Transforming a house into a home is hard work. Too often, homeowners feel overwhelmed at the prospect of turning their living space into a dream space, and it gets pushed to the wayside. If you want your house to feel like home, the painting and decorating is key.
Notice the Lighting
As you probably know, the lighting in your home can change the hue of your paint colors throughout the day. Tape a few paint chips on the walls so you can visualize the room’s color during different parts of the day. You may be surprised to find you love a color during the early morning hours, but can’t stand the way it looks in the evening, or vice versa.
Get a Little Moody
The mood of a room can change according to the color of its walls. If you want a space to feel playful, veer away from the somber dark grays and blues, and head toward more vibrant shades.
Test the Territory
The importance of testing paint colors on the walls is crucial, whether you’re doing a little home painting job in your kitchen, or a huge commercial painting undertaking in your office building. Ask for a sample can of paint and get out your paintbrush; you may be surprised at the results!
Size Up the Space
The size of a room is important to consider when choosing paint colors or even paint techniques, such as tone-on-tone stripes. Your tiny rooms may feel overwhelmed by horizontal stripes or bold colors, which is why you need to be mindful of the dimensions you’re working with.
Finish it Off
Lastly, if you’re a little unsure about abruptly changing paint colors, you could shake things up just a bit by painting your walls in a different finish. Eggshell, matte, gloss, and satin are a few examples of the varieties available.
