The interior paint pros at Consumer Reports offer solutions to four common painting mistakes. You’ll be able to fix flubs without much fuss.
If you have repaired your ceiling and need to touch up the paint, or if you want to repaint a section of it for another reason, you need to match the existing ceiling colour.
High ceilings, open rooms and uncomplicated design is everyone’s goal but we live in real houses that sometime come in less than perfect packages. If you are face with a necessary but somewhat unsightly structure or surface to paint, how do you handle it?
It’s always a good idea to save some leftover paint. But if you don’t store that paint properly, you might find that the paint has deteriorated to a point that you can’t use it.
By exploring tone-on-tone combinations, such as the grey blue of Denim Drift, our Colour of the Year, with a rich, dark blue, you can create a look that has a wonderful sense of unity and a space that feels just right. You can then add to this effect with the playful use of hand-painted shapes, stripes and fades, as well as different patterns and textures.
