Don't Paint Until....

You have tested it out at home. Paint is the best and cheapest way to bring new life and style into your home. We all see that perfect paint color but once you get it home and on your walls it looks different in your space. The trick is bring home a few tester cans in various shades of the same color to see how it looks in your place. Remember paint will also look different when it's wet and will often dry to a lighter shade. Natural and electric light can impact color so be sure you see your paint test in both lights.

Here are some tips for paint perfection,
- flat of matte finish will absorb light and hide imperfections, best used in bedrooms, dining or living rooms
- Semi gloss or high gloss reflects light and is best used on perfectly smooth surfaces such as trim and doors
