When you are ready to go with a new look for your home, paint is a great way to make a fun change. It is also a great investment in your home since a fresh painted house will sell faster than a home that has old and damaged paint. The paint says a lot about you and what your décor is all about. When you are ready to make a change and have all your walls repainted, the process should take a little bit of time before you make your final decisions. You need to decide what walls and ceilings you want to paint as well as when the project is expected to take place.
New York Painting Services List How to Choose Paint Colors For Your Home
Do You Hate the Scent Of Paint: Did you know that depending on the type of paint you choose, the smell can be much less overbearing than another? If the newly painted smell doesn’t seem to bother you it is okay to go with an oil based paint. It tends to have an odor that seems to last a bit longer than the other option. If you want little smell you need to go with a water based latex paint for your new painting project. The paint has almost no smell and as it dries it will go away much faster for you to enjoy.
How Much Is The Room to Be Painted Used: This may not seem like a question that needs to be asked when you are about to paint a room but there are some different finishes that you can choose depending on the usage of the room. If this is a children’s room you need to consider using a finish that is gloss or semi-gloss. The reason is that it is much easier to clean hand prints and other marks off the wall. If you have a room that is not used much you can still go with a gloss or semi-gloss finish but you can also use matte or eggshell. They are not as easy to clean so be sure of your decision before it is done.
Wall & Ceiling Paint Ideas: When you are choosing a color for the room, you need to consider what vibe you want to give off and what style and color decorations you are going to use. You can use a color that is more warm and welcoming for a family room. If you want to have a room that is fun and vibrant you can go with a much bolder color with jewel tones. Lastly for a more toned down look that will go with almost any décor are the natural colors like tan, grey or white.
Color Combinations: Lastly you can decide if you want to add a splash of color to the room. There are many options for doing that such as an accent wall that is usually a secondary color that is placed on a single wall. It can also be one wall that is wallpapered to show some fun and texture to the room. This is a great way to add some dimension to the room and a focal point too.
