There are surely many who have experienced the disappointment of spending a great deal of time and effort to choose the perfect paint color for a particular room only to find that color looks completely different on the wall than it did in the store. This is a common occurrence, and the main reason that paint colors appear differently at home than they do in the store has everything to do with the lighting.
Adam Kutner has experience with this particular issue. After investing a lot of time and money in choosing new furniture for his living room and a paint color to match the furniture, Kutner discovered that the color of the furniture and the color of paint looked completely different once it was in his home. After some initial frustration, Kutner decided to try changing the lighting first before he went to the great length of exchanging the furniture and repainting the room.
What Kutner discovered is that all he needed to do was change the lamps he used in the room. Once he installed a few halogen lamps in the living room, he saw an instantaneous change that made the furniture and the paint look as it did when he first selected it. By installing the halogen lamps, Kutner saved himself a great deal of time, effort and money.
For anyone experiencing a similar problem, it is best to change the lighting to halogen lamps before even considering a complete overhaul of a recently decorated room.
