Colour Consulting – Selecting Colours

Repainting the interior or exterior of your home starts with selecting the colour scheme, but looking at a wall of paint chips can feel overwhelming.  Where do you start?  How can you tell which shade of white will work best?  Our Colour Consulting service can make sense out of all those colour chips.

During a Colour Consultation we visit your home or commercial space and review your requirements.  These could be interior colours for one room or the whole house, a new exterior scheme, colours and materials for the kitchen or bathroom, or some or all of these.

We discuss the overall ‘look and feel’ that you want to achieve, find out your likes and dislikes, and consider the lighting conditions in each space.  After that we start looking at colour samples and determine which colours best suit the space and create the look you desire.

We can design colour palettes for:

  • Exteriors – from revamping an outdated scheme to updating Heritage colours
  • Colorbond – selecting colours for guttering, downpipes, garage doors and powder coated surfaces
  • Interiors – from updating the colour scheme in one room to designing a palette for the entire house
  • Commercial Interiors – updating colours to fit in with existing elements or designing an entirely new look
  • Kitchens and Bathrooms – colours for polyurethane joinery and bench tops

Colour Consultation – how it works

We visit you on-site for an initial Colour Consultation, which can be for interior or exterior colours, or a combination of both.

You will receive a follow-up report which outlines all areas and colours discussed, contains samples of all selected colours, and a specification sheet outlining colour placement for your painter’s reference.

For exterior colour schemes we can produce a rendered drawing of the exterior to show the placement of each colour.  This is particularly useful if you have a period home with detailed architectural features.

Our Colour Consulting services are generally priced as a package for larger jobs or at an hourly rate for smaller jobs.  You will be advised if a larger job also requires a follow-up visit to finalise your colour palette selections.

To discuss requirements and pricing please call Fiona on 0402 205 656 or complete the form on the Contact page.
