It is very difficult to determine how a particular colour will look on your walls, and with your lighting, so for those who have a colour in mind, it is a good idea to buy a sample.
Shelly instructed: “Allow the paint to dry, observing its colour in both daytime and night. This will give you a true idea of what the colour will look like on your walls.
“If you are unsure of the colour, purchase a few samples and do the same.”

Primer does not, however, help you skip the step of cleaning the walls.
