HOUSE PAINTING ESSENTIALS
House Painting That Lasts!
When it comes to house painting essentials and picking a paint colour, you can't just ask for white! There are a plethora of choices from crisp fresh whites, warm whites, and pure whites. Colour is a preference decision for each; however, some great tools can help you make a critical choice between those shades you love, such as Farrow and Ball's Middleton Pink and Wimborne White!
Colour Wheels and Paint Chips
Colour Wheels and paint cards/chips help you narrow the scope of your colour decision-making. Between the many different hues and shades of each colour, we hope to offer (if in stock) some colour wheels/cards from several different major paint manufacturers. You can borrow these if you like for a few days to sample and make your selection. Colour wheels are also very helpful in matching the colour to an existing wall or a favourite object.
Online Colour Tools
Many of the major paint manufacturers in the UK have several interactive websites & some online tools:
