Is the higher Price of premium paint Worth It?

The bottom line is that you get what you pay for when it comes to paint brands. If you can only afford standard paint, then pick the brand that appeals to you the most. Standard paint does not last as long as premium paint, so keep in mind that you may have to repaint sooner than you would with premium paint. When you add the price to repaint to the original amount, you may find that you will pay more to cover your walls with standard paint than you would if you had just bought premium paint in the first place.
