If you are still in doubt of which colour is best and scared of committing to painting the whole wall, do some colour experimentation first. This is the most important step before painting your wall, there are multiple ways for you to see how the paint looks on your wall. 

Buy a few testers in the colours you are choosing between and paint a large enough section of the wall. This will allow you to see how the colour will turn out and look on the wall. If you don’t want to paint your wall for the sampling, you can paint on an A4 paper and stick it on the wall. Do take note that you might have to do a few layers to get the right depth of colour you want.
