Choosing the Right Interior Paint for Your Space
Start with the right product to get the best results. Premium paint – which has a higher volume of solid material, binders and pigments – offers a longer-lasting, higher-quality finish than ordinary paint. Water-based paint formulas like latex are preferable to oil-based paints for interior projects. They’re quick-drying, easy to touch up, can be cleaned with soap and water and have a low odour.
How To Choose A Paint Colour
Picking a paint colour depends on several factors, including lighting, furniture, flooring and personal taste. Here are some questions to ask when making your decision:
After you’ve narrowed down your colour choices, it’s a good idea to test. Paint samples let you try out your colour selection in a room with minimal investment. Ask in-store for details.

How does ceiling paint differ from wall paint? Many formulas minimize splatter and provide more coverage. Find out if your ceiling is sealed or unsealed before deciding on a paint, and check if it can be applied on a new ceiling or one that has already been painted.
Low-sheen is a popular choice for ceilings because it hides imperfections; if you want to use semi- or high-gloss, make sure ceilings are smooth and free of nicks, dents and marks. Low-sheen or flat-finish paint is recommended for textured, popcorn or acoustic ceilings.
