Great Paints and Great Service

I've really enjoyed working with Colorhouse paints in my apartment. I also appreciate their "color nerds" steering me in the right direction!

Great coverage and no smell!

By far the best paint I've purchased. I recently purchased Aspire .01 (a very light yellow) for a wall in our bedroom. The walls are a dark brown and I was concerned I needed primer as well before putting on the Colorhouse paint. After talking with their Color Help team, they said primer wouldn't be necessary but I would need a couple coats. Skeptical but trusting, I painted the wall without primer. I was excited to see two coats covered the wall easily and covered the dark brown without issue. A bonus was that there was hardly any smell while painting, and when it dried you couldn't tell the room had been painted at all! I've painted many rooms with other brands in the past and have always needed to air out the room for days to get the fumes out. Not with Colorhouse! I definitely recommend Colorhouse paint to anyone.

Paint Coverage

I bought 3 gallons of Colorhouse Paint, Eggshell. Thrive .03thru Amazon after reviewing an advertisement in Good Housekeeping.1. The ad said that the paint could be used on furniture. The can said not to use the paint on furniture, cabinet or floors. The Customer is left to figure out what to do2. The paint requries 2 to 3 coats to cover a wall. The first coat dries to a yellow background tinkFor the price of the paint and the inability to cover I do not recommend anyone purchasing the paint. This is true case of buyer beware!

Great advice!

I received great advice which took my theme and tastes into consideration. I now feel more confident to apply the ombre technique I was thinking of and discovered that Colorhouse has the best selection of paint colors! Thank you!

Great customer service

Hi, I had an issue with one white paint color on my wall looking a bit different than the small chip I chose it from. Still not quite sure what had happened. I emailed customer service and after couple of emails back and forth they decided to send me a replacement paint that would be custom colored to my preference. It arrived at my door step few days later which was a lot faster than I had gotten the original paint through a third party vendor. I don't know if it is common practice with them, but to me it shows how great the company is considering most of the ordering happens online; and it was no hassle from my part.I have used several of their products (different neutral and white colors) and they were true to the chips I had. They also were easy to apply and rolled on smoothly. I used eggshell and flat finishes and they both worked a lot better than some other "green" alternatives I tested on a piece of primed drywall. They don't smell and they dry in reasonable amount of time. Coverage after primer and two coats of Colorhouse paint was very good on new drywall with no photographing. Thanks.
