Design Dilemmas Inspired by Movie Scenes

Whatever your design dilemma is, there are always solutions

Houses come in all shapes and sizes. Even if you love your floor plan, there are probably things in your house that you wish were different. Maybe you used to love the way your house looked, but have grown tired of it or it’s a little outdated.

If you have a room that’s as small as a pocket, as narrow as a tube or far too large, read on for some tricks that can hide, divide or merely alter the focus in the room.

HOUZZ

Design Dilemma: Room is Too Small

If you have a room where it feels like the walls are closing in like the trash compactor in Star Wars Episode IV, this one’s for you. They really wouldn’t have felt so trapped if they just added some stripes to the walls, created an interesting focal point, or used mirrors. Honestly they were really overreacting about feeling crowded.

Han: I’ve got a very bad feeling about this.
Leia: The walls are moving!

Design Dilemma: No Backyard Privacy

Chuck: Chips? Dip?
But Wilson declines

If the view from your kitchen window looks like a used car lot or you’re just tired of seeing your neighbors tanning on their back deck, let nature help you out.
Grow a privacy barrier and turn your backyard into a secluded oasis for those late night fire pit parties, just like the one Tom Hanks vacationed to in Cast Away.

If you don’t have twelve kids, but your living room still looks like the one from Cheaper by the Dozen, it’s probably time to make some changes. Maybe some purging is in order. Maybe you just need to clear your horizontal surfaces and decrease the number of mismatching throw pillows you own. It’s also a great idea to create a spot for each item to go (and put them in their places every time!). New habits are hard to build, but once you de-clutter to a good baseline, it’s not as hard to keep up with.

Design Dilemma: Too Much Clutter

I guess you could say that when Tom and l left Midland… we had a mess of theories about how to raise children. We still have a mess of children, but no theories.

Design Dilemma: Outdated Decor

If your living room looks like it took style advice from Danny of Full House, you may want to make some simple changes. Even switching a few pieces of furniture for fresh, modern ones can make a big difference in how the room feels. Adding plants always brightens up a space that feels dusty. Bringing in some pops of color if you have a neutral color scheme right now is a fantastic way to bring life into your room.

Michelle: Stop! Dirt bad.
DJ: Oh, no. Dad taught Michelle the Tanner family motto.
Danny: Deej, I’m working on a new Tanner family motto. Don’t make fun of Dad until you can afford your own apartment.

How to Bring Life into a Dull Room

Photo from Country Living

Keep reading for interior design ideas to bring life into a dull room!

Bring Nature Inside

Plants are usually the answer! Not only do they add beauty, texture, and color to a space, they also give off a little oxygen. Further, studies have proven that house plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15%), reduce stress levels, and boost your mood.

Create a Focal Point

Depending on the room, different focal points make the most sense. We love rooms that center around bringing people together. Whether it’s a coffee table your friends play board games on or a kitchen island where your kids eat breakfast together, there’s something powerful about focusing the energy on one main spot in a room.

Add an Accent Wall

You’ll always notice an accent wall when you enter a room. Even if it’s not bright red, just a difference in color from the rest of the walls is enough to add a little life to the space.

Use Pops of Color

It could be as simple as a couple of brilliant blue throw pillows or a deep red picture frame. Simple touches like that really catch the eye and bring the rest of your decor together when done right.

Adjust Your Lighting

Light is synonymous with life, so it makes sense that if your space is well-lit, it will feel more lively. If your lighting is outdated, dull, or sparse you may want to consider adding some attractive lamps or even just changing the type of bulbs you use. Using mirrors also helps spread the light around, especially for spaces that are struggling to bring in lots of natural light.

Paint Your Walls

Of course, this one is our favorite! We talk often about how repainting your walls is such a great way to make your space feel more like home. Lots of our houses these days are painted with outdated colors. Chances are, your walls could use some love.

What Paint Color to Choose Based on Your Home’s Style

It’s important to factor in your home’s style when choosing a paint color. This is one reason we love offering color consultations, so you can rest assured that your paint color choices will fit your home perfectly!

Of course it’s always ok to think outside the box. If your house is a certain style but you love a color that doesn’t necessarily “fit,” that doesn’t mean you have to completely avoid that color. Go against the grain if you want, or even just use that beloved color as an accent on your shutters or front door! We’ll work with you to find some solid middle ground so that your house retains its value while you are satisfied with the end result.

Cape Cod

Traditional Cape Cod style uses a lot of grey-toned pastels and white. These houses tend to stay pretty neutral.

Tudor

Tudor style houses usually have a mix of brick, stucco, and exposed wood beams. Earth tones definitely work best here.

