Psychology of the Colours

Does color affect your mood? Absolutely! Colour Psychology is the explanation of how colors affect our emotions, our moods, our health, even our well being and our mind.

The psychology of color, are used in designing everything from hotel rooms to cereal packages. Colours represent different things, and can represent different things in various countries.

What Colour Should You Paint Your Home?

Red – Great for encouraging your appetite. It’s why you see brands such as KFC, McDonalds and others use it in their logos and restaurants.

Yellow – Ideal colour for the kitchen. People say it’s great for metabolism. Gives the effect of energy too.

Blue – Seen as a productive colour. Great for offices and workspaces.

Green – Ideal for the bedroom. Gives off the effect of tranquility and health.

Purple – Great for the living room. Very calm and relaxing colour.

Pink – Obviously seen as a very feminine colour in the western part of the world. Ideal for girls rooms and other feminine things.

White – Gives the effect of purity, space and cleanliness. Great for bathrooms to represent cleanliness. Also great for small rooms to give a more open feeling.

Remember colour is a powerful tool that can be used to inspire emotions, create space illusions or simply set the mood and atmosphere for any particular room. Especially when used with interior and exterior painting, color psychology is a great way to create a healthy and beautiful home!

Psychology of the Colour


“We built our home 6 years ago, and in the process of choosing counters, floors, light fixtures and taps, we settled on painting our home one colour.  After living with that for a few years it became very apparent we needed some life and some colour in our home so we contacted  True Painters Inc.

The first job they did was a new bedroom in our basement, the bathroom and some feature walls.  They were extremely quick, so professional, polite, clean, and easy to work with.  They purchased the supplies, reinstalled all the fixtures, came in on budget and on time.  So we began referring him to our friends.

When we decided to do a makeover on the main floor and upstairs we called True Painters immediately.  We knew there was no point calling around, they were fair and their work was superb.  I had a lot of colours chosen for a lot of different rooms and they handled the job amazingly.  Even when I changed the plan part way through the job, they just bought more supplies, adjusted the quote, and carried on.  True Painters Inc. has now painted the entire interior of our home and when it comes time to redecorate again, I will trust the job to them.”

“We hired True Painters to paint our new basement development. They were highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed, they lived up to their referral. They primed and painted everything from ceiling, walls, doors and trim. They did an amazing job! It was not only nice to hire someone to do a great job but also someone we could trust. We have referred them to many others and will continue to refer them, as well use them again!!!”

“True Painters Inc. is the first painting company we have ever hired and we couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of their work. They were very fast but very thorough, neat and tidy and, we think, priced right. We also appreciated the consultation they provided before they began their work, helping with great suggestions. We would be very surprised if anyone, receiving the quality job we did, was unsatisfied in any way. We recommend them wholeheartedly. Thanks, guys! You are true painters in every way.”

What are the VOCs in Paint?


Believe it or not, It could be for Air Pollution.

Considering the damage Air Pollution already does to the environment and peoples health; you would not be surprised.

What are the VOCs in Paint?

You’ve probably heard the term VOC, which stands for volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals that give off gas from certain materials and liquids like the paint on your walls. These chemicals hang around our homes, sometimes for years, polluting the indoor air and causing adverse health effects. They could make you feel nauseous, irritate your eyes and impact your respiratory system. They could even cause cancer or liver damage. Some people are more at risk from VOC exposure than others. For instance, those with asthma, young children and older people are more susceptible to these VOC-related problems.

Eco-Friendly Paint  Protect the air quality inside your home with zero-VOC and low-VOC paints.

Some of the advantages of low/zero-VOC paints:

1. Low-VOC paints are less toxic and cause less toxic emissions.

2. Low-VOC paints have a lower odor and less impact on the air quality, which makes them perfect for schools, hospitals and of course homes.

3. Low-VOC paints are less likely to cause allergies due to reduced toxin levels.

Zero-VOC paint contains less than 5 grams of VOCs per liter of paint. Low-VOC contains less than 200 grams of VOCs/liter. However, to comply with the Green Seal Standard, most of the manufacturers strive to get less than 50 grams of VOCs/liter.

That is why our eco-friendly painting service uses zero VOC and low VOC paint to minimize our impact on the environment and your family or staff. That means no harsh odors or fumes when you return at the end of the day to your freshly painted home or office.
