If you are lucky enough to acquire large paper paint samples that are 1 ft.² which makes it a large sample that would be easy to get the feel for the room and you can place a couple samples here and there in the room to see what the colors will look like with different light reflection from Windows. You might want to keep the samples up throughout the day to see what the colors feel like in different parts of the day when the sunlight is coming in from a different angle.

Once you feel comfortable with your choices the next thing obviously is to have some sample pots of paint. You can carefully do some paint samples wipes here and there or you might want to paint an entire wall or a part of the wall to get a more accurate feeling for choosing the right paint color.

When our customers come up with some color choices which are dark I warn them that basically if you’re picking a dark color mentally you multiply the dark color darkness in your head by two because really what you see on a small sample when it is installed on entire wall it will look darker than what the paint sample looks like on small chip. And this is the reason why I suggest using a large paint sample card or painting a larger portion of the wall with this color.
