Carrie's Construction Tips

Welcome to my blog. I'm Carrie and I would like to share some of the top tips I have learnt about construction and repair work in the home. My passion is for buying old property and carrying out work on them to bring them into the 21st century. I started out doing this a couple of years ago. I used some money I had inherited to buy a wreck of a place and if I am honest, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I was really lucky to find some great contractors who helped me out a lot and taught me lots of very cool things.

When talking about home remodelling, so many things can spring to mind. If you are considering giving your house interiors a fresh coat of paint, one of the important things you'll need to decide on is your paint colours. However, with so many paint colours available on the market, picking the right colours for your home remodelling can be overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you with choosing the right paint colour for your home when doing home renovations:

Your home furnishings: Upholstered furniture, curtains, drapes, rugs and other furnishings impact the appearance of the home interiors in a big way. Hence, it is important to take into consideration the colour of the furnishings in the home before settling on any paint colours. You need to correlate the hue you want with the furnishing already in your house. This will help you design a consistent colour pattern that will greatly add to the beauty of the renovated home. 

The changing demands and colour preferences: As time passes, new colour styles and fashions come up. While doing home renovations, people tend to come to speed with these trends. It is, therefore, important to have the knowledge of the new trends so as to have a wide scope of paint colours to choose from. You don't want to look old-fashioned by ignoring current trends! Taking new styles and trends into account will help you know what colours to go for while you're remodelling your house.

The lighting inside your home: Before choosing paint colours for your home, you should know that paint colour can look very different depending on the quality of lighting. For this reason, you will need to think about your home lighting during the day and in the night-time. For example, dark colour would look cosy and appealing with enough daylighting while it would be claustrophobic with little natural lighting. 

During a home renovation, there are a lot of things you may need to do and achieve. You don't want to finish a paint job then find out that the results are nothing close to what you had wanted. Before choosing what colours of paint you should use, try to figure out how you want each room to look like and then pick a paint colour that brings out the desired effect. Follow the above tips to ensure you achieve the look you want, but also improve the functionality of your home.
