Picking just the right paint for your home

Here at Glassprimer.com we want to provide you with resources other than just your Glass Paint needs. So that’s why I wanted to just take a moment and provide some helpful tips on interior painting. Having a room, or an entire house, repainted on the interior is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to really bring new life and style to your home.

Painting the interior of your house is a big job and there are a lot of things to take into consideration. In this short space I just want to quickly go over a few things to keep in mind when selecting your color. You have a lot of different ones to choose from. It is always a good idea to pick a color that complements what is already in your room. If you’re moving into a new place and don’t have any furniture, tile, or other set pieces that are already in place I recommend gathering them first. It is easier to find paint that matches all the items in your room than it is to match all of the items to the paint. You can go about the choosing process in several different ways.

You can go to the paint store and look at their selection of paints for something that fits your decor. Most larger paint stores will allow you to go through this online, but I encourage seeing it in person before you make any final decisions. If you’re more of a free spirit and would like to take color from somewhere else, for example, a piece of artwork or a vase–you can read about an iPhone App that allows you to do just that.

Once you have a paint in mind get samples so you can bring them home and see how they look there. Lighting has a large effect on how we see color so it is a good idea to view the paint at all times of the day. In addition to the paint color that you fall in love with bring several lighter and darker shades along. Because of the difference in light that I mentioned you could wind up with several really different impressions.
