All About Painting; Give a Fresh New Look to Your Property – Grey Army QLD
An easy and budget friendly way to freshen up your home is with a new coat of paint. A bright coloured feature wall, a toning down with natural colours to all of the walls, or a new coloured room can completely and instantly change the feel of your home. Here to help are some top tips for renovating your home with paint.
First, before you start purchasing paint and let your excitement run wild, consider carefully the desired style and look you are wanting to achieve. For example, you may want to bring some sun into your dull kitchen with a soft splash of yellow, or calm your master bedroom down with neutral relaxing colours.
Also, don’t discount the spaces often forgotten. A great, fresh coat of paint in your hallway, or a new feature wall at your entrance can create a fantastic welcoming feel for you and any visitors. Even a fresh coat of paint in your garage interior can transform that dirty looking space into a fresh look.
Alright, so now that you’ve decided what look you are after, it’s time to get more specific. Take advantage of sample cards. Select a myriad of cards in the colour range that you are wanting and take them home. Hold them up and consider your options. If you have base or trim board on that wall, compare the colours side by side. Here’s the biggest tip: look at it again in different lights. Hold up the colour in the morning sun, late at night, on a hazy afternoon. The light differences are going to affect how that colour looks, so make sure you find one that you like all day long and into the night.
Don’t be afraid to ask an expert. An experience painter can tell you what paint types will work best, what colours will look like when actually painted and dried. They have years of experience dealing with paint, so don’t be afraid to ask your painter their opinion. It could be the difference between a spectacular expert finish or a costly redo down the road.
The final tip, don’t be too hasty to DIY. A bad paint job can completely ruin a room, and we really mean that. It’s one of the first things you and everyone that visits your home will notice. Crooked lines, cracks in the paint, chipped and peeling patches, drips on your carpet: they are all going to stand out, and not in a good way. Hiring a painter is just practical. Yes, it will cost a little more, but we promise you’ll be so happy with the finish you’ll consider it worth it.
