The trend of custom painting excites almost everyone but the bewilderment of selecting the right color harmony, tones, shades, and tints, make everyone stick to typical color schemes for both their interiors and exteriors. Even those with professional experience cannot advocate a precise color scheme, and hence, suggest the basic color choices that are high in demand or desired by the client. Some painters even suggest colors with fancy names to persuade the customers without even explaining their actual specifications. Italian Iris, Province, Berry Blush, Loyalist, and Turquoise are some names that are exciting to hear but have the least familiarity.
Expert artisans have observed that most house painters out there confuse the technical terms like a shade, tint, tone, saturation, and luminance. This leads to drastic confusion in decision making. The following are the actual meaning of the above:
Luminance: It is the amount of brightness or refection of a color.
Saturation: It is the concentration or the purity of color selected.
Tones: It’s the muting of a color by adding grey into the color.
Shade: The shade refers to the amount of black added into it.
Tint: The tint is the amount of white added into a color hue.
The color combination theories are confused as well. A color wheel is composed of 12 independent warm and cold colors hues. These colors are used either in a complementary, monochromatic, analogous, triadic, and tetradic manner. The brief introduction to these combinations is as follows:
Complementary: Complementary colors are directly opposite to each other. For instance, blue and yellow. Together these colors appear more prominent.
Monochromatic: Monochromatic means a single color used in different tones or shades. Together the combination provides optimal highlights and accents.
Analogous: In this combination, the three colors side by side are selected. Use one as dominant while using other hues as accents to create an impression.
