Interior Painting


If you've commissioned interior painting to a painter or contractor, it’s a good idea to educate yourself on interior paints. An interior paint is different from an exterior one. Exterior paints contain more resin to resist moisture and a higher saturation of pigment. This is because exterior paints are exposed to harsher conditions and they must be protected from moisture and fading. Interior paints come in many varieties and each is suited to a different surface. 

Therefore it’s important to make sure that the right paint is being used for the right surface during interior painting.

Paint for high-traffic surfaces: 

Use high-gloss interior paint for areas which are exposed to harsher conditions and more traffic. High-gloss paint is hardy and doesn’t wear off easily because it contains a lot of resin. The resin hardens as the paint dries and makes the wall appear shiny, as well as provides the paint with the resilience that it needs. Therefore this paint is best for areas like the kitchen, bathroom and utility areas.

Paint for woodwork

– Semi-gloss interior paints are good for woodwork like door frames and window panes.

Paint for walls and ceiling:

A matte paint with low resin content is good for walls and ceiling. This is because the walls and ceiling will not go through too much wear and tear.

Latex paints: 

These have high water content and are not good for walls that already have a high-gloss finish. They also damage steel and raw wood. Therefore, be careful about using Latex paints on these surfaces. It is preferable to use these paints on stone or brick walls that have not been painted or primed.

Interior Painting


Rubber paints: 

These are matte paints with a high degree of durability. They are also easy to clean and maintain. These go best on unfinished stone or brick walls.

Alkyd Resin: 

These are also known as oil-based paints and are most popularly used as interior paints. They cannot be applied to untrimmed surfaces such as brick walls. However they can be applied to raw wood and any wall which has a layer of primer. These paints are also very quick to dry.

Texture paints: 

These are used to create certain patterns or textures on walls or ceilings. These are available as latex and alkyd paints. Some of these paints contain sandy particles to give texture. On the other hand, some of these paints come without particles but are given texture after painting. Some common tools used to create texture are rags, towels, rollers and trowels. Popular textures are stucco, sandy or customized textures depending on the tool used.

Now that you know a little about interior Painting, make an informed decision when choosing paints for your home or office.
