      Paint the Town…Solar?

      Paint the Town…Solar?

      The Magic of Solar Paint

       Yes, you read that right. Otherwise known as photovoltaic paint, solar paint is being hailed worldwide as the future of solar. And what is it, you ask? It’s exactly what its name suggests – apply it to any surface, and solar paint will capture the sun’s energy and convert it into actual electricity you can use in your home or office space.

       How Does It Work?

      The paint itself is engineered with billions of light-sensitive materials which are suspended in the liquid. While the concept is still relatively new, solar paint is set to empower home-owners and businesses to leverage the potential of solar energy with fast, easy, and cheap installation.

      Why Isn’t It Mainstream Yet?

      The thing about solar paint is that its solar energy capture ranges from about 3% to around 8%. For example, solar paint with 6% efficiency means it captures around 6% of the sun’s available energy. Seeing as conventional silicon solar panels recently hit 20% efficiency, it’s clear to see that solar paint technology still has a long way to go.

      Looking Ahead

      While it’ll probably be a few months or years before solar paint reaches your home, we can already get excited and start planning for its widespread implementation. Whether you’ll be painting the house solar next year or painting your pantry this weekend, don’t make another move without Kolossus Workwear’s coveralls in your DIY arsenal.

      How To Choose Interior Paint Colors

      The simplest starting point for selecting interior paint colors is to think about the colors you love. From here, you can see how variations on these colors will work in your interior spaces. Social media sources like Instagram and Pinterest will give you a wide range of decorating options that are likely to inspire you – so take advantage of these platforms!

      Once you have enough colors to choose from, you will need settle on a color scheme. With the use of a color wheel, you can easily see what different combinations of colors will look like together. And don’t underestimate how interesting traditionally “bland” colors can be. You can dress up more neutral colors by adding a pastel-colored ceiling or even a striped wall to create some vibrancy.

      You might also find that the environment outside your home has colors that will work inside. Whether it’s the greens of lush foliage or the blue hues of beach living, you can create an intimate connection with the outdoors just by using your colors cleverly.

      Once you’ve finalized your palette, it’s important to sample your paint first. You need to be sure that the color you imagine will actually look like that on the wall – so do your homework to avoid being disappointed.
