Painting Tips with Heather Scott Home & Design


Heather Blue-Harkovich of Heather Scott Home & Design shared expert advice for painting your home. Paint is usually one of the first things that people change when buying a new home. When you are choosing paint color, choose your design scheme first.Why is Paint Important

  • Paint is usually one of the first things people change when they buy a home, redecorate or think about putting their house on the market.
  • Paint should generally be redone about every 7-10 years.  Times change and color schemes can become ‘dated’.
  • Paint is a very affordable way to update to your home.

Understand the finish choices

  • Usually chose flat or eggshell for your main walls
  • Eggshell or Satin if you have children and pets
  • Satin in wet areas like kitchens and baths
  • Semigloss on trim and cabinets
  • Flat on ceiling

 Don’t forget the ceiling!

  • A neutral white is the best choice.  Will make the ceiling feel higher
  • Pale blue is also nice
  • Consider a bold color as a design element when you want to save (see girl’s room samples)
  • Don’t use a color if you have low ceilings
  • It might also be time to repaint your doors and trim
