I get asked all the time about whether the color green is the best for a new home. My answer depends on the owner and the project. The color green is very versatile and easy to work with. However, it does have a tendency to be a little too warm, so I prefer to paint my new home in warm colors.
While green is a popular color for new homes, it’s not a color that’s easy to find in most new home supply stores. To paint a new home in a color that’s easy to find, I would typically recommend painting the whole floor in warm colors. Painting the walls in warm tones, then painting the ceiling in warm tones, and then painting all of the doors in warm tones gives you a lot of flexibility in the color scheme.
The other suggestion, which I haven’t seen mentioned, is painting your interior doors with a warm color, so that it contrasts with the rest of the room’s decor.
The floor is another thing that can have a big impact on your new construction home. The flooring is the most visible thing in your home when it’s just the two of you, and can show the biggest contrast with the rest of the building. This is especially true if you’re painting the entire interior floor, since the only way to tell if youve painted it in a warm or cool color is to look at the different tones.
Painting your floors is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make when building your new home. It will probably be the most dramatic and noticeable thing you do, so a little thought and preparation go a long way.
I’ve been painting my floors for years. I never really had any idea how much damage I was doing to them until I started painting my current house. So before I start I like to go over my floor with a fine-tooth comb. I look for any sign that it “needs to be updated” or “looks bad” as well as any areas that could use a “fresh coat” because I bet those things are going to look even worse after a few coats.
I always think of it as a kind of paint run, which is what it feels like. I dont really like the term paint run because that is really just paint on paint. I would be more interested in a term like paint-on-paint. It really is a process that involves many coats of paint, the most important being an application that dries very, very quickly. You could have a very long run but it wouldn’t really be a paint run.
