Painting is the quickest, easiest, and least expensive way to completely rejuvenate your interior space. A high quality interior paint job can bring freshness, color, excitement, and vitality to a home. Paint color and quality is the single most influential aspect of interior decoration. A different color paint can utterly change the ambience of a room; darker colors create a cozy warm space, while cooler colors seem to make the walls retreat. One of my personal favorites is the underused complexities of neutral colors which create a sense of elegance and grace. Find more color tips in our color theory article: Exploring Color.
High quality paint jobs are also a wise investment. Believe it or not, paint is a crucial element of the structural integrity of your home, providing a protective barrier for your interior surfaces. Real estate agents always comment that a high quality interior paint is one of the most important factors in the desirability of a home. Often times paint jobs are cost neutral or even a cost benefit when considering the additional value to the property. A nice paint job can run a few thousand dollars but the increase in property value will often be far more.
Thanks to technological advances and new creative application methods developed by faux finish masters, house painting has entered an exciting time where property owners have a wide variety of attributes, colors, and styles to choose from. Paint finishes are lasting longer than ever and looking more beautiful than ever. They are also more durable and less toxic than ever before. So take a look around your home and if you don’t like what you see think about giving it a facelift.
