Your living room, bedroom or kitchen needs a little updating. But is it really worth the investment in quality paint or can inexpensive paint do the trick too?

3 Determining Factors

  • In painting, a good result depends first of all on 3 determining factors:
  • The preparation for your support
  • The appropriate painting material (adapted to the support and the type of painting)
  • The quality of your paint

In this post, we reveal to you the secrets of real quality paint.

But what exactly do we mean by "quality" and how does quality paint differ from the inexpensive versions?

Low or higher price

The quality of paint is largely influenced by the amount and type of binder present in it. Inexpensive paint contains a little binder and is mostly made up of filler; it will therefore be porous. Which means the paint will be difficult to maintain. On the other hand, roller or brush strokes and any overlaps will remain visible after the paint dries.

Lower-quality, low-budget paint also contains more titanium dioxide, which does not benefit its hiding power or whiteness. Not really recommended if you don't want to apply several coats to achieve a good result.

The strengths of quality paint are:

Good covering power: With quality paint, you need fewer coats to cover your support entirely. And fewer layers also means less work. For murals, our goal is to achieve a perfect result with one base coat and one topcoat only.

Excellent adhesion: The quality paint guarantees you the best possible adhesion to the support. So the result of your paint job is not likely to flake off after a while.

Easy to apply: Good paint can be easily applied to the wall. It is flexible, easy to spread over the surface and gives a taut and uniform result.

Splash Free: A quality paint does not splash. It consists only of high-quality raw materials in a balanced dosage and is only released for sale after having undergone several application tests.

A uniform result: The variations in the absorption of the support are neutralized with a quality primer. This way, you won't see any differences in shine or overlaps or roll strokes.

Optimal Colour Accuracy: Quality paint has a higher colour accuracy than low-cost versions. The paint is the same shade as your sample, and with quality paint, there will be no difference in shade between, for example, the colour of the lacquer for your doors and that of the paint for your walls.

Easy maintenance : a quality paint is easier to maintain, due to the fact that its binder is of better quality and present in greater quantity, which gives the paint greater longevity. In addition, the paint is less sensitive to damage resulting from all kinds of contact. 

Warning: there is still a difference in terms of maintenance within quality paints. Thus, glossy paint will be even more washable than matt paint.

There is no doubt that quality paint has a host of advantages! You will pay a little more for it, but you will be sure to get a beautiful and lasting result.
