Three tips for picking the right paint colour

Given that a good paint colour has the power to change the whole feeling of your home and up your resale value – without breaking the bank – how do you get it right so that your space shows off a little personality, style and ultimately makes a good impact?

1. Try before you buy

For those who want to see the colour on their wall before dipping their brush in, the Tint app has an augmented reality feature that lets you “try on” colours and see how it will look in your home and on your walls.

This is a great place to start if you’re not feeling quite ready to start putting paint on the walls but want to know how the end result will look.

The Pico will let you read the colour of your walls before you paint over them.


2. Break colour up with trims

If you’re thinking of incorporating more pastels in your space, saturating a space in a colour you love can create a really cool sensory experience that might be just what you’re looking for.

If you’re wanting to keep it light but still use colour, consider keeping trims white to help break up the colour and keep it easy on the eye.

Bolder, brighter colours, on the other hand, can work especially well for feature walls, coloured archways or half walls.

When going bold, remember you can break it up by using an accent on the trims. 


3. You can do no wrong

We always say that the first rule of colour is there are no rules about colour. If you’re worried about choosing a “wrong” colour — don’t be.

Paint isn’t as permanent as you might think and at the end of the day, if you love a colour and it feels right in your home, then you should trust your instincts.
