Home Painting & Decorating – How to Bring a Fresh Look To Your Interior

Boldly colored kitchen

A fresh look to your interiors can do wonders for the atmosphere of your home. Whether it’s a new living room, kitchen, or bedroom that you’re looking for, there are ways to refresh and rejuvenate the look of any space. Here are some tips on how to bring a new look to your rooms.

What you need to know about color

When it comes to painting, color is the most important part of the process. Take some time to think about what colors will best represent the mood and atmosphere you want to create.

What is most important when selecting color is that you have a long-term vision in mind. Take into consideration how your chosen colors will look in a few months or years from now. You don’t want to choose an orange wall color only for you to get bored by it, and it to look outdated six months later. Consider trends and textures to create a more timeless look.

How to pick an accent color

One of the best ways to give your home a fresh new look is with an accent color. This can be something bold or subtle, depending on what you’re looking for. A fresh look doesn’t have to mean a complete renovation. You can add an accent color in one room or in every room of your house.

When picking out your accent color, there are a few things you should take into consideration:

  • What is the overall mood that you want? Different types of colors evoke different emotions. If you want to create warmth and happiness, use shades of yellow and orange. If you want elegance and sophistication, use blue and grayscale shades. And if you want a lively look, use electric blues and greens.
  • What type of furniture do you have? Certain colors complement certain pieces better than others so it’s important to know what type of furniture you have before deciding on your accent color. For example, reds work well with deep browns because they’re both warm colors.
  • What does the rest of your home look like? No matter how much we try to plan our decorating schemes ahead of time, sometimes life throws us curveballs – like moving into a new place without knowing what it looks like inside! When this happens, just pick the best possible color for your space without worrying about whether it matches other rooms or not (at least until you’ve moved everything in).

The best time of day to decorate your space 

The best time of day to decorate your space is when it has the most natural light in it. That can depend on which side of the world the room looks at, but try to look at the paint you want to use when it is the brightest in the room. Additionally, paint swatches on different walls, and look at the color in the morning, noon, and night, to get the most sense of what the color will look like overall. The color may reflect the light differently when it is exposed to direct sunlight, or in a darker part of the room, and you may be surprised how different light can make a color look.


There are many ways you can freshen up a room in your home. Some of the most common ways are adding a fresh coat of paint and rearranging furniture. However, you may want to consider other options such as adding new carpeting, curtains, or pillows. It is also important to pick a color scheme that will work well with the rest of your home.
