I’ve always had a fascination with the world of paint and the many decisions a homeowner has to make. The reality is that as someone that buys homes through the construction market, it is no surprise that I am often asked “should you paint your new construction home?” And I also get asked “what color should you paint your new construction home?” It is the latter that I find the most surprising and a little overwhelming.
First of all, let me clear up a few misconceptions about painting your new construction home. The first one is that if you paint a new home you are basically just painting the exterior of your home. It is not the interior that you are painting, however, and you should paint the interior and not just the exterior. Painting the interior will make the exterior look much grayer. Painting your home interior can be pretty easy, but doing it right does take some planning and time.
The other misconception is that you should paint all of your house. It is not a good idea to paint your entire house at once or to paint your entire house in one color. Painting the exterior of your home can be easy, but painting the interior is a much more time-consuming job.
Painting your home interior is a lot of fun. It takes some time and a lot of skills, but it is actually a pretty easy and fun project. The best advice I have for painting your home is that you should do it as efficiently as possible. If you’re painting your house first, you are going to spend a lot of time working on it before going to the interior. Don’t paint it before you have it.
Painting your house first is a good rule of thumb. Dont paint it before you have it. That means you dont have to worry about whether you have the right brush or a good idea for the color(s) that you want to paint your house. Once you have your house painted, you have to wait to paint the interior until you have time to decide how you want to decorate your house.
Dont paint interior first. You can paint the exterior first and just wait until you have time to plan the inside.
This is something that a lot of new homeowners struggle with, that painting the interior first is a bad idea. Paint is a very labor intensive process, especially when you dont want to spend hours worrying about the right color for the wall! I know this because this was something I had to do when I first moved into my house and had to have someone come in and paint the walls before I could get some of my family to move in there.
Painting the walls is a time consuming process. It also takes time to redo them from scratch because you dont want to have a different paint job in each room just to make it look like it was painted the same way. Once you have the right color in your mind, then the rest of the interior is pretty easy. So what you really want to do, is to start with the paint.
I am not suggesting that you start off with your paint colors the same way that you started off with your furniture colors. You may think that is what you are doing, but this is not the case. It is perfectly acceptable to go back and change the colors you chose earlier. It happens all the time.
In that case, it’s usually best to start with a few ideas, and see how you like them, then go back and start with the color that you are most comfortable with. For instance, if you are a person who likes to paint their walls white, but you are more comfortable with their colored wall paint, then choose a few colors that you like and see how you like them. Then start with those colors and make your decision. The same goes for your furniture.
