When building your new custom home in Edmonton, one of the most exciting stages is making selections. Being able to choose the elements of design for your new custom home such as materials, stairs, windows, countertops and colours can be the most enjoyable part of your project.  

For many homeowners, this can be complex because it is the moment to express themselves through features such as painting colours, but with the guidance of your experienced Edmonton custom home builder and even an interior designer, your experience can become less daunting. The colour scheme in your new custom home is an essential component because it is a direct reflection of your personality and style. Choosing the right interior and exterior colours for your new home in Edmonton involves more than only selecting tone samples. That is why Edmonton Custom Home Builders has prepared a list of some tips to help you choose the right colour scheme for your home.

Choosing the Right Exterior Colour of your New Home in Edmonton

At this point, you may have chosen the exterior finishing material of your luxury custom home and may want to add some exterior colour to give the final touch to your home. Now you should take into account the surroundings of your property and the overall look of the community. It is not about painting the exterior of your house in the same colour as your neighbour but instead choosing a tone that makes your home blend in. We usually recommend going with off-whites and greyish tones as they give your exterior a polished and elegant look, but the colour combinations are endless. If you can’t decide on the right combination you can explore your options by applying samples and comparing which tones look the best for your exteriors during day and night time. 

Painting your New Custom Home Interiors

A good tip to start the painting process is beginning with the most centrally located room of your home. This means you could probably start with the kitchen or the living room palette and slowly keep expanding to other areas. When selecting the tones that perfectly pair with the custom home design of these central areas, it is probably a good idea to take advantage of natural light and consider all the walls that you can visualize from these areas. Sometimes, a monochromatic approach will help you with these rooms. This means combining different shades of the same hue. At Edmonton Custom Home Builders, we suggest you buy test paint pots first as sample cards are not always 100% accurate. 

Picking the Colours for each Room of your Edmonton Custom Home

When it comes to choosing your interior colour palette, it is essential that you take a moment to think about the effect you want each room to have. Remember that colours can directly influence our mood. If you want a soothing effect, you can't go wrong with subtle neutrals, while if you are going to make a visual impact, vibrant tones are the way to go. To find some excellent colour inspiration, we recommend you use the colour wheel. You can prefer an analogous approach by choosing colours that appear next to each other on the wheel, or a complementary approach by selecting two opposing colours to create an even bolder look. Another beautiful custom home design tip is that usually, colours that go well together in nature are also good paint combinations.
