    Anyone have any recommendations on the best shade of white to paint the room walls? I'm in the US, so any brand should be possible...?

    Thanks!

    A white shade. :mrgreen: Sorry, couldn't resist. Here :joint:

    A flat finish is best though.

    If I remember correctly, flat reflects the light more efficiently than a shiny surface.

    Use a latex paint, it cleans up with water.

    Wouldnt a high sheen work better then flat? Like semi gloss, or a satin?

    no, the shiny stuff has clear in it. this diminishes the light as it reflects thru. flat white, the color is reflecting the light not the paint. flat white is the most reflective color. plain, flat, white. :weed:

    As a painter & decorator, i have been looking into this and would recommend this paint by sandtex

    Goes on in 1 coat and is sylicon based, i think the exterior masonary paint is the best for painting normal walls, with paster on

    Or use sandtex exterior emulsion for wooden built cabs

    The added bunus of using the masonary paint if applied well, is it also seals the room, as its sylicon based

    Do you get this paint in the usa?

    i painted my cab bright green coz i read in the begginers section that plants cant see green , so i figured that the plants would like it in there because they would feel like they where in a wide open space , because they cant see the green walls .
