If you can’t choose paint colours for your home (or office). These two tips for choosing paint colours will help you.

Ask in the paint store for paint card, take it home, cut out the colour you like, and stick it on the wall to see it in your room’s lighting. Don’t make a decision based on how a colour looks in the store.

Invest in a sample of paint and apply the colour to a two-by-two-foot piece of foam board. Position the panel in several parts of the room at different times of the day to gauge the changing light.

Painting is an important part of a renovation job. Painting is the final touch and must be done perfectly in order to project the right look and feel. Painting is the most affordable way to improve the way a space looks, without more extensive renovation.

There are many different paints available, but for the most part, they can be classified as water based and solvent based. Water based are faster drying, but have poorer flow properties. It is often possible to apply more than one coat in a day, but brush marks are more difficult to eliminate. Oil based are slower drying, but have better flow properties. Generally, these will need to be left to dry overnight before applying further coats, but the marks left by your brush will tend to reduce as the paint levels out.
