Choosing the right paint

Choosing the right paint

Always buy paints from a well-known or "proven" company, e.g. Kabe. Cheap paints not proven, especially emulsion, they are less effective and usually less durable.

It will be best, if you immediately estimate the consumption of a given paint and buy all the necessary amount from the same delivery, to avoid minimal differences in color.

This is especially important when ordering paints prepared by the supplier on special request. It is allowed to combine paints of the same type, provided, however, that they come from the same company. If you prepare a paint mixture yourself, write down exactly the amounts and names of the pigments used.

Advertising catalogs with color samples presented by manufacturers rarely give a full idea of ​​this, how the selected paint will look in a given room. The interaction of the colors of the ceiling and walls can intensify the shade even by 50%. Always choose a shade taking into account the other color elements in the room.

Regardless of the type of paint you choose, you will also need to choose the right type of primer.

It is an equally important activity, like choosing the right covering paint. It is best to use a primer to cover the porous plaster surface, also providing greater adhesion to metal surfaces. There are different types of land, suitable for wood, from synthetic materials, plaster, bricks, concrete and metal.

Apply a layer of primer paint on the primed surface, which will allow you to reduce the amount of cover paint coats. remember, that you must never use emulsion paints on metal surfaces; these are water-based paints that can cause corrosion.
