Paint your room like the pros, and you can do it over the
weekend if you like. After that, you will always want to
hangout in your beautiful room. Here are the tips on
painting a room:
Examine your window treatments, existing furniture, and
the other accessories found inside the room. If you’re
trying to paint a new room, then you will not bother
yourself of these details because you can go ahead in
deciding the color scheme that you like. But if you have
an existing room, choose the colors that you like from the
items found in your room. Your paint dealer can help you
in coordinating the different colors by providing you with

still a way to change it. Simply paint a muted color or a
lighter shade over the bold color using techniques like
sponging, color washing, and rolling.
The color can also affect the size of the room. Warm
and strong colors such as oranges, reds, and yellows can
make your room appear smaller. If you want to make it
appear larger, use colors such as blue, violet, and green.