Victorian

These Victorian homes allow for lots of play with color. Multiple colors painted on their exterior accentuate the intricate details of the design, making them more interesting and beautiful.

Mid Century Modern

Mid Century Modern style homes have sleek, modern edges. Color choices for this style range from dark earth tones to bright whites to deep blues. Often to complement the deep main color, home owners will add a pop of a bolder color like red, orange, or bright blue.

Feng Shui Principles for Beginners

You’ve probably heard the term. You might even have an idea of what it means. Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese practice of harmonizing your environment. It’s a system that draws inspiration from nature (which we love!) as a way to find balance in our own homes.

The five elements to balance are: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Each have different qualities and purposes and each compliment each other in such a way that makes your home feel like home.

Image from The Spruce

Earth

Qualities: grounding, self-care, stability

Colors: yellow, brown, orange

Metal

Qualities: efficiency, precision, beauty

Colors: white, metallics

Water

Qualities: shifting, flowing, movement downward

Colors: black

Wood

Qualities: expansiveness, vitality, movement upward

Colors: green, blue

Fire

Qualities: passion, illumination, brilliance

Colors: red

You can probably imagine a room incorporating all of these elements in a way that makes the whole space feel comfortable and pleasing.

Commanding Position in Feng Shui

Another important aspect of Feng Shui design is the commanding position.

According to The Spruce, “The commanding position is one of the fundamental basics in feng shui. It’s important that your bed, desk, and stove are all in command, since each of these items represents a significant aspect of your life. Your bed represents you, your stove represents your wealth and resources, and your desk represents your career and path in life.”

The commanding position is the one in which you can see the door without being directly in line with it. This puts your subconscious at ease knowing that you will see whoever enters the room.

Procoat Painting Will Help Achieve Your Feng Shui Dreams!

As you’ve just read, color is so vital to the way our home looks and feels. Different colors bring on different emotions and energies, which is why we love offering an hour of free color consultation with each of our projects!

Redesigning Your Home Changes How You Feel

Bring Some Life Into Your Space!

In which living room above would you rather sip your morning coffee or snuggle up with a good book after a long day of work? I know my answer.

While there’s nothing exactly wrong with the before photo, the result after redesigning the room feels so much more homey, welcoming, and cozy. A put-together room says a lot about your style and what you value.

Why Redesign Your Home?

No matter how much thought you put into what your home looks like, it does affect how you and your guests feel. Redesigning your home to be as comfortable and pleasant as possible is a way to care for yourself and the people you love. Feeling proud of your space is an avenue to find confidence and joy.

Now of course, we want to avoid “showing off” for the sake of impressing people. What brings true joy is seeing your family and friends comfortably enjoying the home you created.

What if I Have No Time or Energy to Redesign my Home?

It may seem overwhelming to prioritize redesigning, repainting, or even moving furniture around. We all have different battles to face in life, whether that be parenting, heavy work loads, or stressful emotional situations. Breaking the project down into actionable steps is a great place to start if you’re feeling overwhelmed at the idea!

Your home is an expression of YOU, just like your hairstyle and clothing. Sometimes, even when you’re not feeling like yourself, changing your environment helps you relearn how to feel at home in your body and your house.

It feels good to care for your space and make it your own. Redesigning your home, or even just one room, is a great way to bring new energy into your life. It’s so easy for our clutter, outdated paint colors, or mismatched furniture to bog us down. You may not even realize what an effect it has on you until you change it!

Sharing your exciting home design goals with your friends and family is a great way to involve them! Even if they don’t volunteer to help, some of them may feel honored to be asked to help. Then, on top of having a beautiful final result, you’ll have fond memories of completing a project together. Get the kids involved, too!

How Can Procoat Bring New Energy Into Your Home?

We take the time to listen to all of your concerns, desires, and questions before diving into your project. Our estimator makes sure you understand the entire scope of work, our color consultants help you decide which shade is exactly right for the job, and our production manager makes sure our crews understand what you want.

Redesigning your home often starts with a fresh coat of paint, and we’d be honored to help you achieve your vision!

Top Bathroom Paint Color Trends of 2021

Whether you’re going neutral or hoping to spice up your bathroom, there are so many options when choosing your bathroom paint color.

Why Paint Your Bathroom Now?

In 2021, when so many of us have spent the past year and a half staring at our walls, it’s more exciting than ever to choose a new paint color for your bathroom! And why stop there? Might as well give your whole house a facelift while we’re at it. I’m sure you’ve noticed all the scuffs, fading, and clashing colors by now.

So Many Bathroom Paint Color Choices!

