Painting Makes Perfect

Did you know…when emphasizing a room’s best feature or playing down the flaws, paint has remodeling power!

Every home suffers a few negatives, but not every solution requirespricey structural changes. Paint is an often-overlooked, low-cost remodeler’s remedy for common complaints with interiors, offering the chameleon-like ability to lighten, warm, enlarge, erase, or attract attention.

“Paint is a powerful tool that can enhance the architectural character and intent of space,” says Minneapolis architect Petra Schwartze of TEA2 Architects. “As you choose your paint, think about what the experPaintience in the room should be.”

  • Make a room seem bigger by using whites, pastels, and light colors.
  • Highlight interesting features of a room — fireplace, molding — with different colors.
