Valspar paint is available at Lowes including colors inspired by the ocean and coastline. If you want a coastal feeling in your house, here are 7 paint colors to consider for your next project. These colors may not be 100% exactly what you’re lookin for, so try checking out the options a few shades lighter or darker.
For each of the paint options in the series the light reflective value (LVR) is included as provided by Valspar. This is a useful number to know especially if you’re painting in a room has fairly limited natural light. LVR ranges from 0 to 100. Aim for a color that has a LVR of 60 or higher to avoid making a dark room feel even darker.
7 Valspar coastal green paint colors to inspire your next project
Green is one important color to consider as part of your coastal decorating plan. While you may not think green is a coastal color, have you seen been to an oceanfront that has dunes. The sea grasses are one example of where you can find green. It’s not the same green you see on a lawn.
Depending on the other colors you choose for your home, you may need to flex a few shades in order to create a cohesive color palette.
Each of the greens have a different undertone that will allow to better coordinate with some color over others. You’ll notice some strong yellow undertones in several of the examples.
As each monitor is different as well as the light in your house, pick up either a sample or printed blue paint chip to ensure it’s the right color for your room.
This list of coastal greens is based on their order of their light reflective value (LVR) across the larger Valspar color palette.
