Paints at Lees

Choosing the right colour of paint for your home can be a daunting task. Not only that, there are also a wide range of paint finishes; the same color can look completely different based on the finish, from matt to glossy. The most commonly used paints for interior painting are emulsion, eggshell, satinwood and gloss.

We stock a range of beautiful Mylands paints at our Grimsby showroom.

Paint finishes

Important factors to consider when choosing a paint finish are washability and durability. When choosing a paint finish you should consider the purpose of the area: some areas of the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and basements have a higher humidity. Satin and semi-gloss paints have a higher sheen value, meaning they provide a harder finish that proves more moisture resistant.

The most commonly used paint finishes for most rooms are emulsion for the walls and ceilings and gloss or satinwood for painting of wood. Using the highest quality paints will ensure you have the best paint finish that is washable and long lasting.

Colour Palettes

Your choice of colour palette can be a difficult decision when refurbishing your home. Choosing two or more tones of the same colour offers a calming appeal that is easy to live with or maybe you could consider combining a main, neutral shade with an accent colour. Neutral shades of paints can appear both warm or cool, depending on what they’re paired with, so you can go as adventurous as you like with accent colours. Feature walls offer a great way to indulge in accent shades.

Magazines and catalogs have always been the staple of decorating inspiration with thousands of pages of inspiration on the Internet. Social media sites, such as Pinterest and Instagram offer up-to-date colour inspiration. Pinterest is also great for creating inspiration boards for your favourite ideas that can be kept in one place.
