Transforming A Room With Paint

Transforming A Room With Paint

According to home staging specialists, painting the interior of a home is one the best ways to transform your house into a decorator showpiece!  Painting is easy, relatively inexpensive, and a perfect project for staging do-it-yourselfers.   Before you pull out the paintbrushes, I thought you'd be interested in a few great tips from the professionals.  

-Avoid bright colors, fluorescent and neon shades, or colors that are very dark.  The hottest trends in paint colors are soft creams, taupes, and pale buttery yellow tones.
-Neutral colors have a universal appeal for both men and women.
-Don't be tempted to keep the wallpaper.  Generally, buyers are put off by it.  They view the removal process as another chore if they buy your home.
-A room will appear larger when you paint it the same color as the room adjacent to it.  It can give the illusion of one big open space.
-Another favorite designer tip, to give the illusion of more space, is to paint the walls the same color as the drapes.  It creates a seamless, contemporary look.

I hope you found these tips as helpful as I do… and HAPPY PAINTING!
