Simple Expert Home Painting Tips

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Paint some large-scale
swatches to help visualize
 your color decisions.
Color isn't easy!

To get the exact color you will end up being happy with, do your homework and test a series of 5-7 variations on the hue you choose by painting a swatch of each on the wall and live with it for a while.

 Also note any reflections from outside. For example, if you have a large tree in front of a window, you may get green reflecting in and that will affect the paint color on the wall.

For your interest, here are three quick expert tips to further guide you in having your home painted:

  1. How to add color to a rental apartment with white walls or exposed brick?If you are living in a rental apartment or house, always speak with your landlord before making any design changes. Once you receive the blessing, go for it. If allowed, you can paint one wall, maybe it's the brick one, and it can serve as an accent in the room. Spend time in the room at all hours of the day to see when it gets light and where the light hits. This will determine which wall to paint and what color to choose (dark or light). Remember to note any color reflections.
  2. How to pick a neutral color for a nursery when you don't know if the child is a boy or a girl?
    Classic yellows, bright and happy, and greens, fresh and clean, will always work. Pair them with a crisp white for a modern look or a creamy taupe for a more traditional feel. Don't be afraid of using gray, too, for a really contemporary take on a nursery. Brighten it up by combining it with yellow accents for a complimentary mix.
  3. How to add color to the exterior of your house?
    You can be fairly liberal in painting doors and shutters, depending on the overall color of the house. Choose deep, rich, saturated hues here if you wish. Not willing to invest in a big paint job? Add color to the mailbox (or even the little flag) or paint house numbers on a planter in a great color that matches your home's exterior.

A.L. House Painting and Pressure Washing also offers staining services for decks, porches, patios, stairs and the house itself (interior and exterior).  All your home renovation needs.
