The answer does indeed lie in the protective qualities of paint. Exterior paint protects surfaces from abrasion and wear caused by inclement weather, the sun, wind and all other manner of outdoor phenomenon. While paint is applied somewhat liquid, as the vehicle dries it becomes a solid, protective surface. This is equally practical indoors, as the paint helps keep dust and dirt out of the nooks and crannies of your home. Paint is also imbued with waterproofing qualities, which can protect the surfaces in your home from humidity and moisture.
The protective quality of paints aside, adding color to your home is another amazing reason to get a new coat of paint. The colours of your home reflect your personality and style, and you can create amazing themes and feelings by using the right paints. Paints are being developed with fewer toxic and hazardous materials; healthier and more environmentally friendly, these paints are designed with a new, health-conscious demographic in mind.
The effects of color on psychology and physiology are unknown, but there’s some evidence that color can affect us in profound ways. A specific band of blue light can be used to eliminate bilirubin in the blood; this blue light phototherapy can cure babies of jaundice. Pink rooms have been shown to calm down juvenile detainees; there is not a lot of research on the topic, but many who operate prisons swear by it’s efficacy.
Colors being used to calm inmates and save babies lives might not imply too much, but there’s a more immediate way of understanding the power of color in your home; think about how it makes you feel. Your favorite color might uplift you, or it might soothe you; you might feel happy whenever you see yellow, and you might mellow out when you see blue. Remember how colours affect you, and use them appropriately in your home to affect your own mood.
Painting can also increase the resale value of your house; it can be used to cover blemishes and add flair to your home, making it more appealing to potential buyers. Experienced painters can help you pick up on the trends of the day to maximize your home’s value, and they can create a cohesive color scheme so all of the rooms of your home, it’s exterior, the doors and all the trim create an unforgettable experience.
