One of the big transformations that takes place during a remodel is the painting process. You’d be amazed at how much the paint you choose for your home can completely change the look as well as the feel of the space. This is why many homeowners are intimidated by choosing the right paint for their house. Jeff the Painter is here to share some tips that can help you choose the right paint color for your home remodel.
Should Paint Colors Flow from Room to Room?
Choosing the right paint color can be a challenge for anyone. It is important to think about the space that you are painting when you choose the right color. Most people are looking for lighter, calmer colors for areas where they are sleeping. If you are looking for bolder colors, think about putting them in areas that are high energy, like living areas and rec rooms. Some people are looking for neutral colors on the walls so that they can add color in their décor instead. Before choosing the color, think about what you want for the space.
Paint Color Reflects Light
Light plays a big role in what your color will look like on the walls. Before you choose the color for your space, you need to get samples and see what that paint color looks like throughout the day as the light changes. If you are painting a space that doesn’t have windows, like a bathroom, you just need to test it out with your artificial light to see what you like. Light in the morning vs light in the evening will have completely different feels since morning light is much cooler than late afternoon and evening light is. Get a piece of primed drywall and paint several of them with the different colors you are considering. Place them throughout the space and make sure you like the way they look at different times during the day.
Best Sheen for Interior Paint
The paint sheen has an impact on the way that the paint looks. Not only that, but it also has an impact on how easy the surface is to clean later. Higher gloss paints will be much easier to paint than flat paints. In fact, flat paint will simply rub off on your washcloth and you will be left with a damaged wall. If you are choosing paint for your bathroom or kitchen, you may want to consider satin, semi-gloss or high gloss paint so that you have the ability to clean the walls in the case that you need to.
