New paint changes the look of a room completely, so choosing a color is an important decision. When you are standing in the store and there are a lot of color palettes in front of you, you can get confused and make mistakes, and the tips you read in this blog will help you avoid those mistakes.
The existing decor
When choosing a new paint color, pay attention to the color scheme, décor, and furniture colors of the room you want to paint. If you are not planning to test in an empty room, leave out some of the main Secor elements and match the color.
Every color has a cold or warm tone. For example, some white colors have a blue tint and are a little cold. Some have a yellow tone and are very warm. Since wall paint is more than just a pretty color, pay attention to the color tone. First of all, decide whether you want a warm or cold shade in the room.
The paint in the store may look perfect to you, but it may not suit your wall, so testing is essential. The best option is to check directly on the wall, but if this is not possible, you can paint a white sheet and stick it on the wall.
If you want to test several colors, do not make the mistake of applying them too close to each other. Leave a space between the samples. Also, it is best to test on different walls so you can better see how the paint looks in different lighting.
You might like the color during the test, but that doesn't mean it's the exact paint you need. Before making a choice, it is a good idea to observe the paint, because the color of the paint is often different in different lighting and weather conditions. By observing it in different conditions (weather, daylight, and night light) you will know exactly if it is the perfect color or not.
The right tools
It's always tempting to buy budget items, but low-quality brushes and rollers can leave marks on the paint, not give you the results you want, and of course, repainting will be a bigger expense. Therefore, give preference to high-quality painting tools.
Note: It is always better to have more paint and have more left after painting than less.
