The monsoon season can end up being a little gloomy with the constant rains and no sunshine. To beat the blues, you can give your home a mini makeover and take up repainting the house as a DIY project. Not only will it be a fun bonding activity to do with your family, your walls will get a much needed refreshing change. Before you begin, however, make sure that you waterproof your walls. There are several long term benefits of waterproofing:
- It protects walls by preventing any water damage that occurs over time
- It prevents mold and mildew and subsequently the health problems that arise from it
- It keeps the walls looking fresh by preserving the paint
Waterproofing can be done in various rooms of the house whether it is basement waterproofing or a bedroom. It is crucial that you don’t skip on this important process or skimp on it as it is a one time investment. Once you get your walls waterproofed you can begin to select some colors for your home. Let’s take a look at the trending paint colors this monsoon season.
Choosing paint colors for your home can get quite confusing with the plethora of options available in the market. A good way to make your choice is by picking the colors that resonate with you the most. If you prefer soothing and warm aesthetics then you should opt for the trusty neutrals such as beige, brown, dull greens and grays. These colors reflect the spirit of monsoon and are evergreen, suiting all the other seasons as well. Muted paint tones allow space for statement decor pieces. For example, if you have a muted gray wall in your kitchen, you can easily bring in some artsy light fixture to add an extra layer of dimension to the room. Another great thing about these colors is that they are easy to pair things with, so you won’t have a hard time deciding upon what kind of decor you want or what kind of art you can hang on your walls. These room color combinations will leave your house looking timeless and classic.
If your style leans more towards making a statement and having ‘forget me not’ decor, you can choose bold and bright hues such as pinks, corals, pale yellows and oranges. There is a huge variety of bold colors that you can choose from that will make a statement and lend that extra oomph to your decor as well. You can also use bold paint colors to draw attention to a particular wall that holds statement art or a bookshelf. Texture paint, wallpaper, color blocking are all concepts that can be applied in various parts of the house for an elevated look or simply just for a pop of color.
These statement colors not only make a lasting impression but they also require less done up decor around the house. Since one or two walls add that bright colorful aura to the house, this leaves room for a more minimalist decor style that can be used in and around the house. Color combinations such as deep purple with lavender accents, indigo blue with mustard yellow and leafy green with muted coral are all the rage these days. Paint is a great way to spruce up your house for a fraction of the cost. With bold paint colors, you can easily keep the decor items to a minimum and incorporate neutral shades into cushion covers and curtains to create a balance.
These days, there are thousands of options available along with customers being able to customize paint colors to their preferences. You will definitely find something that will suit your style and make your house stand apart from the rest as there is something for everyone.
