Paint Colour Hints and Tips
Painting is a great, cost-effective way to refresh your home. Before you get started, it's important to do some research to help you get the best result.
Think about how colour schemes flow from room to room in your house or apartment. Then consider your new colour scheme next to key pieces of furniture, like your couch or wall unit. Bunnings Paint Colour Planner will help you make sure everything works together by updating a photo of your room with the new colours you are considering.
Select a focal point in your room, such as a clock, couch or rug, and base your colour palette around it. That way you’ve got a key item to bring the look together. Alternatively, you can choose a mood you’d like to create and pick colours that inspire that feeling. A shade of green for example may evoke a natural and cooling effect on a space, while yellow can emulate sunshine and warmth.
Remember the 60-30-10 rule for interior spaces. It's where 60% of the room is decorated in a dominant colour, 30% in a secondary hue and 10% dedicated to an accent colour. This rule helps you balance your colour choices and won't leave you with overpowering or mismatched walls.
