Choosing the Right Paint

If you want to change the energy of a space completely, consider repainting your walls. This simple yet effective step can completely transform any part of your home, which can come in handy if you hope to make a quick change to a familiar setting. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders to make an old room feel new again.

Of course, choosing the right paint for the job is essential. A lackluster paint will lead to lackluster results but finding the right paint can be hard if you don’t know what to look for.  If you would like helpful guidance during decision-making, consider working alongside our specialists at Columbia Paint & Wallpaper. Together, we can explore the options and determine which type best suits your upcoming DIY project.

Consider using a primer to ensure that your paint properly adheres to the surface. When applied before a topcoat, you can rest assured that your new layer of paint will adhere properly, making it look better and last longer. Primers can also serve as a sealer for porous surfaces and work as a stain blocker. Applying a primer can reduce the number of coats of paint you will need to apply to the wall, saving you both time and money.

Once you visit our showroom, you can browse our wide assortment of primers in order to find the best fit for the job. For the interior, we recommend Benjamin Moore Natura Premium Interior Primer. This 100% acrylic zero-VOC interior latex primer will meet all environmental standards while delivering the highest level of performance. Plus, it’s quick drying. Of course, we offer other options as well, including Benjamin Moore Ultra Spec 500 Primer, Benjamin Moore Enamel Underbody Primer, and more.

Interior Paint

Once you have decided which primer will work best, it’s time to choose the right interior paint. Aside from picking the perfect color, selecting the appropriate finish is imperative. Flat and matte finishes are non-reflective and best for low-traffic areas. Eggshell is a low-luster option that allows light to bounce effortlessly around the space, while satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss will add a heightened level of shininess to any wall.
