Your Home is More than Four Walls

The walls of your home are possibly the biggest and most common surfaces you are likely to encounter when you enter your home. Your home is the place you go to get away from the stress of life, and it gives you a sense of security and comfort.

Southern Perfection Painting interior paintersYou can make a dramatic change in the appearance of an interior room of your home simply by adding some paint to one or all of the walls. Although the thought of painting is more frightening than a root canal for many people, I am a huge advocate for getting rid of those stark white walls.

Getting a few paint swatches from your local paint store can help you to narrow down your color selection.

A Little Help

Do yourself a favor, visit your local hardware/paint store or Sherwin Williams, and grab a handful of paint swatches that match your style and personality. Do not select very bright colors unless you are certain that you want your walls to be the focal point in the room.

Narrow your selection to a few colors that seem to complement, rather than compete with, your furniture and furnishings. Your best bet is to find the most neutral shades for the colors that you have in mind. For example, if there are seven shades of red paint, the most neutral shade will be the one in the middle of the bunch.

Before you finalize your decision, return to the paint store and purchase small cans of paint for the top two or three colors that caught your eye. Also, pick up some inexpensive 3″ brushes. You will want to paint 12″ x 12″ patches of the colors on your walls. Leave the patches there for at least a day so that you can evaluate how well they will work in the room, and how they look in natural and artificial lighting.

Another Option

You may not want to paint the entire room but adding an accent wall to your main attraction could add a little spice to your living space. Take for example these options:
