If you’ve ever moved into a new house, one of the first things you want to do is have your home reflect your own personal style.  Ideally as a new property owner, you will have access to the house before you move in so you can paint it all prior to the furntiure arriving. It’s hard to tell which colors go with what and if you are not an interior designer, it could make sense to contact a designer or a painting company and see if you can get a color consultation.

Make sure to establish up front if you can get a free consultation or if you have to pay for their time. If you have a friend than can make a recommendation on a designer, go with that. It’s always best to get a first hand account of someone skills then going blindly into the phone book and picking the first person that comes along.

If you decide on your colors, you then need to determine what type of paint is best for your walls, ceiling and trim. Some people like to use oil based paints for their look and sheen, but be careful, oil based paints can take days to cure and will leave the area smelling very strongly for a while. Most people choose water or latex based paints as they don’t smell as bad as oil and you can often get a very similar and professional look for your place.

If you decide to do it yourself, make sure you have all the proper equipment, brushes, rollers, ladders and a sprayer would be great if you could get your hands on one. Alternatively you can find a contractor to take care of it, that might be your best bet if you’re working a 9-5 job and have very little time left over for home improvement projects.
