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.

Dark Colors For Interior Wall Paints

Give your walls a glamorous look

Create instant glamour by applying Silk Glamour Mettalic paints on your walls. Silk Glamor Metallic is a super-premium product that will give the designer finish to your walls. The metallic texture will lend your house a touch of elegance and a hint of moodiness.

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.

Colors For Minimalist Decor

Wall colors lay the foundation for any decor style. For a minimalist decor, you don’t have to be color-averse. With the right wall colors, you can capture the essence of minimalism and let it inspire your way of life. You can make your walls sing with the right paint colors.

To make things a tad easier for you, we have listed 5 minimalist colors that you cannot go wrong with. You can opt for these minimalist shades from Berger Paints Nepal’s extensive Color Catalogue.

1) Ivory:

Refer to any home decor magazine and you will come across ivory as one of the must-use colors for creating a minimalist look. Although you can use our Organic Ivory (7P0189) as interior wall paint in any room, the color works best for your living room. To make sure that the light decor doesn’t look plain, go for black furniture. The stark transition between dark and light will give your living room an intriguing look.

Berger Paints Nepal

2) Beige:

Beige is another wall color with which you cannot go wrong with when it comes to pulling off a minimalist decor in an effortless way. Use our Fossil Beige (7P0179) to transform your bedrooms into minimalist spaces. Pair the shade with matching neutrals such as cream, and mocha to create a thought-out color scheme in your bedrooms. For color variation through texture, go for light-colored wooden furniture. Though light-colored wooden furniture is minimalistic in terms of decoration, it is fabulously inspiring.

Berger Paints Nepal

3) Pink:

Pink is usually not the color that comes to mind when you talk about minimalist decor. However, soft pink like our Sheer Pink (1P0012) lends the room an air of sophistication.  The color helps you create a simple yet well-composed look in your rooms. Pair pink with beige sofa and light-colored furniture to create an unmistakable minimalist decor in your rooms.

4) Charcoal:

Charcoal is one of the best wall color choices for creating a darkish minimalist look in your rooms. Bearing a strong resemblance with black, our Charcoal Sky (8A0348) helps you introduce an element of sophistication in a minimalist decor. Pair charcoal with other softer shades such as light grey and matte black.

Berger Paints Nepal

5) White:

White is a commonly preferred wall color in minimalist decor styles. What’s most interesting to know is that white is one of the few minimalist colors that work well in every room. For creating a minimalist decor with a hint of sophistication, pair our Sandy White (8P2749) with light grey, taupe, and sand. Sandy White is the best white paint for interior walls for creating a minimalist look.

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.

Clean the wall - Berger Paints Nepal

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.

Try These Pretty Pastel Colors For Your Bedroom

When working on the decor of the bedroom, many people choose trending styles but miss out on one important aspect which is comfort. The trick is to balance comfort with an appealing aesthetic in order to nail the right look for your bedroom. And what better way to do this than by painting your bedroom walls with pastel colors?

Here’re 5 pretty pastel colors which we think can add a dose of magical charm to your bedroom:

1) Light green

Light green is one of the softest pastel colors that perfectly suit bedrooms. The wall color is one of the best paints for home interiors if you want to create a nature-inspired look in your bedroom. Also, light green’s soft tones lend a refreshing ambience to the decor.

Paint your bedroom walls with our pastel light green shade Elemint (4P0093). The shade pairs well with other soothing colors such as white, cloud, and tan. Welcome more sunlight to complement the pastel light green shade; potted indoor plants work well too.

2) Off-white

Off-white is an easy choice when it comes to choosing a balanced pastel color for your bedroom. What makes off-white a great choice is its versatility. Whether you are going for a contemporary look or prefer a minimalist decor, off-white will not let you down.

Our off-white shade Crystal Blade (8P2767) has an intriguing pastel beauty. Use the shade to give your bedroom a soothing look. Keep a colorful artwork on the headboard area to introduce an interesting color pop. Use area rugs, throws, and pendant light fixtures of various colors.

