Jim’s Professional Painting Croydon share their Top 5 Tips for choosing the perfect paint colour:
1.Test and Sample:
If you are uncertain about colours, start experimenting with small test patches of colour on the wall. Don’t just try one colour, sample a few.
2. Mood Matters:
Consider the mood and ambience of the room. If you wish to have a soothing and peaceful mood for your living area, select neutral and cool colours for the walls. Kids’ bedrooms can be more vibrant, lively and cheerful.
3. Look into Lights:
Lighting, whether it be natural or artificial lighting, plays a major role in reflecting the colour tones from your wall. Natural daylight will show the colour in its truest form, whereas fluorescent lighting can bring out the sharper blue tones in a colour.
4. Think about Direction:
Determining the orientation of the room will also help you know what level of natural lighting it receives. For example, south facing rooms are likely to receive very little natural sunlight throughout the day, so they may naturally appear cooler. Choose colours with tones of red, yellow and orange to warm up a south facing room.
5. Monochrome Melody:
Single colour has the power to create an everlasting impact. A single colour but in various shades and finishes. Use shades of black or white to create a magical effect, or shades of blue for a cooling impact.
