Choosing a Paint Colour

You fall in love with that gorgeous paint colour a friend has in their house, or you see a gorgeous picture online or in a magazine that you dream would be perfect in your home.

Now you start making your plans by planning out a colour scheme and choosing paint colours. However, this can be daunting as every paint product manufacturers have their own wide selection of colours. From dark to light shades and everything in between.

We’ve put together a couple of ideas that explain the power of choosing paint colours, understanding how colour combinations work, and how they affect our mood and understanding the psychology behind why we choose either a green or blue, a red or a yellow.

We all have our favourites and your individual selection may not be the same as someone else’s and that’s ok. It’s about being “Unique”. Each of us are unique so why shouldn’t our paint colours be more about us too.

​Our colour choices are personal and as unique as we are. When we choose them it’s because they best describe our personalities.

Paint Colour and Paint Finishes

Paint Sheen is another word for how shiny the paint will look when applied to the walls. Paint Finish refers to the durability and ease of care of the paint.

Knowing the difference between the paint sheen and finishes is a choice to be made depending on the room. For example the best sheen to use in a kitchen or bathroom would be a semigloss as it is more durable in these rooms with higher humidity levels.
