How to Choose Paint Colour

Finding The Right Paint for Your Project

Have you chosen your interior paint colours yet? Keep in mind that there are some additional paint characteristics and qualities that you need to consider before you buy. If you have additional questions, you can ask a House Painting, Drywall Repair and Wallpaper Services  Local Pro, or visit a Home Depot Paint Centre at any of our stores and speak to an associate.  

Choose and match colours

When picking paint colours, consider which ones effectively serve elements of the room and what style you hope to convey: for instance, are you aiming for neutral or bolder tones?

Clean sheen

Whether flat, matte, eggshell or glossy, finish is just as important as colour. Less-reflective paints hide surface imperfections better, but are less durable than glossy paints.

Paint Quality

Does it come with primer? Quality varies with price, so consider features beyond colour and finish: some are more durable, require fewer coats or resist stains more effectively.

4 Things You Should Ask Before Hiring a House Painting, Drywall Repair and Wallpaper Services Local Pro

When hiring a Local Pro, it’s important to communicate your expectations, as well as to be clear on what is or isn’t included with their House Painting,  Drywall Repair and Wallpaper Services. Make sure from the start that everyone’s on the same page by asking about the following:

1 How should I get my home ready?

Find out what you need to do before the painter arrives. Ask your Pro whether they’ll move your furniture, cover your floors and furniture with drop sheets and remove picture frames, wall-mounted fixtures and cover plates for light switches or electrical sockets.

2 Will you prepare the walls?

Many House Painting,  Drywall Repair and Wallpaper Services Local Pros will begin their work by prepping the walls to ensure as clean a paint job as possible. Ask your painter if the job will include drywall hole repair or drywall patch work, taping around all edges and corners and applying a layer of primer.

3 Do you provide a contract and guarantee your work?

Ask for an itemized record of the work that the Local Pro has been hired to complete, signed before work has begun. Also verify whether they guarantee their work, in order to ensure you are fully satisfied once the job is done.

4 Will you help me choose paint?

Some painters may also act as a colour consultant and help you choose paint for your project, ensuring that you find the right colours and finishes, as well as explaining your options for various levels of paint quality. Other Local Pros may expect you to have an idea prior to starting. You can also visit a Home Depot Paint Centre at any of our stores, where an associate can help you find the right paint and answer any questions you might have.
