Choose Color with Confidence
Sunday, June 10, 2012
You’ve spent hours looking through magazines and exploring design concepts online. Now you’re finally ready to bring your home decorating ideas to life. But regardless of how much energy you’ve put into planning and preparing, it’s difficult to perfectly envision the outcome. Painting a small area of the wall with your color of choice helps ensure you’ll be satisfied with the results. It also gives Lakeside Painting confidence that not only will you be delighted with the attentive service and professionalism of our painting contractors, you’ll be pleased with all aspects of the painting experience.
In addition to a myriad of color samples available at paint retail stores, businesses are happy to offer customers quart-size cans of paint for just this purpose. Oftentimes, decorators who are uncertain of an exact color or shade will purchase two samples, painting the sample colors side-by-side. Be sure to apply two coats to ensure the sample will match the final wall color.
The samples should also be applied on several areas of the wall where lighting may differ. Interior painting can be tricky. Light from a window will obviously make a color brighter and more vibrant. Far walls, especially corners, will often cause the color to appear several shades darker, creating a look that doesn’t fit with your overall image for the room. Even interior design experts find it not uncommon that once the paint is applied, the color is not what was expected.
Don’t be disappointed if the color doesn’t turn out to be just what you had in mind. Now you can be rest assured that your end decision will help create that picture-perfect room you’ve anticipated.
After you’re confident your color choice is sound, there’s just one final step. Call Lakeside Painting to bring about the long-awaited transformation. Contact us online or by phone at (800) 642-9445.
