That soft peachy paint and deep pink sofa are reflected in the printed armchair at the head of the dining table, and also mimic the rosy glow of the pendant light. The color scheme was inspired by a photograph taken of the family in London during spring when the city was veiled in cherry blossoms.

The traditional, neutral furniture in this room designed by Balsamo Antiques and Interior Design make a minimal visual impact so the moody colors, artwork, light fixtures, and other decorative accents can stand out.

Ann Pyne worked with decorative painter Arthur Fowler to create a contrasting geometric pattern on the walls. "I think of the puzzle-like shapes as a metaphor—it's a game of fitting all these disparate 'treasures' into a graphically coherent whole," she says.

Channel a lush tropical oasis, as Thomas Jayne and William Cullum did, with this fresh color. In a living room where the paint stretches all the way up to the rafters, the hue changes depending on the way the light hits it, shifting between sharp mint and soft sea foam green.

Designer Garrow Kedigian defines a neutral as "anything that isn't jarring," which is a super helpful way to reframe things if cream, white, or gray simply isn't cutting it in your living room and you can't figure out why. Certain spaces just call for something outside the box, whether it's because of an architectural style, light exposures, or existing furniture. Here, the walls are painted Benjamin Moore's Rattan.

Nothing is more transformative than swathing your rooms in a new hue, so if you’re in the mood to start a project, you’ll need the best interior wall paint on the market. To lead you in the right direction, we tapped interior designer Becky Shea for her expert opinion. "One of my favorite paint brands is Benjamin Moore, they offer such a range in color and what you can do with the color is also out of this world," she tells House Beautiful.

Here’s the thing about paint, there’s a lot of it. And color aside, you need to consider other factors when choosing your shade—namely, finish. The ones to know are flat, matte, eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss. Don't stress, the finishes aren’t room-specific, so feel free to glaze your walls in any paint that suits your fancy.

The same goes for color in that there are no rules. That said, one thing to keep in mind is that darker shades tend to make a space look smaller, so you may want to avoid painting your powder room navy blue. Or you can always experiment with different tones. "I've played around and made colors darker and lighter by diluting or enhancing the pigmentation," Shea adds.

All in all, before you commit to an entire gallon, start by ordering a sample so you can see what the color would look like in your specific space. The best thing about painting is that it’s one of the easiest projects to master. You just need a paint roller, brushes, a tray, painter’s tape, and, of course, paint. Ready to transform your space?

What is the best paint finish for interiors?

There is no best finish when it comes to paint. That said, glossy paint is a bit more durable than matte, so if you think your walls may get a bit weathered, go the gloss route.

What is the best paint brand?

When it comes to choosing the best paint brand, the most important factor to consider is whether or not the paint contains any toxic chemicals. Companies like Benjamin Moore, Farrow & Ball, and Lick all create colors that are completely toxin-free, making them the best of the best.

Why trust us?

Becky Shea is the principal designer and founder of New York City-based (BS/D) and pays as much attention to details like paint as she does big-ticket elements like furniture. You can trust that this expert knows all there is to know about the best paint for walls.

The best wall paint: review, properties and comparison.

At the final stage of the renovation, we are faced with the task of giving the walls a beautiful look. Someone chooses wallpaper, some prefer decorative plaster, but most paint the walls. And it's true, it's fast, stylish and good! The question arises: how to choose paint so that it satisfies you both in terms of quality and price? Let's try to figure this out together. We consider only harmless, water-dispersion paints. nine0005

  • Paint classes. What do they tell us?
  • Gloss level and unique color features, which one is best for walls?
  • Best wall paint selection chart

Paint classes, which one is better to paint?

