Choosing Paint Color: a Little Goes a Long Way

When most of us think of interior painting, we tend to think about having to paint an entire room. But just a small amount of paint color can inject creative accents into your home decor and spice up your home’s interior.

You can use paint color to give a room style and personality in much the same way an interior decorator would add new furniture or window treatments to lift a room. By simply adding an accent color to a single wall or are of trim, you can brighten the entire space, without the need to repaint an entire room.

Choosing Paint ColorFor starters, try painting a single wall in a color that compliments or contrasts the other walls in the room. You may also want to consider painting the window frames and the woodwork a stunning interior paint color that no one would expect to see.

You don’t have to stop with the walls or woodwork. Consider painting a fireplace a unique color, or maybe add a new color to an archway. Paint the back of your bookshelves a different color than the front, or painting the doors of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets a different color to liven up any color scheme. Paint furniture, picture frames, or flower pots an eye catching color.

Focusing on small scale interior painting projects can take less time and money than if you decide to paint an entire room, which could end up being quite costly. If you happen to be on a budget or have time constraints, try tackling a small painting project first.
