Different Ways of Painting Can Increase the Interior Appeal of a Home

Painting the interior of a home can add to its appeal, but interior house painting goes beyond just adding fresh colors. Here is a look at a variety of interior home painting techniques that can boost the overall appeal of a home.


Enhance Your Entryway

Entering a home offers an immediate impression of the interior décor. Just because the walls are one color, it doesn’t mean you can’t add some complimentary colors to the door, doorway or surrounding trim. Also, keep in mind that paint can start to wear in an entryway and some fresh colors can prove to be a welcomed first sight among visitors.

Liven Up Your Basement

Painting is an integral part of any finished basement and it is generally important to upgrade the light in that lower level room. One option is to paint the ceiling white, which will serve the purpose of allowing the remaining colors in the room pop a little more. Bright paint on the walls is another way of bringing in more light and it also works well with a pristine white ceiling.

Stairways of Color

Staircases that are not topped with rugs or carpet do not have to remain a wood color. There are a lot of possibilities when it comes to painting a staircase and that starts with painting the actual stairs. And remember that the paint you select needs to be able to withstand a lot of traffic, so it is wise to choose one made for that specific purpose. There is also the option of adding accents by painting the banister the same or complimentary color.

Deciding on a Color

Many homeowners decide on paint colors by using paint swatches. However, this is not the best way to get a sense of how a color will look inside your home. A better alternative would be to paint a small portion of the wall and gauge how that looks. There is also the alternative of painting a poster board and then using that as a type of large swatch in order to decide whether or not that color works for you.
