Also Alexey Eliseev shared advice on the choice of paint:
- At the heart of any renovation of the premises should always beBe a composition in which color can be a binding element for other materials. Choosing the right color is more difficult than choosing a paint. So first of all find the right color, and then pick up the paint.
- When choosing a color, you need to purchase itProbes, preferably from three to five pieces. One is the main one that fits your composition, one or two probes are lighter and darker than the main one and one or two probes are warmer or colder than the main one. The task of the probes is to help see the future premises on site. But even after receiving the probes, try to look at the veneers before preparing the walls for painting: paint them on separate sheets of cardboard and in no case put samplers on the walls, especially near.
- If your walls are already prepared for painting, then the acquisition of samplers does not make sense. Feel free to use the main color that suited your composition.
- When choosing paints, read the brochure: As a rule, for walls of premises it is offered up to three types of paints, differing degree of shine. The higher the gloss, the less marking and the more durable paint. The lower the gloss, the more matte and aesthetic. It is not recommended to use absolutely matte paints in the corridors, children's rooms, kitchen and bathroom.
