Interior Painting Auckland

At Davis House Painters, we really care about your whole painting process. Before we  start any interior painting we take the time to understand exactly what it is that you, the customer, wants to achieve.

The interior painting of you home can transform it from mundane to inspiring. In this Auckland house market, having your interior looking its best is of prime importance, especially if considering selling.

We work closely with a professional interior designer/architect Marrion May, and whole heartedly recommend Marion’s work. Check out Marrion's portfolio at http://www.marrionmaydesign.co.nz/

Interior Painting Process

Our interior painting process ensures you get exactly the look and feel you are after while ensuring we work within your budget. Your home interior is our number one priority.

We talk through design options, various interior and house painting colour combinations, and the different quality and types of paints that are available for the surfaces you want transformed.

Here are some interior painting tips to consider:

  • Before any interior painting begins, it’s important to consider different types of paint finishes. High-gloss paint, for example, is extremely durable and easy to clean. If your wall contains imperfections, however, this type of paint is known to enhance the imperfection, so a flat paint may be a better option.

  • Light colours work anywhere, but dark colours require rooms with lots of windows and natural light.
  • Neutral colours match any decoration or furniture.
  • Auckland is a city where “green” isn't just  a colour. Choosing environmental and eco-friendly paints is now and easy option – ask us how.
  • If you've got patterned upholstery, a colourful rug or large piece of artwork, pluck colours you like from the pattern. For a neutral wall paint colour, look to the pattern's whites and beiges.
  • A real "cookbook" way to make any space look good without much risk, says designer Mark McCauley, is to use darker colour values for the floor, medium colour values for the walls and light values for the ceiling. "Any interior space replicates the outside world," he says. "The exterior environment is generally darker below our feet (the earth itself), medium-valued as you look straight ahead (buildings/trees) and lighter skyward."
  • Start with the Formal Areas of the House, specifically, the living room, dining room and entry way. Choose a colour scheme for those areas first, then pull one colour from the scheme. For example, take a red sofa and tone it down (say, to burgundy) for an accent in more private spaces such as the den, office or bedroom.
  • Take a Cue From Your Clothes. Most people buy clothes in colours they like to wear and they look good in. Similarly, you should dress your home interior in colours that flatter you. If denim is your go-to, consider a navy sofa or, if you look (and feel!) perkiest in bright yellows, try mixing in a few citrus accents with pillows or accessories.
  • When decorating a space, divide the colours into components of 60 percent of a dominant colour (walls), 30 percent of a secondary colour (upholstery) and 10 percent of an accent colour (accessories). This ratio ensures that the colours are properly balanced and there's just enough pop for interest.
  • Make Small Spaces Pop. If you have a small room in your house, don't paint it white to make it seem bigger. Instead, give it more oomph with a look-at-me colour choice. Let your big rooms expand with light, and your small rooms envelop you.
  • Showcase Your Personal Style. If you decorate honestly, other people will appreciate it because it's you, even if they'd never decorate their own house in the same way. That means if you want to make every room in your house red, white and blue, go for it. You can make any colour look good as long as it truly suits your personal style.
