Updating your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom or any room can be as easy as a new coat of paint. At Feld’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Greencastle and Avon, IN we are here to make updating your home easier than you imagined. Stop by our showroom and check out our featured paint brand, Martin-Senour Paints. We’ve done the research for you and can give you the basic run-down of what to expect when you decide to update your home with a fresh coat of paint on your walls. Below is a list of what is important to consider when you are painting your home.
Before even choosing a color, you’ll want to decide on the sheen of the paint. Sheen is the finish of the paint. High-traffic areas do well with gloss or satin as they hold up better to touching and can be cleaned more easily. But, they can make wall more pronounced. A more matte-like finish will not clean as well or tolerate touches as well, but you won't see imperfections as much.
Try a sample before you commit the whole wall. Sample pints are a great way to see what a paint color really will look like in your home. You would rather spend a few dollars on a sample than invest a lot of money into gallons of paint with a color that won’t work.
Do the math and add more. Add up the square footage of your walls and any alcoves or inlets. You should also account for multiple coats, a primer, and the absorbency of your walls. You’ll want some left over paint for touchups later on. Unless you buy an all-in-one paint and primer, you’ll need to prime your walls if you are drastically changing your wall color.
