Making the decision to move forward with your interior painting project for your Burlington home is an exciting one. Changing the color of a room inside of your home has similar results to remodeling the room completely. Plus, this is a much more cost-effective alternative to totally renovating part of your home. However, there are some things that you should keep in mind when it comes to picking colors and getting your house painted.

Avoiding the Pitfalls

As mentioned in the title, one of the most important mistakes to avoid is getting too caught up in color fads. You see a hot new color and think that it would be ideal covering all of the walls of your bedroom or some other room in your house. The problem is that, before long, you end up being tired of this color and are ready to move on to the next trend.

Avoid this by either using a toned down version of the color or by going more basic and using accent pieces in the room for introducing this color. Easy to replace accent pieces, like throw pillows, are much easier to deal with then repainting all of your walls. Which leads to the next idea – using a board to sample the color first.

Find out if you can truly live with any color that you are considering by trying it on a large board first. Prop it up against a wall in the room that you are thinking of using it in; this gives you an idea of how the color will look in different lighting situations, as well. If after a few days you still love this color then it is probably safe to move forward with.

Also, keep in mind that it makes sense to let a professional take care of your painting, as opposed to trying to DIY the task. The majority of the work is in the prep and clean up, which makes the project much more complex than you might initially think. Plus, you have to buy all the supplies and equipment, many of which you won’t use again any time soon which is wasted money.
