Using Paint to Celebrate the Holidays
When it’s time to celebrate the holidays, festive paint colors and creative painting touches really get us into the holiday spirit.
If you’ve been thinking of updating your home interior paint job, or are considering a room update as a holiday gift for that special someone, ‘tis the season to tackle room painting projects.
A fresh coat of paint will lift the mood and dazzle your visitors and guests throughout the holiday season and into the new year.
We have some suggestions for how to brighten your home with new painting during the holidays and keep it looking great year-round.
Paint Your Cabinets
The kitchen is often the center of the holiday hustle and bustle. Getting your kitchen in tip-top shape with a cabinet painting project is a great way to inspire togetherness in one of your home’s most important rooms without the cost of doing a full-scale kitchen remodel.
Use your wall colors as a guide to selecting new cabinet colors for your kitchen. Find adjacent colors on the color wheel to know the color family, or choose the color across from your kitchen wall color for a complementary effect.
Choose Uplifting Wall Colors
Painting a wall seems daunting, since it has the potential to transform a room. But there are lots of versatile wall colors that lift the mood and create a welcoming feeling in any space.
Red and green are two rich, dark colors that allow for a lot of versatility in design and decor, and they’re unmistakable reminders of the holiday season. But those two aren’t your only paint color options for a brighter home this holiday season.
Winter whites and other creamy neutral colors can brighten a room and help your holiday decor stand out. Silver-gray is a popular color for a modern look that can emphasize the warm glow of holiday lights.
Just like planning around your favorite piece of art or furniture, your favorite holiday decor could be the inspiration for your next painting project. Decide which decor elements will be the focal point of your room or wall, and use the color wheel to choose colors for the desired effect.
Don’t Forget the Details
If you’d rather not undergo a large-scale painting project, there could be a few painting improvements to make that still make a great impression without repainting an entire room. You could pick a detail to change or highlight, such as:
- Trim: Interior trim painting can help a room or hallway look more polished right away. Your painter can help you pick a classic color for your trim or moulding that will elevate any room.
- Ceilings: Painting ceilings can make a room look larger and create the appearance of more space in a room. It’s more subtle than wall painting, but you still get beautiful results.
- Doors: A beautiful front door topped with your favorite wreath, few things are more welcoming to holiday guests. If it’s been a few years since your last door refinishing, giving it a refresh will make a great impression on everyone who enters your home.
