National Home Remodeling Month
May is National Home Remodeling Month so I thought it would be fitting to talk about easy home improvements and remodeling ideas that DIY folks can do themselves. Remodeling your home can add value, efficiency and peace of mind for years to come.
One of the most popular remodeling ideas is painting a room in your home or even painting an exterior door to add curb appeal. Painting is one of the basic DIY activities that most home owners feel comfortable doing. When I read home improvement blogs over at Houseblogs.net a large percentage of the home owners talk about painting projects. Painting doesn’t seem to overwhelming to folks, the materials are fairly reasonably priced, the tools are simple and inexpensive and honestly the skills required are pretty basic. Today color seems to be the name of the game when it comes to painting. Adding a distinctive accent wall color or darker earth tones seems give homes a warmth that wasn’t present when all we did was paint the wall Navajo White.
Here are three examples of painting projects that we did in our new home that really added character and warmth:
Paint Your Front
Door With An Accent Color
Add A Chair Rail and
Two Tone Wall Color To A Room
Paint A Room With A Dark Color
Contrasting White Wainscoting
Love the red door. All 3 houses we’ve owned have red doors. There’s apparently some psychological real estate study that shows that red doors help homes sell faster – draws your eyes right to the focal point on your home. Very cool.
You have to match it with the body color too, it goes well with lots of colors but not with all of the colors. http://edpaintingonline.com
