Cream professional residential painting project completed in living room

Your living room is the center of your home. It’s where you unwind with your mate, snuggle up for movie night with your kids, entertain guests and so much more. If your guests only see one room in your home, it’s probably the living room. That is why you want your living room to make a good impression. A lot goes into having a beautiful living room. One of the most prominent parts of that puzzle is the paint color(s) you use in the space and the quality of the craftsmanship. Hiring a professional painter to paint your living room is the best way to make sure your paint job is something you can’t wait to show off to your guests.

Living Room Painting Ideas and Tips


Keep it Neutral
Your living should be a reflection of the members of the household. This doesn’t mean we recommend giving everyone a wall to decorate in their style. Instead pick a neutral color that you can accessorize with art, fun statement pieces of furniture or throw pillows with patterns.

Make a Statement
Are you considering a bright color or deeper dark shade? A statement wall is a perfect way to try out your favorite color without overpowering the entire living room with extreme brights or darks. Considering a warm navy, pairing it with a cooler cream matter color is a popular choice. There are tons of options and combinations you can discuss with your painter.

Keep it Classic
While some people may find beige and white plain, the truth is they are wall color classics. The great thing about a classically simple wall color is you can change the look of your living room without having to repaint the room. New curtains or new throw pillows, and you have an entirely new look. If you plan to rent out or sell your home a classic paint color may be more appealing to prospective renters or buyers than a less traditional color scheme.

Classic colors are also great because they don’t clash with seasonal colors like St. Patrick's Day green or the pastels of Easter.
