Using a red is warm energetic and high impact. It is a fantastic paint color for kitchens and spaces where you entertain and want to promote conversation and interaction. In dining rooms it can be very dramatic. If you want your red color to be less energetic choose those that are less saturated or have some rust and brown tones like Sherwin-Williams Fireweed or Rustic Red. Because it is bold and can increase energy levels so you may want to avoid using red in children’s rooms.
