Interior Painting Facts & Myths in Bridgehampton, NY

Many folks will solicit advice from co-workers, family, and friends when to comes to the interior painting project in your home.  Blindly accepting myths as truths can be risky though getting free advice is never a bad thing. You can actually negatively impact the outcome with what most people mean well with what they believe to be sound advice.  We at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. would like to take the opportunity to dispel some of the commonly heard myths in an effort to help you with your interior painting project. 

Myth:  Your home will be brighter using white color for the interior.

The potential brighter effect is possible where whites in fact reflect light.  It will make the room lack the feeling of warmth and welcoming, as white is too institutional and selecting the use for every room in the home without any contrasting or complementing colors for the trim, flooring, accent piece, etc.   Stick to the light and pale palettes to achieve the light-factor without sacrificing the homey effect if you want to enhance the brighter effect in your home.

Myth:  By only painting one wall after repairing damage, you can cause a color mismatch. 

After the kids decided to take tumbling to indoor applications, perhaps you have come to notice bubbling paint on one of the bathroom walls, or drywall need to be repaired in the hallway. You will want to make the needed repairs and repaint the wall, obviously.  Too many people believe that the fresh paint will not match the surrounding walls. Even if you do not have enough, you can present the color paint to get more to paint the damaged wall, most typically keep their leftover paint for touchups.  Once it is dried and the surrounding walls are wiped clean of dust and spots, it will be perfectly matched again, the fresher paint won’t match up.  You can still get the paint originally used even if you got your paint with a professional.

 Myth:  You can use a low-quality paint before listing to make your home look great to potential buyers.  

You want it to look good to the buyers when you plan on selling your home, which generally indicates a slight face-lift here, and a fresh coat of paint there.  Many sellers are encouraged to slap a coat of low-quality paint on the walls in an effort to save on cost.  Where other potential buyers still opt to invest in one before buying so they know what to expect from a new home, in some states the banks require a home inspector. The home inspectors are trained and experienced to notice the quality of paint used on the walls in any case. Ultimately giving the buyer leverage to drop your asking price, some may simply note the low-quality paint, others may clarify the cost of repainting with a high-quality paint. Professionally done will ensure it is executed with precision, coverage, and smooth results, either ensure the walls are cleaned and touched up or invest in a high-quality painting service if the walls need some TLC.
