At Housen Gold Coast, our house painters and roof painters offer a colour consultation before we start working on a project. This colour consultation is an opportunity to select your paint colours.
This can be quite a confusing decision, as there are almost endless options. With a professional coat of paint, your house painting or roof painting project will likely endure for years to come, so it’s a considerable commitment.
So, where do you start when choosing paint colours? Our Gold Coast painters will suggest that you take a number of steps when thinking about your paint colours. Of course, everyone’s needs are different, so you should take your time when thinking about your paint colours. These steps might be a helpful starting point.
What Colours Do You Like?
Of course, you’re going to be seeing a lot of your paint colours, once they are on your roof or walls. So, it’s important that you like the result. A good place to start is to think about the colours you like. You might want to look at photographs of other houses online, taking note of the shades and colours that appeal to you. That way, your house painting job can start with your preferences in mind.
What Colours Exist Elsewhere in Your House?
Another important step is to look at your existing colour scheme. Unless you are purchasing your first house or completing a full renovation, chances are that you’ve already committed to a couple of colours. Your professional house painters can help you to choose a wall paint or roof paint that complements your existing colour scheme.
Are You Planning on Selling Soon?
If you’re thinking about selling your house, you might want to think more about what might appeal to a potential buyer. We’ve written a separate article about some things to consider in this situation. If you’d like to learn more, our house painting Gold Coast team can answer your questions.
