Newbie needing help with colors! Laundry room

Posted by sasky (My Page) on

I am slowly doing my rooms and remodeling at same time. I have a long narrow laundry room with a window standard size, a sink/vanity, broom closet, white cabinets over silver washer/dryer. The floor tile color is cream,sage,browns/taupe sutle pattern. I went to BM dealer,salesperson seemed rather perturbed that I was undecisive and had brought in nice big valaspar paint chips. I ABSOLUTE HATE those little BM paint chips. I thought she could color match or paint match but said she was unable to do so. Anyway the closest Valspar paint dealer is over 2hrs away and picked up the chips while vacationing.
She chose for me Aura gray wisp 670 for walls, as I was undecisive and purchased. She gave me some options for cabinets trim and ceiling as to Navajo white, sparkling wine, white christmas, manchester tan. the Browns Classic Brown or whitall brown. I have not yet purchased other colors except for gallon of gray wisp for walls. Can anyone please help with paint color suggestions to match. I have not did colors for over 30 years. The house we purchased in 1995 was painted off white throughout with white cabinets. I want a change! Help with suggestions.

Why don't you go back and hope there is another person at the counter to help you. I would not go during lunch or on weekends. Try to go after morning rush, Say 9:00 A.M.

RE: Newbie needing help with colors! Laundry room

thank you for your reply. Very impossible only the proprietor and a close relative work at paint store. Unfortunately not like a large urban center. I will have to rely on others for opinions and grab chips make assessment at home and just go to purchase. I am stuck with a gallon of gray wisp and have to make the best of it. Thanks

Perhaps I should shorten my question to what color would you suggest to do the ceiling and trim for laundry room that will be painted in BM Gray wisp. Thanks

I like Cloud White with BM Gray Wisp. I think it would look beautiful in a laundry room.
