With a new year comes new paint trends. This year the paint manufacturers tried to not only find what they felt was the color for this year but a color to start a new decade. They follow paint trends pretty carefully, after all, it is their business. They put a ton of research into sales trends and use those to develop yearly forecasts for what they believe will be the color or colors of the year.
Sure, the 90-degree temperatures and sticky humidity screams summer. But if you are thinking about a paint refresh in your home, think Christmas in July! That’s right, there is still time to transform your home for the holidays. Whether it’s painting cabinets, new exterior paint, or freshening up the wall colors in your home now is the time to start thinking about getting it done.
This two-story home in Overland Park, built in 2004, is similar to one many of us have seen. The home layout is ideal for today’s lifestyle but the style…not so much. Yet, ripping out and replacing beautiful cabinets seemed like such a waste, which is where the power of paint comes in.
So often you see before and after photos and probably don’t know all the different details that go into making that after look so good. It’s not just updating the cabinets, painting the walls or replacing the floors. It is about the details and we are going to delve into one of those details today.
Paint manufacturers follow paint trends pretty carefully, after all, it is their business. They put a ton of research into sales trends and use those to develop yearly forecasts for what they believe will be the color or colors of the year. While some of us aren’t exactly running to paint our entire home in their elected color of the year it is fun to take a look at where the trends are heading and see how they could be incorporated in our home’s design.
Paint is an amazing thing. It can instantly refresh a drab room or offer a pop of color. Painted cabinets can completely transform your home for a fraction of the cost of new cabinets. The end result never ceases to amaze! We’re about to kick off the holiday season and if you’re looking to freshen up your home quickly for guests or as a gift to yourself, our painting services may be a great option.
