There are two types of paint. Deciding to use what type of paint should be based on 2 factors - the level of exposure to heat the surface is likely to get, and whether the application of gloss, will affect the intended design for decoration. According to paint companies, rooms that are meant for hard and rough use should be coated with the highest degree of gloss. While painting a living room, or a room of importance, choose the lowest levels of gloss as it will generate a far more calm feeling and gentle finish.

Popular companies generate the look and feel of different colours in their ads. The truth is, each colour in its own right is good. Now as far as application is concerned, you have to choose the one that suits you best. A hi-tech paint is long-lasting and resistant to heat. Paint companies make these paints to be durable, with a ceramic pigment formula. Hence, they are easy to apply and last longer.

Let's compare oil paint and water paint. The former takes longer to dry because of the presence of additives. Oil paint makes the surface look glossy and has a harder finish, but it requires chemicals to clean it up. Paint companies call oil paint 'enamel'. This is because of its hard finish and durable qualities. Enamel paint comes in both glossy and semi-glossy finishes. It is used more often to doors and window frames. However, it can lose its colour over a period of time.

Water paint, on the other hand, does not have the same finish as oil paint. It dries quickly, as a result of evaporation. The ease of drying and cleaning-up makes it a quite popular choice. It depends from person to person what is best suited for the particular application.

Then we have primer, which is used as part of the painting process. It is needed, in addition to paint any wall. Primer is also oil-based and water-based. It is advised by paint companies to use oil-based primer, with alkyd house paint, and water primer with latex paint.

Speciality paints are manufactured using additives. These additives make the fire-proof, anti-condensing, and also make it resistant to mould attack. It is for these reasons that it is a popular choice to paint kitchens. In fact, it is quite clear that it is the suitable for kitchens.
