A paint for walls is a paint, which was designed taking into account basic characteristics required for walls coating.
One of the key features of the paint for walls is its high level of whiteness. A high level of whiteness helps visually enlarge the space and make the premise lighter. When you choose the paint for walls, you should take into account this parameter, because it influences how the room looks like and the atmosphere in the room.
Quality paint doesn’t splash when you apply it on walls. In their turn, non-quality paints splash a lot creating an inconvenient working atmosphere.
One more key feature is the covering ability of paint. This feature determines how effectively the paint covers a previous coat of paint or color on the wall. It is important to choose the paint with high covering ability, especially if you work with dark or non-homogeneous surfaces.
The other important aspect is the application rate. It determines, how much paint you need to coat a certain area of the wall. Correct calculation of the application rate helps you to avoid abnormal waste of the product and provide a homogeneous coating. Choose the paint with an optimal application rate for an effective use of resources.
Choosing the paint for walls is an important stage. Take into account peculiarities of the premise, lighting and your expectations. Pay attention to the brands, which are recommended by the market. Don’t forget about your financial capacity. But remember, the quality paint will be not the cheapest one. Cheap paints for walls usually have a bad covering ability and loose whiteness very quickly and the wall becomes yellowish.
If you have difficulties choosing a paint, then you can ask our technician, who will consult you and help with the right choice of paint.
One more trend in the wall design is the use of colors. Instead of traditional white, brave colors can add a unique and stylish look to your premise. Colors for the wall shall be in harmony with other elements of the interior. Colorful walls are not only a trend in design but also a way to create a unique and atmospheric interior. Colorful walls have an old history, which amounts to hundreds of years. They appeared as a trial to add an esthetic look to the interior and express individuality.
Before starting the application it is important to choose the right tools. The basics of them are a roller and a brush. Choose a roller with a medium-length pile, because it helps to spread homogeneously the paint. Use the brushes to coat the corners and details.
Prepare the working place before starting an application. Protect the floor with polyethylene film or with paper, to avoid drops of paint on it. We also recommend covering furniture and other parts of the interior, to protect them against paint splashes.
Start applying from the corners and framing with a brush for the precise outline. Then start applying the main area using the roller. Move in one direction, trying to avoid too thick coat and stretched paint marks.
For more detailed directions for the paint for walls, you can read in descriptions under every paint or ask our technician for a consultation.

Protection against splashes: Protect near areas against paint splashes using film or paper. This saves you time for cleaning.
