The History of Wall Paint

History of Wall Paint

The history of wall paint is nothing short of interesting. There are no shortage of color options these days. To change our wall’s color, all we have to do is go to the store and select to our heart’s desire. But of course, in the vast history of wall paint, this was not always the case. Prior to the 19th century, painting the interior walls of a home would have been an on-site job done by a small cohort of professionals…there were a handful of options and little guarantees. When the color was applied to the wall, that was it. Blue walls were a favorite among the wealthy, until the 1700’s the color was actually derived from the semi-precious stone azurite, and as such, was quite expensive. Later, more colors became available, and the wealthy began to look to the paint’s sheen. The glossier the paint, the better. This article by SemiStories is as informative as it is enjoyable.
