How to choose the right interior wall paint
To choose the right interior house paint, you’ll need to consider several important factors to ensure the final result is consistent and functional. Here are a few tips to help make the decision simple:
Determine the Purpose:
- High Traffic Areas: For hallways, kitchens, and children’s rooms, choose a paint that’s durable and easy to clean, like semi-gloss or satin.
- Low Traffic Areas: For bedrooms and living rooms, matte or flat finishes are suitable as they offer a smooth, non-reflective finish.
Choose the Right Colour: Consider the colour of your existing furniture, flooring, and other decor elements; the paint colour should complement these. Also, consider the function of the room — lighter colours can make a room feel larger and brighter, whereas dark colours feel cosier.
Pick up some paint samples, apply them to a section of the wall, and look at them at different times of day and lighting for an idea of what the finish will look like.
Consider the Finish:
Matte/Flat: Offers a non-reflective finish, ideal for hiding imperfections but can be harder to clean.
Eggshell: Has a slight sheen and is more washable than matte.
Satin: Has a smooth finish that’s easy to clean, making it suitable for high-traffic areas.
Semi-Gloss: Reflects more light and is very washable, ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
High-Gloss: Highly reflective and durable but will highlight imperfections.
Calculate the Quantity: Measure the square metres of the walls to be painted and check the coverage rate on the paint can to determine how much paint you’ll need for the project.
Preparation: Ensure the walls are clean, dry, and free from imperfections. Use a primer if the walls are porous or stained or if you’re making a significant colour change.
Remember, the right paint can transform a space, so take your time to decide. Alternatively, contact us for professional recommendations and advice!
