Small changes can bring extraordinary results. That can happen with a painting service. If your drywall could use a refreshment, painting is the best option. By choosing the right colors for each room, you can transform the entire house without spending a fortune or making substantial and hassled changes. The question is which colors to use? And how to finish drywall to have the best possible results?
How to start drywall painting projects
The first step before you even hire a painting contractor is to check the condition of your drywall. Check both the walls and ceilings. After all, it’s best to paint the whole room. If you don’t paint the ceiling, it will look dirtier once the walls are refreshed. Your intention now is to see if there are any imperfections and cracks, which can be fixed. Think if you had dealt with any floods and thus water damage. Remove all pictures from the wall and check the surface for nail holes. Drywall repair should always precede painting.
With the imperfections and holes all patched up, it’s time to call a painting company. It’s best to trust a pro, especially if the drywall is new. That’s because new drywall must be primed first in order to be painted right. And experts not only know what to do but can also do the drywall finishing work in less time and much better.
Interior painting: which color for which room?
There is always a question of which color to paint rooms. It depends on whether this is a home or commercial painting project. In the case of the latter, you need to consider the nature of your work. Modern jobs related to interior design, architecture, women & baby items, hairdressing salons etc. might look very attractive and inviting with warm colors. But neutrals, like whites and grays, will be more appropriate for a law firm.
When it comes to residential painting, consider how much natural lighting comes in the room. Take into account the interior style and color options of both furniture and decorative items. It’s also wise to consider the trims and whether or not there are wainscoting panels.
If you like intense colors or extreme neutrals – like black – don’t overdo it. Prefer to paint only one wall to keep the room bright. Remember to consider the size & height of the room too. Taller and larger rooms can take darker hues. Smaller and shorter ones would most likely shrink more if you use dark colors.
Before any interior painting service, try to make color combinations. If some walls are wainscoted, think if you want them painted the same hue as the wall or in contrasting colors. And then it is the choice of wall and ceiling colors. If you don’t want the ceiling to come down, use a lighter hue than the wall and keep the crown molding white.
There are all sorts of painting solutions and millions of combinations. In order to have the best results, take into consideration the features of each room and always consult with an experienced painting & drywall contractor
