Painting Tips & Tricks

Tips & Tricks
Room small? Paint the moldings the same color as the walls (use a satin or high gloss finish) it will make them disappear and create an expansive feel to your room.
Room narrow? Paint three walls in one color and the fourth wall in a darker color. This will bring the fourth wall in and make the room appear wider.
Ceilings low? If you have a smooth ceiling, paint it in a high gloss paint finish. It will be reflective and make the ceiling seem higher.
Ceilings too high? Paint the walls in a rich dark color and bring the ceiling color down onto the walls by 12” to 18” depending on how high your ceilings are, this will draw the eye down to a more normal size space.
Note: The woodwork trim is painted the same color as the walls and the ceiling is high gloss.
