It’s that time of the year when we make all those resolutions for the coming year: get more exercise, eat healthier, get more sleep, and on and on. The possibilities are endless. Since we’re paint contractors in Chicago, we know we’re a little biased, but we’d like to suggest that while making all those resolutions, you might think about throwing some paint into the mix!
The afterglow of the holidays is a great time to start thinking about how you might dress up and beautify your home with some paint. It might be one room or several, but a fresh coat of paint symbolizes new beginnings and is a great way to update the décor of your home.
As your favorite paint contractors in Chicago, we just happen to have a few suggestions to pass along.
Whether it’s an historical or newer home, using bold colors is a sure way to revamp the interior of your home with exciting impact. While monochromatic color schemes and muted colors make a great starting palette, why not shake things up a bit in 2017? For example, Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue, based on a color much used by the Dutch, would work well on accent walls in either a bathroom or bedroom.
Having worked as paint contractors in Chicago since 1979, we know that adding a few bold, new colors can bring a lot more glamour to the interior of your home than a few pops of color provided by pillows, throws or vases.
Add a Cozy Touch
If you have a large open space or room in your home that doesn’t feel particularly inviting, think of doing it over in a dark color. Dark colors tend to pull in space and make a large room feel intimate, cozy and warm.
Don’t Overdo It
While dark hues add warmth to a larger room, they can shrink smaller rooms into a coffin-like space. Used as an accent color on a wall is fine, but avoid using that color on every wall in a small room.
