White paint has been a popular choice for interiors. Whether you are aiming for a traditional or modern look, the color can perfectly suit any style or design. However, white isn’t simply white. You would probably be surprised at the various considerations that you need to make in order to find the perfect kind of white for a specific room. Here are a few tips from J Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build, one of the area’s leading design-build firms, to help you select the right white paint:
Get to Know the Different Kinds of White
It may seem incredible to think that white could have different hues, but white paints really do come in a range of bluish, yellowish, reddish and greenish undertones. The differences can be a little subtle, so you might want to take a trip to your local paint shop and ask for help in spotting and comparing various kinds of white.
Check the Lighting in the Room
Once you have enlisted professional home remodeling services, your contractor will likely encourage you to assess the lighting in your home. Check both the natural and artificial lighting in the room and see how this impacts your walls. For a room filled with natural light, pure white would be the best choice. But if the room has less natural light and more artificial light, white paint with a little bit of pigment would work better.
Test the Paint in Your Home
Make sure to test the paint in the actual room where it will be used. You don’t have to paint the entire wall to see what a certain hue of white would look like. You can use a movable swatch or paint swatches as big as you can and in different areas of the room. Keep in mind that colors can shift depending on their proximity to windows and artificial light.
