Have you ever looked at your room and wished you could change the look of it but got overwhelmed at the thought of how much a project like that would cost? What if I told you that, if done correctly, you don’t have to buy any furnishings to have a new looking room!
Change your wall color, change your room.
Your walls, floors and ceiling are the base of your room. Everything else in your space (like your light fixtures, furniture, artwork, and accessories) work off of the base. If you change the appearance of the base you can make a dramatic change in the overall decor of your room. For example, think of a living room with white walls and dark furniture. The lightness of the walls creates a neutral base for the rest of the room. This allows the dark furnishings to contrast and stand out in the room. Now think of the same room with sage green walls and dark furniture, the darkness of the furniture has the potential to make the room look smaller or more intimate (depending on how you look at it). It’s the same room with the same furniture, but the color of the walls change the look and feel complete.
The color of your walls has the power to:
neutralize your room
change the “mood” of your room
draw attention to focal points and specific features such as architectural elements (built-ins, fireplaces, moldings, etc)
Changing the color of your walls is much more cost-effective than purchasing all new furniture and accessories. It can give new life to existing pieces that were once non-relevant.
Here are some tips to get you started.
Select the right paint finish for the application. For example, if you are painting your kitchen or bathroom use a satin or eggshell paint finish. To highlight your trimwork and molding details I would recommend using a semi-gloss finish.
I recommend hiring a professional painter for quality and accuracy.
