4 Ways to Freshen up Your Home’s Interior with the Paint Brush

It’s not uncommon to see homeowners grow tired of their interiors; often we need to spice things up and give our house a fresh new look. There are many ways to do this, the first of which involves a entire repaint. Unfortunately this is a big job that is timely and often costly too. Another option is to repaint one aspect of a room to change the atmosphere and overall look. Let’s take a look at some popular examples.

Feature Wall

Whether you simply paint it a different colour or use specific decorative elements such as wood paneling, a feature wall can truly transform a room and create an entirely new look. The trick is to choose the right colour; generally we’d recommend going with a particularly bold shade where the rooms other colours are quite neutral. A contrasting colour will have the effect of drawing the eye of people that enter the room.

You can also try to emphasise it with the positioning of your furniture and other items. For instance the wall at the head of the bed, the wall at the end of the long table, etc.

Repaint the Front Door

This is a great way to liven things up, especially if you use a brighter colour than is the norm. There is something of a trend of homeowners doing this; colours like torquise, bright yellow and stately red can be very effective, although it depend entirely on the style of your home as to whether this looks fresh and unique, or plain odd.

If your home has a old Victorian style, bright colours might not work so well. Be bold but don’t get too crazy.

Painting Hardwood Floors

This is another way to give a room an entirely new look and feel. Overhauling your hardwood floors and mixing up the colour is certainly going to be a noticeable change. That hardwood brown is such a classic look and has been in vogue for years now, but don’t count out splashing some paint on there as this can really freshen things up.

However again there is always the chance that the colour you choose looks ridiculous, so do your research and perhaps even have a chat to a colur consultant if you’re going down this road. We’d usually recommend going with softer tones such as whites, creams and light blues.

Painting the Ceiling

If a room is lacking a sense of style or identity, repainting the ceiling can be a winning move. It can work in a similar way to a feature wall and invariably draw your eyes upwards, so we’d recommend complementing this by making sure the room has so in a room with plenty of interesting decorative items to keep people in the room grounded, so to speak. Colour-wise, you’ll usually want to have it contrasting with the other shades used around the room. We’ve seen everything from mauve green, violet and red orange to yellow and white strips work well. There is special ceiling paint available at your local hardware store.

Remember that when it comes to colour, do your research or chat to a residential painting services provider! If you’re after painting advice, we’d love to hear from you at Premier Painting, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
