Can your walls make you feel good?

Sometimes it creeps up on you, and sometimes it hits you – but very few human beings today can claim that they have never felt low. And while the best thing to do always is to sort it out internally, we are simple creatures. A cup of ice-cream, a favourite song – something as simple as even this can lift our spirits.

But the disadvantage of the cup of ice-cream and song is that you can’t eat ice-cream and listen to your favourite song everyday, unless you want to fall ill from all that sugar and ‘milk’ and break any electronic device that plays that song you now can’t stand.

No. What would be nicer is something ambient. Something which is a big part of your life, yet is not intrusive to the senses.

We are talking of course, about your walls. And that’s why we’re going to give you some quick painting ideas so that whenever you wake up from bed or are sitting by your table with a cup of coffee, if nothing else, your walls will be able to make you feel like you are in a good place.

A blue hue – A colour which can create an aura of relaxation. Although its overuse in corporate spaces has associated it with a cold and formal vibe, it’s actually a very warm colour, especially for the bedroom.

Yellow – Add some sunshine to your walls! This colour works great especially in making cramped areas, which normally don’t help the spirits, look bigger and more spacious. Your kitchen or dining room could do well with this shade. But be careful – too much yellow and you’ve got an eyesore. Respect the sunshine, and use it intelligently.

Green – For the same reason we want to look outside a window at the trees, green is a serene colour which probably makes us feel more in touch with nature. And on your walls, that’s the vibe it’s going to give.

Purple – If a feminine and royal vibe is what gets you going, purple is the thing for you. But too much use of it isn’t good.

Choosing paint colours for your home

Ever been in a fix about picking house paint colours when redecorating? Join us as we help you figure out how to go about it!

We know choosing paint colours for your house is never an easy task and requires a bit of thought as you’ll be surrounded by your choice of shades for a while. Let’s find out how to pick the best hues that you will be pleased you picked!

1. Start with an inspiration

You can derive inspiration from the daily elements in your life such as a beautiful colourful blanket you love, a curtain or even a cup! Look for inspiration from your surroundings, it’s all around you! Be it the greens of the lush gardens you love or the blues of the ocean facing your sea-front house or if you’re city-bred, the skies!

Bringing the outside in is a popular inspiration for colour schemes. Here’s an important tip when using this technique, make sure to sample the colours in daylight and at night with the windows open and closed to see how it translates in your space. You can even look for inspiration from existing décor pieces or artworks and pick colours from them to create a colour scheme for your house.

2. Stick with neutrals

Colour is good but you need to first decide where you want the attention in a room to go. If your answer is the walls, then you should opt for bold shades. And if you go bold on the walls, everything else in the room should be neutral so that you don’t end up with too many things clashing.

Important Tip: Look for neutral shades for the walls if everything in the room is going to be bold and vibrant.

3. Use testers

Testing a few colours and trying it on some patches of the wall in your room will give you a better idea of how it looks when light hits it at different times of the day. Try your best not to test your paint against white walls as it will throw the colour off. However, if you have to, just do a larger test area.

4. Test your paint colours against furniture and fabrics

Along with testing the colours on the walls, you also need to check it against your existing furniture and fabrics. You can paint a piece of poster board with the colour you wish to use on the walls and hold it up against the sofa, table, or other furniture items and kinds of fabrics. Even if it does not match completely, it works if the undertones go nicely together.

5. Pick the right sheen

What you need to know about sheen is that it accentuates the flaws on the surface, which is why if you are trying to mask flaws, go with as little sheen as possible.

There you go! We hope you found our quick tips on how to choose the perfect house paint colours handy!

