Selecting paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.
At Matchless Interior Painting we work with our customers in the Austin area to help them find the best paint for the job. Usually it starts with a number of questions, including:
We've not yet gotten to color, but these questions can help us determine the needed quality and sheen for your Austin area home. Homeowners will often want to have a higher quality paint used in a room more frequently visited by others, like the living room, than they will want to use in a child's bedroom. We'll take that into account.
Sheen is important when you are thinking through how to select paint. You'll want to consider how the room is used and how much you like, or don't like, shiny walls. A gloss or semi-gloss paint can work well in kitchens and play rooms as they'll be easier to wipe clean and will stand up to some "abuse." But, if you don't like shiny walls you won't like gloss or semi-gloss paint.
You may love the effect a flat or matte paint can give a room, but it's important to know that they won't be quite as easy to clean.
Most customers will settle on satin or eggshell when house painting. Some people love, and always use, one or the other. Other customers will choose one or the other depending on the room, using satins for kitchens, bathrooms and children's rooms, and eggshell for living rooms, dining rooms and adult bedrooms.
That brings us to what is most often the challenging part when selecting paint for a home - choosing the color. Again, we'll ask some questions:
These are just some of the many questions that you'll want to ask yourself when you are considering color for house painting projects. We can say that most customers end up being most happy when they factor in the feeling they are trying to create throughout the house instead of just picking a color they like for one room.
It can be easy for homeowners to fall into the current trend. This can be fine if the trend is likely to hold up or if the homeowner doesn't mind painting their home every couple of years. Other customers will be focused on keeping within the style of their home or creating a timeless look that will hold up over many years.
Ultimately, you'll want to pick a color that works for you. Unless, of course, your purpose for painting is to sell the home or rent out the space. There are many, many resources for you to look at when considering how to select paint - here are a few good ones:
Many people choose to paint their ceilings white or off-white, and that's certainly fine. But, if you are considering a renovation, or just a different look for a room, don't forget about the ceiling. Painting the ceiling can help a room look bigger, or smaller. It can add a swanky feel or a touch of formality. Either way, homeowners usually find that painting a ceiling is much more difficult than painting a wall. So, give Matchless Interior Painting a call and we'll save you the time, as well as the aches and pains.
Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at Matchless Interior Painting we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

This review is a few years over due, but Jeff deserves the 5 stars. We had him come paint a few rooms in our house a few days before we moved in. He was very quick and was able to finish a few hours early. His work is also very clean - he did a good job painting and ensured that his team did not leave a mess in the house. He even made some great suggestions on how to paint accents in our baby room. I'd definitely use him again.
Jeff and his team did an outstanding job painting the interior of my house. We are still getting comments about how awesome it looks. Jeff is very hands on, making sure to pay attention to every detail. He is very conscientious about the quality of work that his company provides. They even came back to do touch ups the next day and that made the entire place look even better! Jose and Eloy did very neat work, didn't mess up my floors or anything, and were left in my home all day--with no incident. They swept my floor and locked up for me! I highly recommend Matchless Interior Painting for any of your household painting needs. I can't wait to have them back in the future.
My wife got in touch with Jeff regarding a couple rooms worth of painting at our new house. He gave an initial quote over the phone, but was more than willing to work around our schedules to come by and give a more accurate number (we had a couple of rooms we wanted non-standard stuff, like blocking done). The pricing was competitive with a few other places we looked at. I think we called on Monday and they were painting by Thurs. We were secretly hoping to find someone that could get it done before Saturday, since we were moving in (so he scored bonus points with us). They were short a man on Thursday, but due to our extra stuff, it was going to take two days anyways. The crew (including Jeff) did a good job of policing splotches / drips. I think I have one tiny touch up I have to do (my wife would tell you I'm OCD and no one else would notice). I would use Jeff and Matchless Interior Painting in the future.
Jason and his team worked tirelessly to make sure that the house was done to the highest standards with a warm feeling of home. His professionalism and courtesy are unsurpassed and it was a pleasure to work with him throughout the project. We highly recommend him to any and all homeowners, especially us first timers!
My wife and I painted most of our place ourselves, but for the hard to reach places on our second story, we decided to give Jeff at Matchless a call. Jeff was responsive, and his painters did a great job. We also decided to have some popcorn removed from our ceiling while they were up there, and the subcontractor he used for the popcorn was equally professional and courteous. The prices were reasonable, too. We're considering using them again for removing the rest of our popcorn and painting the ceilings. Thanks a ton, Jeff!
Jeff and his team did an incredible job with our house. We only had about a week timeframe before we were moving in and they came in and painted a 3br/2ba 1300 sq ft home in 4 days and it looked brand new. We asked them to paint some accent walls and they did a brilliant job with the design. We highly recommend them and look forward to using them again in the future.
Awesome experience with Jeff! He gave a better estimate than anyone else who came by, beat them on price by a mile, and did wonderful work. I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thanks!
Jeff & his crew did a great job on my daughter's bedroom & bathroom! Will definitely be using them all the time for any painting needs!
These guys are incredible! Jeff was super helpful, very affordable, and his crew had a great eye for detail. We'll definitely book them again soon.
Jeff and his team were amazing. Very professional, fast, and communicative. I have had them work on a residential project and 2 commercial projects, all with very very fast and late notice timelines. True professionals and I Would highly recommend this team to anyone! They never disappoint!
