A fresh coat of paint can revitalize the look of just about any space and give the interior of your home a boost of style. More affordable than a room renovation, painting can provide an entirely new look and feel.
When choosing the best interior paint for your room upgrade, there are some things to keep in mind. The first one most likely on the top of your list is color and the overall look and feel you want to achieve. Darker shades can make a small room feel snug and homey, while bright and cheery yellow can bring some zing. Subtle hues found in nature can supply a serene atmosphere you can come home to each day. Color options are nearly limitless and can enhance the mood and overall feel of your space. Other things you want to consider while shopping for interior wall paint include its:
Whether your kitchen, bath, bed, dining, or living room, you want a durable paint than can withstand the traffic in the area. High-traffic areas or homes with children may want to choose a scrubbable paint that can clean easily, such as one with a gloss finish rather than flat.
How thick or thin a wall paint is the viscosity. A higher viscosity paints drip less and can cover darker colored walls more efficiently. And the thicker application may only take one coat to cover.
Coverage can go hand in hand with a wall paint’s viscosity. As mentioned, a higher viscous or thicker paint can provide greater coverage and fewer coats than a thinner paint. This can mean less paint to purchase, less time doing the work, and greater savings for you.
Sheen includes those terms you commonly hear at the paint counter… Gloss, semi-gloss, satin, eggshell, and matte or flat. Gloss paint supplies a bit of shine to a room, is scrubbable, and can be a good choice for homes with small children who like to run their fingers along the wall. Satin has a bit of sheen, but less than gloss and not scrubbable. Eggshell and flat are popular low luster options, but not ideal for high-traffic areas.
Toxicity… The word alone is alarming. When shopping for paints, choose a low toxicity paint, such as low or non-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) to reduce fumes and off-gassing.
As with any home improvement project, consider your budget. Keep in mind, though, less expensive options may not provide the quality you are looking for in an interior paint. Although costs less, you may end up needing more paint because of its low viscosity and frequent touch- ups. A good rule of thumb is to purchase the best paint that fits within your budget.
