How to Choose The Right Outdoor Paint For Your Home



While summer is winding down and the fall season approaches, many homeowners are already thinking of family gatherings to come. With that being said, many of our customers are thinking of a fresh coat of paint. Though painting on the inside of your home is always a terrific way to change an outdated area, we encourage homeowners to look on the outside. Sometimes learning how to choose the right outdoor paint for your home can be daunting. At TrustBilt Albuquerque, New Mexico we can help. We assist our customers in making the right color selection that fits their custom needs and go well with the area in which they live.

Color Selection Does Not Have to be Confusing

We recommend you do some research before you make a final decision. For instance; think about the color of your home now and what you like and do not like about it. If your home already has a dark exterior, and you desire to lighten it up, plan on using a good primer underneath the paint. If you are selling your home and trying to make it look appealing, we suggest a light color that also makes your home look bigger. Light colors also do better in direct sunlight and in areas where temperatures tend to freeze. Dark colors tend to fade in sunlight and in areas where the temperatures fluctuates. If you are still not sure what colors hold up well with environmental changes, we suggest taking a small drive around your own neighborhood. You will easily be able to see which colors look great after years and which ones look dingy or worn.

Look at the Material of Your Home When Making a Color Selection

It is one thing to like a color and another to make sure that your home can pull it off. If the siding on your home is made of wood, your paint color options are plentiful. On the other hand, stucco tends to have issues unless you use a more muted or subtle tone of paint color, rather than something bold. The trim on your home is always something to take into consideration, as well. Some people prefer more than one trim color. A contrasting trim color seems to be more common. Regardless, we suggest taking your time during the paint color selection so that you will love the color, not just like it or put up with it. One great way to do this is to purchase a few samples of paint color and put them on different sides of your home. Paint looks different in the evening than it does in the morning, so making sure you like the look of the paint all day long, is a good place to start.

At TrustBilt, we make dreams come true!

Have you been perusing through design magazines and online websites that offer good remodeling ideas but fail to be realistic on costs? At TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we have good news for you. We offer affordable remodeling packages for everyone, and we can show you how to transform your space on a budget.

Detail, Detail, Detail

Before you ever begin a remodeling project with a licensed professional, you should pay close attention to details. Whether you want to renovate your current space or just moved into a new home that needs to be adapted to you needs, make sure that you cover all the options when it comes to design. You can expect to pay some money to keep your home updated and comfortable. However, you do not have to break the bank for good design elements or details. No need to go with luxurious design if you are more of a lay back, easy going individual. The most important element that you can incorporate into your new space is your personality. Chances are, you have a pretty good idea what you already want and need to make the space your own.

Stylish Comfort and Affordability

Living rooms are the place where family and friends hang out, so you do not want it to be too stuffy or so plush that no one can relax. You can increase elegance through lighting and molding and keep the room relaxed enough to kick back and read your favorite novel. If you have small children in the home, think about storage spaces for toys and books etc., which can be incorporated into the design without taking up too much of the area. We offer great design ideas that can add elegance and practicality to your living room space while meeting the needs of everyone in the home.

Bathroom Details Should Rank HIGH on Your Remodeling List

Where do you begin each day? Most people will answer, “In the bathroom.” This is all the more of a reason to make sure that you pay attention to details when remodeling or renovating your bath area. Almost every one of our customers desires a space that looks chic and feels luxurious. Marble counters and floors are a beautiful design element that can be affordable and make the bathroom more inviting. Cast iron tubs are coming back as a must have, but regardless, make sure that every element down to the lighting and electrical switches are exactly where you want them to be. Nothing feels more relaxing than a bathroom that is laid out to meet your custom needs, so don’t feel pressured to rush through the process of creating that perfect design.
