 Paint Color and Mood Psychology

Part 1 of 2...

Whether you're completely redecorating or looking to make a small change in your home, choosing the right color scheme can be very difficult - especially when you want different rooms to provoke different moods. The bedroom, for example, should make you feel calm and relaxed, where as the dining room should make you feel more lively and sociable.

We gathered color psychology information from a variety of sources and came up with this color list of common interior paint colors and how they can affect your mood. We are starting with 4 colors and will follow up in part 2 with another 4 colors. 

1. Blue

Blue is a very calming color that can make you feel centered, relaxed and serene. It is known to help lower blood pressure, clear the mind and help steady one's breathing.

While blue rooms are lovely to lounge and rest in, it is important to note that pastel blues can come across as very cold and chilly. Light, warm blues are great and are easily balanced with warm hues and furnishings.

2. Yellow

Kitchens are great rooms to paint yellow as it brightens your mood and increases your energy - something we usually all need in the morning as we make our way to the coffee pot. Yellow can catch the sunlight and leave you with an uplifting feeling of joy and liveliness.

3. White

White instills the fear of dirt in even the messiest of people. But painting your walls white or off-white is a great way to help make your home feel more spacious and open and the people within it more neutral. White rooms give an automatic feel of cleanliness and purity. The color white itself stands for protection, innocence and goodness, to name a few.

Painting your ceilings white or off white are easy options that go with just about every color and gives the illusion that the ceiling is higher and the room is bigger.

4. Green

This is a great color for your home office as it symbolizes prosperity and helps to reduce anxiety. It is one of the most restful colors for your eyes and is known to be restorative, mind-clearing and encourage composure. For those who love the outdoors, it also gives an outdoors-like, natural feel.

Reminder: Brooks Painting offers our clients color consulting with your paint project and would be happy to help walk you through the decision process!

Great job in every way- quality of work to customer service.

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

Very professional. Painters were very accommodating on the little things.

Claude V., Dixon

I wanted to have my kitchen cabinets painted but knew that that was a job that required skill and expertise. I called Brooks Painting and the experience from start to finish was perfect! Everyone I dealt with was personable and good at their jobs. They spent time answering questions, explaining the exact process, and did the work precisely as promised. They even did a few other small jobs (repairing and painting 2 water damaged ceilings) to perfection. And everything was neat and clean when they left! And the cabinets – better than I could have hoped for. Esteban is a master craftsman who was meticulous in every aspect of his work. The finish is smooth as glass with no imperfections. I couldn’t be happier!

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!
