Produced by AkzoNobel, Dulux offers a wide range of decorative paints that can give walls a new look in a jiffy. While colours and textures have gained ground over the years, there are two definite trends according to Dulux, which have become extremely popular in recent times. Highlighting a wall in the room, commonly called the accent wall and alternating between hues are the two most important styles people look out for. The accent wall creates the perfect milieu of colour and vibrancy in the room and most consumers go for a bright or dark colour for the prominent wall which has ample lighting and paint the rest of the walls in lighter variations of the same colour or a complementing colour. The practice of alternating between hues on the other hand, refers to using darker and lighter tones of the same colour throughout your home. The best bet is to analyse your space before deciding what paint to opt for. Some of the best-selling products from Dulux include Dulux Velvet Touch, which is a premium luxury interior paint and Weathershield Sun Reflect for exteriors which helps in keeping the temperature in check.
Tip: Go for teal this year as the colour symbolises balance and has a subdued richness which is used to describe tropical seas of shimmering bluish green.
