Many homeowners and commercial property owners arrive at the decision that they are not going to do their painting and decorating themselves – maybe because they don’t like it, perhaps because they are no good at it or just because the job is too large and they haven’t got the spare hours to complete it on time. Knowing that you need to hire professional painters and decorators in Surrey is one thing but being able to explain your chosen colour scheme to them might be another altogether.
So why is this? Well, firstly it is probably because the customer hasn’t yet decided on what colour scheme they would like. So how can the customer help their painters and decorators by making this decision?
One of the best ways to get colour inspiration is by thinking about and looking at the colours they like. Everyone finds inspiration in different colours and by looking at colour charts they can determine which ones stand out to them.
Another way to get inspiration for paint or wallpaper colours is by looking around other people’s homes. By visiting friends and family people can see what colours they have chosen for their interior and exterior walls and hopefully get some inspiration for their own home – or at least decide what they like and what they dislike.
Interior design magazines are another good way to find inspiration to choose the colours your painter & decorator can use. Whilst they often focus on very expensive houses and those who have an endless budget for interior design, it can be very useful to get some ideas particularly as they always include the latest fashions and trends.
If people are still stuck for inspiration after all of this they can always contact their painters and decorators in Surrey for some advice. After all, professional painters and decorators are used to it and will be able to cast their expert eye over the blank walls and make helpful suggestions and recommendations on what colours would work well given the size of the space, the amount of natural light and any furniture or furnishings that need to be incorporated.
