When people decide to spruce up their houses, the first place many homeowners think to start is with a fresh coat of paint on their walls. And with the amount of wear and tear your wall paint takes, whether it be from kids or pets or the moving of furniture, this is usually a good instinct. It is amazing what a few fresh coats of paint in a modern color can do to the look and feel of your house, especially when applied by an experienced Sacramento remodeling contractor who will not only know exactly how to apply the paint, but will also be able to consult with you to figure out the best color and shade for each of the rooms in your home. This will make a big difference as opposed to just selecting the same color that’s already there and slapping on a new coat.
When it comes to painting the walls in your home, there are many factors that should be taken into account. For starters, what colors do you want to use? Some people like to match the wall color to their furniture. Others want to match it to their carpet. And how about the doors to the each room? Should they match the paint color in the rest of the room or be a different color to offset them. How about the trim? These are all very important questions that your Sacramento remodeling contractor can use their experience to help you answer. Same holds true for the quality of the paint you use. Your first instinct may be to use a cheaper paint to save you money. However, the labor cost of cheaper and higher end paint will usually be about the same, with a higher quality paint lasting for up to twice as long. Now which one seems cheaper?

SACRAMENTO REMODELING CONTRACTOR VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
TITLE: Painting Pointers from a Pro
NARRATION: Your pain takes a beating through the years, whether it outside in the elements or inside just wear and tear from the kids, and the pets, and getting bumped into. So, a lot of people, when they’re looking to freshen up their house, they’ll decide to paint.
A lot of people will match color of furniture and upholstery to walls like I’ve done in this room. I’ve pulled out the color of the carpet and put it up on the walls. My thought on paint is you always wanna go with the top line paint. The labor to put it on a cheaper, inexpensive, not as good paint are the same as putting out something that’s gonna last twice as long.
You don’t wanna go too dark, just because it’ll make the room seemed close in. Also, if there are doors in the area or in the room, if you paint them the same color as the walls, but in a semi-gloss, you’re not cutting up the wall space that way and everything will be one continuous collar and it’ll make the room in larger.
