Be bold in your color selections! Color adds texture and depth to a room. Dark colors do not make a room feel smaller, just as light colors do not make a room feel larger. This is a misconception, but do remember that brighter rooms are more inviting. You live in the space, you should choose a color you love. The wall color should make you feel good! This is your home, as long as you are not getting ready to sell select the color you like! If you are getting ready to put your house on the market the safest colors are neutral colors.
Common paint finishes are Flat, Eggshell, Satin, Semi-Gloss or Gloss. We will help you choose the right finish for your project depending on the look, ambiance and durability you want. The finish of the paint you choose will have a major impact on the end result of your walls.
Things to consider when painting a room are how much traffic, any wall imperfections, and the amount of cleaning the walls will need. Flat, eggshell and satin paint tend to be best for interior walls. Whereas gloss and semi-gloss paints are best for trim and woodwork. Typically, Eggshell is ideal for most interior painting. It holds up well and has a more stylish look than flat paint. Satin has a dash more gloss making it the most cleanable and durable of the three.
Gloss or satin paints hold up better to touching which makes them a good selection for high-traffic areas. They are easier to clean but, wall imperfections will be more pronounced. Flat, matte-like finishes will not clean as well but the wall imperfections will not be as noticeable.
It is a good idea to try samples first. The cost of a sample pint of paint is minimal in comparison to buying a gallon of paint. You will be better able to judge the color on a larger area than from a small color chip. Make sure that your sample area is a minimum of 12” x 12”.
The vast majority of the time we spend painting the interior of your home will evolve around prepping. Furniture and furnishings will need to be moved and protected. The floors will need to be protected with drop cloths and switch plates and doorknobs will need to be removed.
We will need to primer the walls especially if you are drastically changing the wall color. The primer will not only cover up color and stain, it will also add a layer allowing the top coat of paint to adhere better. Thus, a much better final result.
