Brighten Up Dark Areas Of Your Home With The Right Paint

Some areas of your home receive more light than others, leaving some areas, like the hallway and staircase, to appear very dark. Choosing the right paint color paired with the right lights can help brighten those dark spots!

Light Gray

Light grays with soft purple undertones can work wonders for your hallway. The key is to make sure you are pairing it with the right lighting such as high beamed recessed lights. When dealing with light gray shades, adequate lighting is key.

Creamy Beige

There are so many different variations of beiges that you can always find the perfect one! The best way to pick is to use samples. This way you can see how the shade will look in your hallway or staircase with the lighting you already have. Of course, you can always update your lighting, but if you are looking just to update the paint, this is the best option.

Sage Green

You will want to go for a pale sage green, with blue and green undertones. This color is great if you are going to be decorating the walls with wall art or photos. Not only is the shade inviting, but it can also really make a difference in a hallway with lights.

Pale Blue

Not only does pale blue work in hallways and staircases, it also works in bathrooms that receive little natural light. Again, you will need to make sure it is a lighter shade of blue, but it works really well in areas that tend to be dark. And again, pair it with the right lighting and it pops even more!

Helpful Tip: When choosing a paint color for a dark area of your home, pay attention to the LRV of the paint. This number represents how much light the paint color reflects or absorbs.

What is the Difference Between Satin Paint and Eggshell Paint?

Not only are there different colors of paint to choose from, but there are also different types of finishes. Two of the most popular choices are satin paint and eggshell paint. So, what is the difference between the two, and which one is best for your upcoming paint project?

Satin Paint

Satin paint is best for kitchens and bathrooms because it is durable and easy to clean. This type of paint has a silky finish, but don’t think super shiny. It is more of a subtle reflection with a velvety glow. Satin paint also gives walls more depth, which is also why it is great for smaller rooms.

Because the paint is so durable, you can easily clean it. Just don’t scrub too hard! Keeping the walls clean is a breeze so it is a great type of paint for kitchens that see a lot of cooking action. Satin paint is also a low-cost option. But it can easily show application flaws such as paint roller or brush marks. Since this paint can be difficult to apply or retouch, leave it to the pros.

Eggshell Paint

Eggshell paint is great for bedrooms and hallways. The finish is smooth, but not as reflective as satin paint. But it still has a small luster to the finish. This type of paint is not as durable as other types, but it is safe for rooms that don’t see much traffic or brief traffic such as hallways.

However, it does only take a couple of coats to cover mistakes, making it easy to touch up. But the paint scuffs easily, so it is best to avoid using it in children’s rooms or kitchens. Eggshell paint should also only be used for interior walls. It doesn’t do well as exterior paint because it isn’t very durable.

Tips To Choosing The Right Exterior Paint Color

It can be hard to choose a paint color for your home, especially for your home’s exterior. This is because your decision is rather permanent. Yes, you can always repaint your home’s exterior, but it is a lot of work, so you want to make sure you are choosing a color you can live with. Remember, the home’s exterior gives off the first impression of your home.

You can still play it safe while having fun with different shades of colors. But make sure you are paying attention to certain elements to ensure that you are choosing the right color for your home.

The Home’s Permanent Elements

There are certain elements of your home that are extremely hard to change. Because of this, choose a paint color that is going to match these permanent elements. For example, the roof, patio, any stone or brick on the exterior of the home. Look at these things for inspiration on the right color for your home’s exterior. Examine the types of shades in these elements as well as the tiny specks of color. It is worth trying to find the same shade of brown or grey to really bring out these elements.

Nature’s Elements

The natural elements surrounding your home are also worth examining. Does your home’s landscape have many trees? Or flowers that change throughout the seasons? What shades of plants are surrounding your home? You don’t want your house to exactly blend in, but you also don’t want it to stand out like a sore thumb, so a balance needs to be found.

Another thing to think about is the amount of sunlight your home gets. If your home gets a good amount of sun, go with a more neutral color that won’t fade as much.

Use High-Quality Paint

It doesn’t matter what color you decide to paint your home, it needs to be high-quality, long-lasting paint. Yes, this type of paint is going to be more expensive, but it will be well worth it. The better quality of the paint, the better the paint will cover the surface. It will also be more resistant to fading and protect against elements of mother nature such as wind and rain.

