Choosing a color. Elder's Ace has hundreds of colors to choose from and the expertise to help.

The color of your flooring, as well as your furniture, are important to consider when choosing a paint color. Bring in a sample (such as a pillow case or drapery) to your local Elder’s Ace and we can customize you a color to match. And if you have a hard time deciding between a couple, we can mix pint size samples for you to take home and try!

Selecting the right sheen.

The sheen of a paint refers to how shiny the finish will look. Three of our most common sheens are listed below:

  • Flat & Matte: A flat sheen is typically used for ceilings or low traffic areas. Both flat and matte sheens are ideal for less-than-perfect surfaces and both provide a great depth of color.

  • Eggshell & Satin: Both eggshell and satin sheens provide a softly polished glow to color and an easy to clean surface, which makes it ideal for high traffic areas. These sheens are also useful for colored ceilings because they help reflect light.

  • Semi-gloss: A semi-gloss sheen is often recommended for trims and moldings, and is particularly durable.
