If you are not a professional painter, you may be confused and hesitant when it comes to certain home painting issues. This is because there are a number of factors that one has to consider before choosing a paint that fits one’s home. Here are 3 of the said factors!
Most furniture comes in a limited choice of colors. For example, your chair may only come in blue and your couch may only come in brown. The wall paint must therefore complement the furniture and a homeowner or family member should base the color of a wall, around the choice and existing colors of the furniture. Besides, a wall can be repainted if the initial layer of color is found to be undesirable but it would be troublesome and costly to replace a piece of furniture due to a clash of color choices with the wall.
Single tone or multi-tone
Would you like to paint the walls of your home in a single color or do you have a combination of colors for different rooms in mind? This will affect your eventual paint choice. It is easier to select a paint color if it is going to be the only color used on the home walls, and it may be harder to choose a combination of colours as there is a need to ensure that the different paint colors match and complement each other.
Oil or latex paint
There are 2 kinds of paint and they are oil and latex paint. Latex paint does not cause cracking and peeling, which is present on oil paints, and latex paint allows for moisture to escape the walls through the porous surface of the paint.
Oil paints have a very hard and thick surface which are able to hide any existing imperfections on the walls. Oil paints are also easier to wash. An owner needs to decide between using one of the aforementioned types of paint!
