How to Select Interior Paint Colors

Selecting an interior paint color - grey wallsPaint comes in a variety of types and finishes. Interior Paint should be latex paint. We usually use Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore paint products. Our most used paints are Sherwin Williams Resilience Exterior Acrylic Latex Paint, Sherwin Williams Duration Home Interior Acrylic Latex Paint, or Benjamin Moore Regal Select Interior Premium Paint. Most paints come in different finishes, so the finish you want may decide which paint you use.
As far as the sheen or finish you prefer, there are different levels of sheen which will have different benefits. If you are painting a high traffic area, like a playroom or kitchen, you would want to use a satin finish. A satin finish has easy cleanability and does not allow grease to absorb into the sheetrock, it stays on the surface of the paint and allows you to clean off. This is the same finish recommended for a bathroom as the water or steam won’t penetrate the paint.

If you like your finish not too shiny you can use an egg-shell or matte finish. For a finish that will let you wipe off walls without a having a shiny look, we would recommend Duration Home in a matte finish. The higher the shine of the finish, the easier it is to see wall imperfections, so that is something to consider when choosing a finish.

Selecting Colors
If you want a subtle and soothing look, you can stay with the same color throughout the main area of your home. Using a light gray or light beige or light gray/blue color throughout your main space will leave the house with an open and airy feeling, not darkening the space, and gives a calm and tranquil element to your home. It will also make your house feel lighter and more spacious. You can always add a pop of color on an accent wall, or use your curtains and pillows and accessories to add color to space.

If you are looking for a more vibrant look, go to your local paint supplier and look at colors. Painting with cool colors such as blues, greens and purples make small rooms appear larger and airier while colors such as reds, yellows, and oranges will give a room a more vibrant appearance. You can vary the warmth even with a red or yellow by choosing muted shades of those colors such as pink, peach or a buttery yellow. Always put a sample up on the walls before making your decision as to the lighting in your home and other variables might make these colors look different in your home.

To finish everything off, there is nothing like a bright, white semi-gloss trim. When painting trim uses a semi-gloss which will provide a contrasting brightness to the wall finish, adds a pop of shine and a more elegant look to the room.
