Paint is an essential component of every home decor.  It  is an inexpensive way to creatively decorate and transform any room of your home. Whether its interior painting or exterior it’s a quick and easy alternative to making an impact to any room in your house.  Whether you are selling your home and need to stage it for the new home buyers, or you are moving in to your new home, condo, loft, apartment or home-office space PG Paint & Design – Ottawa House Painters can help you every step of the way.

You can make any room look bigger, cooler or warmer and cozier just by choosing the paint colours.  It’s not an easy task that is for sure.  We provide you assistance in going through the colour paint chip books and you can also go online to the Benjamin Moore Website colour collections .  If you have any questions we can guide you through the colors, help you choose what your desired look is and then we go through it together with you before we purchase the paint.  We want you to be sure of your choices and comfortable before you make that final decision.  Anyone can pick a paint colour, but it’s not always easy to tell off a small paint chip samples.  This is why we at PG Paint & Design – your Ottawa House Painters, will often suggest that you look at your colour choices in variety of lighting situations.  Some colours may look darker in low lighting while they may not look dark enough in bright sunlight or under bright lighting.

Choosing Paint Colors requires some knowledge of colors, tones and how shades affect a space and after 30 years of experience in the painting industry in the Ottawa area, we can guarantee you our guidance and expertise.  Of course the final decision is yours to make, as you are the homeowner and are the one who has to live with the colour(s) each day, therefore our suggestions are merely a way of guiding, and then you finalize the choice. Your personal taste is a major part of your home painting project.

Prior to selecting colors, it is important to examine the size, shape, contents, and function of the rooms to be painted.  Painting a new colour can compliment any room by working with the existing space and its features. The colour(s), shade and tone of the chosen paint colour will create an atmosphere in the room.  Whether it’s is a lighter colour giving the sense of space, a darker color giving you a cozier, warmer feel, or even an accent/focal wall, which is one wall is painted darker and the other three are in a lighter shade/tone of the same paint colour chosen.

Why not get more creative? Don’t hesitate to experiment with your interior painting ideas. Unique, custom paint jobs are quite popular and can really make a room outstanding. Here are a couple of creative ideas you may want to reflect on:

Accent Walls: they can actually compliment your other three walls by covering a fourth wall with a bolder, contrasting shade.

Unusual Surfaces:  Why not paint your floors, ceilings,  cabinets, or wood paneling? It’s interesting to turn these overlooked areas into unique central focal points.

Whether luxurious or simplistic, modern or classic,  your home is your go to place after a long day, and your walls are our canvass to showcase our expert painting skills.

Well it’s a sunny and hot gorgeous September afternoon temp is 26 feeling more like 32.  Who’d have thought that Ottawa would see another heat wave from just a couple of weeks ago when temperatures were down to the zero mark and even minus by night fall.

Today, we got a lot of things done, Our blog update for one 🙂  hopefully we can engage friends and visitors .  But the best part of my day today… was following our Italian tradition of making homemade sausages.  Made quite a batch of those and homemade italian salami, it’s my passtime passion when i’m not painting.  Must remember to take a picture next time of course too share with everyone.

As we get close to signing off to the end of September, we just wanted to remind you that it’s still great weather and temperature out there if you have Exterior Painting in the Ottawa Area to be done.  The warm temperatures have contributed to keeping the wood dry and the paint application easier.  If the weather keeps up we can still paint till end of October and hopefully onto mid November as in previous years.

Thanks for stopping by, this is only our 2nd blog Post for Painting in Ottawa.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate our way into getting into the habit of blogging.  Promise some pictures next time 🙂

Enjoy the gorgeous fall weekend Ottawa
