colourNowadays it’s not just a case of painting the room red or blue, you have a host of options at your disposal. That’s why you need to spend some time looking at the Dulux colour palette. Dulux has an array of colours on offer to suit absolutely everyone. The colours are broken down into colour families. From reds to whites and everything in between, the Dulux colour palette is teeming with a variety of colours, meaning that when our customers buy Dulux paint they really are spoilt for colour choice.

The colour palate is also split into sub-divisions to provide you will an array of options. Whether you are after bold and bright colours or you are looking for something slightly more neutral and muted, the Dulux colour palette has been carefully crafted to provide you with more options than any other paint manufacturer.

You may be asking yourself, but isn’t that going to make choosing a colour harder? Possibly, but if you incorporate a clear strategy and inject a little confidence then you’ll find your perfect colour in no time at all.

The best way to go about picking a colour from the Dulux colour palette is to make use of Dulux’s handy paint testers. Using these little testers will help you save money while trying a wide variety of shades. This will also give you the opportunity to see what the paint looks like when it’s dry. Bingo, wet paint looks very different to dry paint so to ensure that you get the correct shade allow the paint to dry before purchasing 20 litres.

Another thing you need to consider is which direction the room is facing. North facing rooms generally receive less light than the south facing rooms. This means that the colours you pick will be slightly darker and colder in these rooms. A handy trick is to paint a double coat of your colour of choice onto an A4 piece of paper. Stick the piece of paper to the wall and observe how the colour changes throughout the day. That way you’ll know if the colour changes into a shade which you don’t quite fancy as the day goes on.

It’s important to really consider your options before you make a decision. Just think about it, the colour may be on your walls for up to 15 years. However, when you do make a decision, stick to it, and follow through with confidence. After all, you chose that particular shade for a reason.
