3 clever paint tips to give your home a new look

Most of us have that one room in our homes that just doesn’t feel right. It might be too narrow, too dark or too big.

Make a small space feel bigger, invite brightness into a dark room and create zones to make an open-plan area feel more cosy – all of these illusions are easily achievable by combining the right paint colours and using clever techniques from Dulux.

  • Uplift a space with shades of blue: Gentle and soft blue tones can create a balanced and laid-back look, reflecting light more than darker tones, so they will brighten any room with small windows and a lack of natural light. Pair with simple, yet modern furniture with accent colours like lime green and red to create focal points of contrast.

  • Open up spaces with a painted split effect: Open up a long and narrow part of the home, such as a passage or an entrance hall, with a split effect. A warm grey on the bottom half and a lighter shade on the top half will help create a sense of space, making the area feel taller and larger. Paint skirting and doors in white for a sophisticated, crisp finish.

  • Create zones with versatile tones: Zone an open-plan space with warm tones and pastel hues. This zoning technique is practical and beautiful, allowing your space to serve multiple functions in harmony, while creating a cosy, inviting feeling.
