So, you want to repaint your condo and make the space truly your own? We’re here to support you! Condos typically have a few limitations. You could be faced with limited space, ventilation, and natural light. Take these into consideration when choosing a paint product and paint color for your condo makeover. Here’s what we recommend:

Virtuoso Silk Touch

Matte Finish

When you have a small room, glossy paint sheens are not the best way to go. Coating your walls in glossy paint will make light bounce around the space too much and can become tiring to look at.

Matte paints like Virtuoso Silk Touch, on the other hand, are more restful and soothing to the eyes. Plus, because they lack the shine of glossy paints, they also come across as cozier and more elegant.

Low Odor and Fast Drying Time

You want to avoid strong paint chemical smells when you’re working in a small space without much ventilation. Virtuoso Silk Touch is water-based and has virtually no odor when applied. Just make sure you still open your doors and windows.

You might not have the luxury of moving to another room to wait for the paint to dry when in a condo either. Good thing Virtuoso Silk Touch also has a drying time of just around 1 to 2 hours.

Easy to Clean

Low maintenance? Sure thing. Virtuoso Silk Touch is manufactured to have a surface protector so oil and dirt do not easily stick to it. Simply wipe your painted surface clean with a soft cloth and gentle household cleaner.

Odor-less and Fast Drying Time

No need to stay away! Boysen Healthy Home is a water-based paint that’s very low-odor, so much so that other condo inhabitants don’t need to leave the room while it’s being painted or while waiting for the paint to dry. Again, open all doors and windows to make sure there’s proper ventilation while you work. Just like Virtuoso Silk Touch, Healthy Home also has a drying time of just around 1 to 2 hours.


Live in a family condo? Keep the kids healthy and happy. When fully cured, Boysen Healthy Home provides antibacterial protection to your room walls. An additive in the paint equips it with microscopic needles that pierce the cell walls of microbes upon contact, killing them immediately.

The antibacterial protection covers common household disease-causing bacteria like E. coli and salmonella. It also makes it resistant to mold and fungi.

Lots of Color Options

You’ll be able to find Boysen Healthy Home—which comes in a satin finish, by the way—in a selection of readily available colors. There are also suggested colors which you can check out via the Boysen App or the Boysen Healthy Home brochure. This gives you even more paint colors which you can have mixed at a Boysen Mix & Match station. Check out the fan decks  available there too for more options.

Wishing you luck with your condo repaint!