You can always stick with the classic: pure white. It brings a light and airy feel to the bathroom and gives it a timeless look.

Blue is a naturally popular choice for bathroom paint colors. It gives a refreshing, clean feel and obviously connects us to water.

Go bold with a bright red, or even just a pop of red on the vanity if the entire room feels too intense. The bathroom should be one of your happy places, and bright colors often bring joy.

If you have a small bathroom, black is surprisingly a great way to make it feel larger. It gives a regal, sophisticated feel.

Southern Living has some great recommendations as mentioned above plus more! In the end, it comes down to what you like best, so even if your bathroom paint color choice isn’t “trending,” all that matters is that you’re satisfied!

Let Procoat Transform Your Bathroom!

Tips for Adding an Accent Wall

A eye-catching pop of color in a room really brings your design together!

While going bold might be some people’s style, an accent wall doesn’t have to be bright yellow. It’s as simple as painting one wall chocolate brown and leaving the others lighter tan.

When Should You Repaint Your House?

How long does a paint job last?

Depending on the surface material, paint type, climate conditions, and techniques used, you’ll need to repaint your house every three to twenty years. Since that’s a pretty huge range, we’ll go into some specifics!

Photo from Wow 1 Day Painting

According to Wow 1-Day Painting, this is how long a paint job lasts for various surfaces:

  • Wood siding – every 3-7 years, or every 4 years if it’s stained
  • Aluminum siding – usually about 5 years
  • Stucco – typically lasts 5-6 years
  • New types of materials – these usually need to be touched up less often; for example, cement fiberboard siding can go 10-15 years before repainting
  • Brick – if it’s not painted, it only needs occasional cleaning; if it’s painted, it can last 15-20 years

While this is a pretty good gauge, always keep an eye out for problem areas on your home in case you encounter damage, rot, or mold. Depending on the extent of it, any of those might require repair and repaint.

How to ensure long-term results when you repaint your house?

For every paint job, it’s advisable to properly prepare the surface by repairing holes, cracks, and peeling paint. You must also address any mold or rot issues.

Since paint will adhere best to a smooth surface, use sandpaper or powerwash to attain a clean finish.

Pay close attention to the weather when planning an exterior project. Your paint job will last the longest if you paint on a very dry, warm day. If you don’t wait long enough after rain, the humidity lingering in the air could be a problem or the surface might not be fully dry.

What are the signs that it’s time to repaint your house?

Though the timeline of when to repaint your house is a good starting point, it won’t always reflect your house’s needs. If your house is in full sun a lot of the year, your paint may fade faster than your neighbor’s tree-covered home. When your paint looks faded, that means it’s not protecting your house as well as it could.

If your house’s paint is starting to chip or peel, that’s a sure sign that it’s time to paint. Gaps in the paint job allow water and sunlight to damage the surface underneath.

Remember that paint is not simply cosmetic maintenance. It protects your home from the elements so that you’ll have less to repair over the years.

Painting a House Yourself vs. Hiring a Pro

So is it cheaper to paint a house yourself? While many home improvement projects are technically cheaper to do yourself, this route does not always give you the highest quality result.

procoat painting van parked in front of large brick and stone house that is being painted. professional painters are on ladders painting high up on the house.

Save Time and Get Better Results with a Professional Painter

Professional painters do this for a living, which means they’re experts in this arena. Unless you’ve also had a lot of experience as a painter, you’ll have to learn as you go. Like any skill, the first or second or even fifth time you try, it won’t be perfect. When choosing between painting a house yourself or hiring a professional painter, you can rest assured that the end result will be flawless when hiring a pro!

What is your time worth?

Hiring a professional painter might look more expensive on paper, but you must also factor in what your time is worth. Between work, kids, pets, social outings, and whatever else you fill your life with, it may just not make sense to paint a house yourself. In addition, professional painters will finish the job in less time than it would take you since they have the practice. Of course, we’re all aware that it takes a minimum of two trips to the home improvement store for every DIY project, so that’s another time-suck. Professionals come prepared with the proper amount of paint, all the equipment necessary, and a crew of talented workers to knock out your project.

No Need to Invest in Tools or Materials

The expenses involved in painting a house yourself actually add up pretty quickly when you consider the costs of the extra tools and materials you might not readily have on hand. From rollers to extension poles to painter’s tape, there’s a pretty hefty list to purchase. It may not be worth it for a one-time project. Hiring a professional painter means they’ll show up with a truck full of everything needed to finish the job properly.

