Just bought a new home? I bet you’re looking for a new color scheme right? Of course you are! Here’s some tips on “staying within the lines” when you’re picking out paint color for your new home.
Use the best paint you can afford. Most of my clients in Marvin, Wesley Chapel, Weddington, Waxhaw and Matthews ask for Benjamin Moore. The color palette is very conducive to the homes here in South Charlotte.
Hire a Professional to help you with your color choices. Again, the homes here in South Charlotte are 3,550 square feet and larger. Do you want to gamble with all that space of wrong color? It would be very expensive to do over so just try to do it right the first time. That also goes for the painters you use.
Consider using a flat or matte paint sheen for your home. Even the new homes in South Charlotte have irregular and imperfections in the walls. If you add the slightest paint sheen to it, like an eggshell, it will be amplified. This also goes for touch-ups when you paint. If you don’t have a good paint team, you’ll see brush marks all over your walls.
Thinks outside the box when it comes to your color choices. Beige, white, tan, sage green and red (yes and even red) are all very safe choices but are so very boring! If you hire a Color Specialist to help you with your colors (hopefully that would be me) choose unique color. Think about the colors I have in the graphic. These beautiful hues combined with some of those other “safe” colors make for an amazing color palette.
