REDUCE STRESS BY INVESTING IN RELAXATION

As we enter the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that anxiety can often feel overwhelming. That’s why you may want to consider investing in relaxation, and we’re here to help. We’ve come up with a few projects you can plan around the house to help alleviate stress.

COLOR AND MOOD

Sometimes a change in scenery is more than enough to get the job done. Believe it or not, room color can actually have a major impact on your mood. When the goal is relaxation, cool colors are the way to go. Purples, blues and blue-greens have a calming effect, appearing to recede and increase the space of a room. These shades, especially blue, can improve productivity, helping to soothe and relax.

We are proud to be an independent paint retailer carrying both Benjamin Moore® and PPG paints and stains. Our team has the knowledge to help you choose the right color and tools to achieve the exact look that you’re striving for. If you already have a color in mind, we can help with that, too. We offer color-matching, so you can bring in the item you’d like to replicate, and our experts will create it for you.

CREATING AN OUTDOOR SPACE OR A RELAXATION ROOM

Between the past year of COVID-19 and a February full of snow, you’re probably ready to get outside. Whether that means a fire pit and some patio chairs or a newly constructed deck, being outdoors and experiencing nature is a good way to ease tension and invest in your mental well-being. This is the perfect time to create an outdoor space that you’ll be able to enjoy through the spring, summer and fall. We carry a variety of options for decking to help you bring that ideal area to life.

If outdoor space isn’t an option for you, bring outdoor elements inside with color, indoor plants, wood flooring and other natural elements.
