Picking paint colours is the first element of transforming a space or home. It can be an endless pool of confusion for both homeowners and home decorators. How do you know what colours go together? How do I pick a central colour? Where do I get inspiration? Where do I begin? These are all questions we get asked a lot at The Paint Shed, but when it comes to colour there is no right answer. Picking your perfect colour palette comes down to preference, space, light and countless other considerations but if you know what you like, there is a knack to beating indecision. Follow our tips and tricks to find your ideal colour scheme by signing up to our emails and following us online on our social channels.

Finding Your Perfect Palette

Once you have settled on a paint suitable for your surface (if not, follow our guide here) the next step is to decide on your colour and finish. Establishing a colour palette is an important part of the painting process, it makes finding complementary shades easier later down the line.

To begin to map out your colour palette, start by finding points of inspiration. Inspiration can be found anywhere; in seasons, interests, hobbies, memories, travel, featured furniture and even Pinterest. Take a note of anything you like, and begin pairing corresponding colours together. 

Once you’ve found your focal point, test it out. Check whether a colour palette works in your home with sample pots. Pick them up at The Paint Shed from brands such as Farrow & Ball, Little Greene and Johnstones. Tester pots are a fantastic way to play around with colour, and figure out where it will look best. You can apply a sample directly to your wall or another option is to paint an A4 piece of paper and hang it around your house. This can help you uncover what your preferred shade will look like against different furniture, in different lights and at different times of the day.

If you are still struggling to find the right hue for you, fret not! At The Paint Shed we can mix and match a colour that is unique to you, for more information check out our guide to colour matching.  If you or a client has an ideal shade in mind, simply bring a flat, dry sample in-store and we will create your personalised paint palette with our paint colour matcher.Whatever the inspiration we are here to help.
