The Power of Paint
Have you ever walked into a house and the entire interior of the property has been painted with a “builder white” coat of paint? If you are an avid fan of white, then this may be a dream home for you. However, if you are not a fan of “all things white”, then you may want to add paint colors that reflect your style, your décor, and your imagination. The power of paint can be remarkable.
Various paint colors on the wall, trim, door frames, molding, cabinets, bookshelves, or ceiling can alter the appearance and the environment of a room, unlike any other addition. Fresh paint can add style and pizazz to an unfinished area, and it can refresh a room that hasn’t been painted in a long time, too. If the walls in your home are new to you, then you can create your decorative themes while using paint colors that you like for your home. On another note, if you have been in your home for quite a while, and your walls look drab and dingy, then a new coat of paint can add crispness and enhancement to your already existing décor.
Paint can update a room or transform a room, unlike any other decorative feature. A homeowner can create a new and vibrant kitchen space by repainting the cabinets on the walls, or by painting the kitchen island a color that pops in this most commonly used room within a home. A fresh coat of paint on bookshelves in a den can transform this living space from dull to bright in just a few strokes of a paintbrush.
As you walk around your home, whether the primary colors are “builder white” or other paint colors that were chosen some time ago, consider new ways to alter the feeling within each space, beginning with the colors on the walls and ceiling. Are there other paint colors that would be truer to your style? Do you have marks on the walls that could disappear with a fresh coat of paint? The power of paint is significant and amazing. With just a little bit of time, creativity, and work, you will be amazed at the power.
