Accent Walls, Trim, and Color Palettes, Oh My!
When painting the inside of your home, you have to consider all aspects of the room from the walls, to the trim, and all the accents in between. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling wants to get you headed in the right direction with each aspect with some helpful tips!
You may already know this, but we can’t say it enough! Paint is the easiest thing to change in a room, so if you are redecorating, you may already be attached to a certain hue, but David Juarez, owner of D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling, asserts, “Furniture and décor is pretty straight forward and standard, but color has thousands upon thousands of options, so don’t work yourself into a design corner by picking a color and then being unable to find coordinating furniture and accents. You’ll end up picking furniture you don’t even like because it’s what matches. Make sure that doesn’t happen by picking paint last!”
Those thousands upon thousands of colors provide limitless possibilities, but the amount of options can be daunting. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling has tips on finding The Perfect Palette by finding inspiration from within the room and the things you love. We are obviously willing to help, but if you need a starting place, pull from the colors in the furniture and décor. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling can match anything!
An accent wall is an easy way to add character to a color design, but you may be questions how to incorporate an accent wall into the room you are painting. There may be a logical wall to use as an accent wall, but, if not, you want to find a wall with a balance of space. If you have too much open space, it will be too much accent color, but if you have your accent color covered up by windows and drapes, you’ll have a different problem.
Trim it Out.
When picking a trim color, you’ll want to decide whether you want to contrast or coordinate. For instance, if you have a dark color on the walls and you plan to coordinate, you’ll want to have a darker color on the trim as well. If, however, you want contrast, you would pair dark wall colors with a bright white or neutral shade for trim. Juarez recommends, “Look at pictures online of other rooms to see which effect you favor.”
D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling loves helping people get the best palette for their walls, accent walls, and trim to suit them and their home, but these tips can help you look for inspiration and form ideas about what you like best!
