Painting our walls

After 3 days of non-posting we are here again with our useful tips regarding home and home decorations. Hope you’ll like what we will press today, so have a nice time with our fresh posts. Let’s begin! 🙂

Here you have some advices how to paint the walls of the house and get a satisfactory result, begining with the preparation of the walls to the color rendering.

The colors change with the light, both natural and artificial. To decide how to paint the walls of your apartment, first you need to consider the exposure of different environments, the time of day in which you are mostly in the certain room and for how long you will be there

If the room is north-facing, and therefore has little light, will be better warm colors (yellows, reds, etc.), if the exposure is to the south, you can also use less solar colors, even cold ones.

Choose the color to paint the walls

For the rooms which are frequently used are usually suitable lighter colors. Who wants to dare, you should give it a try, perhaps with the help of new technologies: photograph the room with a digital camera and transfer the images to your computer, using special graphics programs you can change the colors on the screen to assess overall effect and try different combinations.

Entire walls or structural elements that can not be modified can be enhanced and putted into relief with a custom use of the color. If you choose very lit or dark colors, better to use them onto details such as cornices, brackets, arches, pillars or columns, fireplace surrounds. Need to be considered, however, that the next painting may require more preparation and more hands to remove all traces of the previous background.

But still, be brave, let your imagination run wild and try to color your walls without being affraid. 🙂
