Select the Perfect Paint Color and Finish for a Modern Makeover

To achieve a modern makeover, it’s important to consider the right paint color and finish for your interior. Neutral colors like beige and gray have always been popular choices for interior paint colors. In 2023, neutral paint colors are trending toward warmer grays, greige tones, creamy whites, and shades closer to beige. These colors bring warmth and a clean, modern feel to your space. They work well in both traditional and contemporary settings, providing versatility and a fresh look.

When selecting a finish, consider the following options:

  • Flat/Matte Finish: This finish has the least amount of shine when dry. It works wonders for concealing imperfections on the surface you’re painting. However, it has a dry texture and doesn’t clean well. Therefore, it’s best to avoid using a matte finish in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms.

  • Eggshell/Satin Finish: This finish provides a slight luster without reflecting much light, resulting in walls with a subtle sheen. Walls with an eggshell finish resemble the texture of an actual eggshell, making them easier to clean than a flat finish. It’s an excellent choice for high-traffic areas.

  • Semigloss/High-Gloss Finish: This finish offers a significant amount of sheen, giving your walls a glossy appearance. It’s durable and moisture-resistant, so it’s the perfect finish for kitchens and bathrooms. However, the high-sheen factor may make imperfections on the wall more visible. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure a smooth wall surface before applying this finish.

When selecting a finish, consider the specific requirements of each room. For areas prone to spills or dirt, opt for a more durable and washable finish.

By considering both the color and finish, you can breathe new life into your home with a modern and inviting ambiance. Good luck with your home decor project!
