If you are looking to completely transform your space no need to call the contractor, you can change a room for a lot less hassle and money.  All you need is some paint and a little imagination to create a completely new look. Here are a few tips on ways to add color to your space: Add patterns to your walls with stripes or stencils. You can get the look of wallpaper without the mess and cost. Update kitchen cabinets with a fresh coat of paint and updated knobs and pulls. Restore old wood paneling by painting it a neutral color. This will give it a fresh, clean and modern look. Transform dark spaces by painting the walls in light and bright colors. Colors with a high light reflectance value work best in dark room like in the basement. Create an accent wall. This will create a bold statement in a room. Use the 60-30-10 color rule: 60% in the dominant color, 30% from a different color family and 10% in an accent color. You can paint anything. Try painting accessories in bright colors too. Side chairs, tables, frames and more make great places for a pop of color.