Procoat is Committed to Providing the Highest Value Possible

Our goal is to show you how hiring a us is worth every dime. We value high quality customer service, excellent communication, and quality materials so you have the best experience possible. Painting a house should not be stressful. It should be an exciting transformation of your environment! At Procoat, we use detailed protocols for each aspect of our work.

Color Inspiration from the Art World

Color is Power

Can you think of a work of art that relies heavily on the color blue? Color inspiration from art pieces can be powerful! We talk often about how different colors make us feel because our environment really does have an impact on our emotions. We love how artists use color-filled imagery to evoke a memory, emotion, or feeling.

Take The Bluebell by Emily Brontë for example. She so beautifully portrays images of colorful flowers as well as how nature often reflects the energy of the people it surrounds.

Forest of slender trees with a huge patch of bluebell flowers colored blue and purple covering the forest floor
Forest floor of bluebells

Color Inspiration from Art: THE BLUEBELL by Emily Brontë

The Bluebell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air:
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit’s care.

There is a spell in purple heath
Too wildly, sadly dear;
The violet has a fragrant breath,
But fragrance will not cheer,

The trees are bare, the sun is cold,
And seldom, seldom seen;
The heavens have lost their zone of gold,
And earth her robe of green.

And ice upon the glancing stream
Has cast its sombre shade;
And distant hills and valleys seem
In frozen mist arrayed.

The Bluebell cannot charm me now,
The heath has lost its bloom;
The violets in the glen below,
They yield no sweet perfume.

But, though I mourn the sweet Bluebell,
’Tis better far away;
I know how fast my tears would swell
To see it smile to-day.

For, oh! when chill the sunbeams fall
Adown that dreary sky,
And gild yon dank and darkened wall
With transient brilliancy;

How do I weep, how do I pine
For the time of flowers to come,
And turn me from that fading shine,
To mourn the fields of home!

An artist's rendition of Starry Night by Van Gogh. Blue swirling sky with yellow swirly stars over a landscape of a town
Artist’s rendition of Starry Night

Look, also, at Van Gogh’s Starry Night. According to an analysis on Artble, Van Gogh wrote to his brother about his works. In a the letter, Van Gogh comments: “I should not be surprised if you liked the Starry Night and the Ploughed Fields, there is a greater quiet about them than in the other canvases.

Painting with Blue

Painting with blue can transform a room from dull to serene. The color blue evokes a sense of calm, healing, productivity. Though this is true, blue can also represent sadness. Your home should be the place you feel most safe and comfortable. If changing paint colors to something more calming would enhance that feeling of safety, you should make that choice!

Psychology of Blue

All colors hold some sort of power over us. Either they remind us of a childhood memory, make us feel happy or sad, or maybe make us think of a loved one.

The following are some ways blue holds power in our lives:

  • It’s is many people’s favorite color
  • It feels non-threatening
  • Blue rooms can make people more productive
  • The color can be associated with sadness, depending on the culture

Painting with Blue Against Norms

Most homeowners choose to paint their homes neutral or “safe” colors. While this has some merit, there’s something to be said about branching out to a less common paint color. Blue isn’t even the least common choice out there, anyway. Make a room or a wall pop with a splash of such a beautiful color!

How Paint Can Increase Your Home’s Value for Potential Buyers

A good paint job can absolutely increase your home’s value for potential buyers. “It’s the least expensive investment for the biggest return,” says Jennie Norris, chairwoman of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals and her own Denver-based home staging business, Sensational Homes.

As a matter of fact, we found information from Open Door stating that “painting the interior results in a 107% on the return on investment (ROI), and painting the exterior leads to a 55% ROI, according to a HomeGain 2012 Top DIY Home Improvements for Seller survey.”

Interior Paint

Warm, neutral paint colors can liven up an interior space really effectively. Giving your home a fresh look is a way to assure potential buyers that you’re on top of maintenance. Further, prioritizing kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, and entryways increases your home’s value the most.

“The right kind of paint can make a small room look bigger and a cavernous room look smaller,” says Christina Hoffmann. She is the concept manager of HouseLogic.com, a homeownership and buying resource produced by the National Association of Realtors.

Exterior Paint

Your home’s exterior is your first impression. People make judgements in the first few seconds of meeting someone new. Similarly, they’ll do the same for your house. Show potential buyers the value of your home from their first glance. From landscaping to your exterior paint job, first impressions make a big difference in whether your home brings enough value for potential buyers.

Jennie Norris recommends using the 60-30-10 percentage rule. 60% is the body of the home, like stucco or brick, 30% is the garage doors and trim. The final 10% is the front and shutters, with just a pop of color. So, use no more than three colors for your exterior to increase your home’s value.
