Do you know which material is indispensable in repair work? That’s right, paint for finishing walls, ceilings, or furniture. It helps to bring colour into the home, and to be sure of its quality and durability, it is important to choose it as responsibly as possible. Our partner in Cahul, Gebhardt Plus Company, an expert in paints, and other building materials, is ready to tell us what to pay attention to when buying paint.

So, let’s see what matters when choosing paint:

  1. Before buying paint, it is important to determine where we will use it – indoors or outdoors. Exterior paint is used for painting exterior facades, garden furniture, fencing or gates, and must be resistant to sunlight, humidity, and temperature fluctuations. In turn, interior paint is more resistant to scratching and mechanical deformation, but also available in a wider range of colours.
  2. Depending on their structure, paints can be: water-based or oil-based, alkyd (used for bathrooms and wet areas), acrylic, silicone, and so on. There are plenty of them. The point is that each type of paint is suitable for different purposes, and to make the right choice, don’t hesitate to ask a consultant for help. The Gebhardt’s ones are very receptive.
  3. Another important aspect of paints is their gloss level. You can choose between gloss, semi-gloss, matte, and semi-matte paints. Of course, preferences are individual. Matte paints are most often used for ceilings and walls, and glossy ones – for furniture and ornaments.
  4. If you want hard-wearing paint, also pay attention to the degree of resistance to smudging and staining, coverage power (as a rule, two coats should completely cover the old surface), but also the antibacterial protection, and mould resistance characteristics.
  5. Finally, you can think about the right shade for your space and your preferences. To make our choice easier, manufacturers provide us with complete colour palettes, with specifications for each colour. Today, the range of colours is wider than ever. Sometimes it’s hard to choose even the perfect shade of white. For the most balanced design, experts recommend combining the shade of the walls with the general style of the room, the color of the furniture, or other objects in the room.
