Color Consultation

The most important decision you will make during your painting project, is your color choice.  Using tools, such as color wheels, or website programs to view color options is a great place to start.  However, choosing a color with these tools alone, will likely produce disappointing results.

Color clarity is the process of helping you choose the right color, using the correct product and sheen for your project.  Colors vary within each product line, sheen, with every paint company.

While using a professional color consultant or interior designer can be useful, we believe that each person has a feel for/understands their own tastes and can choose colors for themselves without the added costly expense of hiring outside help.

We can’t tell you how many times the painter has had to repaint rooms and sometimes a complete house after a designer has chosen the colors for their client. Painters always say “please don’t kill the messenger”.

We work with many reputable professional paint companies helping them and their customers get a true look at the colors they will be putting on their houses.

Putting sample colors directly on your walls in squares or on the outside of your house creates a millage/thickness of paint difference which can show through and be seen after the final painting has been completed.

We will send you the actual paint from a gallon can in the actual product and sheen on a drawdown sheet of paper so that you can view the colors in different lights and against each other while making your a color decision. We use the actual paint from a gallon of quality paint for our samples giving you the most accurate samples available.  Most paint supply companies have/use color quart samples which come in a cheap product that doesn’t represent the actual product that you will be using on your project.  Also, many paint color formulas do not breakdown accurately into a quart formula. Which in turn does not give you an accurate rendition of what the color actually will look like on your final project.

If you have an idea of the color that you would like we can help you choose color samples based on what is currently popular and have been proven through many projects completed.
