To help you pick co-ordinating colours, use paint colour “strips”. E.g. if you’re looking at a mid grey -say a No 4 on the Dulux chart, you can pick a No 4 on the yellow strip and you know that the tones will work together. Pinterest or Houzz LINKS are great to look at what paint colours appeal to you, you can then match these from paint colour charts.
Always try before you buy – always get tester pots of your chosen paint colours so you can paint a large enough area to really get a sense of how it will work in the room. Paint an A4 piece of paper or card and stick it to your chosen wall. How it looks in the morning can be very different to how it will look in the evening and under your lighting. Popping a colour sample on the wall and living with it for a few days is normally a good idea.
Why not try the Dulux app – it’s a great tool and can help you visualise what the paint colours might look like in your room, with the ability to change your mind as many times as you like until you’re happy with the final outcome. We’d still advise getting tester pots to try them in real life though!
We hope this helps! Remember, we’re here to help you with the decorating should you need us!
