Painting Tips to Freshen up the Look of Your Home



 

After some time, your house can begin to look a little worn or dated. With a few simple steps, your home can look good as new without turning into a costly project. One of the best ways to do so is with a fresh coat of paint to add a pop of color. Here are a few tips to assist you with the painting process.

 
How to pick the right color and finish:
Picking a paint color can be very overwhelming with the hundreds of color options available at your local home improvement store. Consider bringing home a few different options before deciding on a color. Paint large areas of your walls to see which paint color will look best. A helpful tip is to see how your selections look during different times of the day and in different lighting as lights and shadows may change the color throughout the day. Don’t forget about the finish of your paint.  There are many options to choose from when picking the finish of your paint as well. You want to make sure you choose the right finish for the area of your home you are painting.
 

How much paint will you need?
To save some money, try to purchase the correct amount of paint for your area. Measure your walls and bring the measurements to your local home improvement or paint store and have an associate help you select a precise amount. Don’t forget to buy an extra quart of paint for touch-ups, you never know when you may need it.

 
You don’t have to paint an entire space:
If you do not want to paint an entire room, consider adding a simple accent wall for a pop of color. In doing so, you can add some nice dimensions to your room.  You don’t even have to paint a wall to get a fresh look. A simple coat of paint on your baseboards or crown molding can brighten up the look of your home. If you are looking for a simple pop of color, consider painting a cabinet or other piece of furniture a fun color.
