Painting and Decorating Tips for Your Boynton Beach, FL Home

Transforming a house into a home is hard work. Too often, homeowners feel overwhelmed at the prospect of turning their living space into a dream space, and it gets pushed to the wayside. If you want your house to feel like home, the painting and decorating is key. My painters and staff in Boynton Beach, FL have shared a few expert tips since we offer color and design consultations for homeowners across South Florida.

Notice the Lighting
As you probably know, the lighting in your home can change the hue of your paint colors throughout the day. Tape a few paint chips on the walls so you can visualize the room’s color during different parts of the day. You may be surprised to find you love a color during the early morning hours, but can’t stand the way it looks in the evening, or vice versa.

Get a Little Moody
The mood of a room can change according to the color of its walls. If you want a space to feel playful, veer away from the somber dark grays and blues, and head toward more vibrant shades.

Test the Territory
The importance of testing paint colors on the walls is crucial, whether you’re doing a little home painting job in your West Palm Beach kitchen, or a huge commercial painting undertaking in your Broward office building. Ask for a sample can of paint and get out your paintbrush; you may be surprised at the results!

Size Up the Space
The size of a room is important to consider when choosing paint colors or even paint techniques, such as tone-on-tone stripes. Your tiny rooms may feel overwhelmed by horizontal stripes or bold colors, which is why you need to be mindful of the dimensions you're working with.
 
Finish it Off
Lastly, if you’re a little unsure about abruptly changing paint colors, you could shake things up just a bit by painting your walls in a different finish. Eggshell, matte, gloss, and satin are a few examples of the varieties available.

If reading these tips gave you the painting bug, but you don’t have the time to do it yourself, my expert painters and carpenters in South Florida are here to serve everyone with home painting needs. My staff is also available for any home improvement projects, such as wallpaper removing, from West Palm Beach to North Miami, and we’d love to provide you with a color and design consultation. We can help you turn your house into your dream home. Call us at (561) 375-6249 or contact us online.

  • “We want you to know what a fine job your foreman and his crew did on our house. It was what I call a "perfect" job. The whole week was sunny and dry with ideal temperatures. Ramsis was extremely polite and friendly, as were the other two crew members. They took much care not to get paint on our new roof and were very neat and careful with everything that they did. One coat of the Aura paint seemed to cover very well and saved us some time and money as well. ”
