Paint Your Way to a New Room

When it comes to decorating or redecorating, you don’t have to run yourself ragged by doing a lot to achieve your goal. Instead of replacing everything in the room, begin with the walls.  They may be as far as you have to go. Some walls in a home are white or eggshell as a standard color. These colors make it easier to paint and require no priming. When you are ready for a change add a bit of color to your rooms. Color has many benefits.Don’t be  afraid of color because you don’t want to go too bright or too dark. The way to avoid this is to use the painting resources at your disposal.  At paint stores and in the paint section of your local Home Depot or Lowe’s, there are displays with all kinds of paint swatches.

Within that display is also a light adjuster. Place your swatch under the light and move it from very bright to very dim to see how the shade of your paint swatch will change in different conditions. A room that gets full sun will make the color appear lighter and brighter than you might have intended. There are also online tools to help you find the perfect paint color for your every room of your house.

Choosing Paint Colors

…ask yourself one question

What is the room being used for?

In the living room or great room, the family will gather for television watching, holidays or other special occasions. Keeping this room light and airy uplifts the spirit and the mood of the room and its occupants. Go from white walls to mint green or light brown.

paint colors that fit with your tastes help the room “feel” the part. For a small bedroom where you want to be cozy but not claustrophobic, consider painting the room with a lighter color on the top half and the lower half a darker complementary color below a chair rail.

Choosing Paint Colors for Windowless Rooms

Rooms without windows need lighter colors to give them the illusion of light streaming in. Use light colors with wall accents for your kids and teenagers. Bathrooms are a prime example of a windowless room. I like to use a lot of light in bathrooms and a lot of mirrors. This helps the room to have a warmer feel and take on a larger look.

Choosing Paint Colors For Your Kitchen

your favorite colors? Combine them to create an inviting kitchen that fits your style. If you have an eat-in kitchen, consider using one bright color on the half of the room that is the eating area and a lighter color on the kitchen side. Without using other equipment, you have divided the room and opened it up.
