Painting is one of the simplest and least expensive ways of giving your home an updated look.
Choosing paint colors, on the other hand, can be difficult.
Sometimes using a process of elimination can guide you to the ideal color. We often recommend that you think about what the space is being used for; choose colors that compliment the other features in the space such as furniture, wall and window treatments and flooring.
The finish is another consideration. Most flat finishes will help to mask ceiling imperfections. For walls, choose an eggshell or satin finish which in general tends to be more resilient with regard to cleaning. For baseboards, doors and frames, as they are subject to frequent contact, a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish is a must, being more resistant to staining and easier to clean. A glossy finish reflects more light and makes the colors appear bolder and brighter.
If you are planning on selling your home we suggest using neutral colors.
Earth tones seem to be the most appealing to potential buyers, as they allow them to see their prospective home and visualize their belongings in the space. It may also make your home more appealing to those potential buyers who may not have the initial budget to repaint. We recommend you do the same for exterior paint colors, while taking into consideration the neighborhood, the overall style of your home and – and this is very important – any municipal restrictions that may apply.
