Picking the right paint goes beyond color!
Color is certainly important. With the right color, you can set a specific mood in your home or create a look that is uniquely you. However, color is just one of the many things you should think about when picking out paint; you also need to figure out what sheen to purchase; if you need a specialty paint or not; whether you want an acrylic or latex paint and so much more! In our last blog, we went over a couple of questions to ask yourself to help you pick out the right paint for your interior painting project in Westerville. Here are a few more questions to ask yourself:
#3. How often are you willing to repaint?
Some types of paint will last longer than others, so you need to figure out how often you want to repaint in the future. If you are looking for a low maintenance option that will look fresh for as long as possible, your best option is probably a 100 percent acrylic latex paint.
#4. How much money are you willing to invest in your project?
When it comes to paint, you get what you pay for. While you can certainly get away with purchasing a lower quality paint, you won’t get the same results and they won’t last as long. On the other hand, if you are willing to invest in a high-quality paint, there’s a strong possibility that you’ll be happier with the results.
#5. Which room are you planning to paint?
Just as you wouldn’t put carpet in the kitchen or the bathrooms because of the risk of mold, there are some paints that you shouldn’t put in those rooms either. In fact, they now make paint that is mold resistant and specifically designed for mold-prone areas, like bathrooms and kitchens!
#6. How much sun exposure do the walls get?
If you are painting a particularly sunny room, it’s important to pick a paint that won’t fade too quickly in the sun. Oil-based paints tend to fade and chalk when exposed to the sun, whereas latex paints are much more resistant even in bright sunlight.
