There's a lot of careful consideration that goes into choosing the right paint color for a space. Sometimes, you have to just go for it. Or, you can save your self the headache of repainting by giving this (fairly easy) trick a try:
First, take a picture of the space in question. Then, upload the image to Photoshop or another photo editor and sub in the different background colors you're considering. Loop it into a gif or, even easier, place the images side-by-side to compare and determine which looks best.
Yes, it does require some Photoshop 101 skills, or watching (and re-watching) a , but once you've got the basic how-to down, it will make your decision-making process much easier. Plus, it'll give you a much more realistic idea of what the finished space will look like than taping several paint chips up onto the wall. See how it works below.
If Photoshop is a little too far out of your realm, there's always an app you can turn to for extra color guidance.
