New Colors for Your Frisco Home

Are you having problems picking the perfect new paint color for your Frisco home? You’re not alone. Many of our customers struggle when it comes to this part of their home renovations. We know that picking a paint color or colors can be intimidating and even a little bit scary, so we’ve put together a few strategies to help make the paint-selection process easier for you.

Get Inspired. Look at your home’s furnishings, décor, heirlooms, and the other things that you love in your home to find colors that compliment your style. Websites like Pinterest or Houzz are great ways to find colors or color schemes. 

Resist Fads. We know that it is tempting to go with colors that are trending because of popular home renovation TV shows, but when the Gaines’ farmhouse gray goes out of style, and chartreuse becomes the new hot color, you may find yourself wanting to paint all over again. Instead of going with fads, select colors that are neutral and timeless. This way, you can simply update your décor instead of overhauling your walls when you want to make a change.

Consider the Big Picture. One of the major mistakes that homeowners make when it comes to painting is using too many colors or color transitions in their space. Using drastically different colors in the same room or in between adjacent rooms can make your interior seem choppy or disconnected. Use colors that are similar or complement each other for a smooth transition and more natural feel.

Take the Test. Once you’ve selected the color or colors you like, paint large areas on multiple walls throughout your home to see how the light affects the color throughout the day. You may love that gray in the morning, but it could look bluer in the sun of the afternoon or more brown in the evening when the sun goes down. Leave your sample sections up for at least a week to decide if you love the color or want to make a switch to something else.

Find the Right Finish. Once you’ve picked your out your paint color, select a finish that works best for your home or a particular room. Areas of high traffic and use are perfect for a flat or satin finish, while eggshell works best in areas like living rooms and entryways.

Hire a Professional. While painting is a home project you could totally undertake on your own, it requires a lot of time and effort to complete. Hiring a contracting company like Chipman Contracting means getting the job done quickly with professional quality results.

Bathroom Remodel

Do you love your bathroom or are you just living with it? Do you wish you had more storage? Dreaming of upgrading your builder basic shower and fixtures? If you want an update and you don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Chipman Contracting will guide you through each step of the design and build process to give you the bathroom of your dreams.

Some things to consider when thinking about your bathroom renovation:

  1. Upgrade your Shower. It’s time to trade out that fiberglass, one-piece builder level shower for something grander. Ceramic tile is easy to clean, making it a popular option over glass or glass block. Many people are opting to add in additional features like built in bench seating, multiple shower heads, and storage shelves.
  2. Consider New Counters. Countertop upgrades are a must during your renovation. Swap out the faux marble or Formica for granite or quartz for a drastically different look.
  3. Focus on Fixtures. Swap out old brass, chrome, or crystal fixtures for new brushed bronze or nickel finishes. Choosing a high-quality option will lend to durability over time. If you’re not sure what would best fit your style or budget, just ask us for a recommendation!
  4. Picking Privacy. Putting the toilet behind closed doors is a popular trend in bathroom remodels and a must have for shared bathrooms. We can design a private space that separates your toilet from the rest of your bathroom.
  5. Do a Double Take on Your Vanity. Double vanities just make sense. No more fighting over the sink or the mirror in the morning. A double vanity not only gives you a second sink, it doubles your storage space below, too!
  6. Super Storage. We can also help you stay organized and increase your storage space by adding cabinets and built-ins. Some customers choose to add additional closets for linens or bulk items.

Do you have a dream bathroom design in mind? We would love to hear about your plans! Call Chipman Contracting today at 972.841.5082
