Why You Should With A Colour Consultant When Painting & Decorating

The term colour consultant is thrown around quite a bit by painting companies that you’d be forgiven for dismissing it as some kind of advertising fluff. But in actual fact, there is lot to gain from hiring one if you’re not 100% sure on what you’re after when painting your home.

It can often be tricky to decide on a colour scheme for new homes in particular. Some people have a set idea about how they want things in a particular room and many are inspired things they see in other homes and follow suit. But for others who are spoiled for choice, it really makes things more straightforward and easier when leaving it to a professional. The fact is that if you don’t get it right, a room may not be as comfortable as it otherwise would.

So what benefits come from hiring a colour consultant for house painting?


Outdoors and Indoors

Choosing colours that work together between the interior and exterior is key. Outdoor colour decisions can depend on the location of the home, the garden that surrounds it and other factors.

For seaside homes in places such as Coogee and Rose Bay, painters might suggest lighter colours on the exterior which is more appropriate in a beach setting.


The Difference in Quality is Obvious

It’s not merely about choosing a colour based on intuition or what seems like it would work. A colour consultant make this as much a scientific decision-making process as anything else. They will look at recent trends, discuss the feeling or atmosphere you want to create in the room and colour psychology among other things to make an informed decision. More often than not the time taken in this is more than worth it and really shines through.


Compliment Existing Furniture and Styles

A room’s interior needs to be stylistically consistent if it’s going to work. Part of the colour consultant’s job is to match the colours with other aspects of the room including what kind of room it is, how much sunlight comes in, its size, the blinds/curtains, furniture, etc. Often this can be the most challenging part of the colour consultant’s job.

Get Multiple Recommendations

A good colour consultant will often suggest more than one solution that is suitable for a room and present you with similar examples to give you a better idea about how it will look. Having a number of recommendations can offer you a greater perspective to make a good decision. 


Additional Decorating Ideas

Many colour consultancy have experience in providing general decorating advice as well. While this isn’t generally a part of the service, you can often get some valuable advice on how to furnish your home. Choosing the right colours is the foundation on which you can build a unique look.

There are many colour consultants operating throughout Sydney and inner suburbs such as Surry Hills and Bondi. Speak to the team at Premier Painting for more information about choosing colours for your paint job.
