Colour tips for the festive season
A good painting job can add a new dimension to your home. Undertaking simple precautions and procedures can ensure that your walls remain like new for a longer time.
To add the sparkle and shine to you homes this Diwali, you can pick any of the following colors:
Bedroom: A tint bright fuchsia pink with a combination of dusky violet will add the warmth to a bedroom. The shades pink and violet brings higher level of thought, even into the spiritual realms.
Living Room: The gateway to an abode is the place which creates the feel of an instant welcome. A luminous orange or a right shade of yellow adds to the hallway to really enhance and uplift the space. The glowing quality of the shades helps capturing our attention and adds to the existing tenderness.
Kitchen: Kitchen being the most used place in a house can be painted in shades of blue, green, red, yellow, and every imaginable colour - plus soothing neutrals and whites as there are lot of opportunities in a kitchen to add a punch of different shades. Blue resembles cool and refreshment, while Green denotes relaxation and reassured. White creates the feeling of airy and clean, using a grayed-down version of a paint color you like will make it pretty and unusual, and you won’t get tired of it.
Bathroom: Natural and neutral shades with undertone of grey create the perfect look of sophistication. Shades of blue like the “ocean cruise” (a tropical pastel blue) is also highly recommended for the bathroom as blue emphasises the bath as the room of relaxation and retreat.
* Most wall paints are washable and can be periodically cleaned with mild soap water solution. For distempered walls, minimum pressure should be applied while cleaning. Cleaning can be done at least two weeks after application of finished coat of paint for removing the dust collected on the surface of the wall.
* Never use water for spot cleaning unless the wall is completely free from extraneous dust.
* In case of severe staining clean the walls immediately before the stain dries up.
