Painting the walls in your home can be a great way to give it a facelift. Styles and fads change over the years so you may feel like your interior colors are outdated. The color of paint can make a huge difference in a room by the way it makes it feel. Here are a few ways you can change the paint in your home to enjoy your space more:
Paint the ceilings
Some builders charge more for two-tone or three-tone paint so homeowners stick with the cheapest option. If you have two-tone paint this can mean your baseboards are white but your beige wall color is also on your ceiling too. If you have the same color paint on your ceiling and walls you can hire a painting company to come to spray your ceilings. White paint on a ceiling can transform a room and make ceilings look bright, airy, and tall. Ceiling painting should be left to the painting company professionals because it is really hard work. The preparation to paint can be very time consuming and you want to make sure it is done right! The pros will have scaffolding and all sorts of tools they use to reach the ceilings. This is one painting job you won't want to DIY.
Paint an Accent Wall
One way to refresh a room is to paint an accent wall. This can be a design feature or simply a complimentary pop of color that adds some drama to the room. You can use crown molding to create different types of wainscoting on the wall before you paint it too. Choose a bold color you love and go for it. Trendy textures, color, and patterns can help update your home. If you need some inspiration you can visit some local model homes to see what staging designers have done. Try looking at staged furniture showrooms for design trends too.
Tone it Down
Maybe you have used color in the past and would like to help the place feel calmer. If you have reds or browns on the walls you should consider choosing some calming colors like greys and blues to cool off the home. Paint can make you feel differently in your home. Choose colors that relate to how you want to feel. Look for inspiration online or start in the paint store looking through color palet books. Bring home samples and put the paint on the wall to see what it looks like at different times of the day and with the lighting you have.
Update the paint in your home and give your home an easy makeover. It will feel like a new home if you choose the right colors and do it right!
