Whether you are offering interior design services for residential or commercial entities, one of the most cost and time efficient ways to update an interior is through paint color selections. The overall aesthetic of a family’s home is heavily influenced by the paint colors selected by an interior design professional. Neutral tones with an accent wall, contrasting trim, and clean lines in residential painting all go a long way in increasing the value and appeal of a home’s interior paint job. Set the tone for your clients with carefully curated home decorating ideas.
The Importance of Paint Color Selections
Cool and warm paint colors set the overall temperature for the home, and rooms are balanced by paint color selection. Don’t just think of the walls when comparing paint swatches. Consider the trim, ceiling, floor, windows and doors of the home while determining how to best utilize interior paint.
Interior Paint and Exterior Paint Selection Tips
- Take a trip back to the basics. The adage goes, “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” This should be remembered when considering paint colors for the home’s interior. Clean lines, neutral colors, the timeless balance of black and white, and selective and few pops of color are what will remain classic for a home’s interior.
- Look for ways to increase the home’s real estate value. One of the most reliable ways to increase the value of a client’s home is to update the exterior paint. Pressure washing and refinishing the exterior of the home will increase its overall value. Also consider the interior windows, deck and/or screened-in porch – these areas are often forgotten, but would benefit from touch-ups and a fresh coat of paint.
- Focus on the Trim. It’s easy to miss one of the most consistent methods of revamping a home’s interior: the trim work. Trim work is often avoided because it can be tedious and detailed, but it’s essential to making a room look new. If you don’t want to change the walls in a room, consider matching the trim or finding a contrasting color to accent the room’s depth.
