Choosing the color.
Your living room should be the room where family members spend most of their time together. Knowing this, you should pick only the most pleasant colors. Green, yellow, blue or even shades of red and orange all have their effects on the mood.Green color provides a feeling of balance and harmony to everyone in that room. Blue is often mentioned as calming color, so varieties of blue are the tones you can use for the living room.After you picket the right color for the room, you can continue with applying the paint.
In order make everything clean, cover the floors with old newspapers or nylon to avoid splashing color and ruining your rug. Connect the pieces and layers with duct tape to ensure the safety of your rug or floor. Before applying paint to walls, you should also use duct tape on corners and along the edge of a wall. This way you will create a fine line, and you can use paint rollers with ease without worrying about crossing the line. Wait for the paint to dry before applying another layer. Not every color reacts the same on some surfaces. To ensure that you got the right tone wait and see the color after every layer dries off.
You can make different shapes and make the room look more interesting if you use this simple technique. The idea is to make a spiral shape from duct tape or anything that you can stick to a surface. After applying the paint remove the duct tape to create stunning visual effects on the wall or ceiling. Get the right tools to do the job. Remember that you will do this every year so don’t go cheap on the rollers and brushes. Working with the right tools will shorten the time needed for the job and make it easier for you to do it.
Don’t do it all by yourself, rather call friends that are willing to help, and expect them to call you when they decide to do redecoration of their home. It will be fun and much easier to do it if you have some helping hands. If no one can help you with home painting, you can always pay for help.
