10 Best Interior Paint Colors for 2019
As it is every year, trends are constantly changing—sometimes faster than we can keep up. Portland is definitely no exception, as it is one of the nation’s leaders in residential painting and interior design. The growing popularity of tv shows on HGTV and other channels, as well as websites such as Pinterest have fed people’s desire to keep up with trending culture. Back in the day, before the times of social media, the main people who laid eyes on your house were limited to family, close friends, and maybe a stranger or two—and generally only the rich and elite tended to care as much about popular trends in home interior. In today’s day and age, where nearly everyone is socially connected online, having photo-worthy homes to boast is something we all crave. I mean, who wants a selfie with a backdrop of an outdated bedroom or living room—and (gasp) the bathroom mirror!
Obviously as a painting company, we’d love to handle all of your painting needs. We’re professionals after all and we’re one of the most detailed painting companies in the industry. However we know that sometimes a painting project can be fun and if you’re set on doing some painting yourself, there’s a few tips we can offer.
1. When considering which color that is right for your room, repainting with similar or darker colors will reduce the chances that you will have to waste extra time and money by applying additional coats. Using premium paint will also boost the coverage you are able to achieve often times making it possible to repaint with a single coat! This is a game changer if you’re short on time and/or cash.
2. Make sure you have some drop cloths before you start painting! Unless you’re planning on doing a lot of painting in the future, spending a bunch of money on drops doesn’t make any sense. When I first started painting and my budget for tools and equipment was very tight, I was able to buy cheap canvas curtains for about $10 to use as drop cloths. They worked great for a project or two!
3. Unless you have years of painting experience, getting sharp cutting lines will be very difficult. Even the steadiest hands will start to grow weak after an hour or two of painting. To ensure clean cut lines, use blue painters tape to create cut lines on the ceiling and on trim. Make sure you pull off the tape right after painting that way you can clean off any paint that leaked underneath the tape easily.
Things to Consider
No matter what the list says, you will always need to consider your needs when choosing the perfect color for your interior paint project. Where do you live? What wall textures do you have? What look are you going for? For instance, if you want to have a nice, inviting home, you may not want to choose a stark white for the entryway; however, if you are looking for a “beachy” or super trendy feel, some white might just be a color for you. These are some things to take into consideration. You can give us a call and we can schedule a designer to come give you a quick consultation and get you heading on the right track.
