As you paint once in a long while, make sure to make the right choice.
People often do not like to opt for darker shades. Some do not due to their old beliefs of it bringing in bad omen to house, especially black color. Others are too afraid to experiment. Lighter wall colors are our top preferences as we are too used to it and know how it looks. But, in this era of experimentation, should we really keep ourselves away from potential transformation dark wall paints can bring? Why should dark be your new favorite choice in Nepal? For drama it creates.
Dark hue circulates drama, excitement, and energy in the space. As lighter shades have become old-fashioned and dull, it can never spread vibe darker ones do. However, if you are impressed by the idea of it, do not jump into the strongest shade. Choose the right one for you with a calm head.
But, how to choose one?
Simple. Just pick the ones that can mix in with your current décor. You can also choose to redesign the whole room or change the stuff in the room such as curtains, tablecloth, etc. as per the color of your choice. Changing the whole room is capable of creating even more drama. If you think you are ready for this, let’s get started with how to break free from old plain monochromatic shades and add contrast to your environment as well as your life.
If you are up for extreme, go all black with dark colored curtains. You can add deep hued artifacts to put up a show on the walls.
If you are not, combine black with lighter shades. It can surprise you how black can go with any color.
However, these are not the only options for your walls. You can also go with other deeper shades of blue, red, green, and other hues of your choice to make it feel even more luxurious and comfortable in Nepal.
When we plan to paint for the first time, we fear about doing it wrong. If you are a first timer with a similar fear for your walls, fear not. We have got some tips to help you get through your painting project and make your time with wall paints more fun for you in Nepal.
Buy just a single brush (two-and-a-half-inch angle brush with nylon or polyester bristles) of a good quality instead of many. Save money here and invest in some high quality paints.
As soon as you finish painting, wash it up with soap and water to keep it in a good shape. If it hardens up, you are going to have hard time cleaning it up.
Flip a five-gallon bucket, sit, and paint. You’ll save your legs from getting tired.
If you prefer kneeling, strap on some gardening kneepads and get comfortable
Punch holes over inner rim using a nail and a hammer to prevent paint from dripping down the side or pooling in the rim.
Use the daylight to paint and keep the lights on to see the mistakes clearly.
If it is a humid day, turn the AC cooler than usual to help paint dry faster.
Open all the ventilation and save yourself from suffocation and headache paint smell causes.
While painting higher surfaces, attach an extension pole to a roller to avoid doing up and down on ladder.
You either prime properly, or you don’t. Prime it if it is an untouched drywall or plaster, if you are painting latex over oil-based, or if you are painting dark shades over lighter one.
While working on the higher spaces, pour paint into an easy-to-hold container. Balancing paint tray up there usually means waiting for it to fall flat down. You definitely do not want a messy floor.
If you spot some hardened paint clumps after everything has dried, get them off with razor blade or knife. Then, give it a quick dab of paint.

While painting, we often neglect our ceiling – the fifth wall. We fancy up trims and walls, but if you want to grab the attention of buyers or visitors while upping the value of your property, you should paint your ceiling with wall paints into something eye-grabbing. In Nepal, you often see plain white ceilings. If you want to stand out, read on and know why you should get it.
To improve home design
To most of the homeowners, it may be a secondary option, but professionals suggest painting ceiling elevates the beauty of the room. When accentuated, it is one of the effective methods to get an attractive design and change the whole environment of the room.
To make your space look larger
You can enlarge your indoor space visually with black colors. Brighter ceilings are normally used to make the top look higher, but dark color ceiling with white walls are capable of giving an illusion of higher ceilings than they actually are. This combination can balance more saturated colors of decors and furnishings in the room.
To add some drama
To make a bold design statement, you can apply any type of color or materials on the ceiling. Professionals often incorporate high-design concepts to add elegance and drama in the room. Different styles and shades are preferable in different rooms. For instance, in teen rooms, you can add a prominent trim edge on the ceiling. With festive blue shade, you can give it a fresher look. Likewise, by adding extra designs, you can make your other rooms in Nepal look extra.
To add fun and creativity
Put your imagination and creativity to work and add a bright and bold color on the ceilings. It instills fun into the place. You can use single shade for your walls and fun and whimsical ones for your ceilings to complement the walls.
In our society, we do not prefer darker shades much, especially black, be it clothes or wall colors with a belief that it brings in bad omen. We prefer to go with light and vivid ones. But at this time, when we believe in leaving old beliefs behind, choosing off-white paints for walls have various perks. It can transform the whole look of a room in a snap. Do you need more reasons to go with dark shades in Nepal? Here are more:
Why darker shades?
Dark colors are filled with drama, excitement and comforting energy which is released in the room. Nowadays, lighter shades have become dull and old-fashioned and it never releases the vibe darker hues do. If you happen to be interested in applying darker color after reading this, wait. Do not jump into the strongest shade right away.
How to choose the right shade?
While choosing the shade, think about your current decoration and think which color would fit in there. For indulging darker shades in your place, you have two option, either change the color of the whole wall or the things existing in the room such as curtains, table cloths, etc so you can match it with existing shades.
Ready for a change?
Even a smaller shift in hues can make a huge difference. Opting for darker colors means you are ready for a change breaking free from monochromatic color. If you are up for an extreme change, go all black with darker curtains and dark colored art pieces too, if possible. If not, you can combine black with other lighter color.
Other than black, you can also go with deeper ones like deep blue, green, red, gold and other strong shades to make your abode feel more luxurious and comforting.
To save yourself from running to stores over and over again in the middle of your painting projects, make a checklist. It enables you to go the paint dealer nearby and grab everything you need in one go. So, what can be the things basic things a painter need during the project in Nepal?
Before you start painting, you need to estimate how much paint you need. To calculate, you need to know size of the area. So, first take required measurements and take it with you to the store. The store person will calculate right amount of paint you need. A gallon of paint, usually, covers 400 square feet of wall space.
Always opt for high quality paints as they tend to last long as well as are easy to apply. Not just that, such paints are also cost-friendly in the long term. It can cost you a bit more in Nepal but saves you from repainting time to time and sometimes, just a coat of it is enough, which saves time as well.
With high-quality paint, you need high-quality brushes too for similar results. Go with 3 inches wide angled brush to cut corners. Pick one with synthetic bristles, especially, when you are working with water-based paints.
Pick roller covers and roller frames to pick up the pace and paint evenly.
Get painter’s tape to save yourself from accidental paint slip as well as to paint in a straight line – neatly and professionally.
Buy drop cloths or tear old clothes and lay them on the floor to prevent paint from dripping anywhere you do not want it.
These are the basic things you would need for your project. You can grab other things like primers, sponge, etc. as per your need.
