Which paint line to use, quality vs price?
I'm sure this comes up periodically, I just must be using the wrong key words.
I need to paint the kitchen and powder room, and eventually the great room/stairwell/upper hallway. I have always used SW paint in the past, and with proper prep, priming, and two coats have had great results. Most recently I used Obi Lilac in the spare bedroom to convert it to a reading room, and Threshold Beige in the full bath.
GC will use any paint I specify, though he believes SW has priced themselves out of the market for the quality of their product. He suggests Behr or Valspar. Contract says prime and 2 coats of paint, so I'm not worried about "one coat coverage" or "paint and primer in one", I just want it to look good when it's done.
I've personally never worked with anything but SW in my short painting DIY career, but I'm willing to give another brand a try. What's the best paint in this price range for interior surfaces? I need to pick out colors over the next couple of weeks and would rather work with the color deck for the line I intend to use vs try to color match.
