How to Make Paint Look Better and Last Longer

If you’re starting a new paint job, or touching up an old one, you may be thinking about how to make it look better and last longer. Even good quality paints can lose their colour and finish over time. Elements like the weather, condensation and more can all affect your paint. But, if you use the right product to protect them, your paint work will look fantastic and be even more durable.  Try one of these three options on your next project.

A strong satin finish

If you want your paint to look better, a smooth satin finish is a fantastic choice. Mathys Divalo is a varnish which can be used on indoor projects, over decorative paints to help your paint work stay strong, and be harder wearing. Mathys Divalo also doesn’t yellow and it’s washable! Apply it with a roller or a brush to give any of your paint work a decorative, easily cleanable finish.

A high wearing glaze

If you really need a durable finish on your interiors, a high wear glaze is the one for you. We recommend Bedec Decorators Hardglaze to finish off your indoor paint jobs. It’s harder wearing than the normal Bedec Acrylic Varnish, so it’s going to make your paint last longer and work harder. It doesn’t yellow and gives you a quality satin finish. Additionally it’s washable and non-yellowing so you can keep your paint looking fresh for as long as possible. This product is ideal on larger, commercial projects like schools, and public buildings providing a hard wearing finish that is much easier to maintain than complete re-decoration.

An insulating additive

Coatings and varnishes aren’t your only option when it comes to making your paint look better and last longer. Paint additives can have a variety of properties which can all give your paint even better durability amongst other things. Thermilate Thermalmix Paint Additive is an additive that helps your paintwork to last longer and has insulating qualities. This revolutionary product cuts down energy and reduced heat loss, whilst protecting your paint from condensation. Condensation can quickly change the appearance of your paint, and is more than likely to encourage problems such as mould!

There are even more ways to make paint look better and last longer than the methods we mentioned above. You can choose from a variety of paints, coatings, additives and other products to get the most out of your paint. If you’re re-painting or starting from scratch, if you do what you can to make you paint look great and last, you’ll find that you won’t need to touch your paint as often!