3) Muted beige

If you don’t want the vibrant look of white but still prefer the airy character of the color, muted beige is the right choice for you. The color has a comforting warmth to it which works great for elevating the comfort quotient of your bedroom.

Choose our pastel beige shade Walking on the clouds (8T1707) and use it to give a stylish transformation to your bedroom walls. To best complement the beige shade, accessorise your bed and cushioned seats with pastel-colored cushions.

4) Light blue

Light blue, as a pastel shade, works great in your bedroom when you use it as an accent color. Create a pastel accent wall in your bedroom by painting the headboard wall with our light blue shade Globe Trotter (8P2627).

White is one of the best colors that go well with the light blue shade. Use white abundantly yet creatively in the room to balance it with the light blue accent wall. Soft blue-colored pillows and throws are worth adding to the mix.

5) Light pink

When it comes to creating a cheerful and comforting look in your bedroom, you cannot go wrong with light pink, one of the trending pastel colors. Paint your bedroom walls with our light pink shade Pink Escape (1P0003) to create a relaxing ambience in your bedroom.

The shade best pairs with off-white, light grey, and lavender. Introduce more pink color pop by using deep pink area rugs, throws, and cushions. Faded violet is another color that you can mix with light pink.

Pink Color Schemes For Every Room

Pink embraces us with a playfulness that’s warm, comforting, and incredibly refreshing. So, really, what better color than pink to inject into your home palette for the year ahead? Interested in knowing how you can incorporate pink color schemes in your rooms? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place as here we’ve handpicked a list of interesting decor ideas centered around the color.

1) Intriguing shades of pink

One of the ways to use pink is to create a layering-like contrasting effect like the one shown below.

To nail this look, start with painting the walls with Moment In Time (1P1921). Next, choose a sofa that’s vibrant but not over the top. To get creative while accessorizing the sofa, place cushions of various light colors such as light blue, faded orange, and pastel purple.

2) A lasting style statement with an accent wall

When it comes to incorporating pink, you don’t always have to heavily focus on the color; subtly using the color works equally well. Implement this approach by painting a small pink accent wall in your bedroom.

If you have a recessed section in one of your bedroom walls, dedicate it for the accent spot. Choose our balanced pink shade Fluttering Heart (1P1986) to paint the accent wall. Paint the rest of the walls white to complement the accent wall. Accessories such as pink throws, cushions, and curtains are the right choice to add more visual intrigue to the pink color scheme.

3) The kitchen of your dreams

Who said you can’t decorate your kitchen with pink? The color helps you create an airy and composed look which, in turn, improves your culinary experience. Paint your kitchen walls with our pastel pink shade Grand Facade (1P1922). Introduce richer tones of pink in a stylish way by choosing pink tiles that are more vibrant.

Pink makes an unmistakable wall color choice for your kid’s bedroom. Choose our vibrant pink shade Winsome (1P0007) to bring the walls of your kid’s bedroom to life. Combine pink with white and yellow to create an element of playfulness in the space.

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.

This year, welcome the happiness and joy that Dashain brings by giving a festive makeover to your home. These colors associated with the festivity will help you make your home look Dashain-ready in an unmistakable way:

2) Yellow

Like red, yellow is almost everywhere in the Dashain festivities. It’s the color of the essential elements of the festival, including the jamaras, sayapatris, and hembaris of chaubandi cholos. In context to Dashain, yellow signifies peace and harmony.

Use yellow as an interior color to introduce a festive vibe in your rooms. Our tasteful yellow shades, Touch of Sunshine (3P0754), Coconut Cream (3P2069), and Yellow Veil (3T2085) help you double the festive essence in your rooms.

3) Green

Without green, the lively spirit of Dashain is not complete. Green enlivens the spirit of Dashain in an intrinsic way.

