Colour and Paint:

Paint is one of the most obvious ways to bring colour to our interiors so choose the right type of paint.

We use paint all the time and it is possibly the most economical solution for wall and ceiling covering – or is it? Today there are so many types of paints on the market and the pricing structure is so very different. As part of our Colour Programme this video concentrates on colour testing and how to choose the right one for your scheme.

Paint companies

Every paint company will have their own special unique properties added to their ingredients and unless you are prepared to spend time testing properly you can make a mistake which is time consuming to put right. 

Paint can also be very expensive, particularly if you are matching up to wallpapers and using their recommended paints that co-ordinate. 

If you use cheaper options it can mean more coats to get the density required and a perfect match. Therefore take great care when colour matching using different makes of paint as it can make a difference to the colour and the quality as well as the price.
