Colors That Will Make Your Home Ready To Welcome ‘Dashain’

Dashain is exciting, and so are the colors associated with the year-long anticipated festival. No other festival in Nepal equals Dashain when it comes to celebrating good times with your loved ones amidst vibrant colors.

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:

1) Red

If there’s one color that truly captures the essence of Dashain, it’s red. As a color of the tika, red adorns the color palette of Dashain with a vibrant charm. The color symbolizes love, happiness, prosperity, and strength – all of which make Dashain a much-treasured festival.

Red makes a great interior and exterior house paint color. Choose our sophisticated shades of red, including Cameroon Rose (1D0479), Boston Brick (1A0512), and Scarlet Tide (1A2794); pair these red shades with supporting colors such as black, deep violet, and titanium for the exterior and interior of your home.

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. With these shades of blue, you can welcome the bright and lively days of Dashain in your home in an effortless way.

Undercoat Paint: Why Is It Necessary

Why do home painting professionals recommend using undercoat paint prior to applying the topcoat? What’re the benefits of applying undercoat paint? We’ll be discussing the answers to these questions here –

1) Undercoat paint ensures proper adhesion of top coats

Proper adhesion plays an important role in ensuring the longevity of the paint. Without proper adhesion to the wall surface, the new paint starts flaking within a couple of month’s time. Whether you want to apply the new paint over a glossy or a rough surface, using a bonding primer will help you create an outer layer that the new paint can stick to.

At Berger Paints Nepal, we provide undercoat paints that are designed to provide a high sheen and lasting finish to new paints. Explore some of the best paint for walls at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats.

2) Undercoat paint seals pores in unfinished surfaces

Unfinished surfaces such as bare wood and concrete have numerous small-sized pores which absorb paint. To understand the problem better, you can take a piece of unfinished wood and apply a coat of paint over it, you’ll notice that the paint starts thinning as it is absorbed in the pores. In other words, you’ll have to apply multiple coats of paint on unfinished wall surfaces which significantly increases your paint expenses.

To steer clear of this issue, it’s important to paint such unfinished surfaces with a high-quality primer. Apply two coats of primer and allow 1 day of drying time for each coat. This way, you’ll just have to apply 1 or 2 coats of paint.

3) Undercoat paint ensures a uniform finish

When applying paint coats directly over wall surfaces, you don’t always achieve a uniform finish. This is because many wooden and concrete walls have dark or light-colored patching on them, especially when they are recently repaired.

Similarly, you may not achieve a consistent finish if the walls have stains such as crayon marks and greasy spots on them. Applying undercoat paint helps you create a blank slate which, in turn, ensures a consistent paint color finish.

4) Undercoat paint ensures the correct color of the topcoat

When you are making a major color switch, you can’t achieve the correct color of the new topcoat if you paint it over the existing one. Because the result you will get will be the combination of the existing and new colors.

For example, if you are painting a light shade directly over a dark one, the new topcoat will develop a dark tinge. It is often advised to first bring the existing wall colors to a neutral white using a primer and then proceeding with the new topcoat.

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.
