Bought your dream house? Or maybe you are planning to renovate your home and prepared to sell your home?  If you have a good color sense, painting your walls can add great vibe and value to your house.  If you are considering painting your house this summer, check out the tips below before picking your colors!

1. Don’t Rush to Paint!

The more significant furnishing decisions, including upholstery, rugs, and drapes, need to be made first so you can match with the colors on the walls.  These two complement each other, and as a result, if you pick your wall color first, you may have to make some major changes when it comes to furnishings. 

2. Avoid Painting Bricks.

Exposed brick add a great texture and depth to a home. they can make a wall look more elegant and be a potential home buyer magnet. Many potential buyers want to see an exposed brick wall when they breeze through an open house so don’t ruin the asset you have with brick by painting over them!

3. Go easy with the BOLDS

Painting your bedroom walls with a bold color like red or orange can make your space look dated. Experts suggest painting your Bedroom and Livingroom with quiet hues like muted green or blue. Just can't quit red? Save this energetic shade for the kitchen.

4. Set the Right Tone.

Selecting colors of different hues but of the same value is a bad idea. Value refers to darkness or lightness of the shade. Instead, choose different values of a similar color to add a subtle but great contrast.

5. Understand Your Finishes.

 Eggshell and Matte finishes are the go-to finishes when it comes to interior walls. Satin and semi-gloss finishes rarely belong on walls, put these shiny coats on the trim and ceilings to help reflect light and make the space look bigger
