Which Colour Paint Should I Choose?

Knowing what style and colour to decorate your home in can be a difficult task. There are no rules when it comes to decorating and you have as much freedom as you want to paint or style a house as you like. Our team work with you to bring your ideas to life, discussing colours and paint types prior to work commencing.

Different colours create varying atmospheres and effects, some which you can use to your advantage. Knowing how these colours work can help you to create an environment that highlights the features of your home and gives you somewhere to relax or entertain. Farrow and Ball, whose products we use, suggest that there are three popular ways that people decorate their homes. These are with coloured walls and white woodwork, light walls and darker woodwork, or with one colour on both walls and woodwork. Coloured walls put with white woodwork can have a striking appearance and if used correctly create the illusion of space. Swapping these colours around works well if you are going for a neutral approach, creating a contemporary look to your home or property. Using the same paint for both the woodwork and walls creates an impression of calm by creating one strong colour.

To add to this, some of the most popular colour schemes include:

  • Scandinavian
  • Coastal
  • Warm
  • Urban
  • Rustic
  • Cool
  • Neutral
  • Dark or Dramatic
  • Industrial
  • Country

Exterior Painting

Maintaining the appearance of the outside of your home or business helps to improve the appearance to those viewing it. Poorly kept paint on exterior walls can devalue your home or put people off visiting your business. Painting exterior walls not only adds a new look to your home, but importantly adds protection for the structure and surfaces of your building against the elements.

Furthermore, when it comes to masonry paint, there are two main types to choose from. These are textured paints and smooth paints, with both offering different finishes. Textured are fantastic to use for a hardworking finish and can help to cover any imperfections with the stonework on your property. Smooth paints are better for a clean finish and can cover small blemishes. Another benefit of these paints is that they are easy to apply to a surface.

There are also several benefits to the use of masonry paint on your property and having an insight into these can help you to decide whether you need to repaint or not. New paint helps to reduce the occurrence of damp as most masonry paint allows a wall to breath without having to absorb excess water. Insulation is also improved by both textured and smooth paint as it creates an invisible barrier, reducing heating bills and improving energy retention. The most obvious benefit comes from the paints ability to improve the overall external appearance. To add to this, new paintwork creates a protective barrier that works to repel oil, dirt, algae and water.

French Polishing

One of the other services that our team can carry out includes French polishing. Whether you are a domestic of commercial customer, we are able to provide a polishing service for you. The wood finishing technique leaves a high gloss surface that is considered to be one of the most attractive ways to display wood. French polishing can be carried out on wooden furniture or features in a number of places including pubs, restaurants, offices, shops, hotels, and homes.

The process will see a member of our team applying several thin layers of Shellac, a type of resin, onto the wood being treated. A brush is used to apply the substance, creating a seal against any moisture and the glossy finish we are all familiar with.
