Quick Tips For Planning Your Next House Painting Project

Posted on November 19, 2011 at 1:44 PM

Written by Adam Coholan, an active blogger, remodeling, renovation, and interior design based on his experience working with luxury Fire Island real estate around the New York area. You can follow him on Twitter @Coho22.
A remodel project or new furniture will certainly transform your space but can be very costly, but you can still transform your living space without spending a small fortune. The fastest and easiest way to freshen up a room and make it feel updated is to give it a fresh coat of paint. There’s no need to buy expensive tools or invest a great deal of time into the project. With a little bit of planning and the help of a professional painter, you can turn any boring room in your home into something marvelous.

The first step is deciding how you want the room to feel. Some colors, like blues and greens, are more relaxing and will encourage people to sit down,relax and kick their feet up. Other colors, like vibrant yellows and bright shades will create an upbeat feel. There is no right or wrong decision. The only thing that matters is that you find a color that feels great and makes you want to spend time in the room.

When choosing the right color, keep in mind that it will look different in your room at home than it does on the paint chip in the store. Your home has different lighting, ant the surroundings and accents are also different. What looks like the perfect match under bright fluorescent lights could be garish in your softer lighting at home. Pick up a few bottles of sample paint and have them tinted to the colors you are considering. You can then paint an area on the wall at home. This way you can see how the paint will look in different lightings and decide whether it really is the perfect fit.

The final decision is to choose the type of paint you will use. This is based on more than simply personal preference. You should also take into account the room it’s going in, how dirty it will get and how well it should handle being cleaned. As a general rule of thumb, you can simply remember that as paint takes on a more reflective surface it becomes more durable and better able to withstand the effects of moisture and cleaning.

Flat paint has no reflective quality and will provide a muted finish. It will also wipe off relatively easily when you try to clean it, so it’s not a good choice for kitchens, bathrooms or high traffic areas. Gloss paint has a high shine to it and can be scrubbed thoroughly. This makes it the perfect choice for trim work, doors and other areas that will be prone to fingerprints or dust. When painting the bedrooms, living rooms and other areas, a good compromise would be satin or semi-gloss paint. They can both be scrubbed butaren’t as shiny as a regular gloss paint.

There is no limit to the transformation you can create with a new coat of paint.You can easily change the look and feel of your space, create visual borders or add drama and dimension. Choose your paint color carefully and give some thought to the type of paint for a finished product that you will be thrilled with and proud of.
