Do you live in the North Shore and Northern Beaches area of Sydney and are looking to have your house, commercial premises or strata complex painted but feeling overwhelmed with all the choices? Then read on and hopefully, we can take away some of the stress and overwhelm.
Choose the right exterior paint colours for your home around Northern Beaches and North Shore
A great way to start the process when choosing the right paint colour for your home is to visualise your favourite colours and what works together and compliments each other. Also take a walk around the outside of your home and really look at the colour of things that are permanent or just hard to change or you wish not to change such as the roof, gutters, garage doors, windows, exterior doors, veranda railings and even the concrete or paving you have in your driveway and surrounding paths.
It is also a good idea to look around your street at what your neighbours have and even go for a walk or drive around North Shore and Northern Beaches or the area you live in as it’s a great way to see what exterior paint colours have been chosen in your area. This is a particularly fantastic way to look at colour choices if you’re a visual person and like to physically see what colours work together.
You also need to take into account the style of your house and the environment around North Shore and Northern Beaches when choosing your house paint colours. Is your house modern, heritage, traditional, bush or beachside? Do you have features you wish to showcase or areas you wish to hide? All this can be done when choosing the right paint colour for the exterior of your home but take the time to factor the above points in when deciding.
Once you have narrowed it down and have an idea of what colours you are wanting then pick up a Taubmans paint chart at your local hardware or paint store or view their online paint chart and have a look at what is available in the exterior paint colours you are liking.
Painting your commercial premises
If you are looking at repainting the exterior of your commercial premises then your first deciding factor will be whether your own business also resides in the premises or whether the premises is tenanted. If your own business does reside within then you can go the extra mile and tailor the exterior paint colours around your branding and signage but if the premises is tenanted then you might like to concentrate more on neutral colours to appeal to a broader market should you need a new tenant down the track.
When choosing the exterior paint colour as you do when choosing the right paint colour for your home you can also take a look around the neighbourhood at other commercial properties and other businesses to see what exterior paint colours and accenting colours have been used or even book an appointment with one of our Colour Consultants for advice.
