Looking to Repaint? How to Pick the Right Premium Interior Paint For Your Home

Choosing interior paint can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. At Evolving Elements, we understand that there are lots of options to consider from colour to finish and then, of course, quality.  Our premium interior paint continually sets industry standards for quality, performance and value. This is because we focus on innovation, research and development of new products with a continued commitment to create the best option for professionals.

If you’re stuck in the process of choosing the right colour or type of paint for the inside of your home, you’re not alone. Many people find it daunting to commit to a colour or a finish. There are a few ways that you can approach this big decision.

We find that most people begin by selecting their colour.

Warm or Cool?

The easiest way to do this is to select a trending colour – whites and off-whites are always the most popular choice. A simple trick to figuring out if your space is best suited to a cool or warm toned white is to consider the age and style of your home. More contemporary or industrial spaces fit a cooler white, that have more of a blue tinge to them. Victorian style or older spaces with period character sit more comfortably with a warmer white.

Colour-matching systems have improved to the point where you can get to the colour you crave in just about any brand. At Evolving Elements, we can match any colour swatch from any brand – even from sample colours of paint – with perfect results every time.

Once you’ve settled on a colour, you can now focus on finding the best sheen for the job.

Generally there are two types of paint to consider:

Flat Paints

  • Absorb light
  • Colours seem darker
  • Hide imperfections
  • The least stain-resistance finish
  • Best suited to low traffic areas

Glossy Paints

  • Reflect light
  • Colours look brighter
  • There are several levels of glossiness

Semi Gloss

  • Shiny finish
  • Stands up to stains
  • Easy to clean, but may dull when scrubbed
  • Ideal for kitchen and bathrooms, windowsills and woodwork
  • Requires a smooth, well-prepped surface

Our ratings make it easy to tell how well a paint hides what’s underneath it, how smooth the finish will be and the degree to which the finished product resists stains, scrubbing, gloss change, sticking, mildew and fading.
