House vs Home

A house is a physical structure/dwelling where you live, which provides for your basic needs and safety. On the other hand, a home provides you with the mental and emotional support where you look forward to escape the outside world – a safe haven.

You can easily transform your house into a home by infusing your taste into it, thus making it a place that reflects you. This is the most important step in turning a house into a home. A home is not supposed to be an immaculate, bland canvas; it should say something about the people living there. Display your style by painting the rooms in different colours and put up photos and artwork that reflect your personality.

We know that not everyone is cut out to be a handyman, even less so a painter – that’s why we provide home painting services. Showroom Condition does not merely paint your house; we assist you to transform your house into a home.

Colour psychology

The feelings you hope to invoke in a specific room will have a major influence the choice of colours you will utilise:

  • Kitchen: whether you see it as the heart of your home or the place you make and keep food, the answers to these questions will determine the shade you paint your kitchen, be it yellow, green or grey.
  • Master bedroom: if you wish to ignite creativity and passion consider using shades of red – for a more tranquil and calm effect shades of blue will do the trick.
  • General: use yellow sparingly as an accent wall; should you decide to use yellow throughout the room, a weaker, pale shade will work. Green can bring a lot of life to a room, but keep in mind the lighting and the shade you use: too light a shade in a bright room will make things look a bit sickly. Red has a lot of strength and will make a great accent wall. However, an entire room in red may conjure images of a horror movie.

A light shade of grey is able to add a touch of elegance to any room, and will add to, but not over-shadow the colour you choose as your accent. Grey also is a neutral colour that creates a calm and clean impression. It’s great for most rooms in the house.  When you finally decide on the ambiance of a room, choose a colour that best embraces and stimulates those feelings.
