Have you ever walked into somebody’s house or saw a room online somewhere and thought, “Wow, this place looks beautiful and makes me feel so calm”. There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to design but a staple that won’t be going away any time soon is painting. Colors play an essential role in our lives as each individual sees and reacts to colors in a different way. Not just each color but each tone can have a significant impact on our mood which is why painting is such an important aspect to the remodeling of your home.
When you choose the color of paint for your home, how do you want to feel? As an example, we recommend cool tones in the bedroom to give a calm and relaxing feeling. While warmer tones like red and orange would be more appropriate in a room where a boost of energy or adrenaline is needed. It is so important to put some time aside when deciding on what color to pick for painting as it can affect us every day. There’s a reason why fast-food restaurants spend millions of dollars on research to find out what the best color scheme for their interior design. It literally affects our psychological behavior!
By this point, I hope you understand how important it is to spend some time thinking about what color your paint should be. If you wanted to do more research, Google has tons of articles explaining the concepts I mentioned in much more depth. A second thing we need to consider is the quality of the paint that you are using. Paint is one of those things where we definitely recommend not going cheap on. As my grandmother used to say “Paint cheap, paint twice”. With high-quality paint, your coat will withstand the everyday wear and tear of living for much much longer. This can be from painting your walls, kitchen cabinets, hallways, doors, patio, deck, basements, you name it!
Everything that was mentioned above should be considered for both interior and exterior painting. However, there are some extra steps that need to be taken when doing an exterior paint job. When painting the exterior of your home, we make sure that any mold or mildew is properly removed. The surface will be given a full power wash to ensure any coat of paint that is applied will be put on in perfect conditions. If this step isn’t followed, the paint may chip or fade prematurely in which you may have to repaint the surface again.
