The Finishing Touch: Choosing the Perfect Paint for Your Home
Finding the perfect shade of the perfect colour can be a daunting task. You want your luxury home to be perfect, which can make choosing your colours even more challenging. Often, the colour of your home’s walls sets the scene for the rest of your interior home design. Here are our expert tips from a luxury home builder to help you choose the perfect paint for your home.
How do you want people to feel when they enter your new home? Do you want them to feel relaxed and comfortable, entertained and energised, or welcoming and calm? When you get a better sense of what sort of mood you want your luxury home to project, it is often a great starting point to choose a colour scheme. Energising colours tend to be your primary bright: red, blue and yellow. Relaxing colours are often neutrals: white, grey and black. Comfortable and cosy colours are usually natures hues: brown, green, gold and orange.
The type of paint that you choose will also affect how it will look when added to your custom home. Enamel paint is the most durable type of paint, and great for high use locations such as doors, skirting boards and window architraves. Low Sheen Acrylic paint is a great way to add a smooth and velvety look to your finish. Low Sheen Acrylic is a durable type of paint that is great for rooms like children’s bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens.
