Make a statement with your staircase: It can feel daunting to paint an entire room, especially if you want to do it yourself. Instead, look for small projects that make a significant impact, such as painting your stair risers. Whether you want to add an unexpected pop of colour or take a tonal approach by alternating between shades of grey like Feather Gray 2127-60 and Pike’s Peak Gray 2127-50, Advance interior paint delivers a durable, furniture-like finish on wood surfaces so that you can achieve professional results in a weekend.
Welcome with vibrant doors: Painting your front door is an easy way to boost your home’s curb appeal, but who says you can’t make an immediate impact by painting your interior doors?
“If you lean towards a neutral palette, painting a door in an energizing hue like Marblehead Gold HC-11 can help you incorporate a splash of colour into your home without committing to an entire wall,” explains Grech. If you’re hesitant to introduce a vibrant colour, she suggests Palladian Blue HC-144 for a subtle facelift.
