Painting Tips From a Home Builder in Vancouver WA


The paint in your home can have a drastic impact on the way your rooms feel and look. The color and finish you choose should represent your lifestyle and personal style.

Today we would like to offer the following tips for painting the rooms in your home:

Choose the perfect color: Grab various swatches from your local paint store or home improvement store. You never know how you will feel about a color in the lighting in your house, so making sure to grab a lot of them is important. It will cut down on the times you have to go back and fourth, and will also help you make a decision faster.

The right finish is important too: The finish frames the color in your space and can make all the difference in the way your space looks. You can choose a finish for the room depending on how the space will be used. Making sure to choose a matte or flat finish can assist in the concealment of flaws. If you are looking for a more satin finish, consider it in high traffic areas because it is beautiful and easy to clean.

To begin your paint project, consider this list of supplies to get you started:

  • Painter’s tape
  • Sheets or tarps to cover furniture
  • Brushes and rollers
  • Paint trays
