Ideas for Interior Painting That Change the Look of a Room

Paint Color SelectionIt's pretty common knowledge that a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a room - and at a minimal cost. In fact, when it comes to home improvement projects, painting probably offers the best bang for your buck. In this post, we'll go over a few fairly simple paint projects that can totally transform the look of a room.

1. Accent Wall

Instead of painting all four walls of a room the same exact color, many homeowners and interior designers are incorporating the accent wall. An accent wall is basically just one wall (usually the focal wall, or the wall the eye is first drawn to when you walk in the room) that is painted a different color than the other three walls. Some people choose to make their accent wall a slightly lighter or darker shade than the surrounding walls. Others go bold and choose something completelty different. Whichever path you decide to go, the accent wall will definitely give your room a whole new look and depth without a high cost. striped bedroom wall [Read more...]

Best Ceiling Paint Color Ideas

You may think that choosing the right color for your ceiling is easy. White...right? Well the truth is, there are actually several shades of what most people consider "white." Go too bright and it could throw off the rest of your room's color scheme. Go too dark and it can make the room look smaller than it actually is. If you decide to go with something other than white, you'll want to choose something that will complement the rest of the room. Our team is skilled at color design and will happily offer advice on color palettes. Another consideration is whether the ceiling is indoors or outdoors (like on a porch). The location of the ceiling and its level of exposure to the elements can also determine what type and color of paint you should use. Certain colors or types of paint may be more prone to fading if exposed to direct sunlight or severe weather. In addition to choosing the right color, painting a ceiling can be a tough task due to difficulty reaching, troublesome textures and worrying about drips.
