The Most Effective Decorating Tool (You Probably Forgot)

Rachel Williams

What’s the most effective decorating tool most people tend to forget? This holiday season it isn’t the Christmas lights, carved pumpkins or fall wreaths that we’re thinking of – it’s a paintbrush. One of the most effective decorating tactics homeowners tend to forget when the holidays roll around is the power of a fresh coat of paint.


While expensive renovations and big furniture purchases can certainly make a difference, for the homeowner on a budget, big-ticket items like these aren’t usually an option. So what’s a trendy homeowner to do?


With the holidays right around the corner, a simple paint job just might do the trick.


What should you paint? If it’s been at least five years since your last house painter left, you might want to consider interior and exterior painting for the entire house. If you’ve done a little painting along the way or don’t have the budget for a full repaint, there are a few ways to freshen up your home without breaking the budget.


When it comes to exterior painting, repainting the trim of your home is a great way to add some fresh color and protection from the outside elements.


If your walls are looking a little faded and scuffed, just stick to repainting high traffic areas in your home like hallways.


Lacking a little color? If your home isn’t quite ready for a repaint but you’re looking for a fresh look, try adding a few accent walls (or changing the colors of your current ones). Accent walls are the perfect way to add fresh color at home, without a big commitment.


Spruce Up Your Home This Season

Whether you’ve been meaning to repaint for a while or are simply looking for some fresh hues to brighten up your home for the season, there are a wide assortment of fall colors designed to work with your home.

Fall colors like reds, oranges and yellows are not only reminiscence of falling leaves, they’re perfect for those high traffic areas at home. If you’re having a hard time keeping dirt off the walls, these colors mask dirt and grime better than cooler hues like blue, green or white. Check out our color guide for more inspiration and insight into color psychology!
