Interior painting and design is accessible to everyone, especially with websites and threads dedicated to providing information on a vast array of design topics. Updating the interior of your home with a new coat of paint is a great way to give the rooms in your home a new lease on life, especially if you are working within a budget. No matter the extent of your interior paint job or your interior design choices, a little expert advice can go a long way. The knowledgeable experts at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. have provided some interior painting design tips to help you plan your next home improvement upgrade.
Color is a great way to create a focal point in a room especially in a plain room where it can add some pizzazz to the atmosphere. An accent wall can also add to natural focal points such as a fireplace. The professionals at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. recommend using a darker shade of paint from the same color palette of the surrounding walls or if you really want the room to pop, paint the wall a contrasting color. You can also choose to paint your accent wall behind the sofa in your living area. This way you can add interest to the room without being distracted by the color.
Coordinating Paint Colors
If you are considering upgrading the paint color in your kitchen the knowledgeable experts at L.W Winslow Painting, Inc. recommend selecting a paint color which will co-ordinate with your countertops. For example, if you have a granite countertop look at the flecks of color that are present in the stone and use one of these as a guide to selecting your wall color. If your floors are light in color, use a darker color on the walls and if your floors are darker, do the opposite and add contrast by using a lighter wall color.
Paint Choices for Trim
A classic white trim adds contrast which will make your molding stand out but you can follow another general rule which is to use a deep wall color with a dark trim. If you are using a rich color palette a creamier color trim is the perfect choice. Dark wood trim looks great with bright colors and lighter wood trims look balanced against creamy beiges and pale grays.
Interior Paint Colors Throughout the Home
One of the most stressful times for a homeowner wanting to upgrade interior paint is the confusion of selecting one paint project at a time. According to the professionals at L.W. Winslow Painting Inc., the solution is to create a whole-house palette that becomes your master blueprint. The easiest way to accomplish this is to choose three hues that are common to all of the rooms, especially if your spaces are visible from one room to the next. To create continuity between spaces, make sure you have a co-coordinating decorative piece in each room. For example, if you select pale yellow, pale blue and light gray, paint one room gray but be sure to add an accessory in pale yellow and pale blue. In the next room, paint the room one of the other two colors such as pale blue and add accessories in light gray and pale yellow. This will connect the spaces so you can avoid the feeling of disconnection.
