About Dexter Mclaughlin painting & decorating

When decorating a room in your home, choice of colour may seem to be the easy part, but requires some thought. You may for instance have your mind set on recent colour trends- bold yellow or orange- but ask yourself " does it work for the space i have ?" The light levels in the room? How can i adapt?
Professional interior designers follow a set of informal rules designed on priciples & elements- space, line,light, colour, texture and pattern. There is a need to keep all things in balance to achieve a good result.
Do you want a room that is in keeping with the period of your home? In older properties look for classic colours- such as farrow & ball.
When using white remember there are different shades of white that compliment strong bold colours better.
Also remember that excisting furniture can be painted to compliment the new decor ie wardrobes, chests of drawers, kitchen units which could all have an effect on budget.
Careful planning is essential when undertaking remodeling work so you can enjoy the decorating for years come.
