Control the Mood With Interior Paint Colors

A new coat of paint can be the change you need.

Every room has the potential to tell a story, but the story the room tells is up to you. Some people think of fruits when they see red while others interpret it as strong emotions. FCI Painting of Naples, Florida wants to help you share your story by professionally painting your home’s interior.

Inspiration In A Can

There’s a science behind color combination that should cause you to ask yourself various questions.

What mood are you going for?

Do you want calming or are you trying to feel energized? Imagine if you walked into a restaurant and it was painted black instead of a vibrant red. The dark walls might make a person feel uncomfortable, whereas the vibrant red has the potential to create a lively and talkative ambiance. Keep in mind that no color is “bad”. By simply adding sheen to that same black paint, it can evoke a feeling of elegance and austerity.

Which color can achieve that mood?

Prepare to visualize! Everyone has different preference for colors, so finding out what works best for your home may take a few tries. You might want to choose a couple of color samples from your local paint or hardware store. You may be surprised at what works with your décor!

How do I decide on a shade?

Once you have a color picked out then you’re going to have to decide on which hue to use, how much saturation is needed, and which intensity will look the best in the room. This is when your local paint store comes in handy again. Take home a large selection of paint samples and decide which one will look best in your home. Don’t forget to see how they look in different types of lighting! However, this is when it gets tricky so don’t hesitate to use our professional knowledge to achieve your satisfaction. Sherwin-Williams offers a great paint sample option called Colors to Go that covers about 75sqft, so it’s great for testing colors!

Which color goes with what I want?

You’re either going to pair a color with one that creates contrast or cohesion. Contrast is using different colors in the same space to create visual attention, making a room seem livelier and encouraging the eye to roam. Cohesion will cause the room to flow and seem larger from room to room. We can help you create the right palette for any room if you find yourself needing help.

6 Stars

The entire process from start to finish was professional. They did a great job and left everything clean. Ryan wouldn’t leave until everything was perfect. The entire team was so responsive. I would recommend FCI to anyone. I would give them 6 stars if I could.

Reasonably Priced & Very Detailed

We have a three unit, two story condo building that needed an exterior painting job we awarded to FCI Painting. Their proposal was reasonably priced and very detailed. Richard Foden’s came to estimate the job and took the time to explain the process, answer questions and provide recommendations (that help us in our process). We received four proposals and FCI’s stood out making our decision straight forward. FCI crew was professional and the foreman ‘Eduardo’ exceptional. On a daily basis’s he communicated what to expect, what they would be achieving and the crews next steps. Crew was courteous and cleaned up the grounds every evening. We highly recommend FCI Painting company. Thanks

Incredible Service

I honestly cannot recommend this company enough. I was attempting to find painters in Naples while I was still in Canada. Richard and his team were so helpful in the process, going above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. They were thorough, professional, and one of the best prices I found in the area. Incredible service.

Can’t Recommend FCI Painting enough

I can’t recommend FCI Painting enough! Owner Richard Foden runs one of the finest painting companies I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. When my business moved into our new office, we started researching painters in Naples, FL and FCI came highly recommended. The commercial painters that Richard works with are prompt, thorough and professional. After working with them in a business setting, I’ll be certain to give Richard a call next time I’m in need of house painters as well.

Competitive & Fair

FCI Painting did an outstanding job for us and we are more than pleased with the results. We found the pricing to be competitive and fair. Our painter, Chris, was an expert craftsman, patched several areas of drywall that needed attention and helped us work through a problem we had with one of the colors we chose. We would definitely recommend FCI painting for anyone looking for a quality job at a fair price.