Expert Tips To Create A Clutter-Free Home

Have you looked at home decor magazines and thought, “I wish my house could look neatly-organized like that.”? Well, creating a clutter-free look in your home isn’t wishful thinking. The trick lies in paying attention to the key aspects that make your rooms look spick and span. What the key areas to focus on? Check out the list below:

1) Choose a neutral wall color

It all starts with the wall colors you choose when it comes to creating a clutter-free look in your rooms. Light neutrals work wonders in lending a neat look to any given space. White Sphere (8P2679) is one of the most sophisticated and neat-looking light neutral shades in our Color Catalogue. Use the shade to give your room’s walls a spruced-up look. To achieve the best finish of the shade, use our undercoat paint Seal-O-Primer. The primer increases the longevity of the wall color by providing protection against dampness and efflorescence.

Install recessed lighting in the ceiling to make sure the room is well-lit and all the corners are visible. Limit wall hangings to two to three to make sure the walls don’t look too overcrowded. The same goes with sofa cushions and throws, don’t overdo them.

2) Limit tabletop accessories to just bare essentials

If you have an office set up at your home, you’d probably know how often space gets cluttered. One simple trick to keep your home office look neat and organized at all times is to keep tabletop accessories to the minimum. Keep only the items that you need regularly to avoid unnecessary items piling up on your work desk.

Invest in an office desk that has multiple drawers. You can dedicate the drawers to store specific items so that it’s easier for you to find them when you need them.

3) Use multipurpose furniture

Furniture items are undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of any room. However, they can crowd your room and contribute to the overall clutter.

The less furniture you have, the easier it is for you to keep your rooms clutter-free. One simple trick to lessen the number of furniture items in your room is to go for multipurpose furniture. For example, you can choose a wardrobe with a standing mirror installed on it instead of buying two separate furniture items.

4) Put your kitchen cabinets to use

Your kitchen cabinets are there for a reason, and that is storage. When you make the most out of the cabinetry’s storage area, you can clear up space in your countertops and declutter your kitchen.

Installing cabinet lighting can help you highlight the countertop walls and create a well-organized look. On the island countertop, limit accessories to just 3 to 4 units. Throw in some metallic accents such as chrome and bronze with appliances and kitchen hardware to introduce a sleek and sophisticated look.

Factors To Consider Before Painting Your Office

A workplace is more than just a location where people earn their living. For many, it’s the second home given the amount of time they spend there. Whether it’s about creating a lasting impression on the clients or it’s about creating a more appealing work environment for employees, a fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest yet most effective changes that you can bring to an office space. Colors play an important role in productivity and job performance of employees and at the same time, it helps in creating customer perception. Thus, when it comes to painting your office, there are certain factors to be taken into consideration. Here are some office painting ideas that will make your office look fun as well as professional:

1.Customer perception: It goes without saying that your customers will judge your business based on how your office looks. A freshly painted office evokes a positive feeling and lends it more credibility. Thus, before painting your office, ask yourself what kind of impression do you want to create on the customers.  While you would love to incorporate bright colors, you would still want it to look professional.

2.Mood and morale of employees: The office colour design has a huge impact on the mood and the morale of the employees. While yellow inspires optimism, blue has a calming effect. Red is a highly energizing color that can be used for the sales office. However, it can be sometimes distracting too. So, it is ideal for accent walls. Our Empress Rose (1D0324) is one of the best office colours for accent walls in executive office suites. It is graceful and yet on an unconscious level highly energizing.

4.Professional look: Always keep it in mind that the main purpose of your office is to do business and thus don’t go overboard with colors. If you want to create a vibrant office environment, then use bright colors as accents. However, when it comes to office cafeteria and game zones, give them a playful look. You can seek professional help in deciding what kind of office wall colour combination suits the kind of business you are doing. For instance, the office of an advertising agency office won’t look the same as that of a shipping company.

4. Never ignore the exteriors: Even before a client sets foot into your office, it’s the exteriors of your office that creates the first impression. Creating a perfect first impression starts with the exteriors. Therefore, it is necessary that is it not just clean, but also attractive. Get the exteriors of the office painted regularly. Make sure the exterior walls do not have any moulds, algae, seepage and uneven surfaces.

Also, make sure that before you start the commercial painting job, you use a primer. Using a primer gives the walls an even surface and reduce the need for too many top coats.
