People often ask what they should do first when painting a room, and I always recommend that the wall color be prepped before any other aspect. This way, you will know if your paint job will look good or not based on just one coat! The best time for me as far as preparing goes would have been two weeks ago- after sanding down all those rough patches from furniture passing through during installers' prep days. However, it's never too late because some dust can still get stuck under there, so make sure everything gets swept up beforehand, whether it's latex type oils (like ourselves here at determine) which dry quickly water-based ones requiring more care.
What do you feel first when walking into a room? Emotions, right. It's impossible to paint if your heart isn't in it! So before anything else even starts on that wall or floor - make sure there are no hard feelings nearby by cleansing the space with love (and maybe some coffee). Do colors make your heart skip a beat or raise the temperature in this room just by their mention alone, whether it be shades of blue that bring happiness upon themselves through relaxation time at home on Friday afternoons; rich burgundy wine spilled across a screened porch swing while summer sunsets light up what seems like forever before us--or maybe gray-blue skies dotted with fluffy white clouds looking as though they're ready to burst open any minute now because we know winter will come again soon enough even though spring has yet arrived here where I live (and sometimes seem purposely placed)?
This question is often deemed challenging to answer, but its truth lies in what you are trying to achieve with your paint color choices. Suppose a room needs an overall tone that will work for all pieces and areas within its space (such as bringing out certain features). Choosing colors based on their functionality may be more appropriate than picking one specific hue or several shades from different families. This approach can serve many purposes at once—and save time too!
It's often a toss-up between the walls and furniture. You can't paint all of it at once, though! When painting your living room or dining area, consider what is most essential for you: do plain beiges sound dull? Would vibrant colors make this space more inviting than before (and isn't that why we started painting in earnest)?
