Matte, low sheen and gloss are available and each offer a unique look and character. What is most important to keep in mind is that everyone type of area has its specific type of paint. Example: Your washrooms and Kitchen are high humidity areas so they would requires a specific type of paint that is able to withstand a higher humidity. Where as in your bedrooms, you can use the usual type of paints as it is less humid in rooms.

  • What colour do you want?

Pinterest and other home interior blogs are a great source of inspiration if you are still deciding on color. You can also go to your local Hardware store or Paint Store and ask them to look at their color wheel samples. Some brands even have samples for customers to take at home to have an idea of what color would be nice.
