- There are many types of paints. Every brand has its own manufacturing methods and also some differences in compositions. But broadly, there are two types of paints. One is oil based and the other is water based. There are other mediums but these two are the most widely available and used among all brands. Oil based is the older option and water based paints have been around for a while now. There are advantages of both. There are differences in price, quality and the eventual impact. Some homeowners like oil based painting because they have a better sheen. Some homeowners like water based painting because they dry quicker and they don’t have as strong an odor. There are even paints available now with low and no odor. You can choose what you want depending on your personal preference. From the perspective of a painting company, we do ascertain your use of the room, the construction of the walls and ceilings, your taste and finish chose. We usually adhere to client preferences but do make recommendations based on the specific circumstances.
- When you factor in the endless colors and shades, things can become very confusing. As a painting company, we don’t have any biases but as a homeowner you will always have a preference. From an aesthetic point of view, having designer shades or extremely complex shades on all walls can be a little too loud or lack the drama you are looking for. Opting for a combination of colors to have a pleasant contrast is a much better way to approach interior painting.
