Whether it’s been over a decade or just a year, people seem to be timid by painting the interior of their house. Naturals are safe since they will match with almost anything—on the other hand too much intense colors in your house can cause a headache to you or whoever enters your home.
With all this information, how can one decide on what to do when it comes to painting your house?
First tip: You shouldn’t be afraid of painting your house.
It doesn’t have to be an expensive and tedious process whether you are changing up a room or just starting out. The important thing is that your house flows. What this means is that there should be a nice transition throughout your house. In other words, it can be quite confusing to someone who is coming into your house for the first time and has no idea where to look because it’s too busy.
Second tip: Adding a piece of art can change up a room.
When you think of painting, you probably think of painting an entire wall…but what about just a painting? If you’re not one to change things often, why not try out a piece of art first and go from there. It’s also a good idea to rotate your artwork throughout the year. If you have a few neutral-themed paintings, add those to the wall in the winter time. Brighter and more vibrant paintings are good for the spring and summer. Try getting various painting sizes and putting them on different walls of your house—it will draw the eye to look around the room as opposed to stacking all your artwork on the same wall.
Third tip: Don’t paint all rooms in bold colors.
As mentioned before, painting each room a bold color can be too much for a house.
Fourth tip: Think about your hallways.
Hallways are great to paint in neutral colors. There are always exceptions to the ryle, but it’s easy for people to deal with.
