I've noticed a trend on BP that a lot of people like to use SW paint. I always use Behr paint for my rental properties and I always use white for the walls. I've noticed a few people recommended the SW Realist Beige color, which I want to try. I noticed that SW offers the HGTV paint with primer, which is their least expensive paint. Is this the one that most people are using? If it is not, then what type of SW paint are you using?
I'm not an expert on this field, but generally speaking, I don't think brand matters that much. I used different brands and haven't really noticed much difference. I would avoid expensive paint though, such as Benjamin Moore. I use Navajo white for the wall.
Soh, Thanks for your response. Have you used any type of SW paint? If you have, do you use the HGTV paint?
If you are a painter there is a huge difference. Behr is the worst to actually use, drips and doesn't hold an edge. SW is great paint but use the professional line ProMar 200 or 400 both are better than HGTV.
@Daniel Guas I don't paint, but the painter that I use buys ProMar mentioned above. I'm happy with the result.
We use SW Promar 400 and the color we've used to date is Studio Taupe. In a house that's more open with larger rooms it looks great and warm. In smaller SFH it's a bit dark so we plan to go lighter. We use Pure White for the trim.
