2) Be practical in your choices
Think about the size of the room, the type of flooring, pieces of furniture you want to have in the room and any contrasting paint colours you have to match. If you let these factors be your guide, you’ll limit the number of decisions you have to make based on personal preference.
3) Make sure you both have your say
If you’re too busy talking over one another, you may fail to pick up on the fact that you actually do have more colour choices in common than you thought.
4) Score your paint colours from 1 to 10
If you have wildly different views, scoring the paint colours you like from one to 10 can be really helpful. If your partner scores a colour significantly higher than you do, can you give in on that area and perhaps have it your way in another room?
5) Think about colour intensity
If you can’t compromise on the colour itself, perhaps you can agree on the properties of a particular colour. For example, you might not like bright orange on your walls, but how about a more subdued terracotta shade?
