4 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Paint Finish

Image
Recently we discussed how to choose the right color of paint for your next project.  Choosing the right color is very important but choosing the right finish is equally important.  There are several factors to consider when choosing the finish - here are a few tips on the different types of paint that will hopefully help you make the right choice.

Flat paint is usually the best choice if you have difficult conditions to work with. Generally speaking, the worse the condition of your walls, woodwork or molding, the more you need to lean towards flat paint.  Flat or eggshell finishes of paint show little of the irregularities of the old paint layer you’re covering with new paint. Satin finish is a good choice for old woodwork and doors. It has good durability and can hide irregular drips.Semi-gloss paint is very good for use in bathrooms, kitchens and on doors. It’s durable and cleanable.Gloss paint is the most durable finish. It also provides an exciting shine, especially in contemporary…

6 Tips to Select the Perfect Paint Color to Freshen Up a Room

Image
Last week we suggested that you consider a new paint color if you have a room that is looking a little drab.

Now, to the next step...choosing a paint color.  This process can be difficult and overwhelming because there are sooo many color options!

Here are a few tips that will help you choose that perfect color for your home:
Review the collection of paint colors at your local home improvement store. Bring swatches of fabric, photos, or something from the room that will help you narrow down your search.  Once you locate the shade that you believe is the right for your room, go up and down the “shade” of this color. This will provide a family of shades that represent the same color.Determine which paint finish you will want to use:  flat, eggshell, semi-gloss etc.  Purchase samples of all three colors to help you narrow down to your favorite shade.   Paint a section of your wall with each of the colors.  You will want to test the color at the base, middle and near the ceiling.  Allow the…
