Paint is a simple way to transform a space.

Choosing colours, working out the prep work required and products needed to complete the project can be daunting. 

Through hands-on, expert service, Wattyl Paint Centres can help take the pain out of painting. 

1. Jump online for colour inspiration

Paint is an inexpensive way to refresh a space. It also allows people to express themselves, but don’t be afraid to follow fads. That’s the beauty of painting – you can pick a colour that’s popular at the time and paint over it months, or even years, down the track.

2. Book an online free colour consultation 

If you’re still struggling to work out how to use colour to bring your space to life, book a colour consultation with one of Wattyl’s colour experts. They’re free and provide you with ideas and schemes to test out.

3. See the bigger picture

Forget swatches – they’re too small to visualise how a colour will actually look. Buy mini sample tins and test the colour on a piece of cardboard at least 30cm by 30cm. Look at it against different walls, pieces of furniture and different times of day so you can see how the colour looks when light hits it from different angles.
