you may be wondering about painting the samples on boards. I know some designers like sample boards, and it might work out ok for them, but I personally don’t like them. I find the boards not as accurate as putting paint directly up on your walls. Plus, when they’re on your actual walls, in different spots around your room, you can really live with them for a bit and see how they look anytime of day or night in multiple areas. It is the most accurate way to see the colors without actually painting the room fully. Additionally, it not only costs more to make up a whole bunch of sample boards, it’s an incredibly wasteful method. Unless you plan on always re-using the boards, but even so, they will eventually need to be tossed in the trash.So now you know my tried and true method for selecting the perfect paint color for clients. It truly is a process! Although it takes a few days, it’s well worth the effort and comfort in the end knowing you are not relying on blind faith and prayers that your color choice will look good. Please let me know if you try my method and how it turns out! I’d love to hear about it or any painting experience you think this could’ve helped you with.
