1. Top-quality acrylic paints for the walls and ceiling Acrylic paints are preferred for homes because of their superlative properties: they are quick-drying, extremely durable, and resistant to peeling, flaking or cracking when subjected to extreme conditions of weather and temperature. It is advisable to go for quality paints that come with good antimicrobial qualities that protect walls from dark spots created by fungal growth. These paints also include non-yellowing agents that prevent the paints from fading over a period of time. Make it a point to go for odourless, chemical-free and environment-friendly products with safe levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Brands like Berger and Dulux have such paints on offer. Tip: Ensure the preparation of a smooth surface for a good paint finish. To achieve this, use POP (plaster of Paris) to repair all the holes and cracks in the wall. This should be followed with priming to seal the walls and provide a good base for the paints to adhere to.Browse through more ideas and inspiration for wall colour
