Transform your home with paint
(NC) – With winter quickly approaching and more time being spent inside the comforts of the home entertaining, spending time with family or simply recovering from the busy summer, there is no better time to freshen up the interior of your home with a new coat of paint.
Painting is an easy, inexpensive way to breathe new life into your home and to give your home new curb appeal without having to make any additional decorative or reconstructive changes.
Get prepared with the right supplies – Avoid making any last-minute runs to the store and ensure you have everything for a great paint job by working with the following checklist of painting essentials from Canadian Tire:
-- Masking tape
-- Drop cloths
-- Paint tray
-- Paint brushes, rollers and roller cage
-- Paint extension pole
-- Step ladder
Choosing a colour – There are many things to consider when choosing what colour will best suit the rooms and décor in your home. Start by considering the colour of your furnishings and how much light the room gets during the day – both will determine how the paint appears in the room. Room size and use are also important when deciding – light colours will make the room appear larger and more relaxing, while darker colours can make a room seem smaller and more intimate.
Have a favourite colour you want on the wall? A paint match system can match the colour of any item, fabric, piece of clothing, etc. to bring your favourite hue to life on your walls.
Getting the right amount – A paint calculator will help determine how much paint you need for each room in your home.
