When it comes to interior painting, they say that many homeowners could benefit from a few tips before selecting from their color samples. Following these pointers can simplify the process and improve your chances for better results.

3 Ways To Find The Right Color

Don’t Use Your Wall For Testing

Slapping test colors onto a wall to see which one you like best can actually sabotage your paint job. Introducing various colors and textures in small patches will make the area difficult to paint over in a uniform way, compromising the integrity of your final project.

Utilize Card Stock Instead

Once the card stock is dry, tape or otherwise hang it onto the wall as a sample. This will actually give you a more accurate representation without causing you problems with your final coat. To get a better idea, consider painting poster board for a larger swatch.

Let The Professionals Handle It
