When choos­ing a colour for the ex­te­rior of your home, it’s wise to stay away from yel­lows and peach tones. These don’t work well with the kind of light that we get in Ire­land. In­stead, go for some­thing that has an earthy hue or hint of green to it. Port­land by Du­lux is an ex­cel­lent choice for those look­ing for an off-white.

Don’t be afraid of the darker shades; these can work well for spe­cific styles of house. A de­tached home will be able to get away with more than a semi-de­tached or ter­raced house where it is best to stick to a sim­i­lar pal­ette to the rest of the houses on your street.