 Sample!

Take the time to browse and sample different shades. Narrow it down to just a few different colors and test them out. If you are looking for professional advice, we can help you decide on the best paint color for your home’s exterior.

Top Colors To Paint Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is your sanctuary and you want it to be a peaceful and relaxing place. We have the top colors to paint your bedroom to make it the perfect spot you can enjoy!

Blues

From light blues to bright blues, any blue is the perfect color to express yourself. If you really want to add color to your walls, think about painting them a shade of turquoise, which pairs well with mosaics and metal décor.

If you do go with bright blues, add a hint of white to the room, making the walls look even more dramatic. Lighter shades of blues can be paired with more colorful décor.

Purples

It is fun to paint your room in dramatic colors such as purples. There are all types of shades or purples you can choose from, such as elegant hues like lavender or deep purples like eggplant.

Any shade of purple walls can be easy to decorate. Lighter purples look stunning with gray accents and deep regal purples pair well with gold accents.

Yellows

Bright colors like yellows can be scary to us on your walls, but they are actually inviting colors for your bedroom. Plus, colors like yellow are a great way to add personality to your room.

From lighter shades of yellow to brighter shades, all yellows seem to go well with patterned black and white bedding like a damask pattern. In fact, painting your walls yellow can leave a luxurious look if done right.

Grays

Using grays to paint your bedroom walls is a little less dramatic, but it is more exciting than white. Like Sherwin Williams’ August color of the month, Eider White. This gray is the perfect shade to decorate with.

Gray colors are gorgeous and fresh, plus they pair well with any type of style. Your décor can be what adds extra flair to your room. So, use gray walls with dramatic décor to balance out the room.

Trend Alert: Concrete Staining

Summertime is meant to be spent outdoors, which means now might be the time to update the front or back yard of your home. There are many options for remodeling your yard, but one of the easiest ways to make the biggest impact is concrete staining.

Concrete staining is popular for residential and commercial buildings. Paint sits on top of the concrete, but stain absorbs into the surface, giving a unique look. Plus, it is fade resistant.

The Benefits Of Concrete Staining

There are several benefits to stepping outside of the box and staining your home’s outdoor concrete.

It’s Easy To Maintain

The biggest benefit is that it is very easy to maintain. The concrete is sealed after applying the stain, giving an extra layer of protection. Water doesn’t impact the stained concrete, so feel free to sweep and mop as much as you want, without worrying about harming the surface.

It’s Durable

Concrete staining lasts a long time. The color becomes permanent, so it will not chip or peel. The sunlight doesn’t fade the color either, so it always looks beautiful.

It’s Affordable

Concrete staining may look expensive, but it is actually very affordable. Since there is little to no maintenance, it is a cost-effective way to add style to your yard. Since it is durable, you won’t need to replace or repair the concrete.

Commercial Buildings: How to Maintain Freshly Painted Walls

Has your office just spiced up its commercial building’s interior walls with a fresh coat of paint? With so many people returning back to work, many businesses are updating the interior of their offices with newly painted walls.

Of course, you want to keep it looking fresh as long as possible. Luckily, we have some easy ways to help maintain the paint on the interior walls.

Get The Job Done Right

It all starts with getting the paint job done right from the start. For such a big task such as painting the interior walls of a commercial building, turn to the professionals. East Valley Painters has the experience and skill to get the paint job done right. We use only the highest-quality paint and the best painting techniques to protect walls from cracking and peeling.

Protect The Walls

Add extra protection to the walls once the paint job is complete. This means doing your best to prevent added damage to the paint and walls from things in the building, like door stoppers, which are known to scratch the paint right off walls.

Start by carefully arranging furniture so you can limit the amount of furniture up against the walls. If you are placing chairs or tables against the painted walls, add rubber or cloth buffers to prevent leaving any unwanted marks or scratching the paint off. Remember, the quality of the paint used is going to be the first layer of protection.

Keep The Walls Clean

It also helps to keep the walls of the building clean. Dust can actually lead to discoloration of the walls, so it is a good idea to not only dust the walls regularly but also get a professional cleaning done at least once a year.

Make sure to also dust any items hanging on the wall, too!

By using East Valley Painters to add a new coat of paint to keeping the walls clean, you can help extend the life of newly painted walls in your commercial building!
