Just Bought a House? Personalize it with Paint.
You just bought a new home. During your house-hunting process, you probably saw a variety of properties, some clean and well-staged, others with a very “lived-in” look. To one degree or another, you were able to visualize yourself living in each home, particularly in the one you finally decided upon. But still every home you looked at had somewhat of an impersonal feel. Here’s where a little interior paint project can help tremendously.
Express your unique style with new paint
Moving into a new home means populating it with all of your “stuff,” from furnishings and wall decorations to area rugs and kitchen gadgets. But even after all this, you may feel oddly out of place. That feeling will likely be washed away when you personalize your new home with paint that matches your ideals on how the interior of a house should look and feel.
A striking new paint job will all but wash away any remaining vestiges of the previous owners. Even if the home was recently painted, many new owners find it invigorating and rewarding to completely re-do the color scheme to their specific tastes. With a little planning and preparation, you can do the same.
What colors should I choose?
What colors grab you? What color combinations turn you on? Would you feel great living in a home where a singular color theme runs throughout every room, or are you the type who thrives on variety and surprise? Answering these questions is the first step to altering the shades that surround you.
Two of our favorite paint dealers – Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore – have vast selections of pre-mixed paint colors, most of which you’ve probably never even heard of. If you have a color in mind that isn’t already available, advanced paint-matching technology will allow you to perfectly duplicate any color, whether it’s on a leaf, a flower, a tablecloth, a photograph or any other object.
In other words, whatever colors you wish to bring into your home, you won’t have any trouble finding them. You can even go on a color journey before heading out to the paint store. Check out the Find & Explore Colors section of the Sherwin-Williams website and the Personal Color Viewer from Benjamin Moore. Both tools will help you get a good handle on how you want every room in your home to look.
To further supercharge your creativity, check out books and magazines with photos of home interiors. Pay attention to color schemes in the homes of friends and family when you visit. Determine what you think would work in your home and what wouldn’t.
As to the actual painting, the process involves many steps, and the best jobs are the ones where care is taken at every point from start to finish. You can bypass the lengthy amount of work and trust a team of professionals, like those at Franklin Painting, to produce an immaculate result.
