Paint & Lighting – How it Interacts

Light dramatically affects paint color. Have you ever chosen paint samples you liked in the store, only to put them on the wall and see them dry with shades or undertones that previously didn’t show up?

Whether natural light, or artificial, these sources will change how the color looks in your room, with some colors, such as khaki, sage, and taupe, being more impacted than others.

Another thing to consider is the direction the room faces. North, South, East, and West-facing rooms all experience different outcomes due natural lighting. Your paint finish and furniture can even further affect this change, so there are many variables to consider. For more detailed information on how light interacts with paint, check out this TrueValue article, How Light Affects Paint Color.

If you’re overwhelmed by all of this, you’re not alone! We regularly work with local interior designers, and many of our customers elect for their color-consultation services as part of their painting update. If you’re interesting in updating the colors of your home, but don’t know where to start, schedule a free estimate through our website. We’ll reach out and discuss options, and connect with our interior design partners, if you choose.

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT |
NEWTOWN SQUARE

Mike Jasinski Painting just painted my downstairs, 2 story foyer, staircase and outside entrance and I’m thrilled with the results! The owner, Mike, was excellent with communication and follow-up throughout the entire process. His crew, mainly Brian, was professional, reliable, respectful of my home and meticulous. Every crack and crevice was sanded and repaired until my walls looked brand new. Can’t say enough and would give more stars if I could.
-Kristen P.

This Newtown Square home was recently updated with Sherwin-Williams’s City Loft 7631, a very light-toned neutral. The color sits somewhere in the middle of a gray and beige, and adds a soft, cozy feel to any space. In this home in particular, the excellent natural light paired beautifully with the color choice, brightening up the living area.

For this project, we also refreshed an older, stained handrail on the foyer staircase. The process included priming and painting with an oil-based high-gloss black. This update was a perfect finishing touch to an already impressive entryway into this customer’s beautiful home.
