Interior Lighting Can Change Paint Color’s Appearance

Another great place for color in the house is the powder room. A lot of times we tell people if you want experiment with paint color or wall color, choose a huge color for the Powder Room. Really have fun with it! Like, why not? Paint is the least expensive way to completely transform a room.

Every time you see those home improvement shows, where you see the before and after, it’s always the wall color which is like, “Wow!” They just might have changed it just a little bit, and it makes a big difference or they change it a lot and it makes a huge difference.

Powder Rooms are amazing. One of the biggest colors we see in Powder Rooms right now is a medium to dark silver grey, with very pretty chrome silver fixtures it looks fantastic. You can choose reds or black, a lot of people get nervous with that color, but if you use a flat or an eggshell again in the bathroom you can do that these days, because of the technology in the paint. So powder rooms are a great place for big color.

Another great place for color that people don’t even think about is your garage. You know we sometimes call it the, “man cave” if guys have things set up in there a refrigerator and all kinds of things for them to go to and hang out. But why does it have to be off white? Why not a color in your garage? Pull into some color every day! It can have a great effect on you.
