    After using some really inferior paint, I realized how important quality was--I couldn't beleive the difference.

    I have to admit color is very important. However, to keep my conscience clear, I ask that the color I like be created with an environmentally friendly base.

    I agree with momof6boys although color is very important, i also choice and environmentally friendly paint.

    I tried using cheaper brands but they were too thin, so I've decided to pay the higher prices and get a better quality of paint that I am happy with.

    cheap paint doesn't clean well, with four kids I am willing to pay more so I can wash the walls often

    I did not realize how much paint quality really does matter, but now after kids I realize that quality really is very important!!

    Quality, color and price in that order for me. Cheaper brands do not work. Been there done that!! Is a waste of money and time.

    I like the environmentally safe for my kids. I need to think of my little ones in everything. Of course, I wouldn't buy it if I didn't like the color!
