We have all been there.
You spent weeks agonizing over your color selection for your home, looked at pictures, asked friends and anyone who would listen.
You finally chose the perfect color and you give it to your painter to apply and you run off to work only to find when you get home the worlds worst color and your heart drops. The whole room is finished and you’re mad at yourself, the painter and the paint store too.
So now what? How could this of been avoided? The better question is how much will this cost to fix.
Don’t panic first, it’s only paint, no one was hurt and there are much worse things in the world that could have happened and are happening than your bedroom color. Laugh it off and let’s fix it.
The first thing we will look at is a color chart, why do you not like this one? Did the lighting in the room or from a window change the color?
The painters are already at the home, so your cost should be a lot less than originally charges as they don’t have to mobilize or set up again. There certainly will be a cost as it was not the painter’s fault, don’t blame them they only put it on the wall, they cannot be expected to know your taste.
How could this of been avoided? Easy, do samples IN your home, don’t pick the color from a fan deck or at the store. Bring the color home at the least, a small qt of paint is not that expensive vs painting the entire room over. Lighting does change colors, we have had clients swear we have used different paint within the same room because of lighting changes. Put this color on the wall and check it at different times of the day.
These simple samples can save money and wasted time and save the stress and misery small things like this may create.
