Choosing the Best Paints for Your Home Improvement Project, Green, Ohio

If a remodeling or home improvement project is in your near future, you may be wondering which paints you should choose for best results.

For over 30 years, they have helped customers choose paint, siding, awnings, and storm doors, and they have the experience and expertise to help you complete a home improvement job smoothly and efficiently.

Choosing Interior Paints

Semi-gloss paints are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, since they are easy to wipe down. Satin is likewise a good choice, especially in a pearl sheen. Pearl is iridescent, which minimizes water stains and is mildew resistant—a useful property in damp or humid conditions.

Living room and bedrooms look best with a warm, non-glare sheen, so flat or eggshell paints are a good choice. Choose a flat paint for ceilings to reduce glare and hide any defects. Semi-gloss paints work well for baseboards, since they are durable and make it easy to clean off scuffs from shoes, chairs, and vacuum cleaners.

Choosing Exterior Paints

Then choose a flat or low sheen paint for a uniform appearance. Oil-based paints work best for metal outdoor structures—for woods, such as doors, decks, or gazebos, use latex paint or stain for protection and an attractive appearance.
