Is white paint forbidden?

Using white paint is common c. For projection, this is not always the ideal colour.

Go ahead and use white walls for projections if:

  • You have access to full control over the ambient light in your space.
  • You invest in a high contrast ratio projector.
  • Or if it’s an area with no natural lighting (like a traditional movie theatre).

Painting on white depends on personal preferences and specific circumstances!

What about black?

Although some may choose a black wall, it is not recommended as the colour will not reflect light or images. Black suggests an absence of light, leading to dusky and gloomy visuals. This shade does your movies no favours!

Have you searched for the perfect paint finish to give your home a unique look and feel?

Matte or flat finish lacked the vibrancy desired in projection imagery. Glossy finishes are reflective, which means that they would not be very effective.
