PER­FECT PAINT

Geraldton Guardian - - REAL ESTATE -

Du­lux’s Andrea Lu­cena-Orr of­fers her top tips on choos­ing the right paint colours for your home:

Colour is such a per­sonal choice so you should al­ways make your own colour de­ci­sions. There is so much emo­tion con­nected with colour and each per­son has their own colour mem­ory.

We highly rec­om­mend us­ing A4 swatches and Du­lux sam­ple pots to trial colours. Don’t test your sam­ple pot di­rectly on the wall — paint onto card­board so you can move it around your home and see the colours un­der dif­fer­ent light­ing con­di­tions, fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories.

Keep sam­ples up for three to four days to en­sure you’re happy.

Un­der­tones play a huge part when se­lect­ing whites and neu­trals for your kitchen or bath­room. En­sure you view sam­ples of tiles, cab­i­nets, lam­i­nates, bench­tops, stone and floor­ing, so you can en­sure the right un­der­tone is se­lected.

Se­lect fix­tures and fit­tings first, as th­ese are of­ten lim­ited with un­der­tones.
