SELECTING PAINT


How to Select Paint - House Painting

Selecting paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.

At Precise Image Painting we work with our customers in the Independence area to help them find the best paint for the job. Usually it starts with a number of questions, including:

  • What area do you want to be painted?
  • How visible is the area you want to be painted? Or, how frequently will it be seen by others?
  • How is the area used?
  • Do you have small children or pets?

We've not yet gotten to color, but these questions can help us determine the needed quality and sheen for your Independence area home. Homeowners will often want to have a higher quality paint used in a room more frequently visited by others, like the living room, than they will want to use in a child's bedroom. We'll take that into account.

Sheen

Sheen is important when you are thinking through how to select paint. You'll want to consider how the room is used and how much you like, or don't like, shiny walls. A gloss or semi-gloss paint can work well in kitchens and play rooms as they'll be easier to wipe clean and will stand up to some "abuse." But, if you don't like shiny walls you won't like gloss or semi-gloss paint.

You may love the effect a flat or matte paint can give a room, but it's important to know that they won't be quite as easy to clean.

Most customers will settle on satin or eggshell when house painting. Some people love, and always use, one or the other. Other customers will choose one or the other depending on the room, using satins for kitchens, bathrooms and children's rooms, and eggshell for living rooms, dining rooms and adult bedrooms.

Color

That brings us to what is most often the challenging part when selecting paint for a home - choosing the color. Again, we'll ask some questions:

  • What type of style is your house, or do you want it to be? Traditional, contemporary, modern, farmhouse?
  • What is your overall preference for paint - warm, cool, other?
  • How will the area to be painted tie in to the rest of your home?
  • Do you have a focal point for the room that you want to complement?
  • Do you want to stay on trend? Would you prefer your home to look timeless, or to match up to a specific style?

These are just some of the many questions that you'll want to ask yourself when you are considering color for house painting projects. We can say that most customers end up being most happy when they factor in the feeling they are trying to create throughout the house instead of just picking a color they like for one room.

It can be easy for homeowners to fall into the current trend. This can be fine if the trend is likely to hold up or if the homeowner doesn't mind painting their home every couple of years. Other customers will be focused on keeping within the style of their home or creating a timeless look that will hold up over many years.

Ultimately, you'll want to pick a color that works for you. Unless, of course, your purpose for painting is to sell the home or rent out the space. There are many, many resources for you to look at when considering how to select paint - here are a few good ones:

Ceilings

Many people choose to paint their ceilings white or off-white, and that's certainly fine. But, if you are considering a renovation, or just a different look for a room, don't forget about the ceiling. Painting the ceiling can help a room look bigger, or smaller. It can add a swanky feel or a touch of formality. Either way, homeowners usually find that painting a ceiling is much more difficult than painting a wall. So, give Precise Image Painting a call and we'll save you the time, as well as the aches and pains.

Other Surfaces

Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at Precise Image Painting we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

Reviews

We had 3 requirements for choosing a painting company: Local company, great reviews, competitive price. We found that with Precise Image Painting. Trey was the only one that actually showed up to provide an estimate. I had an idea of what the estimate would be by talking to co-workers who had their houses painted. He walked around house taking notes and asking questions. Went to his truck and 20 minutes later provided a printed estimate. My wife and I discussed it over the weekend and called Trey to schedule the job. Mother Nature caused some delays, but once the power wash is scheduled, things start moving quickly. Have your colors picked for house and trim because this crew works fast! Day 1 is all about prepping with caulking, replacing wood rot and any cosmetic work. Painting actually started towards end of day 1. Day 2 was all about painting. The crew works together well and understand their roles in the process. They are all very personable. Trey did final walk around finding minor issues and had them fixed. For painters, the job itself is their calling card. Trey had 3 of my neighbors ask for estimates on Day 2. I know from experience that it is hard to find good companies for projects around the house. Trey and Precise Image Painting is the company you want for your painting needs! Thanks to Trey and his crew!

My wife and I give him 5 stars. We would definitely highly recommend Trey and his team. Once project started they were quick and had everything done pretty much in 2 days. An outstanding job on the fascia repair and paint job.

Trey and his team did a fantastic job on my home exterior. Trey was professional, responsive and friendly from the very first call. He even came out to bid my project in the pouring rain rather than ask me to reschedule. He gave me a fair estimate and thoroughly explained all of the steps involved. He worked me into his schedule in a timely manner, exactly as he said he would. Trey called to let me know any time he and his guys would be at my house and the whole crew was great to work with. Job was completed in under 3 days, including power washing, and the work is exceptional. Several of my neighbors texted me commenting on how good my house was looking and how efficiently the guys were working. My house looks better than ever thanks to Trey and his team. I couldn't be happier with the experience and I will recommend Precise Image Painting to everyone I know.
