    Talking

    My wife is thinking on painting the inside of the house all white. What do you think?

    That would a great color if you are thinking about selling the house.

    It is the easiest color to paint over.
    If the superheat ain't right it ain't charged right.

    Good point, Kim.

    I made the mistake of painting my upstairs bath white. Just a tiny hint of brown or green or blue would have made a great difference. White screams for something else.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I thought I would post an obnoxious topic like royc. This is just a test.

    What makes you think your wife will let you choose paint color?

    Your wife thinks? I am glad mine doesn't. She just sits around and looks pretty.....and, oh yeah, spends my money.
    Installs, Changeouts, & Heat Stroke.....not necessarily in that order

    Most of the rooms in my house are painted white (that way when I bought it this spring). I'm happy with them that color, but everyone that comes to visit is always saying how good it'd look with some color name I've never heard of painted with trash bags fuzzy rollers and spayed with various brushes for "artistic" effect.

    Heck I can't even stand it when they spray texture on walls to give a facy look.

    I'm sure someday I'll get around to repainting some of the walls though... maybe orange? lol

    If your smart you will hire a painter. And NEVER, I mean NEVER try a airless spray rig while still living there!

    Sounds like you may need an interior decorator too.

    White

    Went on a service call to do a startup of some gas fired equipment. When I went into the house I needed sunglasses. The floors, walls, ceilings, furniture, dishes, curtains, bedding, railings, trim, shingles were all white. The couple wore white clothes and had blonde hair and blue eyes and were from Germany. The only thing that wasn't white was the green Rheem equipment that I started up. I'll have to go back sometime and see if that has been painted white.
