Ultimate List Of Painting Mistakes One Should Avoid

In our last segment, we shared with you some of the common painting mistakes that people make. We just found out that you all have been there as many of you wrote back with painting goof-ups that you have made. Whether it was hiring an amateur painter or not spending money on high-quality tools, our readers shared with us how they went from picture-perfect to design disasters. With the help of our readers, we have compiled the ultimate list of painting mistakes one should avoid.  

1. Buying cheap brushes and rollers: While home renovation projects tend to be expensive, it may make sense to cut corners wherever possible. However, it would not be prudent to cut costs by going for the cheapest tools available. Low-quality brushes, rollers and paint sprays will not give the paint good coverage. They will also not long last. An uneven job will force you to change the tools midway. What may seem like saving money will cost you in the long run. 

2. Hiring amateur painter:  When you hire a professional painter, the end job looks professional. When you hire an amateur to save money, you end up with botched up work. It best to hire a professional painter or paint company to paint your home. The equipment that professional painters bring along with them, the efficiency with which they work and the amazing quality of work they do are all unmatchable.

3. Not waiting for the first coat of paint to dry: You can kill the look of your wall by painting the second coat without letting the first coat dry. It’s best to read the instructions on the paint carefully rather than relying on guesswork. It is best to way for at least 24 hours before applying the second coat of paint.

4. Skipping undercoats: The undercoats have a specific job to do. They are meant to prepare the wall for the topcoats. They prevent paint colors from bleeding through and provide adhesion and smooth surface.  When you skip applying undercoats, you end up with uneven coverage. Moreover, without an undercoat, the wall soaks too of paint, increasing the cost of your painting work.

5. Not taking the weather into consideration: Whether you are painting the exterior of your house or interior, it’s a must that you take weather into consideration. Painting your house when the humidity levels are high is not recommended. Moisture in the air can make it difficult for the paint to dry. Summer is usually the most appropriate time to paint. Warm and dry weather ensures that you will be done with your painting job quickly.

How To Paint A Large Room?

Painting a large room can be daunting. You don’t want it to look cold and be devoid of any personality. Stark white expanses can be quite boring and monotonous. You will struggle to make it look interesting with artwork and wall accessories. The idea behind a painting a room is to create a welcoming setting. To infuse color into a large space, we have rounded up a few tips from our interior experts. Keeping these tips in mind you can ensure that your painting project is a success.

Here are a few ideas to paint a large room

1. Embrace dark colors: An all-white room can be bland and uninspiring. But when you are blessed with a large room, you can use dark colors to give the room a touch of drama. Navy blue, deep purple and shades of gray can give a large room a sense of intimacy. Deep warm hues provide a perfect backdrop for the dining area or the living room. They make them so cosy that you actually look forward to spending time in that room. To create an elegant effect, make sure to use light-colored furniture pieces that have golden or silver edges. Metal accents can lend a large room a glamorous feel.

2. Two-toned wall: If you have a high ceiling, then go for a two-toned wall. It will give the room a cosy feeling and trick you into thinking that the ceilings are lower than they are. In a really large living, a two-toned wall helps to create two zones. They can be used to separate the dining area from the living room. To create visual intrigue, you can keep a sofa between the two zones.

3. Let the ceiling do the talking: If you want to lend your room a magical vibe, then try painting the ceiling. A yellow ceiling will brighten up a neutral setting. It will create a playful counterpoint to the walls painted in neutral colors. If you are going for a bold color for the ceiling, balance it with crisp white walls.

4. Create contrast: To lend your room a dramatic flair, try pairing it with cool shade. Don’t shy from away from using a bold color like blue for your accent wall. Make sure the furniture and accents go well with bold color. The contrast of a blue accent wall against white walls can look very modern and chic. If you are choosing a dark color for the accent wall, make sure the furnishing and furniture are light-coloured. This way both the walls and the furniture will look stylish and elevated together. Let the color of the accent drive the design process and set the mood of the room.

Most Popular Home Design Trends For Millennial

They are tech-savvy, crazy travelers, nature lovers, and experience seekers. They are the millennials. They are nothing like their grandparents and definitively their taste in home decor is nothing like theirs. When it comes to home decor, the millennials are more like collectors than not hoarders. They collect more moments and not just items that have hefty price tags. And, they are not scared of playing around with colors when it comes to home decor. From living rooms to dining spaces, we’ll show you how millennials redefined home design.

Here are a few trends that would help you understand the impact that millennials have on home decor:

  1. Punchy pink decor: Thanks to the millennials, pink and other pastel colors are having their moment. Pastels are trendiest now and this trend is not going anywhere. It is the millennials who have made pink sophisticated and suave. If you wish to create a millennial decor with pink, go for our Coral Sea (1T0223). The best thing about the shade is that it is a cross between pink and coral. It will give a mature and sophisticated look to your house. The shade will lend your living room a youthful spin without the over-top feel of bubblegum pink. Pair the color with light-colored furniture to bring its crispiness out.

  2. Nature-inspired decor: The millennials love to bring outdoor indoor. It is for this reason that naturally brilliant green dining space is not off-the-mark in a millennial home. The green wall brings in the essence of a forest and the white furniture makes the wall color less overpowering. The white furniture and dark green walls are the perfect examples of sophisticated and yet relaxed decor. To emulate this look, paint the walls of your house with our Spearmint Drop (4D2157). To create a room that looks rustic, pair green with furniture in natural wood. And, don’t forget to place a few potted plants to capture the feel of nature.

  3. Spa-like bathroom: Unlike their grandparents, the millennials do not ignore the bathroom when decorating their house. Besides taking care of health and hygiene, the millennials make sure that the bathrooms in their house are like a relaxing oasis like this navy blue bathroom with white fixtures. No matter you have a big bathroom or a small, you can recreate this look in your house with our Blue Bubble (5D0295) and Pearly White (8P1729). It’s a never-fail combination.

The millennials love a sleek and stylish kitchen and they are not scared of embracing bold colors. And, red is one such color that has made its way to the kitchens recently. Known for whetting the appetite, the millennials are lending a wow factor to their kitchen with red.
