Specialty Painting-Painting for the Chemically Sensitive

Specialty Painting-Painting for the Chemically Sensitive

Most people are able to tolerate the smell of a freshly painted room.  However, there are some people who would greatly benefit from specialty painting designed to keep paint smells at a minimum.  Asthma sufferers, people with breathing problems and others with multiple chemical sensitivity do have options when it comes to the painting phase of a home or room remodel.  Expectant mothers and mothers of young children are also good candidates for specialty painting.

Those who have breathing difficulties should avoid oil-based paints.  Not only are the fumes from these types of paints quite strong, the solvents used to clean the brushes and rollers have strong chemical smells as well.  Fortunately, latex-based paints have come a long way in recent years and now paint manufacturers offer a wide variety of paints with lower odors.  Paint with a lower level of odor is typically labeled “low-VOC” or “low-odor”.  VOC is an acronym for volatile organic compounds.  VOCs are known to cause headaches, breathing problems, nausea, and watery eyes in some people.

Just because a paint is labeled as low-odor or low-VOC doesn’t mean it has a lower quality or less color availability than a regular latex-based paint.  Low-VOC paints are available in all the typical paint formats such as semi-gloss, gloss, eggshell and flat.  Low-VOC paints can have color added to them just as with regular latex-based paints so chemically sensitive remodelers have as much choice in paint color as anyone else.

If you would like to have a painting done in your home, but want to keep paint odors to a minimum, please contact us to discuss all your available options.

Choosing The Right Colors For Your Residential Painting Projects

Choosing the right paint colors for your home can make all the difference in more ways than one. Not only will it directly affect the look of your home, but it will affect the feel as well. This is why it’s important that you take some time to carefully select the colors for any residential painting projects that you plan to do. Choosing The Right Colors For Your Residential Painting Projects

Subtle 

If you’re going for a subtle look, try sticking with colors like different shades of blue, lavender, light green, and pale yellow. Subtle colors will exude a feeling of calmness and serenity. You’d be surprised at how just simply painting your bedroom a powdery blue color will bring you tranquility, or painting your kitchen a buttery yellow color will bring you a sense of warm comfort.

Elegant

If you’re going for an elegant look, try sticking with neutral colors like white, beige, or brown. Think earth tones. Adding tasteful decor to a room that’s painted a neutral color is usually a surefire way to create true elegance. Elegant colors can also include shades of mahogany, rust, and garnet. Keep in mind that the lighter the color you choose the more spacious the room will look.

Vibrant

If you’re going for a vibrant look, try sticking with colors like red, orange, or dark purple. Vibrant colors are the perfect way to add some flair and some pizzazz into your home. Many times people who choose vibrant colors for their homes will choose more than one of these colors per room. It’s definitely one way to make your home stand out among others.

Homes in Need of a Trim Touch-Up

Sometimes, all that is needed is a trim touch-up, but attempting to do this yourself can end in disaster. Rickety ladders and dripping paint are just a few of the pitfalls.

Large Homes or Two-Story Homes

You may have done a great job painting your bathroom last year, but repainting the outside of a large home can be a daunting task. If you have a two-story house, painting it yourself could pose some serious safety concerns. Not only that, but it will take a very long time, and your time is better spent on other smaller home improvement projects.

Homes with Flaking Paint

Sanding and repainting a home with flaking paint is time-consuming, and you probably don’t have that kind of time. Leave this and other major painting projects to the professionals.

Homes Painted in an Unpopular Color

You were able to get past the lavender paint with green trim when you bought the house several years ago, but today’s buyers aren’t usually looking for fixer uppers. Your neighbors will also thank you when you switch to a light tan or pale yellow, perhaps with a traditional white trim. People like exterior colors to be conservative, so either change the color or be stuck there forever. Color changes are tricky, so again, leave it to the experts.

We are more than just a painting company, so please contact us with all of your home remodeling needs. From kitchen and bathroom remodels to trim touch-ups, Excellent American Painting is your one-call solution for preparing your home for the market.
