What colours should I use?
Solid colour advice
The choice of colour for your painting project is an important one. There is no right or wrong answer when choosing colours, and at the end of the day it’s a personal choice. So don’t stress too much and keep the following tips in mind. Paint 2 IMPRESS will help you work through your options so at the end of your painting project, the exterior of your house looks great.
Light makes a difference
There are SO many colour sample cards and brochures available at painting shops and the local hardware store. You can easily get overwhelmed as you start questioning what the difference is between what appears to be 50 identical ‘whites’. The important thing to remember when choosing colours for external surfaces, is that lighter colours will reflect heat and darker colours will draw heat in.
Dulux and other leading painting brands make sample paint pots. This means that you can select your top few colours, get a sample pot of your colours, and splash them on the area in question so you can see what the colour will do in your space.
Match your surrounding surfaces
It’s also worth making a paint colour choice in light of the colours surrounding the area to be painted, such as your bricks and roof colours, so that the colours all work together.
