Painting Tips and Tricks Painting is the number one thing you can do to easily update and refresh your home. Check out these tips on choosing a color, deciding on a finish, and getting the professional looking new room you desire.

Choose a Color

Choosing a color is the hardest part. What's most important is to find one that will create a desired mood and make you happy. If you really don't have any idea about what color to paint try pulling a color out a piece of art or area rug that's in the room. It's a guaranteed way to find a complimentary color. Take home several paint chips and see how they look in the room. Hold them up to the furniture, floors, artwork, cabinets, and anything else that's already in the room. Try to narrow it down to three or four choices. Get a small sample pot of each color and paint a large square on the wall. Watch how the color changes as the sun moves across the sky and the amount of light in the room changes.

Using More Than One Color

If you're using more than one color in the room remember these paint tips. If you have a chair rail or wainscoting and you want to paint the top and bottom of the walls different colors it's best to use the darker color on the bottom portion and the lighter on top. The light color will dominate and the dark color will have a grounding effect. To accentuate trim paint it a shade lighter or a shade darker than the walls. The same goes for the ceiling. Painting it a shade darker will make the room feel cozier, painting it a lighter shade will create an airier feeling.
