Light Reflectance Values

LRV, or Light Reflectance Value, refers to how light or dark a paint colour will look on a scale of 0 (black) to 100 (white). The higher the LRV number is, the lighter the colour is. The lower the LRV number is – the darker the colour is. This can greatly affect your room depending on how much natural or artificial light your room gets. Any colour will look lighter when hit with direct natural or artificial light.

Tikkurila do not publish the LRVs of their colours online, but if you do require an LRV please contact enquiries@valtti.co.uk with detail of the colour.
