Compare your paint colors with your flooring options to be sure you're picking the right hues.

Picking the right colors for your space can be a bit challenging. Often times, a color you love in the showroom at Ambassador Floor Company just isn’t the same at home. That’s why testing the lighting on a sample is so important when compared to just buying something blindly. To make sure that you’re getting the right color choices, for you, you’ll need to follow these steps from Stainmaster:

  1. First, take a look at the various finishes in your collection. How do they look together?
  2. Tale it all in. Compare your carpet sample, upholstery fabrics, and paint chips side by side.
  3. Check it in every light. Take the samples above and put them next to the windows on a bright sunny day, and again on a gray, overcast day. Do they still look great together?
  4. Finally, prepare for those sunless moments. Look at the pieces under artificial lighting, both in daylight and during the night.

If you do all of these tests and still love your combination, chances are highly in your favor that you’ll love it in your home.
