Finding the best paint finish is just as important as choosing the perfect colour. Our paint guide makes your decision easy.
Have you chosen the colour palette that’s going to revamp your home? When you do, it’s important to ensure those colours stay in top notch condition for years to come, with the correct paint finish. Depending on the surface and the room, different types of paint offer varying levels of shine, durability and suitability. Here’s everything you need to know to choose the perfect one.
Before launching into Dulux paint types for the best finish, it’s time to make a firm decision about your colour palette. If you’re struggling, remember that you can break all the rules because all that really matters is that you love the colours you choose. If you’ve picked them based on your hobbies, interests, favourite shades, happy memories or the feelings you’d like to enhance in the home, you’ve done a great job!
It’s easy to check that your colour scheme works well in your space, with paint testers. Buy a collection of your favourite hues and apply two coats of each colour to pieces of A4 lining paper, then wait for them to dry. Go on a colour adventure throughout your home, by hanging sample pieces on the walls and observing them in changing light across the day. You’ll soon spot the perfect combinations for you, so you can move on and pick a paint finish.
Are you on a mission to paint the entire home, or just a wall or two? Regardless, you can combat grubby little fingers with Easycare paint, ensure durability with exterior paint, save time with quick drying finishes and brighten up dark spaces with light reflective paint. To make the process simple, write down all the different surfaces and rooms that require painting, then jot down the corresponding Dulux paint types from this easy guide.
