How To Choose The Right Colours and Paint Like A Professional
Interior painting colours made easy by an Artist.
The great thing about being somewhat a ‘colour expert’, is that we see and understand colours more than what it is on the surface. Getting to know colours is very important as they have a great influence on your mood and makes a great impression on your guest. Start with an idea of what you are inspiring to achieve and work your way through each individual rooms and decide if you are going to blend the elements or have each room play out a different story. Colours are all about bringing life to an environment so choose from the thousands of colour options available when shopping for paint and always seek the expert advice of your friendly colour consultants and sales people. If you can’t afford to hire a professional, you can always approach designing schools and request for their students or interns. They will be eager to assist with fresh new ideas and usually come with a fraction of the cost or even offer to help for free on their uni project.
When setting up your space what do you consider as the easiest option to cleaning up and tidying up? Do you use a bucket of soap and water or do you chuck everything in the bin? When using the right cleaning agent, you will prolong your brush life span so that it is not an additional cost on your next d.i.y.
Colour mixing is a great way to cut cost as combining two shades can give you a completely different feel for your next room. If you have three areas you want to work with then it will be much more cost effective to get creative and combine the two remaining paint!
