A little colour goes a long way. Colour can change the space around us. It can transform a boring room into whatever your imagination desires. Paintbox will help you create a custom-made look that showcases your tastes. Whether you are looking to update an indoor or outdoor space, the right colour scheme offers a modern yet comfortable touch.
If you’re unsure how to update your space, our Colour Consultation Service is available to help you select the right paint palettes and architectural finishes for your rooms. Paintbox’s colour and design tools give you everything you need to turn your house into a home. We use eco-friendly products from Benjamin Moore, Dulux PPG and Sherwin Williams and our design and paint professionals know how to work within your budget to give you exactly what you want.
Painting ideas are all around us. You may have something in mind already, like a colour you saw in a store. Perhaps you took a trip to a coastal region and were blown away by the ocean’s azure hue? Everything from the extravagant shades of red found in a tropical bird’s plumage to the rugged finish of your grandparents’ woodland cottage can all act as inspiration for your space.
If you are struggling to come up with painting ideas ask yourself the following questions:
For a room such as a bedroom, you may want to convey relaxation. Colours that are softer may be better suited for a bedroom whereas shades that are more energized will work better in a den or family room.
A child’s bedroom offers many painting options besides blue for boys and pink for girls. What are your child’s hobbies? From dinosaurs to cars to science, animals and more, whatever your child loves can be incorporated into their room’s design.
If you are painting an office, think of the work you do. An office with fun, bold colours suggests that although you work hard, you do have a creative side, too. On the other hand, a workspace with clean colours and straight lines says you are all business and prefer to have your fun outside of the office.
The focus of the space is where the eye is automatically drawn. Do you have a piece of furniture that everyone compliments when they walk into your living room? Is there an antique table or sconce in your entranceway that you absolutely adore? Why not make these pieces the focus of the space and use a paint palate to match? Accent pieces like end tables and rugs and details like light fixtures and tapestries can really pull a room together. We will find the perfect shades and tints to flatter your room’s focus piece.
