A Commercial Painter Shares 3 Tips for Choosing an Interior Wall Color, Miami, Ohio

A fresh coat of paint can transform a dull room into a spot that’s exciting, relaxing, or even romantic. Of course, unless you have experience as a commercial painter, you might not know how to choose from the vast selection of wall paint colors on the market.

Luckily, it’s not difficult to do. By keeping certain factors in mind, and discussing your goals with interior painting experts, you can turn that generic room into something that will truly impress.

3 Tips For Choosing Colors From A Commercial Painter

1. Get Sample Sizes

Have a basic idea of what color you want the wall to be. That said, there are many different shades of wall paint colors available to you. Start out by heading to the store and finding three to five shades that look appealing to you. Then, rather than buying full cans, buy sample quarts. This will let you test each to get a better sense of how they’ll look in your home.

2. Choose A Finish

Commercial PaintersWhile you’re at the store, you should also choose a paint finish. If your walls are messy, bumpy, or damaged, you should lean towards flat or eggshell finishes; gloss paint finishes may look appealing, but they also draw attention to imperfections and should be used on walls that are still in good condition. Satin finishes work well on doors and other old woodwork, and semi gloss is very good for bathrooms.

3. Try It Out

On your wall, paint small squares, with sides only a foot or two long, with each paint sample. Let it dry, then compare how all of them actually look in the room. Now, choosing the paint color is easy; just pick which one you like best!
