Selecting paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.
At Morales Painting we work with our customers in the Morristown area to help them find the best paint for the job. Usually it starts with a number of questions, including:
We've not yet gotten to color, but these questions can help us determine the needed quality and sheen for your Morristown area home. Homeowners will often want to have a higher quality paint used in a room more frequently visited by others, like the living room, than they will want to use in a child's bedroom. We'll take that into account.
Sheen is important when you are thinking through how to select paint. You'll want to consider how the room is used and how much you like, or don't like, shiny walls. A gloss or semi-gloss paint can work well in kitchens and play rooms as they'll be easier to wipe clean and will stand up to some "abuse." But, if you don't like shiny walls you won't like gloss or semi-gloss paint.
You may love the effect a flat or matte paint can give a room, but it's important to know that they won't be quite as easy to clean.
Most customers will settle on satin or eggshell when house painting. Some people love, and always use, one or the other. Other customers will choose one or the other depending on the room, using satins for kitchens, bathrooms and children's rooms, and eggshell for living rooms, dining rooms and adult bedrooms.
That brings us to what is most often the challenging part when selecting paint for a home - choosing the color. Again, we'll ask some questions:
These are just some of the many questions that you'll want to ask yourself when you are considering color for house painting projects. We can say that most customers end up being most happy when they factor in the feeling they are trying to create throughout the house instead of just picking a color they like for one room.
It can be easy for homeowners to fall into the current trend. This can be fine if the trend is likely to hold up or if the homeowner doesn't mind painting their home every couple of years. Other customers will be focused on keeping within the style of their home or creating a timeless look that will hold up over many years.
Ultimately, you'll want to pick a color that works for you. Unless, of course, your purpose for painting is to sell the home or rent out the space. There are many, many resources for you to look at when considering how to select paint - here are a few good ones:
Many people choose to paint their ceilings white or off-white, and that's certainly fine. But, if you are considering a renovation, or just a different look for a room, don't forget about the ceiling. Painting the ceiling can help a room look bigger, or smaller. It can add a swanky feel or a touch of formality. Either way, homeowners usually find that painting a ceiling is much more difficult than painting a wall. So, give Morales Painting a call and we'll save you the time, as well as the aches and pains.
Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at Morales Painting we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

Loved the work done at my house everything so professionally done! Everyone is so nice and gave me an awesome price. Definitely hiring them again for future jobs! Thank you Morales painting, will recommend!
Abraham and his crew did a great job and finished the entire project in one day! They also fixed or dressed up minor issues as they came across them where most other painters would have skipped over them. Highly recommend these guys!
We just recently bought a house and bit off more than we could chew with the projects. From the moment I called Morales Painting I was impressed by the info that I was given. The whole experience was awesome from start to finish including quoting the job, pricing, expertise of the team, and the final product. It was literally perfect! Our house is everything we wanted it to be without the stress being on us with so much going on. I can't thank them enough, and we already have another project set up with them! Don't use another painter for this area other than Morales Painting! Update: We just finished our second project with the team and it went just like the first. These guys are awesome and first class talent. Don't use anyone else!
