Why hire a color consultant?

A color consultation can make your life easier, decreasing fear and indecision. It can prevent costly mistakes, and give you peace of mind. Each situation is unique and gets personalized attention. A certain paint color may look good in a magazine or at a friend’s house, but may not be appropriate for your home. Color Sense Consulting chooses colors that fit your space.
All colors have undertones which may not be apparent to most people. Yet, being able to identify undertones is a great asset when choosing colors. If you have not been happy with your paint color choices in the past, it was probably because the undertones in the room were not the same.
Popular neutrals like beige and gray have many variations. Beige may have undertones of yellow, orange, red, or green. Gray may have undertones of blue, green or purple. Can you see the difference?
A color consultant can correctly identify the undertones so they will be compatible. It is best not to mix them up in the same room or it can look odd. Hiring a color consultant ensures that your paint colors will work together with the rest of your home.
