5 Essential Considerations for Repainting a Room
Portland Paints has you covered.
Time for a refresh? Painting the walls can be the quickest way to freshen up a stale living space. It's also hard to know where to start. At Portland Paints, located in the heart of the Pearl - we've got you covered with color specialists, the best selection premium paints in every finish and color.
As you begin to think about your paint project, here are 5 things to consider.
Seems obvious, but consider the furniture, decor and space of the room in question. Choosing paint colors that work within a cohesive color palette is half the battle. Color can also help change the size perception of your room. Light colors will make a small room seem bigger, while darker colors will make the space seem smaller.
Consider nearby rooms —shades should flow as you go from space to space and it's important to consider how one color will work with the next.
Finish is almost as important as color. The most common types are flat, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss. High gloss will reflect light while flat finishes give a cozy feel.
Lighting! Paint color & finish looks entirely different under natural or artificial lighting. It's important to test samples, on different parts of the room so you can see how lighting will affect the final color.
When you're ready to start, remember to start with the trim :)
