It is obvious your house needs a makeover – the paint is peeling, the shadows of old frames stand out on the wall and your shutters have definitely weathered too many winters. Your homeowner instincts tell you that something needs to be done but you still face two major issues. Who will do the work and what will they paint?
Step 1: Decide on a trustworthy, professional paint company that will get the job done right the first time.
We know that your home is your most valuable asset – for many people, their home is their biggest investment. That’s why we always put our customers first.
So take your time when deciding on a paint company for the job! Talk to several different companies and do more than just compare rates – compare quality, responsiveness and past performance. Go with the community business like 360° Painting because every 360° Painting is locally owned and operated. Call today and set up your free consultation where you can get a sense of the customer-focused approach of 360° Painting – 1-866-99-PAINT.
Step 2: You can work with 360° Painting to find the perfect color scheme for your home.
While it may seem simple to choose a coordinating color palette, color design is often much more complicated! To choose the best fool-proof colors for your home, follow these basic rules:
- Take your time. Talk with your 360° Painting team so that they can understand what you are looking for. They are the experts and have a wealth of knowledge and experience!
- Paint big samples and LEAVE THEM for a day. Paint color really depends on the light in your room and light changes throughout the day! Don’t be afraid to use big samples because you’re going to have to repaint anyway.
- If you have fabric you are trying to match, use a tool like the Sherwin-Williams Color Snap app. This app can match the colors in your fabric sample. You can get to this directly fro the 360° Painting website.
Now we’re going to share a great insider-tip on choosing a color – paint companies will often do the hard work for you!
Many paint companies will create palettes or collections that you can either adapt or completely use in your home. These palettes and collections are put together by experts and fit different moods and styles. Using a palette ensures that the colors definitely go well together!
Try channeling your favorite state with the Sherwin-Williams “State Your Colors” Collection. This collection takes your favorite states and distills three complimentary colors into a mini, state-based palette. We love both the Alaska palette with Gallant Gold, Mountain Air and Anchors Aweigh, and the Montana palette with Great Falls, Grizzle Gray and Snowdrop.
Or if you’re looking for a trendier color palette, check out the 2019 Colormix Forecast with wonderful color collections like “Aficionado” described as “With copper and gold anchored by merlot and gray, these tailored tones make everything feel tasteful and elegant.”
