Fresh spring interior painting updates continues unabated in Highland Village and Flower Mound. The trend toward lighter, less ‘heavy’ paint schemes is as popular as ever throughout the Flower Mound, Double Oak, Argyle, and Lantana areas. Homes are casting off the golds, yellows, and tans of ten years ago and are replacing them with light, fresh gray-beige colors. Gone too are the jewel-tones of the 2008 era; that is the dark reds, dark greens, etc.
This updated paint color mind-set is especially common when it comes to kitchen cabinets and cabinet painting. The honey-oak colored stain in kitchens are being updated as fast as we can get to them. Here you see some Highland Village cabinets that have been updated from a heavy stain to Benjamin Moore’s ‘Simply White’ color OC-117.
The top picture shows that the walls and the ceiling were the same color. What you don’t see in this picture is some of the old wallpaper that we removed. We removed the wallpaper, prepped and floated some failed sheet rock seams, applied new ‘knock-down’ style wall texture and repainted the walls, ceiling, trim, baseboards, and doors. In this house, all of the walls and ceilings were the same builder beige color. You can also see that the trim paint on the crown molding has ‘yellowed’ over time.
The ceilings were repainted using Sherwin Williams ceiling flat with the ‘Alabaster’ color SW7008. The walls were painted using Sherwin Williams SW7029 Agreeable Gray. Sherwin Williams now has a new ‘low sheen eg-shel’ paint finish which was used in this home. The low-sheen eg-shel is great because it isn’t very shiny but it still maintains the surface wash-ability of a full eg-shel or ‘satin’ sheen paint. The Agreeable Gray with the Simply White cabinets is a fresh, new look for this kitchen.
As we’ve said many times before, kitchen cabinet painting is a cost-effective way to achieve interior painting updates or to update a kitchen quickly.