Jeff and his crew painted my home last year and they did an excellent job. Jeff was honest about timing, expectation and level of service. His crew was very respectful and courteous. They were in my home painting every wall, ceiling, door and trim. They had to paint a lighter color over a much darker color and they were very particular about getting it done right. I like clean lines on creases and trim and that was done expertly. I have recommended Jeff to many friends and clients because of his and his crew's service. Job well done!
I have worked with Jeff on several jobs. As an Interior Designer, the subcontractors I use can make or break the project. My subcontractors represent me. Jeff and his team have never let me down. In fact a few time I have had Matchless come in and clean up jobs that my clients original painters had buggered up. With painting it's all in the prep, Matchless understands that. Matchless has always shown up when they say they will be there and finished when they say they will be done. Again, in my line of work that's just as important as the quality of the work. Fortunately for me they bring the quality in there work as well. I look forward to working with Jeff and his team on many more projects to come and would recommend them to others who expect the same level of work that I do.
Jeff painted our "new to us" home from top to bottom. We had him do the ceilings, trim, doors, built ins and kitchen cabinets. We are extremely pleased with the job he did. He and his entire team were professional, prompt, detail oriented and helpful. If I had a concern, he was very kind and receptive about getting it taken care of. He also took it upon himself to try and work with our tile guy to try and shave a few days off our remodel process. The kitchen cabinets he painted had a few defective hinges, and he found exact replacements after visiting several stores throughout the Austin area. I can't say enough about the job he did and I will gladly use him again in the future.
I have worked with this company in several projects. Their work is always impeccable & top-notch. The crew is always professional, polite and the communication is fast and reliable. Their rates are extremely competitive as well!
Jeff was courteous, and on time. We dealt through emails, phone calls and personally. All methods were fast and precise. We had two bedrooms and two baths painted in our home. One bedroom was a dark blue. They primed it and did a good job covering the prior paint. We thought that it would take a couple of days, but he and his crew did it all in one day. They even moved all of the furniture back for us. We heard about Matchless through our neighborhood Facebook page. I highly recommend the company.
Matchless was great for us. We used them to repaint some of the rooms in the house we purchased. Even when I realized that the color I had chosen ultimately needed to be modified mid-way through, they were understanding and were helpful in re-working through it and meeting the time deadlines with a fair negotiation for price alterations. We will use Matchless again in the future for future painting needs. I also liked the fact that they were knowledgeable about the no-VOC paints.
Painless from start to finish. Jeff gave us a quote right away, we set a date, and the team arrived as scheduled. They took care of and protected all our belongings, including the piano, cleaned up after themselves, and did a beautiful job. Reliable, no-nonsense service.
Jeff and his crew were great! We have employed them twice. The first job was to pain two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The last job they did for us was painting a bedroom with an accent wall. They are quick, tidy, reasonable, and polite. They were on time for both jobs and done in a day. I highly recommend them.
Jeff and his crew do terrific work at fantastic prices, what more could you want from a contractor? They communicate well, too. We've used them several times in the past including a job last weekend, and we will use them again in the very near future. I cannot recommend this contractor more highly. If you have an interior painting job, get a quote from Jeff, you'll be very glad you did.
If you want a painting job done well and priced reasonably, there is no one I could recommend more highly than Jeff from Matchless. When I contacted him about an estimate for our condo, he was very flexible in his time for coming by. He worked around my floor guy's schedule and was there until late one night so he could finish up. He did our walls, cabinets and wood around doors. No mess to clean up afterwards, either. Very professional and one of my best contractor experiences ever.
Jeff and his team worked on a painting project in my house earlier this summer. This was a big size project as we were painting the entire living area, ceiling, dining area, half-bathroom , master bedroom and master bathroom (first floor) and game room and the guest bathroom (second floor). There were a few things which made this project challenging: Our home has high ceiling (20 ft) and there was wall-paper in the kitchen , dining area, master bathroom and the guest bathrooms. Many painters do not bother removing the wallpaper and instead just paint over them. Jeff and his team showed a lot of patience in getting the wallpaper out and preparing the surface (texture) before painting those areas. The entire project lasted eight days - The team showed up on time every single day. All the painters were very polite, respectful and professional. We are very happy with their work and will recommend Matchless painting wholeheartedly to all our friends.
We hired Jeff based on his great reviews and we're not disappointed. His prices were competitive with other quotes. Jeff and his co-worker showed up on time, we're courteous and did a great job. We hired him again to paint our garage and do an epoxy floor. We plan on calling him again for any of our future projects.
Very nice, very prompt. Cleaned up after words beautifully. Took a bit longer than anticipated but a lovely job and would certainly consider Matchless for my next project.
Jeff, Drew, Craig and Josh did an awesome job painting my entire condo for a very fair price. Cheaper than painters recommended by friends. They went above and beyond just painting... such as new trim, power washing, removal of built in shelving and did it in 4 days. I'm very pleased. I recommend Matchless.
Jeff and his crew have painted parts of our house many times. They perform really high quality work for a very reasonable price. He's painted our entire downstairs, twice, including our Master bedroom and bath, living room, stairwell, dining room, and family room. And a few hallways connecting it all. We also had his crew do some drywall work while they were there, and it looks really good. I highly recommend him!
They are one of the best.. very clean job. He is a perfectionist.
