We all want our homes to look nice while also reflecting a bit of our own personal style. Many people choose to do this with a new, fresh interior paint colour. Here at Wasaga Beach Decorating, we are paint experts and would like to pass along some of our knowledge before you embark on your next painting project!
First, don’t try to make your design choices fit your paint colour! Instead, choose your larger design pieces such as cabinet colour, flooring, or tile and then head to the wall of paint swatches. It’s much easier to tweak your paint colour until you find the perfect fit than it is to try and change the colour of your larger design elements.
Second, choose the right sheen for your lifestyle. A flat interior paint will not work well for families with small children who still colour on the walls! A more appropriate choice for frequent scrubbings or other areas that need moisture resistance is a satin or semi-gloss sheen. Flat paints work well for ceilings, bedrooms, or other low traffic areas.
Lastly, when choosing your paint, make sure you prioritize quality over quantity. Less expensive paints are less expensive because they usually are thinner than a quality paint, therefore requiring more coats and not really saving you much money. A high-quality paint like Benjamin Moore will be thick, cover evenly, and give you purer colours.
