Now that summer is over, find your to-do list and consider how new house paint can help you end the year on a colourful note. Fall is the perfect time to hire Surrey house painters, like Blue Chip Painting, to attend to those neglected interior painting jobs. For home owners, Blue Chip Painting is a great choice because of their experience and painting guarantee.
House Painting to Beat the Fall and Winter Blues
The Lower Mainland receives about 166 days of rain per year — sometimes for a week or more at a time! That’s a lot of dark days that can dampen the spirits of even the most cheerful of personalities. While Vitamin D can help, so can new interior paint for your Surrey home. Consider the value of lightening up the interior when it’s dark and dreary outside. White and off-white as a main colour for walls and ceilings will reflect a lot of ambient light; touches of warm colour can bring a little summer energy indoors in the fall and winter; green evokes thoughts of growth and renewal (a little springtime indoors); and, red and orange in touches or accents can increase energy and stimulate the senses.
While some Surrey, BC house painters will try to talk you out of bold colour choices, Jeremy at Blue Chip Painting will work with your choices and help you understand how vibrant colour — done correctly in the right proportions — can breathe new life into dull interiors.
