Best Colors For Your Walls

Best Colors For Your Walls

There is life beyond the color white (although sometimes it is the best option). If you want to add character to your home, go for more original tones such as navy blue, burgundy or pink.

Off White

If you want to get away from nuclear targets and go for something less glowing, off-target is ideal.

Bluish Gray

It is a soft, relaxing and sophisticated color, ideal for all types of rooms.

Mint Gray

One of the colors that we like the most for the living room. This soft gray with mint green undertones is perfect for those looking for something subtle yet different

Orange Rose

Earth tones are a good option, this orange pink reminds us of the reddish color of clay. In the bathroom, as we see in the image, it looks great.

Light Grey

This color, between light gray and taupe, seems to us the most suitable for the bedroom. It is smooth but very sophisticated.

Navy Blue

Do not be afraid of dark colors, navy blue can look great in the living room.


Bold, elegant and only suitable for the brave, this beautiful color can be ideal in the living room.


When we are not deciding what color to paint, white is always a good option.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems.

To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects.

We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier. I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or burrowing below concrete.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement. I provide to you some reasons of why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement and how to deal with a basement drain backing up something that is no a DYI project at all.


There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and the standard water heater of a normal house. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
