MUSE or SICO EVOLUTION: which collection is right for your home paint project?


Kicking off an interior design project and need some paint? It’s easy to get lost in the seemingly endless shelves of product out there! So here’s a guide to help you make the right choice between SICO® 's two most innovative paint lines: Muse and Sico Evolution.

What’re you going to do in the space? How frequently will you be washing the walls? What colour intensity are you looking for? These are three questions you’ll need to answer before settling on the proper product line for you. Know that how you’ll use the room is one of the biggest factors to consider when making your decision.

But first thing’s first—here’s a primer on each product!
