That’s because the basement is the room in your home that is typically the least used. It’s the room where you will spend the most time, and the most money, and the room that you most often choose for yourself.

So it is true that the basement is the most used room in your home, but it is also one of the least used rooms to begin with. So what to paint? You would think you’d want to paint the room you use the least, and not the room you use the most. To make room for the people you use the most, you would think you would move the less used room to the front of the house and paint it.

This kind of reasoning is why it is so sad that people paint their basements the same color as the rest of their house. So we’re going to talk about the “less used” room here, the room that is in the home most often used by the people most likely to be the most productive. This is the room in which you will spend the most time.

I think I just summed up the situation pretty well. My basement is my most used room. My first job after college was to paint my mom’s house. Every room in her house was painted a different color. I just got tired of looking at the same walls the rest of the year. I wanted something new. So I started searching and searching for a new paint color. I wanted something other than the drab brown I had been using.

I’m not saying you should get away from your decor because you’re not going to do anything with it. But I am saying that you should probably start thinking about what you’re going to do with your basement that doesn’t rely on the dark color scheme. I’m not going to tell you if you should paint your basement black.

Its hard to paint something that isnt black, but this is a good example of what I mean. One of our most popular posts on our blog has a very simple advice: “Use a lighter color for your basement and go for a lighter color on your walls.” But the way we have found to make that advice work in our business is to start by thinking about the color scheme youve already chosen. You dont have to choose a color that clashes with the rest of your decor.

The first step to painting a basement the right color is to get out the paints you have on hand and start mixing them together. You can start by mixing the lighter color you have on hand (like a “natural” color) with water, and then add the darker color (like paint) to your mix. This will give you a nice mix (and keep it at about 40-50% water) to start on your basement wall.

The next step is to add the white glaze you put on the floor with paint, just like you did with the floor of your living room. Now you have to be careful not to add too much water. If you add too much water you might get water marks on your walls, so be sure to only use about 50-70% of the water you use.

While you can’t just paint your walls with paint, you can spray the whole room with a spray in the middle. This will give your room a very natural look, but won’t be too bright. Then you’ll need to add some white glaze to the walls. If you don’t have any spray, you can use a mix like this.

That’s because spray comes in a color called white glaze, which is the same color as the paint you use. I like to leave the room looking like it does in the movies, without too much “decoration”, but with the white glaze. If you want more deco, you can add some white glaze to the ceiling as well.
