How to Choose Your Colour Scheme:
When you decide upon your colour scheme, it is best to stick with either:
- Harmonious colours– similar colours are matched and used;
- Monochromatic colours– several shades of the very same colour;
- Contrasting colours– where two very different colours are used such as black and white.
Choosing Your Type of Paint.
There are no end of different types of paint, and what you use will depend upon the area you are having painted and the kind of conditions that it needs to endure.
Outdoor areas need to face harsher conditions due to weather, so will need to be painted with special exterior paints. Most exterior paints come with UV protection which greatly increases how long your paint lasts outside.
Interior paints need to suit their purpose. Bathrooms and other wet areas require a more resistant paint that can stand up to moisture, such as a semi-gloss or gloss. While living areas can get by with a flat surface.
Painting Your Children’s Rooms. Kids’ rooms need a durable, colourful and easy to clean finish. Good thing is paint is so cheap, that you can redo the kids’ rooms often, as their tastes change.
Inside your home and office you have so many options and special paint finishes and effects available such as metallic, pastel, suede, pearl, colour washing, marbling, rag rolling, ragging, sponging, dragging, crackling, stenciling, stainless steel, lime washes and rusted iron, among others.
There is even blackboard paint available– great for the kitchen or even study areas! With such an amazing range of options, consulting a professional will help you choose the ideal look for your home. A lot of painting companies will provide a colour consultancy service, or you may choose the services of an interior designer.
Wallpapering is an attractive option to paint, producing textures and effects that paint alone cannot achieve. Today’s wallpapers are easy to apply and remove and come in a wide range of colours and textures. Textures include hessian, canvas, vinyl, wood and rice paper, among others. Most paint companies will take down old wallpaper for you and install new wallpaper of your choice.
