When you are ready to update the look and the feel of your home, one of the best ways to do that is to change the wall color. The paint sets the tone for the entire room and home, and getting the right color is important. Some of the new trends are to go with a bold or bright color. There are also some trends that use wallpaper, stencils and other painting techniques. These are sometimes a great way to show off your own personal style. If you go too far off a standard or common style your home may be hard to sell when you want to put it on the market. When you put too much of a modern twist or too bold of a color choice you may have to repaint the home before you list it. There is an option that you can go with, that spruces up your home and still stays in the realm of what is sell-able. It is a technique that is referred to as Echo Design or Echo Painting. It is a great way to make a change and show off your style.
L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. Explains What Echo Design & Painting Is & How It Can Work For Your Home
What Is Echo Paint & Design: When you want to use echo paint to design the interior of your home you are using a family of colors. The colors are all in the same tones and they are used in different rooms. This is a great way to add some flow to the entire house.
