How to Use Paint to Freshen Up Your Home For Spring!

Spring is the time of year when we all start to think about freshening up our homes.  The most economical and dramatic change can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint.  But picking out the right color can easily become an overwhelming task for some of us.  Here are some great tips to help you choose the right color to freshen up your home.

One great tip we have for making paint selections is to first recognize what your color personality is.  We all have one.  First, start with your closet.  What color palette fills it?  What colors do you gravitate towards in magazines, online, or on Pinterest?  Knowing your color personality can help save you money and time.

Once you know your color preferences, try having fun.  Find a fresh tone or two within your comfort zone and try it out.  You can purchase a sample and paint a large square on your wall.  Live with that color for a week, and after that if you still enjoy it, go for it!

You can always update your home by painting smaller areas such as the trim, doors, shutters, fireplace, or an accent wall.
