Several factors decide how long the interior paint will last. These include the quality of interior paint used, the system of application followed, the level of abuse it has been exposed to and also the general upkeep and maintenance of the wall. A good quality emulsion, applied following the correct system should last between five to seven years. Indigo Paints offers a range of interior emulsions that have a smooth finish and is easy to wash and maintain.
Generally, interior walls are painted at a frequency of 3-6 years. It largely depends on the type of Interior emulsion applied. Washable and stain resistant interior emulsions tend to look fresh for longer and can be cleaned and maintained for longer periods. You can choose from the wide range of interior wall paints offered by Indigo Paints to achieve the perfect look for your walls.
Various types of paints are available for interiors, such as interior emulsions, acrylic distemper, synthetic distempers and interior enamel paint.
Interior emulsions are generally categorised based on properties like stain resistance, ease of cleaning, sheen levels etc. Distempers are more conservative form of paint and has lesser durability than emulsions. Enamel paints are generally used for painting of wood and metal surfaces.
It depends on the taste and choice of an individual. However, the advantages of paint include the ease of application, cost involved, the ease of repainting / maintenance etc.
Surface defects like undulations are less visible when walls are coated with paint. Common problems like leaks, chalking etc. tend to affect the life of a wall paper and can only be addressed using paint.
It is common to paint the ceiling in pure, brilliant white to create a feeling of generous space. However, contemporary designs do not conform to this thought and use the same shade for walls and ceilings to create a uniform look for the room.
General sheen levels offered include Matt, soft sheen, rich sheen, glossy. It is up to each customer and their taste to select the level of sheen.
A few points to note however will be, if the surface has not been levelled properly, then higher the gloss greater the chances of surface undulations being visible when light falls on the surface.
Generally, with higher sheen levels the hiding property of paints tends to be inferior, especially for darker colours.
