Pre-Painting Tips For Interiors Of Your House

Painting walls is the best way to brighten up your house. Whether you love dark colors that deliver drama or you are a fan of tranquil hues, a few gallons of paint can instantly elevate the whole look of the room. Before you get excited and lay your hands on a paintbrush and roller, it’s crucial that you make sure that the interiors of your house are ready for a painting job. It’s no secret that preparation leads to perfection.

Follow these steps to prepare your house for a sharp and well-done painting job

1. Move away all the furniture out of the way: It’s best to move away all your furniture to another room. This way you can avoid the risk of damaging the furniture with paint drips and splatters. However, if you can’t move them to another room, just move them to the centre of the room and cover them with plastic sheets. Use a painter’s plastic so that the paint doesn’t drip past the sheets.

2. Cover the entire floor: If you are planning to paint the walls as well as the ceiling, it’s best to cover the entire floor. Use canvas drop cloths. They do not just soak the heavy spills but you also avoid the risk of slipping. If you are not painting the ceiling, then use a canvas cloth that’s just a few feet wide. It’s best to cover the entire floor so that you are safe, not sorry.

3. Clean the walls: Use a microfibre to clean the walls. If you are planning to paint the kitchen and the bathroom, use a liquid detergent to clean the walls. You can rinse the walls, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, with water. Let the walls dry completely. You can also sand or vacuum the walls. Remove the moulds, if there are any.

4. Repair the damaged areas: Carefully inspect walls for cracks, holes or dents. Before you begin priming the walls, it’s important that you patch all imperfections. What may seem like a small hole will stick out like a sore thumb once the painting job is over. Even the best paint for walls would look bad, if there are unsightly cracks and dents. It’s best to use sealants with excellent hiding property.

5. Prime your walls: For a professional finish, prime the walls. A primer covers the existing paint color and gives you a perfect finish. It may seem like a lot of work but it will increase the paint durability and you may require fewer coats of paint. Use our BP Cement Primer (https://www.bergernepal.com/product-detail/bp-cement-primer–wt-) to ensure your walls are perfectly smooth. Our primer has excellent opacity that ensures the paint color you use looks vibrant and bright.

6 Exterior Wall Decor Must-Try Ideas

When working on the exterior decor of your home, the walls are one of the most important decor elements to consider. Whether you want to play with textures or experiment with different exterior wall paint colors to achieve the right look, there are endless options for you to choose from.

To make things easier for you, we’ve listed down a few creative exterior wall decor ideas. Enjoy the interesting read below:

1) Nature-inspired decor

Mother nature is the best artist; by using natural elements, you cannot go wrong in creating an intriguing aesthetic. One creative way to make your home’s exterior walls look nature-inspired is to keep climbing plants.

Paint the walls with our aqua blue shade Gaugin’s Blue (5T1156) to create a vibrant backdrop which artistically complements the plant’s color.

2) Modern meets rustic

What happens when you create the right mix of modern and rustic in your exterior walls? Magic! This decor idea requires a bit of work but it’s totally worth it. Keep a vintage-looking iron bench in front of one of the exterior walls (the wall facing the garden makes the best spot).

Accessorise the bench with a wooden crate with clusters of flowers placed on it. Complete the look by painting the walls with our bright yellow shade Yellow Zodiac (3A0388).

3) A welcoming look

What better way to impress your guests than by creating a welcoming look in the exterior walls? Choose an iron welcome signage and install it on the front exterior wall of your home. Match the rigid texture of the signage with large-sized ceramic flower pots. To nail the look, use our classic neutral shade, Palace Walls (7P0188).

4) A little something for the garden walls

Who said you can’t be creative with the design of your garden’s walls? One inexpensive way to spruce up the garden walls is to keep a hanging wooden shelf. Accessorise the shelf with small potted plants and colorful mason jars.

To highlight the shelf, create a neutral backdrop by painting the walls with our balanced white shade White Sphere (8P2679).

5) A vintage appeal

Nothing beats a vintage look when it comes to creating a lasting impression. Add a timeless charm to your home’s exterior walls by installing black-colored vintage metal wall lamps. Black wall lamps stand out in a bright backdrop.

Paint the walls with our orange shade Sun Blazer (2D2034) to draw more attention to the wall lamps. A bit of greenery works just fine for completing the look.

6) Tea party-ready balcony

What better place to host tea parties for your favourite people than in your balcony? Make your balcony ready for conversational tea parties by creating a light and relaxing background. Our off white shade Crystal Blade (8P2767) helps you create a neutral backdrop. Use a couple of wall hangings to accessorise the walls in a stylish way. Also, do not forget to use potted plants to create a refreshing ambience in the space.

Tips To Choose The Best Front Door Color

While giving the exteriors of your home a facelift, are you skipping or neglecting the front door – the most important part of your home’s exterior? By styling the front door right, you can give your guests a stylish welcome.  While there are several ways to decorate your front door, choosing the right colors is one of the effective ways to amp up the visual appeal of your home, and we are here to help you choose the right colors for your front door:

1) In sync with the surrounding wall colors

One simple way to choose colors for your front door is to take visual cues from the surrounding wall colors. This approach helps you create a thought-out look for the exteriors of your home.

For example, if you have painted the front walls beige or with other similar neutrals, then natural wooden colors go right with the color scheme. If your front door has a natural barewood finish, improve its appearance by polishing it. Another option is to choose a light or a dark wooden color such as our shades Afterburn (1D0219) and Autumn Leaves (1D2017), and transform the door’s look. Apply 2 coats of exterior primer on the door to make sure the colors come out right. Explore exterior primer price at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats

2) Go monochrome

For small homes, a monochrome look can help you create a decluttered look. Paint the front walls, door headers, and columns white so that they visually blend in together. Next, paint the front door completely with black; our balanced black shade Tuxedo Tail (8A2693) makes a great choice.

Choosing a glossy black paint will help you create a chic look. To get more creative with the color, paint the door knob golden. Keep a couple of potted plants to add a dose of greenery.

3) Stick with the classics

Nothing beats classic colors when it comes to withstanding the test of time. If you have a vintage, cottage-style home, a dark green color like our Shaded Woods (8A2664) creates the right retro-chic look.

The timeless character of this color helps your home’s facade stay in vogue amidst the changing seasons and trends. Choose metals such as copper and bronze for a doorknob and front lighting fixture to effortlessly pull off the classic, timeless look.

4) Take the bold approach

Things, at times, get boring when you play by the rules. One safe way to artistically break away from the convention is to create a striking color contrast – if the exterior wall colors are light, then paint the front door with a bright color.

Our bright blue shade Blue Daydream (5T0294) creates a striking contrast against a white backdrop. Apart from the front door, you can also use the color to bring the windows and trims to life. The shade makes a vibrant and attractive interior wall paint color as well.
