Pilbara News - - Property -

Paint is one of the best ways to update your in­te­ri­ors but a good DIY paint job re­quires plenty of prepa­ra­tion be­fore you even pick up a brush.

From choos­ing colours to the tricks to achiev­ing a pro­fes­sional-qual­ity fin­ish, Bun­nings’ David Wood­ford an­swers three of the most com­mon ques­tions cus­tomers ask about paint­ing.

Where do I start when giv­ing my home some colour?

Adding colour to your home is a lot eas­ier than you might think.

Start by choos­ing a fo­cal point in your room, such as a cup­board, couch or rug, and base your colour pal­ette around it to bring your look to­gether.

How can you in­cor­po­rate pas­tels?

When it comes to us­ing colour, in­cor­po­rat­ing pas­tel tones is of­ten con­sid­ered a “safe” way to go.

Pair pas­tels with bright, bold hues to cre­ate that wow fac­tor or, al­ter­na­tively, use pas­tel colours to cre­ate a fea­ture wall in your kitchen, bed­room or lounge.

Is there an in­ex­pen­sive way to re­vamp my home?

If you’re look­ing for an in­ex­pen­sive, highly ver­sa­tile DIY way to re­vamp your home, then spray-paint is a great op­tion. Use spray-paint to eas­ily cre­ate a fresh look on an old chair or add some charm to your door han­dles with metal­lic hues. Fresh wall­pa­per also can do the trick.
