Interior and Exterior Paint Color Tips
Here are top exterior and interior painting ideas to keep in mind while you choose a palette for your project.
Exterior Color Ideas
Drive through various neighborhoods and take note of appealing exterior paint color schemes and adaptability to your own home.
Define Your Entry
Define the entry. Use exterior paint color as a "Welcome" sign to your home.
Determine Your Mood
Determine the mood you want to create with the room. Warmer tones are friendly and inviting. Cooler tones create calm and relaxing spaces.
Keeping the trim all one color provides continuity as you move from room to room. Stark white in a semi- or full-gloss creates a very formal look.
Choose Color Flow
Think about 'flow' and how the colors of neighboring rooms will work together. Very dark to very light transitions, or transitions from rooms with highly contrasting colors can either be jarring or invigorating.
Choosing the Best Color for Baton Rouge House Painting
Picking a color for your home in Baton Rouge can be very challenging. With our climate, structure style and varied substrates, finishes and hues are very important to consider before beginning a project. Because of this, CertaPro Painters of Baton Rouge is happy to offer color consultation services to assist you in your decision. Here are a few consideration to get you started.
A hot and humid climate like we feel here in Baton Rouge can take a toll on the paint of your home. Since this is the first layer of defense against weather and pests, you want to create a solid barrier that will last. To accomplish this, consider the finish you are putting on your home. The paint needs to stand up to UV rays and potential tropical weather. Using a high quality, acrylic based paint. This will offer the best protection while allowing a good amount of cleaning. The paint will also withstand more of the sun’s hot rays before beginning to fade prematurely, which is the first sign of paint failure.
Our neighborhoods are a nice mixture of historic homes paired with modern buildings. Choosing an inappropriate paint for the style of your home can make it stick out in the crowd in a bad way. Picking the right color will make it look like it was all meant to be. For example, a chic and modern gray on a historic home is going to look out of place. Put the same color on a more modern home and it’s perfect. In addition, putting colors together with brick and stone that we often see can add an extra level of challenge.
The aforementioned bricks tend to trip up homeowners when painting. While they are sturdy and can withstand a lot of punishment, that doesn’t mean they never need updating. Using sealants and stains on wooden elements, bricks and other architectural items is just as important as painting your stucco. Choosing the right coating and color is important for these elements.
If you’re approaching a house painting project and feeling overwhelmed, call our crews today. Our color consultants are happy to assist you with your project. You’ll be able to move forward without concern that you have chosen a hue you will regret later.