During Dashian, green can be used to make a style transformation in your rooms. Choose our balanced green shades, Green Paradise (4T0925), Green Echo (4D0271), and  Four Leaf Clover (4A0976) to elevate the festive look in your rooms.

4) Orange

Orange, the color of sayapatri flower, accents the color scheme of Dashain in a subtle yet tasteful way. The color creates a striking contrast with other colors that have a strong association with the festival.

Use orange as an interior color to introduce a festive charm in your rooms. Our vibrant orange shades Sundry (2T0685), Apricot Serenade (2D0227), and Orange Spice (2A0664) are some of the best paints for walls as they add a positive festive ambience to your rooms.

5) Blue

Clear blue sky is one of the elements of Dashian that brings forth the festive excitement. Playing on the swings under the bright blue Dashain sky is something you can’t miss out on during the festival.

If you are choosing blue as an exterior house paint color, then go for our deep blue shades Blue Daydream (5T0294) and Blue Bubble (5D0295) to create a welcoming look in your home’s exterior. Our light blue shades, Blue Tuft (5T2276) and Inner Peace (5T1179) make the perfect choice for elevating your rooms’ style quotient.

How To Decorate With Dark Colors? Check Out The Below Tips.

For a cozy setting, dark palettes are perfect. They can add a dramatic effect to any room. If executed properly dark colors can even give a small room statement-making presence. All you need to do is to create contrast and a sense of balance.  Here are a few ideas to use dark colors and make your house look chic and glamorous:

Dark colors: Want to know which ones are the best paint for your walls?

To help you choose the best color for interior walls, we have curated a list of dark shades that will give your home a lift

1.Stroll in the park(4T0933):  Green is one of the underestimated colors when it comes to home decor.  Our Stroll In The Park is a powerful color and reminds you of forage and everything natural.

Berger Paints Nepal

To nail this look, color the walls of your living room with Stroll In The Park and balance it with a mix of light and neutral-colored furniture and accessories. While the color gives a jungle-like vibe, the use of light-colored furniture such as a golden coffee table, golden frame, and ornate mirror gives the room a sparkly feel. To make the room alive and bring in the good vibes, potted plants can do wonders.

2.Blue Daydream (5T0294): Blue is one color that is classic and yet refreshingly new. It is one color that you can never get enough of. To bring the calmness of the sky and picturesqueness of the sea into your home, Blue Daydream is the best paint for walls. For a coastal-like feel, decorate the room with furniture in similar shades. To break away from the color monotony and make the room look a little bit airier, decorate the room with white accents like photo frames, and keep the flooring light-colored preferably white.

Berger Paints Nepal

3.Cherry Pie ( 1A0363) : If there’s one color that sends your adrenaline rushing, it’s red. Cherry Pie  is perfect for the kitchen and the dining room as red is considered to be a stimulating color. To stimulate the appetite and to let your eyes feast on your home decor, a dining room in Cherry Pie is what you would love to have. If you don’t want to paint the town red, offset the color with generous use of white. A white ceiling and a light-colored flooring can counterbalance the edginess of Cherry Pie.

4.Resilient Grey (8D2696): To bring the night-sky-like feel to your bathroom, paint it with Resilient Grey. It will give your bathroom a high-gloss feel and the white bathroom fixtures with high-shine taps can lend the bathroom a luxurious feel. To bounce off natural light, make use of mirrors.

5.Bright Wine (1a0366):  If paired with right accessories, Bright Wine instantly freshens up your decor. To nail this look, use natural elements like potted plants, bamboo accessories, and a vintage wooden chest. Mix and match textiles, glass and ceramic accessories to create an atmosphere that promotes calm and relaxation.

Our homes are an extension of ourselves and we want them to be a space where we feel relaxed. Right wall colors and decor play a key role in turning our living space into a cozy snug.  Are you looking for the best color for interior walls to add a high dose of cosines to your home decor?

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.
