Color and quality and minimal choices

I’ll never have enough wonderful things to say about Backdrop- after experiencing bother interior and exterior painting jobs, I can confidently say Backdrop executes any project flawlessly.

Anna, Kansas City, MO

The experience with Backdrop was amazing! I loved how they made it feel so personal from the beginning -- they sent us samples that were already so beautiful, it was hard to choose! White is one of my favorite colors but turns out, there are so many variations. We tested out a few different ones and landed on SUPERMOON which was a creamier/warmer white and it made such an impact on our walls. We wanted to fill it with warm tones throughout but wanted the walls to stay clean and fresh. For the exterior, we decided on NO CURFEW which is a cooler charcoal with hints of blue, the perfect in between of black and you typical gray. Our neighbors house is black and the other neighbor's is a deep forest green so this was a great alternative and we actually ended up liking it better! We have already gotten a ton of compliments from people walking by & friends of course! We are so happy Backdrop came out with a semi-matte exterior paint. We don't love sheen or shine so this was a great choice once it launched. Overall, so so pumped that they exist and especially now that they chose Kansas City as their first city to offer painting services, woo!
