Paint is used to protect (metal to retard corrosion, and a building to help protect it from the elements), preserve, decorate (add festive trim to a room’s interior by adding color) or add functionality to an object or surface by covering it with a pigmented coating (by modifying light reflection or heat radiation off a surface and the use of color to identify hazards or to identify the function of an equipment). Physically, paint is a mixture of four important elements: Pigments, Additives, Binders and Solvents.
One of the most often asked query by my clients is about Paints. The incredible choice and colours that are available in today’s market will confuse anyone. As an Architect, practising in Bangalore, I use my practical experience gained over 20 years to advise my clients. I trust brands that have been in the market for years because I see that the maintenance costs are much less compared to cheaper, unknown brands. Even in the choice of colours, I prefer to guide my clients to the following pages, wherein I have discussed the colour wheel, colour groups and themes, their effects on our well-being:
