Best Paints for Touching Up Home Interiors

In our last blog entry, we talked about Evoque, Dow Chemical's brand new green paint technology that should prove highly useful in covering up stains. It got me thinking about what other paints are out there that are great for doing the same for homes. Here are a few to consider. 

Sherwin-Williams Duration Home & Emerald

Sherwin-Williams' Duration Home paint is essentially made for high-traffic areas in homes. So, kitchens, hallways, bathrooms, living rooms, etc. Not only is it durable, but washable. This is important because washing might just do the trick instead of a full-on touch up job. Assuming, of course, that kids haven't laid waste to the surfaces. I jest. 

Emerald an all-in-one paint and primer known for its stain-blocking technology. The color looks great, too, so no need to worry on that front. Either of these paints would do the trick. 

Valspar Signature

While perhaps not as well known to people outside of the paint business, Valspar is a very good brand of paint. Its Signature paint, in particular, is great for interiors. Not only does it offer a high-quality, high-aesthetic finish, but it's durable, washable, and stain-resistant. And, on the upside, the company's flat and matte paints are half the price of Benjamin Moore's. 

Benjamin Moore Aura

Benjamin Moore's Aura benefits from a rich type of color technology called Color Lock. Not only are the colors vibrant, but they offer a high degree of washability. This paint is also really good for touch-up projects. As noted above, it's a bit more expensive than other paints.

Clark + Kensington

This paint manufacturer only sells at Ace Hardware, so for those looking to do some DIY touch-ups, Clark + Kensington just might be the ticket. Consumer Reports rated it the best interior paint of 2013, outperforming Behr, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams and others. Like the other paints, its surface can be cleaned with relative ease and it's good for touch-ups. 

Other Thoughts

So many paints exist on the market, from big brands to boutique coatings, that they couldn't possibly be covered here. If you want to discuss paints that you've seen elsewhere (in homes or in stores), give us a call and we'd be happy to talk about your next touch-up project.
