It`s all about the sheen !
The sheen of an interior paint is the finish, or in regular
terms, how shiny the paint is once its dried and on your walls, ceilings, trim etc. Sheen levels start with a
flat paint, rising to eggshell, satin, semi-gloss and high gloss finishes. A professional painting company will be able to advise you as to the best sheen for the particular area you are painting. For example, a high traffic area will need a satin or eggshell type finish for durability but not too much sheen as to show up any imperfections on the wall. A flat paint will hide most imperfections but will not have the washability of a higher sheen paint.
Be brave with your colours
Putting a big, bold colour on the exterior of your home is not an option most people tend to choose. The interior however is a much different case altogether, you can be as imaginitive as you like with your bold colour choices there. Go with colours which accentuate your rooms and add depth to them but try to avoid darker colours. These will give an impression of a much smaller space once your project is completed. Try to select a lighter range of colours to enhance your space and give an appearance of roominess. A professional company will either be able to advise you on colours or you may even choose to seek the advice of a colour consultant first too.
Don`t forget to prime first !
You should always remember to prime as necessary prior to painting to achieve a uniform finish. If your wall is stained or you are carrying out a major colour change then priming first is an absolute must. Advice on primers can be found in this article if you are unsure or call your local professional for information.
