Our paint experts bring beautiful colours to your life

Nothing transforms a space as dramatically as colour. Without colour, our world would be a poorer place. Colours influence and reflect our emotions and thoughts.

 

But where do you start to create the right colour palette for you?

 

One of Paintforme’s key painting services is our colour scheme expertise. We have years of knowledge and experience in creating colour palettes to suit our clients and their important spaces.

THERE IS A SCIENCE TO CHOOSING PAINT COLOURS. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THIS WORKS:

Yellow

Yellow is a happy colour, full of sunshine. Ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and dining rooms, it also feels spacious and welcoming in halls, entries and small spaces. But keep it under control. Large expanses create tension.

Orange

Orange is exciting and promotes enthusiasm and energy. If you have an exercise room, go for this colour and release all that physical energy and emotion.

Red

Red raises energy levels, creates excitement and draws people together, encouraging conversation, especially at night by lamplight. It's great for living and dining rooms where it is rich and elegant.

Purple

Purple is rich, dramatic and luxuriously sophisticated in its darker shades, and as a secondary colour it gives depth to a colour scheme. Lighter shades, such as lavender or lilac, give bedrooms a warm restfulness.

Blue

Blue is calming, relaxing and serene and works well in bedrooms and bathrooms. Watch the shades though. Light blue can feel cold if there is little natural light so balance it with warm colours for the furnishings. Dark blues can feel sad as a main colour scheme so look for warmer or brighter blues.

Green

Green is considered the most restful colour and can suit any room. It cools the kitchen, while in the living room it helps unwind and has a warm comfort.

Neutrals

Neutrals (black, grey, white and brown) are flexible and provide the backdrop to a colour scheme.

Add colour to liven things up and reduce it to calm things down. Black can be a very useful colour to give a scheme depth but use it sparingly.

Simple rules will guide you in matching the perfect paint colours to the lifestyle you want.

 

Is your room south facing? Bold colours will complement the brightness of your room, working with the natural light to create a balance and harmony. Conversely, if you are north facing, experiment with lighter shades to brighten even the remotest corner.

 

Nature too can teach us about colour. Next time you are out and about, look around you. What works in the natural environment will work in your home too.

And think about highlights. Small areas that pop up and surprise and delight the eye, giving focus to an expanse of colour.

 

Paintforme will bring years of experience and knowledge in delivering expert painting services to help you find your colours.
