What to do with excess paint?

Painting is full-on capable of modifying the outlook of any room. Plus, it is the easiest and most economical way to do so. Homeowners often experiment with different paint color ideas that personify the culture of Nepal. After all the trial and errors, mixing and matching, you may end up with extra paint. There is a chance it might look like waste but here’s how you can turn this waste into worth.

  1. Think before you discard

Wall paints are not bio-degradable so, if you are discarding it, make sure you do not do it as like normal garbage. Especially with cheap paints color, there is a chance it might contain toxic substances. It adds more problems along with drainage problems as well as poison the soil and water sources in Nepal, where there is enough problem already.

  1. Store for future

Latex paint is usable for up to 10 years if stored properly, and even more if it is oil-based. You need to seal it properly and store it in not too hot or cold temperature, in dry place. You can pick it up any time to freshen up your walls with a fresh coat, especially when the surface is stained and cannot be cleaned up.

Make sure to label the container properly with the date of purchase, approximate remaining quantity, and its color code.

  1. Donate

If there is no place to store, consider donating it to someone who would make good use of it. Donating does not always mean for “good cause type”. Though, it is always a good thing to do. You can give it away to anyone like your friend, family, or neighbors who might be wanting to paint their walls but not doing so due to budget constraint. You can also reach out to local school or people in need.

Why to inspect the house properly before buying?

Buying a house is a big decision and an investment of a lifetime. So, before you seal the deal looking at those wall colors, it is must to make sure you’re investing in the right place. It is, however, hard to see problems for a normal buyer and tell setbacks beneath those walls. We cannot tell how the house has been readied. Maybe it was made to live, maybe to sell making a decent impression, or maybe the casual issues are concealed with a temporary fixture. So, before you give away your hard-earned money, you need to consider these in Nepal.

There are two types of issues: One that can be fixed and another that cannot be.

Therefore, inspect it properly. Do not be swayed by attractive wall paints and vibrant shades. There can be bug infestations and mold infections lying in the corner, ready to bring in trouble. If unchecked, it can cost you so much later to get rid of it, not including the tension it brings along. Identify the use of cheap wall paints from stained, peeled and faded surfaces. If figured beforehand, you can ask the seller to fix it before you buy in Nepal.

Also, if the house is older than a couple of decades, there is a risk of exposure to lead and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through old paints. It is not used anymore due to the threat it posed but if we get exposed to it again, it can have negative effects on brain development in children and serious ailments in pregnant women and many more. To protect yourself from that, you can inquire about it from the previous owner and if yes, you can ask them to repaint it.

Above issues can be fixed with little expenses and are considerable. But some issues can affect the lifespan of the house. There can be faulty plumbing and wiring that can turn out to be a major issue later. Or, the cracks and defect being effectively concealed, especially one caused by a major earthquake. Some house may even have a weak base made for selling purpose. These cannot be fixed and puts you under the risk during the major earthquakes and other possible natural calamities.

It is essential to figure it out and dodge buying such houses. If you are not sure of doing it right yourself, you can bring in a structural engineer to check for structural setbacks.

Why dark color can be the one for your room?

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?

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.

Ceiling: A place not to miss while Painting

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
