Everything You Need To Know About Low VOC Paint

Being health conscious is important if you want to live a long, healthy life. Making sure the air in the environment you live and breathe in is “clean” and of good quality is essential so as to help you to avoid medical diseases. When you choose a paint colour, it is recommended that you choose a VOC paint, which has less VOC, as VOC contains volatile organic compounds and deadly chemicals. Whether you need interior house paint or exterior house paint, low VOC paint is a safer option for not only your health, but also for the health of your loved ones. What Is Low VOC Paint? VOC is defined as Volatile Organic Compounds. VOC paint is hazardous to both your health and the environment and can cause diseases over time. Some of the health problems, which may be associated with VOCs, are: Respiratory diseases, Allergies, and Immune system disorders. Low VOC paints are paints that contain volatile organic compounds at low levels. The paint is made from natural products such as chalk, pine trees, milk proteins, mineral oils and clay. It is a safer and more effective form of house painting. These paints are also safer for children and pregnant women who are prone to respiratory disease or those with weakened immune systems. House Painting With Low VOC Paint Low VOC paint is available as a substitute for VOC paint found in luxury house paint. They are water-soluble, less caustic and are less toxic than heavy VOC paint. It is paint that will not only not harm your family, but it is also a worthwhile painting solution as low VOC paint offers the same high-quality coverage as high VOC acrylic paint. Choosing a low VOC paint is the smart decision to help you protect your family from the potential health risks associated with the constant exposure to VOC paint. This is also useful for buildings such as schools and hospitals, which are meant to be a safe environment for children and people with compromised immune systems. Just as regular paint, it comes in many colours. Warrior Paints has a fantastic colour range of VOC paint together with our colour matching expertise.

3 Mistakes People Make When Choosing Paint Colours

3 Mistakes People Make When Choosing Paint Colours

Need to buy luxury house paint? Avoid these common mistakes that people make when choosing paint colours: Only Looking At Colour Strips Before You Choose A Colour While a colour strip is a handy tool to have when narrowing down your options between different colours, the sample is much too small to get an accurate idea of what it will look like on your walls. Another problem with colour strips is that the colour you are considering is too close to other shades and tones. You need to see the colour in isolation in order to make a well-informed decision. Not Observing The Colour In Your Own Environment It’s not possible to make a mental imprint of the colour you saw in a showroom and carry it home and onto your walls in your head. Everything from the amount of natural light your room gets to the colour of your curtains, furniture and finishes can have an impact on the final colour that you will see on your walls. Your best bet is to choose your favourite colours and paint them on sections of your interior walls that you intend to paint. Observe the colour over a few days so that you can get a sense of the shade and tone during the day and at night time. Using Online Tools To Find The Perfect Colour Technology and the digital revolution continue to change virtually every industry, and the building environment and interior design sectors are no different. Many paint suppliers offer online colour matching and colour selection tools, which makes it seem like you can redecorate your home from the comfort of your desk. The problem with this approach is that a screen can’t accurately display the colours of the paint. The shade that you see on the screen will probably be very different from the paint colour that ends up getting delivered to your house.

Should you paint before or after you move into your new home?

Should you paint before or after you move into your new home?

Moving into a new home can be very exciting and decorating is a big contributor to this excitement. While most people think that the smart thing to do is paint the interior of your home before you move in, waiting until you’ve moved in also makes a lot of sense. It’s true that a house painting job will be easier if your rooms aren’t filled with furniture, rugs and personal belongings, but if your goal is to create a truly cohesive space, then you need a bit of time to settle in and take in your new surroundings. You may have an idea of the paint colours that you want to use in various rooms, but it’s easy to forget that there is a very wide variety of paint shades, hues and tones. The amount of natural and artificial light a room gets throughout the day, for example, can have a big impact on the way that a paint tint complements your artwork, flooring and furniture. Many interior designers advise clients to first move their belongings into a home before they pick a paint colour. Paint manufacturers such as Warrior Paint can guide you through the process of investigating the various interior house paint colours that can meet your needs.

How to Paint Wall Mouldings and Trim Like a Pro

You have your wall colours sorted. But now it’s time to paint the trim and mouldings. These areas can be tricky to paint. Not only because they are out of reach, but they sometimes include moulded details. They need to be painted carefully because they often contrast with wall colour – and an uneven finish is not what you want to achieve! Our painting tips for trim and mouldings should help you to take some of the hassles out of your home decor work, for a better and more professional finish: Clean and Sand the Trim Thoroughly Cleaning before you paint anything is an absolute must, but especially important with moulding, where dust and dirt can easily get trapped in small crevices and details. Sugar soap is the best pre-painting cleaning agent. Use a scrubbing brush (or even an old toothbrush) to make sure not a speck of dust remains. Sanding is also vital. For your acrylic paint to adhere well, a slightly roughened surface is required. Use Masking Tape to Define Edges If you choose a paint colour for your trim that is contrasted with your wall colour, you don’t want any of the trim colour to end up on the wall or windows, do you? You can ensure a nice, clean contrasted edge with masking tape. Paint over the masking tape, and when your paint is dry, peel the tape off carefully. You’ll be left with a nice sharp line, and no paint on the walls. Many Light Coats When house painting it is always better to layer many thin coats of colour for a lasting and even finish. This is even more true when it comes to trims and moulding. You don’t want to use too much paint that will fill up any moulded details and detract from the finish. Using thick coats can also take a very long time to dry, and in the case of patterned mouldings, end up looking clumpy. Warrior Paints stocks a wide variety of luxury house paints for interiors and exteriors. For more information and other house painting tips, please contact us...

Here’s What 2018’s Colour Trends Look Like!

The Pantone colour trend predictions for 2018 are out – and boy are they gorgeous! Trending colours are mostly neutrals combined with eye-catching bright accents – it’s time to be brave with your decor and interior house paint choices! While exterior house paint colour choices will always lean towards more versatile colours such as white or beige, you can still have fun outdoors with these colour trends, by painting outside furniture in bright colours, or incorporating accent colours into cushions. Pantone have developed 8 unique palettes. They have given them enticing names such as Resourceful, Playful, Verdure and Tech-nique. Here are just a few of the highlights as well as our colour painting tips on what to watch out for in 2018: Complementary Blue and Orange Nothing quite catches the eye like blue and orange. And these 2 colours look fantastic together. For a look that is contemporary without being overwhelming, stick to blue and grey-blue walls complemented with orange and red tones in accent furnishings and cushions. A Touch of Minion Yellow Yes, we said Minions. When you’re choosing a paint colour and you want to pick something that is highly fashionable, then you should know that yellow is very on trend at the moment. It should not be made overpowering. Rather, select a base palette that is neutral – either blue greys or warm beiges, and make your yellow accents pop by using them sparingly. Pink Power If you’re choosing a luxury house paint, why not choose a luxury colour that oozes elegance? Barbie pink is out, and subtle shades are in. If you want to incorporate pink, think dusty rose and blush, with accents of berry shades. Sage green and rose gold make fantastic accent colours to use with a pink colour scheme. Brights And Whites Turquoise, pink and purple – balanced with bright white – makes for an interior house paint palette that is bright and almost seems to sparkle. Combine with fresh clean neutrals (no dusty tones) for the best effect. Warrior Paints stocks a wide variety of luxury interior and exterior house paint.
