With literally thousands of Dulux colours to choose from, finding the right one can seem complicated. There are a few things to watch out for when you make your selection.
Cooler colours have hints of blues and greens, and are designed to calm and soothe. Warmer colours like reds and oranges add vibrance and life. Cooler colours appear to recede, adding visual enlargement, where warmer colours draw attention.
The way your room is lit impacts the way the colours in it will appear. It is always best to test colours in natural light at various times throughout the day, as well as at night with artificial lighting incuding downlights and lamps.
One of the most transformational aspects of colour, tone refers to lightness or darkness. Tone adds form and shape to objects, and can alter our perception of a space, making it appear smaller or larger.
Paint can absorb properties of the things around it. Red brick exterior walls, vibrant gardens, and brightly coloured furniture and artwork can bring out the undertones in paint colours, and can change the way they look in your space.
