Believe it or not, interior decoration and painting go hand-in-hand. Colours have the power to transform the look and feel of any space. However, when you decide to paint the interior of your house, there are many things that you need to take into account:
1. What colour scheme you want to choose?
2. Should you hire a professional?
Choosing the Colour Scheme
Starting an interior painting project without having a colour scheme in place can be catastrophic. It is important to understand that the choice of colour has a direct influence on your mood and behaviour while you are at home.
Your colour choices may be limited due to furnishings that are already in places, such as carpets or fixed items. However, this must not hold you back. Using a colour wheel can be helpful as you can look at what colours go together and make a decision on whether you want to choose:
The Tonal Route
Many people choose this path because it is simple. It involves the use of one colour throughout the space. More than one colour may be used but it must have a similar tonal depth.
The Harmonious Route
If you choose this option, you will have to go for colours which are next to one another on the colour wheel. The result is a scheme that is easy and restful. Moreover, it greater for bedroom and lounge areas.
The Complementary Route
This option consists of contrasting colours that lie opposite each other on the colour wheel. It can give a lot of life and vibrancy into a scheme and tend to be seen as bold. If you are seeking to make an impact, this may be the way to go.
Hiring a Professional or DIY?
However, if you want to redecorate, you must be asking yourself whether you want to it yourself or hire a professional to the job for you?
You might want to consider the following reasons before you opt for the DIY:
1. Less Stress
Attempting a DIY project when you have a full time job is daunting and exhausting. It will take you a long time and the final result might not even be perfect. A professional will save you time and prevent you from making any wrong decision which may mess up the project completely. Not only will the end result meet your expectations and tastes but it will be flawless.
2. Professionals are more experienced
Professionals have more experience and have more skills than you. You can be sure that they will get the project done more quickly and will give it a much better finish. Moreover, they will be able to overcome any snags that might come across.
3. The right materials and equipment
Decorating and painting projects are more easily and quickly done using the right equipment. A professional will have them and they will know how to use them. If you are not well-equipped, doing the work yourself will naturally involve added costs.
4. Expert advice and knowledge
Not only do professionals have experience in painting and decorating, but they can also provide expert advice on the colours and textures that will best suit your home’s interior. They will be able to put the right colours together and in the right places which you might not be able to do on your own.
