Tips for Buying Paint
Before you head to a home improvement store to buy paint for the interior or exterior of your home, there are a few tips you should keep in mind.For painting the interior of your home, remember that any color you choose will look different during the day than it will at night with artificial light.
Take home 3 paint swatches from the store; one being your first choice of color, one a shade lighter and another a shade darker. This way you will be able to better decide the shade that will give the best result with various lighting.
For exterior painting, it is best to do so in temperatures of 55 - 85 degrees F., avoiding days of high humidity to prevent the possibility of paint blistering.Whether you are painting the inside or outside of your home, purchase a little more paint than you actually need for any touch-up work down the road.
