Adding Some Spring “Wow” Factor

· No Comments · Home Maintenance

Now that spring is here in Virginia Beach, you may be thinking about sprucing up your house. You’ve seen exterior front doors painted red, yellow or green, but have you considered adding color to a room by painting the interior door? A couple of coats of paint in a cool shade might be just what the space needs.

Natalie Myers a designer at Veneer Designs in Los Angeles says to get the main features in the room addressed first. Then, if something seems to be missing, painting the door is a great idea.

It’s easy, inexpensive and a low-commitment project. If you don’t like how it turns out, you can simply paint it a different color. At Lowe’s Home Improvement stores, they say customers are becoming more confident about using color.

Choose a gloss finish and you’ll need fewer coats. Additionally, it will hold up when you clean it. Since you just need a small amount, invest in a high quality paint.

Before you paint the entire door, test a small area to make sure you like the color. 

This is your “Around the House” tip from the Virginia Beach home inspector.
