Curb appeal is a key to selling your house and curb appeal is a key in choosing the right look for a home you may want to purchase. The color combinations and how recent a home has had a new coat of paint add to the appeal of any home.

Standard Paint and Flooring, LLC offers not only a paint store, but also sells materials for floors, bathrooms, kitchen walls, and countertops. By shopping for your paint here you’ll be able to coordinate your house colors on the outside with the style and colors on the inside. This store is located across the street from Kohl’s at 1480 Tapteal Dr. in Richland. Google reviews give this company a 4.9 rating for knowledgeable and friendly staff. For your painting needs, there are plenty of samples and color cards to take home. They sell several brands, but their Benjamin Moore paints stands out as a high-quality paint both for interior and exterior jobs.

Another competitor for a top paint store is Sherwin-Williams Paint Store. They are located at 2100 Keene Rd. in Richland. One helpful tool they offer is called ColorSnap Visualizer. This is a registered trademark piece of software that allows the consumer to take a picture of their home (exterior or interior) and with the click on a keyboard, the paint colors you are considering appear on your photo. This helps you visualize the possible color combinations would look like on your home. So, you no longer must make an expensive decision based on a 1” x 6” piece of paper with three to five colors from which to choose. Sherwin-Williams sells its own brand of paint and is considered a high-quality product.
Another paint store with a five-star review is Miller Paint Company located at 8818 W. Victoria Ave. in Kennewick, near Steptoe and Gage. They primarily sell Miller paints, but also sell Rust-Oleum, PPG, and Kelly-Moore paints. Like the other mentioned local paint stores, Miller’s Paint employees will offer suggestions for choosing the right colors for your home. They even offer at-home exterior consultations for $175.00 (up to 60 minutes). Colors can look very different in tone and darkness/lightness on different surfaces, both inside and out. A consultation can help you invest wisely and create an appearance that will please you.
