favourite colour for anyone. Most people tend to opt for red, blue, pink or purple and tend to use it for accent walls. Using a grey colour for the main paint colour of a room can help your accent colours stand out better while appearing more vibrant and bright at the same time.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Grey comes in a lot of different shades, ranging from very light and subtle greys to almost black, many with very deep undertones that suggest complex colours hiding just beneath the surface. If you want to accent a room with a yellow colour, opt for a medium to darker shade of grey which will complement the yellow well. Blue walls tend to work well with dark or light greys, but many people tend to opt for the lighter greys over the darker greys to help their room feel brighter as a whole.

Always Test Your Colours

When it comes to painting, it’s always a good idea to test out a specific colour before committing to it. When you hire an interior painting company, they will help you select and test various colours before selecting a colour for your final decision. If you opt to do the painting yourself, most paint and hardware stores can mix an eight-ounce sample can of the colour of your choice for a very minimal fee. Paint various sample colours side by side on one wall, allow it to dry fully and look at it from a distance to see the true colours.

Grey is definitely a great choice for any interior painting project.
