Gray keeps the crown for the most popular and most preferred paint color for homeowners and they are not wrong. You have so many shades to choose from starting with warm, cool, light, or bold greys. There are some factors though that determine the intensity of the color you should choose for your room. Grey being a highly versatile color can provide you with a fresh backdrop for decor and will coordinate beautifully with any style, design, or aesthetic you might select for that room. 

Even though grey is a very flexible color, it can sometimes be difficult and challenging due to its shifting undertones and sensitivity to natural light levels. To choose the right grey so your walls look perfect no matter the light or the undertone, take into consideration some things before. In this article, we have listed some tips for selecting the right grey. 

How to Pick Gray Paint So Your Walls Look Perfect

  • The first step is considering looking through the undertones that are put into the grey paint. Undertones are other cool or warm colors that are added to the paint to provide nuance and different shades. They are added in very small amounts but sometimes light can make them show up more than needed after the paint has been added to the walls. To avoid this, do consider testing the shade on a part of a wall or paper before making a choice. 

 

  • Another very important factor that affects the way greys appear to the human eye is lightning. If you have a window that faces the room and you can see the direct sunlight, the greys will appear cooler and less blue. If you don’t have direct sunlight, the color will appear duller. Another lightning factor is the artificial lights we use (lightbulbs). depending on the color of the light they provide, the grey might appear warmer toned or cool-toned. 

 

  • If we talk about matching and styling, if you already have a furnished room and you are just painting the walls and your chosen color is grey, try adding the colors of your furniture as undertones to the grey for a complementary look and to avoid clashes of colors.

In conclusion…

Talking about grey, we can say that it’s a color that is not actually a color. As bizarre as it sounds it is true. Grey walls are just canvas that is fed by other colors around the room and the lighting source and behave differently in each setting.
