Did you know that color has a language all its own? Here are some words your color consultant will use:
Value: How light or dark the color is – an LRV is a measurement of Light Reflectance
Chroma: How vibrant the color is versus how neutral it is
Hue: What color is the color – blue? Green? Red?
Tint: How much white is in the color
Neutral: A color that coordinates well with other colors
Palette: A group of colors that play well with each other
Finish: What type of sheen is the paint? We’re not talking about Martin and Charlie here! This is an important step in deciding your paint. Flat/matte? Low Sheen? Eggshell? Semi Gloss? High Gloss? Every sheen has at least one purpose. Ask your consultant which is best for your needs.
Shade: How much black/gray is in the color.
