So, it’s time to repaint your house!
As luck would have it, deciding on the new colors for most of the rooms in your house was a breeze. But when it came to your living room, you couldn’t settle on any particular color.
We can hardly blame you for taking your time choosing your living room paint colors. Your living room is, after all, one of the first rooms your visitors will see.
You don’t want to be too bold, but also you don’t want to be too boring. What do you do?
We recommend sticking to the classics. Here are five living room paint colors that never get old.
Soft pinks are timeless, primarily because they complement so many other colors well. They play well with white upholstery, light brown woods, and light pink furniture. In fact, they play well with many light, neutral colors.
They also happen to complement some darker colors, though whether or not they do depends more on your living room’s entire color scheme.
Classic gray is not to be confused with dark gray. While dark gray is a fairly safe bet, classic gray is an even safer one. It’s light and neutral, so it’ll give your living room a tranquil look.
Unlike soft pink, though, it doesn’t necessarily play well with other light colors. You can probably imagine why soft pink couches might not look amazing in a room with classic gray walls!
White is the most timeless of timeless colors. Of course, white comes in many shades, and no shade is safer than decorator’s white. It’s not pure white, but it has an extremely pure appearance.
It can lighten up your living room, and it allows you to choose pretty much any color for your furniture.
The one catch here is that white isn’t always right for your living room. If there is no source of natural light, it could ruin your living room’s aesthetic.
Cream is a soft color which can be achieved by mixing white with yellow. The mixture creates a soft color which works well in almost any living room.
Cream looks especially nice in rooms which have shades of brown. Then again, some would argue that cream looks especially nice with most colors, so feel free to play around with it.
Unlike the rest of the colors on this list, bright greens aren’t subtle. They also clash with many colors. Even so, they work well with enough colors to be safe options.
Keep in mind, however, that some greens can be quite bold. It’s easy to get carried away when painting with strong colors, so don’t be so quick to choose a shade of green.
