Applying Paint Finishes And Paint Colors

Just to the right paint finishes and paint colors

Mississauga handyman painting and carpentry just finished off a kids bedroom where the kid chose the paint finishes and  paint colors. What a novel idea. This home had 2 children they were very young around 3 or 4 years old. The parents both tried to please and satisfy their children by painting the room the colors they chose. Besides this was going to be their playroom when they wake up and before you go to sleep. There's nothing nicer than to look at your favorite color while you're in the room playing.

Bedroom paint colors

Amazingly enough these kids pick colors that complemented each other and worked well with each other.Here is something intesting,

What colors match with yellow?


Colors that match with yellow include orange, red, green, blue and purple, depending on the shade of yellow and how it is being used. Basic color harmonies, such as analogous or complementary colors, can be determined using a color wheel. A combination of both warm and cool colors, as well as a balance of dynamic and subtle harmonies are often a good choice and help to differentiate lightness while increasing contrast.



  • What do you get when you mix purple and green?


  • What colors match with purple?


  • What color is produced when you mix purple and orange?



There are different harmonies that are used on the color wheel to determine the best color matches. One type of harmony is called analogous, in which the three colors that are side by side on the color wheel are selected. For yellow, this would be yellow, orange and green.

Another type of harmony is called a complementary harmony, which is when the two colors that are directly opposite of one another on the color wheel are selected. For yellow, this would be yellow and purple. A split complementary harmony is also an option, and is when the three colors that are chosen are equidistant from one another, forming an equilateral triangle. For yellow, the three colors are yellow-green, yellow-orange and purple.

Bedroom Painting Preparation Work

In this case Mississauga painters were called in because the homeowner was having difficulty with preparing and doing the paint finishes. The previous paint job was never primed prior to painting. Basically the paint was on top of the wall like a plastic bag. And when some damages were attempted to be repaired the paint was peeling off like skin. The peeling actually would not even stop it would keep on peeling as long as you're pulling on the paint. It was coming off in sheets and pieces. Most probably what happened here was that they put on latex over top of an oil-based paint without priming it.So basically what we did is where it was attached to the wall very well we would leave it on and plaster a thin layer over the entire wall to make it all uniform. Then we primed the wall.Now that we have primed the wall we take a light and check for defective drywall repair. When the light is shined on to the surface it will show any places where the plaster was not set up properly or possibly place where a repair was completely missed out. You can also check the plasterwork prior to priming it but generally all the slight imperfections will show up after priming.

Painting Hard to Paint Colors

Red paints/orange paints and yellow paints are the more difficult paints to try to get accomplished in just two coats. Their bases are so clear and have lots of pigment added to it to make the color thus not having very good hide ability. This is the reason why it is wise to buy a top line premium paint when considering painting is colors you’ll be happy you did. Since you know you are going to have to at least cut in all the walls with the brush 2 times or maybe even 3 I would not paint the walls I would just simply due to brushwork. And then you can paint the walls 1 or 2 or 3 times to fill in to a solid color.

Quick note: if you’re using a deep red color for your paint job, then prime the wall with a black or a dark gray primary likewise the lighter the red the lighter the primary (lighter gray) if you’re taking a yellow wall (light yellow) then make sure you have a white background.

Time to Paint Baseboards

Now that you have done a perfect job on your walls it’s time to finish it off painting your baseboards. Most probably you had touched the baseboard with the red paint here and there making sure that you do go to the very bottom of the wall. Now it is time to clean all this up with a nice straight lined. With your best latex brush you can paint a fine continuous line over top of the baseboard. Be careful not to wander onto the wall. It’s always better to cut a little bit short away from the wall that to hit the wall because that looks bad. If you need to go one more time for accuracy to make the line nice and straight. Here again if you are trying to do very accurate precision had painting by brush it’s important to buy the best quality trim paint such as Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams top line products. These paints have a very fine grind with the best additives to make the paint apply and flow and also level. The cheaper the paint the less the additives which makes the difference in a good paint. Usually when painting baseboards over top of hardwood floor it is smart to have the can on a cloth to be able to slide the can along the floor and also another wiping cloth to make sure that there is no paint on the hardwood floor as your moving along and painting.
