Tips for Choosing the Right Benjamin Moore Paint Shade

Painting your home is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update it and improve its value. Most interior designers recommend that you repaint the interior of your home every 3-5 years. You may or may not choose to paint this frequently, depending on your individual preferences. However, if it has been longer than 10 years since you’ve revamped your interior wall colors, it’s probably time for a fresh coat of paint. Here are a few tips for finding the right Benjamin Moore paint Kirkwood MO.

Decide on Sheen

When choosing paint, one of the first things you need to do is decide what sheen you prefer. Keep in mind that glossier sheens are easier to clean, while flat sheens tend to attract dirt a little more and may be more difficult to clean up. Many homeowners prefer semi-gloss, because it’s easy to clean without being noticeably shiny.

Choose a Color Palette

Choosing the right paint colors from a paint store can be really challenging. If you plan to sell your home anytime soon, we recommend going with mostly neutral colors so that they will appeal to a wider audience. But if you plan to live in your home for at least a few more years, go with whatever colors you want. Refer to a color wheel to make sure you’re choosing complimentary colors. The last thing you want is for your paints and stains to clash once you put them on your walls.

Bring Home Samples

It might seem like a waste of time to bring home a variety of paint samples, but you’ll be glad you did. Paint can look much different on your walls than it does in our St. Louis store. Keep in mind that most colors look slightly darker when dry than wet, as well.
