With the holidays quickly approaching, everyone is thinking about interior painting and where they will house all the holiday guests. Interior painting is the foundation for creating a cozy guest room. Creating a cozy guest room with a paint project can transform the space and make your guests feel right at home. Here is how paint can transform your guest room.
Interior paint is an easy way to set the mood in any room. However, there is a lot to consider when you are planning a paint project. Color selection, preparation, protecting furniture and other goods, and more are all part of the painting process. Other factors are the timeline of the project, cleanup, and budget.
Working with a professional interior painting company will help with decision-making and ensure you get the results that you want for your guest room. Professionals will guide you in paint color and type (e.g., latex or oil-based) and the finish (e.g., flat, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss, or high-gloss) that best suits your needs.
The right professional interior painting company will work within your budget, get the painting project done quickly (without skimping on quality), and ensure you have the cozy guest room you envision. To avoid added stress around the holidays, choose a reputable painting company in your area for help with all aspects of this project.
Professional Prep for Paint
Creating a cozy atmosphere in any room requires that all wall and ceiling imperfections and flaws are addressed before the paint is applied. A professional interior painting team repairs both minor and major imperfections before they ever pick up a roller.
The painters will identify any imperfections, cracks, holes, or damage that need to be addressed before painting. Any imperfections on the wall, such as cracks or holes, are filled and patched using the right materials. They will sand away any excess material used to fill holes and cracks. This step ensures a smooth and even surface for the paint.
Gaps and seams around trim, windows, and doors are caulked to seal them and create a polished, finished look. Caulking also prevents drafts and enhances energy efficiency. If you have textured walls, professional painters can match the existing texture or create a new texture that suits your preferences. Texture matching ensures a cohesive look in the room.
Color Selection Support
Color selection is one of the most important parts of interior painting. Color can make a small room look larger, improve lighting in the space, and personalize a space. According to Benjamin Moore, the most popular interior paint colors for bedrooms are neutrals, grays, beiges, white, and earth tones. Of course, color selection is a highly personal journey, so make sure you’re taking your time with this step of the process.
To create a cozy setting for your guest room, there are a few colors you should consider. Light grays, muted blues and greens, mustard yellows, and light pastels are some of the top options for comforting bedrooms. When choosing the right color, consider the lighting in the room, the existing decor in the room, and your personal preferences.
One of the benefits of working with a professional interior painting team is getting help with color selection. There are so many colors to choose from it can be overwhelming, but with the right help, you can make an informed decision and choose a color that makes your guest room a haven of coziness.
Coordination with Lighting
Most people don’t realize how important it is to coordinate their paint color with natural lighting in the space. Paint colors can look different throughout the day based on the light that is streaming into the room from the windows. Lighting changes can bring out undertones in the paint as well. For example, in the early morning hours, a gray may look like a true gray, while later in the day, when the sun is brighter, that same gray can look more lavender.
One of the best ways to judge a color is to live with a swatch of it painted on the wall for a full day. You will be able to get a feel for the color by checking on it periodically throughout the day to see how the color changes in different lighting. Professional painters can coordinate paint colors with the room’s lighting to ensure that the color looks its best in different lighting conditions.
The goal of interior painters is to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the color and the quality of the paint job. Testing out paint is a vital step in the process of creating a cozy environment for your guests that you are happy with. Professional painters know how to coordinate the color you want in your guest room with the lighting.
Add an Accent Wall
Once you have your color selection made with the help of a professional interior painting team, you may want to consider one more color selection for the accent wall. Painters can help you create an accent wall using a different color or paint technique to make a focal point in the room. Accent walls add visual interest and enhance the overall aesthetic of the space.
Many people choose to create an accent wall behind the headboard of the bed. An accent wall can be a complementary color or a contrasting color, depending on how dramatic you want the effect to be. The beauty of adding an accent wall to any room is the customization that it offers.
Ensure that the accent wall doesn’t disrupt the visual flow of the room. It should enhance the overall design and create a balance in the space. Professional guidance can help you choose an accent wall look that will create the cozy space you are aiming for.
Textured Paint Features
Another option for an accent wall is using textured paint features. Textured paint can significantly contribute to creating a cozy and inviting space by adding depth, tactile interest, and visual warmth. Textures can range from subtle to dramatic.
To get that cozy feel, consider subtle patterns like stripes, gentle waves, or a gentle stippled effect. These patterns can add dimension without overwhelming the room. You can also opt for soft textures like brushed suede or stucco to create a touchable and inviting surface. These textures are particularly suitable for bedrooms and living rooms.
Textured walls don’t need to be limited to an accent wall, though. You can also decide to have all four walls of the guest room textured. If your goal is to add a lot of interest and depth to create a truly unforgettable space, then this could be a great option for you.
Creating a cozy guest space can be as easy as choosing the right paint color and letting the painters work their magic by using texturizing techniques. A skilled painter can create a custom space that is inviting and visually appealing. When you meet with your painter ask about textures and learn about how they can add a custom touch to your paint project.
