Can Your Hallway Endure It's Everyday Wear and Tear 10 May 2010
When it comes to uplifting the home with a new coat of paint, we often overlook the hallway in favour of updating the living room, kitchen or bedrooms. Ironically, the hallway is one of the most used rooms in the home, so it’s important to ensure the walls can ‘endure’ everyday wear and tear, caused from the likes of finger prints, soccer balls, school bags and muddy shoes. The hallway is also the first room that visitors see, so when it comes to deciding on which space to re-paint and what paint to choose, make sure you select one with superior performing properties, such as Taubmans Endure.
Taubmans Endure has been engineered with Nanoguard. The interlocking molecular structure creates a protective shield so that everyday dirt and stains can simply be wiped away - without compromising the quality of the paint*. Your hallway walls will stay fresh and cleaner for longer, helping you to create an inviting entrance into your home.
The wall space within a hallway acts as an ideal canvas to showcase your favourite pieces of art or family photography. To achieve a light and airy look, a creamy white paint for the walls such as Taubmans Whitehouse will help to create the illusion of space. Set off the ceiling and freshen up trims for a sleek finish with a traditional bright white, such as Taubmans White.
As well as choosing the right colour for your walls, it’s also important to choose the right type of paint for different surfaces. Professional Painter and star of Taubmans TV advertisment, Nick Taylor from Taubmans says “For high traffic areas like hallways, choose low-sheen paint. A Gloss paint works best for doors and architraves and for ceilings always opt for a matte finish – this will help hide imperfections and reduce light reflection’’.