There are always certain factors that you should pay attention to when choosing a paint. These include wet abrasion class, coverage and wear resistance class, gloss level, unique features and of course price. The buyer can always find all quality indicators in the technical sheets for the products. However, we add on our own that the standards of each country may differ from each other and it is best to judge by the generally accepted European DIN classification (Well, or just check with us). Let's get back to the topic and go through the meaning of these characteristics:

  • Wet Abrasion Rating is a measure of a coating's ability to withstand mechanical stress with water. It is determined in laboratory conditions by the degree of wear of the coating as a result of simulating the washing procedure. The highest is class 1, the lowest is class 5. Therefore, if this indicator is important for you (and on the walls this is one of the determining factors), then choose 1 or 2 class.

Where is the best place to use paint with this grade? nine0026 class 1 - for medical institutions and for rooms with cleaning with disinfectants. Class 2 - for walls and ceilings in bathrooms, kitchens and other rooms with high humidity, able to withstand repeated wet cleaning. Class 3 - for walls and ceilings in the interior of residential premises, wet cleaning of the painted surface will also not hurt. Grade 4 - paint for ceilings. Grade 5 - the cheapest paint, which is very similar to classic whitewash and has the appropriate quality. nine0005

Wear resistance class - a physical property that characterizes the resistance of the paintwork to abrasion, is one of the main parameters that determine the durability of the paint. This indicator is related to the wet abrasion class, but wider. So it will also include temperature loads, adhesion with the previous layer and wear of the material over time.

Spreading power class - more important for work and consumption calculations. This is an indicator that characterizes the ability of the paint to overlap the existing surface. The lower the class, the better. As a rule, paints with good wear resistance also have good hiding power. nine0005

Gloss level and unique paint features, which one is best for walls?

Gloss level is the ability of the paint to shine, reflect light. But gloss is not only glitter. Glossy paints contain more resin than pigment, while matte paints do the opposite. The coating that forms the glossy paint is easy to clean and more durable. This type of paint is ideal for rooms with high humidity. You can get a semi-gloss or even a semi-matte paint that is suitable for the bath and will please you for a long time. Pure matte paints are not intended for surfaces that need constant washing. Therefore, they are usually more often used for ceilings. A significant advantage of matte paint is its ability to hide defects on any surface. While glossy paint will only emphasize the slightest scratch or unevenness. nine0005

Here it is important to add that resistant matte paints exist, and we will consider many of them below. However, the cost of their production is high, which is why such paints are not cheap for the buyer.

The unique features of are those features that the paint can boast of, which makes it stand out from the rest. For example, universality for walls and ceilings, double coverage, antiseptic properties, high degree of whiteness, anti-allergic properties, etc. If a number of specific properties are important to you, it is better to ask a store specialist +375(29)230-00-80 MTS or +375(44)597-00-80 A1.

  • How to choose wall paint and what to look for?

    The degree of resistance of the coating to aggressive environmental factors depends on the quality of the selected paint.

    When selecting paint, they are guided by the following criteria :

    1. What kind of work is paint intended for? Wall paints are exterior and interior (interior). Compositions of the first type have increased resistance to precipitation and fading in the sun.
    2. Which room will be painted ? For the bathroom or kitchen, special types of paint are used with increased resistance to abrasion, moisture and high temperatures. Latex and silicone emulsions have such properties. For the bedroom and living room, bright and abrasion-resistant acrylic paints are suitable. Water-based compositions are environmentally friendly, so they are perfect for a children's room. nine0008
    3. Which invoice to choose ? According to this criterion, all paints are matte, semi-matte, semi-gloss and glossy. Matte does not shine, so it perfectly hides surface defects. Semi-gloss have a barely noticeable shine and have increased resistance to abrasion, so they can be safely washed. Semi-gloss emulsions can be washed, so they are great for nurseries, kitchens and bathrooms. Glossy paint is the most brilliant and resistant to abrasion, but you need to work with it carefully, because it emphasizes all the surface irregularities. nine0008

    Also, when choosing a paint, pay attention to such an indicator as hiding power . It depends on him whether the emulsion can paint over the old coating layer. The higher this indicator, the fewer layers of paint will have to be applied to obtain a perfectly even tone.

    Another important factor is the abrasion resistance of . This characteristic is especially important if the walls will be painted in a high traffic area.
