Hiring Brisbane painters to transform your home is an investment, and choosing the wrong colour isn’t a cheap or easy fix. Our free colour consultant takes the guesswork out of colour selection, ensuring your vision comes to life.
In this article, we’ll explore the power of colour in both interior and exterior painting projects and explain what you can expect from our free colour consultant service. Let’s get started right away.
The power of colour
Whether you are looking for the perfect Queenslander house colours - including interior colour schemes for your Queenslander - to maintain your home’s heritage look or a sleek colour palette that expresses your minimalist sensibility, curating a selection of complementary hues is no easy feat.
You might start the process by conducting some online research, creating a mood board of sorts. But your home doesn’t look exactly like the ones in the picture. Maybe your hardwood flooring is a little more orange-toned, your kitchen stark white rather than soft grey, or your living room couch a deep forest green and not a pale duck-egg blue.

Lighting also plays a significant role in how a colour looks. You might have seen the optical illusion above. Believe it or not, square A and square B are the same shade, highlighting just how much our perception of a colour can change. With this in mind, the amount of direct sunlight your property gets will impact your colour choice.
The wrong colour selection can have devastating impacts on the look, feel, and critically, the value of your house. Colours go in and out of style – the wrong scheme can make your home look stuffy and outdated.
Colours also influence a room’s mood, with cool tones promoting a sense of calm and warm tones creating a lively, welcoming atmosphere. If you think of your property as an investment, a modern, neutral palette can yield you greater returns.
Free colour consultant: what to expect
Curious about our free colour consultancy and want to know more? Here’s what you can expect.
Selecting paint colours that enhance your home
Your colour consultant will first get to know you, your home, and the rooms/areas that will be painted. You will begin to consider the following factors:
- What kind of mood do you want to create? That might be serene or vibrant, sleepy or productive.
- What kind of style are you hoping to achieve? Do you like traditional homes with wallpaper installed or contemporary homes with clean walls? Maybe you’re looking for a Hamptons, coastal, or Scandinavian look.
- What furniture do you already have? Unless you are re-doing your home top to bottom or planning to sell your property, it’s worth choosing colours that complement the furniture you own.
- What colour scheme do you have in mind? Don’t worry if you’re completely unsure to start.
Combining colours and tones for a harmonious finished product
If your painting project involves more than one colour – such as an accent colour for trims or a feature wall – it’s crucial that the hues you select work harmoniously together. The last thing you want is two colours that clash!
Combining colours is an art form, one that, as experienced house painters with a trusted colour consultant, we understand inside and out.
Choosing the right paint products for your project
Selecting the right colours is just one part of the process – to ensure the colours you choose show up true, stand up to the elements, and remain vibrant over time, you need the right paint products.
From paint primers and sealants to indoor and outdoor paint formulations, our team will guide you toward leading-edge paint products that meet the unique needs of your home.
