Be sure to also paint the trim to perk up a room.

When choosing your colors...
Be sure to take floor tiling into account when choosing the right shades of colors. Pay attention to what gloss level you choose. Flat, velvet, or eggshell are great for interiors. A higher sheen looks best in kitchens or bathrooms.
