6 Things You Should Always Do Before Picking Out Paint.
  • Test Samples Throughout the Day

Most of us know that if you really want to be sure you love a color, you’ll need to not only pick up a paint chip, but also a jar of sample paint (or a stick-on colour swatch).


  • Brush Samples Right on the Wall

If the walls you’re painting are plaster, have any texture to them, or are covered in wood panelling or intricate moulding, it’s a good idea to brush a paint sample directly onto the surface.


  • Find the Right Finish

Once you know what colour you want, there’s still one more decision to make: what finish to get. In general, the higher the sheen, the more durable and easy-to-clean the painted surface will be.


  • Measure How Much Paint You Need

you can probably take an estimated guess whether you need one gallon or two, but if you want to avoid another trip to the paint store, measuring the room beforehand can help.


  • Decide if You Need Primer

Not every paint project necessitates primer, but if you’re going from a dark colour to a light colour, it’s a good idea.


  • Invest in High-Quality Tools

When it comes to painting, a high-quality brush and roller cover make all the difference. The cheapest brushes will lose bristles as you paint and leave obvious brushstrokes behind
