Infographics are a special breed of images in that they are visual and highly functional, explaining sometimes complicated ideas in pictures. A good infographic is effective when it tells in an instant the message it wants to convey. When dealing with paint and other Boysen products and processes, this could be difficult, especially if there is not just one message being expressed. But we get feedback from our readers as well as our collaborators in the company. There are 8 Let it B|MyBoysen blog infographics in 2021 that have earned this accolade. They are much appreciated by our readers, and also by our colleagues who use these infographics in their work with painters and other specifiers. Here are the top 8 blog infographics in 2021.
1. Light Reflectance Value (LRV)
What is Light Reflectance Value (LRV) and why is this important? LRV measures a color’s absorption of reflection of light. In other words, it shows the percentage of light that a color reflects. This is important because when you choose a paint color, you should also consider the paint’s LRV. Architects and interior designers usually pick a paint color with an LRV of at least 50%. For darker rooms, they suggest to choose an LRV of 65% or higher.
2. Painting Interior Wooden Walls
