TIPS ON CHOOSING THE BEST COLOR

      A simple but effective way to figure out which color/color scheme is best for you is, go to your local Home Depot or paint store such as Sherwin Williams. Then buy the miniature inexpensive paint cans they sell for sampling as well as a couple of cheap throwaway brushes and take them home. When you get home you can take paint and make a little 12X12 square on your wall with each color and get a feel for what it will look like in different lighting, décor, etc. As for sheens we recommend Semi-Gloss on the Trim and Flat on the Walls and Ceiling.
