I have always loved our house, not because it is massive, but because it is simple and homey. I grew up in our house with my mom, dad and two siblings. I always remember the times when my dad comes home from work, we have a routine wherein we jump out of whatever we are doing and come rushing, hugging and kissing him and then we eat snacks made by our mom right after. It has always been my favorite part of the day. I always cherish the times that we were together, even if we just watch cartoons or movies in the living room, play scrabble and other board games in the balcony, sharing sumptuous lunch in our dining room, or even if me and my siblings are just doing our home works in our bedroom. We live very simply and I guess that’s what makes me appreciate even the very simple things that happens in my life. Now that me and my siblings have all graduated from college, and are all working and it made us think on what would be the best gift that we can give to our parents? Of course a new house, new car and other new stuff would all sound great but we thought that giving our house a fresh coat of paint would be best. This would be perfect since our parents are very sentimental and would definitely choose to maintain our current house than to move elsewhere even if it is new.
Choosing The Right Color
After announcing the “gift” to the parents, it’s time to choose the color(s) of paint to use. It is important to choose not just for aesthetics. According to webmd
Home decor is often viewed as simply a matter of aesthetics — what looks attractive. But proponents of color psychology believe that the colors you use to decorate your home can have a profound effect on the emotional well-being of you and your family.
After choosing the right color it’s time to paint the house. Though before we continue, just want to highlight one thing that we spent time and discussion, choosing the color of our front door. Yes I am not exaggerating. My mom said that choosing the color of your front door is as important as choosing the right paint for your house. Not just to match it, but it also reflects the personality of who’s living in it. We totally agree with her on that part so we also spent time in choosing the perfect color for our family. According to porch
Your front door is a place to greet visitors, welcome friends and invite outsiders in. A cheerful color can illuminate your front porch and turn a drab setting into a charming spot. Choosing the right color for your front door can be tough, as there are more than plenty of hues and tones to pick from. Different colors represent different meanings, so while some of you may go for bright and bold, others may prefer warm and soft.
Seek Professional Help
We never really considered to do the painting our selves because no one in the family have ever tried even painting a small chair. Aside from that, saving time and money is the major reason why we hired a painting contractor.
According to our parents they really loved the outcome of the project hence they are considering this as the best gift ever. They really loved the idea of keeping our old home and giving it a fresh look made them love it even more. Clinging in to our home makes us look back to beautiful memories, enjoying it in the present and makes us look forward to a more exciting future.I just want to share the website that we have found Neighbourhood Painters which really helped us to turn our dream project into reality.
