Updating your home with fresh paint may be the most significant change you can make. This inexpensive investment will likely yield the greatest return.
Painting can instantly transform a room especially if you are changing the color scheme. Paint ages just like rest of the home and should be updated regularly.
Choosing a paint color from the thousands of choices available may be a very daunting task. Earth tones and neutral colors are always a safe selection. Bold colors such as red and purple work well for accents but can be overwhelming for an entire room.
Investing in a good roller, pan, and paint brush will make the project go more smoothly. You should plan for a minimum of one gallon of paint for a standard 10×10 room. If you are covering a darker color, then a second coat of paint will be required to give a smooth solid finish.
