Painting Tips: How to Choose the Right Colours for Your Office

Painting Tips: How to Choose the Right Colours for Your Office

The space that you work in can have a profound effect on your mood as well as your productivity levels. If you are a company owner or if your company encourages you to add your own personality to your office space, then it’s a good idea to spend some time thinking about choosing the right colours for your office. Here are our painting tips: Consider Your Industry and Work Tasks If you are a graphic designer or musician, you may want your work space to inspire creativity and get you energised. If you work as an accountant or do a job that requires a lot of concentration over extended periods of time, you may want to opt for a modern, sleek look that can enable deep thinking without distractions. Besides considering the type of work that you want to complete in your office, also think about what you want clients and guests to feel when they enter your space. If you work in a more traditional industry such as the banking sector, you may want to stick to hues of white and grey with only a few bright accents. Calming colours are green while upbeat colours are usually reds. So, experiment with different combinations to get the right ambience that you are aiming for. Need acrylic paint?

Choosing Colours and Paint Types for Your Master Bedroom

Choosing Colours and Paint Types for Your Master Bedroom

Interior house paint comes in literally any colour, type and finish. The colour you choose for your master bedroom, however, has to be carefully thought through. Here are a few tips to guide you through the process:   How Do You Want To Feel In Your Master Bedroom?   Some people want to feel energised and upbeat when they enter their bedroom, while others want to feel calm and docile. You may prefer a light and breezy atmosphere as opposed to a dark and cosy environment.   Most people prefer a relaxing atmosphere for their master bedroom. Remember that even if you choose a neutral shade, you can always spruce up the environment with vibrant throw pillows, lamp shades and other decor items.   Do You Want One Colour Or Multiple Hues?   You don’t have to stick to a single colour in your master bedroom. If you want a red room, for example, you can complement the warm tones with shades of yellow and orange. A green room can similarly be complimented with beiges and gold. You could also consider high-sheen paint or a stencil pattern on your ceiling to add more character to the space.   Finish Types   The interior paint finishes to choose from include flat, eggshell, semi-gloss and high-gloss. While eggshell has a subtle finish, it doesn’t draw attention to imperfections, which makes it ideal for interior paint jobs. Gloss finishes are generally used on trims but they can also be used with certain colours to great effect. Be mindful of the fact that the higher gloss paints highlight imperfections and they also take longer to dry. Need help to choose a paint colour? Then get in touch with Warrior Paints...

How to Prepare Your Home’s Exterior for Painting

So, you’ve spent money on buying quality exterior house paint. How do you now make sure that it stands the test of time? Below, we provide you with some expert painting tips for getting the best possible bang for your buck when it comes to painting your home’s exterior. Wash the Walls  Dust and dirt can result in the exterior house paint not adhering as well as it should, meaning that you’ll have to repaint the walls a lot sooner than you had probably hoped to. Giving the walls a quick wash with a bit of water will help to avoid this. If you can get your hands on a pressure-washer, even better. Scrape, Scrape, Scrape  Using a paint scraper, get rid of any flaking paint once the walls have dried properly. This will make sure that you have a smoother surface to work with. Fill in the Cracks  Another hindrance in terms of getting a smooth surface, is cracks in the wall. Smooth these out with the help of some quality caulk and you’ll be good to go. Landscape  If there are any overhanging plants or branches, or any ivy growing on the walls themselves, make sure that you remove them before you get started. Apply Primer  Primer will help to make sure that your exterior house paint lasts for as long as possible. It’s definitely well worth the additional spend, saving you plenty of money in the long run.

Create A Soothing Bathroom with These Design Tips

Create A Soothing Bathroom with These Design Tips

Are you looking for design and painting tips for your bathroom? Do you want to create a soothing paradise reminiscent of a 5-star health spa? You’ve come to the right place. Here are our pointers for getting it right: Choose the Right Colour Scheme  The acrylic paint that you decide to use will have a massive impact on the overall vibe of your bathroom, so choose wisely! Pastels and neutral colours work best in most bathrooms, however, earthy tones, such as a ‘mish-mash’ of different brown hues, also looks absolutely stunning. Ultimately, as with all house painting, it all comes down to personal preference. Rely on Natural Accents  Natural accents can breathe life into any bathroom. It’s the little things that really make all the difference, such as a bamboo bath mat, a large green plant for the corner and, of course, natural wooden blinds. Add Some Artwork  A tranquil painting or two can help to ensure that your bathroom feels a lot more soothing. Still-life artwork, as well as images of gorgeous, green landscapes, are all great choices to consider. Use Fresh Flowers  The trend these days is to use fake flowers in bathrooms because they last longer. However, they don’t have quite the same effect as fresh flowers do! Therefore, when you can, do your best to keep that vase filled with beautiful flora – you’ll be very glad that you did. Not only does it look glorious, but the smell is sure to help lift your spirits, too. At Warrior Paints, we specialise in more than just painting tips – we can satisfy all your house painting requirements! For the best acrylic paint in town, contact us...
