Comparing House Painting Contractors

You should always compare your estimates from one contractor to another. Not all estimates are going to include the same materials, coats of paint, prep work, caulk and labor, that's just a few examples. When comparing one proposal with the next you can have a better understanding as to what your actually going to be paying for. You want to hire thepainting contractor that will provide you the best VALUE,warranties, quality workmanship, quality materials and whom is knowledgeable and professional.

Selling A N.Y House

Think Paint. A good first impression helps sell your home

It can't be overstated—when it comes to buying a house, the first impression is everything. If you're selling or
 getting ready to sell in the coming months, one of the easiest and most dramatic ways to enhance that first impression is through paint.

Fresh paint makes your house look clean, bright, and inviting.
"Painting your house's exterior before you put it on the market give the biggest bang for your fix-up buck—if you use colors that conform with your neighborhood's decorating norm," says Eric Tyson and Ray Brown in their book "House Selling for Dummies (Hungry Minds Inc.

Creating Small Space Into Cozy Space

Are you looking for a cozy, intimate space? Use soft, snuggly upholstered pieces, dark, warm tones, and dramatic lighting, turning a small corner space into a  wonderful private space.
Making a small space feel larger without serious renovations, some decorating changes, using color, furniture arranging, and interesting lighting, your space will feel larger.

Remove Clutter (organize):
To much stuff makes a small space feel even smaller. Once things are arranged and out of sight, the space will feel organized and open.

Paint Color Schemes

Monochromatic schemes are based on one hue, which varies in value (lightness and darkness), and saturation (the amount of color). An example of this is a pale blue with a pure blue and dark blue.

Analogous schemes combine no more than three similar colors. An example of this is red, yellow red (orange), and yellow.
Complementary schemes are based on opposing colors. This scheme offers more contrast and can introduce both warm and cool colors into the area. An example would be the burgundy complementing the three shades of green in your front door
