The absolute easiest and quickest way to breathe new life into any room is with new paint colors. If your dining room is feeling drab, brighten it up with a new hue. When your bedroom just does not make you feel relaxed, find a new interior paint color that will allow you to sleep better at night. But many of us forget about a small room we use every day: our closet. And most likely, your house has more than one.
There are our clothes closets in the bedrooms, linen closets in a bathroom or hallway, and maybe even a pantry. Chances are good that these small but mighty rooms have the same drab wall paint that the contractor used when building the home. It’s about time to pay these rooms a little respect with a new paint job.
When it comes to your most used closet, your clothes closet, you may want to stick to a more neutral palette. You want a color that complements your clothes. If you paint your closet teal, many of your clothes will not look appealing next to that color. A neutral paint, in the families of beige or gray, is ideal for this room.
A linen closet is your chance to have a little more fun with your interior painting ideas. Choose a bright bold color that complements your bathroom or linens. If all of your towels are white, then a red or blue linen closet would really make them stand out. Of course, neutral is always an old standby if you don’t feel the need to experiment.
Lastly, you do not want to leave out your pantry. If you have a walk-in pantry, consider painting the backs of the shelves. You could paint them the same color as your kitchen in order make your kitchen appear larger.
With all of your closets, choosing the right interior paint sheen is key. Go with a satin finish for rooms like closets. There will be a lot of movement as you take things in and out and a satin finish is more forgiving and easier to clean than a matte finish.
