Painting in Neutral Paint Colours

Choosing neutral paint colours for any interior house painting can be overwhelming.  With so many variations available to choose from with brown, blue, green and gray undertones, also referred to as greige.  Painting in neutral no longer means the simple beige or off white paint colours.

Choosing Neutral Paint Colours

When choosing from the neutral paint colour palette consider the mood and ambiance you are looking to create.

Take for example the living and dining rooms that are usually open space concepts.  You will want to pick a colour that will feel perfect and that creates a cozy home feeling.

paint colours and the why behind we choose them

Over the years we have seen neutrals that range from popular whites, to browns, grays, blues and greens.

Every room has a purpose and a function and choosing dark or light shade of any colour can add the drama or the pop to your home decor.

Painting to Sell

If you are planning on listing your home or condo in the real estate market, consider painting before you sell as a valuable and affordable way to upgrade before it hits the market.

Neutrals bring balance and soothing energy to any home decor.  It is known fact that when you paint in a neutral palette for the purpose of selling, it helps increase the market resale value and will help sell it  faster.

I would recommend PG Paint & Design to anyone. This was the 2nd time I’ve hired Pino. I was preparing my home for sale and it needed the basement painted and various touch-ups throughout. Pino did an excellent job, on time and within budget. He even made suggestions on how I could improve the appearance of my home for resale. My home conditionally sold within 48 hours of being listed. I feel that Pino’s work was one of the reasons this happened. I will be hiring Pino again when it comes time to paint my new condo. It is always a pleasure working with Pino.

For a homeowner it provides the comfort and relaxing feeling of it being your space, and allows you to bring forward your personality and character with the shade and tone you choose for the walls and by adding accessories like lamps, dark furniture, mirrors and rugs, window treatments to your home decor puts your personalized signature to every room.

The advantage to a potential home buyer is that it neutralizes everything and provides a more flexible view to envisioning themselves living in this home.

A move in to do list is an easy way to figure out everything that needs to get done before moving and looking for a refresh in your home decor painting in neutral paint colours is not longer having to be boring.
