Behr paints has put together a wonderful site that covers everything you will need to know about painting your space. I found this site just the other day and spent some time collecting information on exactly what this site offers you. Here is what you will find:
- Talks about the color wheel
- Assists you in finding complementary colors to the color you pick
- Gives you facts about colors
- Preview your color by ordering a sample (yes, you have to pay for this)
- Inspirational, artistic, emotional, fashionable, historical aspects of paint
- Different sheens, when and where to use them (semi-gloss, flat, eggshell....etc)
- They offer a calculator. No more guessing. Plug in your measurements and they will tell you how much paint to buy.
- Facts and info about interior and exterior paint.
- Step by step directions on all the faux finishes
- What paints to use for all your different projects (paint for cement, wood.....etc)
- You can pick your paint color and paint it onto a "virtual" furnished room to see exactly what your paint job will look like when completed. I love this feature the best.
