Arrow New Home Remodeling / Paint

Hey folks. We're hoping to do some remodeling & painting in our house. We're in one of the "right out of the box" homes, and we love it, but the decor/paint/design is bland. Any quick tips/fixes? We're trying not to spend a lot of $$$. Recently married and this is our first home...

Hi RunningGuy26, welcome to the DIY forums!

you question is too generic....

Please, describe the goals, style, rooms, etc
Some pictures would be great

In order to set an image here follow these easy steps-->
1 - upload your picture to a free online photoalbum like Photobucket or Flickr , for example
2 - Look for the link of your picture (usually, photoalbums provide a "link for a forum" script) --> copy the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located),
3 - In the DIY Forum--> Reply post or open a new post--> Press the 'Insert Image' icon above and paste the link--> or type after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image

runningguy26 - for example; if you know what your focal point is in your living room, etc., you could paint that wall a different color. That does a great job at change. If you choose to go with any colors that are of a medium base/depth, I always suggest satin/eggshell finish. When you use a semi gloss sheen, in my opinion, it takes away from the depth of the color. If you both are clueless when it comes to paint colors, ask the person in the paint department to help you get the correct hue for your paint. Example, if you walls are off white, but with a red hue/tint, and you want to paint it a sage green color, those to color will clash. If the paint store has a color wheel, that may help you along. Hope I didn't overload or confuse you more. Good Luck. PS: Congrats!
