Paint Planning: Start with FinishesDecember 3, 2014
For those fortunate enough to escape the stress commonly associated with organizing holiday events, there are a few awesome interior details to take note of when considering hosting gatherings the future. There are a few shortcuts that can make a house feel more inviting and comforting to guests, without the need to do major overhauls.
High Gloss Paint
High gloss paints are popular choices that can be used sparingly to amplify the look of many types of rooms. Applying this type of paint to trim or cabinets can add a whole new dynamic to a room. The gloss is exceptionally shiny, which can remind people of cleanliness and make things seem a little tidier in general. But before selecting this type of paint, homeowners must gauge the amount of imperfections that are currently present on the desired surfaces. High gloss paints magnify these types of details, so the surfaces that possess a lot of small dents or holes will require more time for surface prep and sanding. Perhaps more importantly, these types of paints can go from “formal” to “overwhelming” fairly quickly. Use paint sparingly to add a subtle, pristine feeling to common areas.
Small spaces are some of the most ideal projects during the holiday seasons. Because of time constraints, people can easily schedule professional painting companies to ease the pressure. A new bathroom paint job is a nice clean touch that can be done in a short amount of time. Many people elect to choose a holiday color to give the room some life just in time and also be used year round. A coat of green or red will bring the knick-knacks to life and transcend seasons nicely following the festivities.
