Helpful tips to transform your customers home this summer

We asked our Dulux Ireland Colour Hero, Holly Bryan, for some helpful tips to transform your customers home this summer, she's also shared some useful answer to some common questions! ...
CREATING A 5 COLOUR PALLET 1. Choose a white or a pale neutral  • LRV over 80% for cabinets, doors and frames 2. Choose a neutral  • LRV over 60% this is the main wall colour 3. Choose a darker shade of colour 2 • This is great for feature walls plus possibly cabinets and doors 4. Now, add a colour • This is the additional feature wall colour and can be used for soft furnishings 5. Add another (something vivid and bright) • This colour may never go on the wall but will be useful for your client when shopping for the soft furnishings to complete the look easily as it has been chosen in advance to compliment the paint Some common questions asked by your client? How to stop grey looking blue?  Top tip; you need to introduce a warm undertone. A warm grey will fix this problem. Designer grey 50YY63/041 is a beautiful warm grey. My hallway is dark - help! Top tip; a warm light colour will help - brown based pinks are great for this as even in shadows they look welcoming. Depth of colour is important here too - too light in the shade can loose the effect and too dark will make the space feel smaller. Cameo stone 60YR64/038 is a great choice. I’m painting my kitchen cabinets what colour should I choose? Top tip; cabinets are re-painted less often than walls. If you don’t have a colour that you love in mind and want to be cautious choose a warm white with neutral undertones, this will match any future wall colours. Ivory white in satinwood is a great option. You can still be bold with your wall colour choices!. I want to do something fun in my child’s room but it’s very small, what can I do? Top tip; keeping the walls light and bright will keep the room looking as large as possible. Introducing colour on the ceiling and/or as a small pattern on the walls (think a large circle near the bed head or a big triangle in one corner) can bring a fun design element to the space. In addition a darker ceiling can make the room feel even more cosy and cocoon like.

Getting the most from Dulux exterior paints

We hope you are enjoying our new and exclusive monthly members newsletter GET THE EDGE which launched in April. As part of this, we have been talking to some of ...
our members to find out more about the challenges you face on a day to day basis. This month Oisin Butler has shared his personal tips on how he gets the most out of Dulux Exterior Paints. If you would like to share any of your decorating tips, we would love to hear from you! Details on how to contact us can be found at the bottom of this page! Getting the most from Dulux exterior paints By Professional painter, Oisin Butler – Oisin butler Ltd, oisinbutler.ie Dulux is probably one of the best known paints in Ireland and the go to paint for professional painters and DIY painters alike. So with summertime approaching, I have put together a few tips to share that I find help get a sharper, longer lasting finish when painting outside. 1.Proper prior preparation prevents poor performance! In a nutshell, preparation is key. Whatever the surface you plan to paint, you will need to make sure it's clean, dry & sound. Taking a shortcut and painting straight over dirt or grime will pretty much guarantee that the paint fails. Exterior painting - get all your ducks in a row Like any other painting job, the first thing you need to do is plan out what you will need. If painting the exterior of a customer's house for example, it's best to take a walk around and see what needs to be done. Start at the top and work your way down, front, back and sides. Usually with a standard house, I would recommend to start with fascia & soffit, walls, windows, window sills, doors & plinth. Assuming your customer already has their colours picked out, then all you need to do now is figure out the quantities of paint needed. I recommend getting a bit of everything that's required but don’t get too much! Before you start painting you will need to take care of preparation. Every surface you plan to paint will need to be prepared to some degree. Here's a list of the types of standard preparation needed for certain areas: •Walls - fungicidal wash is usually needed. Loose paint should be scrapped away, and any bare areas of masonry will most likely need a stabilising solution. If you are unsure if any area needs to be stabilised, then just rub your hand across the wall. If the wall is chalky at all it will leave a chalky mark on the palm of your hand, this means it needs to be stabilised. Dulux have a great solvent-based stabiliser that will take care of this. Just make sure the area to be stabilised is dry first! Best to leave the stabiliser for a day before painting over. •Fascia & soffit, windows, doors, frames and any other types of woodwork – first thing you need to do is give the old paintwork a quick clean. If the paintwork isn’t clean, then when you start sanding it you’ll just be driving dirt into the surface and clogging up your sandpaper. You can use sugar soap or even just methylated spirits on a clean rag. When the surface is clean you should then sand off any loose paint and generally sand off the sheen of the old paint, this will help the new paint to get a good grip on the surface. •Window sills - these can be either finished in a gloss paint or an emulsion. If finished in a gloss then treat them as woodwork when preparing, otherwise treat the window sills as you would the walls. 2.Time To Paint When all your surfaces are prepared then it's time to get set up for painting! Some things to keep in mind... •You should use drop sheets or paint sheets to cover the ground around the area you are painting. •If there are cars in the general area, you should either move them or throw some plastic sheets over to protect them from over-spray.Windows can also be covered with plastic. •PVC downpipes should be wrapped with masking paper. •Have a look around for anything else that needs to be protected, it's easier to spend time at the beginning making sure everything is covered than it is at the end trying to scrub paint off something that shouldn’t be painted! When painting - start at the top and work down: •Always start with the fascia & soffit. I usually use Dulux oil-based undercoat & mixed to the colour of the finish coat. It helps to add a little bit of white spirits to give it a bit more flow (. 5% white spirits should be fine). •When painting the walls with Weathersheild, it helps to add a very small amount of water, especially if it's a warm day, this will stop it drying to quickly and give a better flow. If you are painting over new plaster then add about 10% water to the first coat. If painting over new pebble dash, then you need to add more water to the first coat and about 10% for the following coats. •For the finish coat on exterior woodwork, I would recommend you to use Dulux oil-based gloss where oil-based gloss has been used in the past. If the previous coating was water-based, then it would be better to stick with water-based gloss again. For a longer lasting finish it's best to use gloss. Dulux Weathersheild is a great paint to use, it has built in biocides to reduce the growth of algae and it has a very slight sheen that helps prevent the build-up of dirt. It also dries quite quickly which is great if there’s rain on the way, and there’s usually rain on the way!. Always important to focus on the preparation, then you are guaranteed to get a great long-lasting finish!

Dulux Weathershield

Made in Ireland , For Irish Weather Unpredictable weather demands more from exterior paint. That's why Dulux Weathershield is the most trusted choice for Irish homes. Help Choosing Your Colour When ...
choosing colours, it's important to understand that shades will also affect the appearance of your home. Light and muted shades will make your house seem larger, whereas darker tones will make your home seem smaller. Dark shades on trim, however, provide a pleasant contrast and draw attention to detail. Painting the window reveals in the same colour of the windows will give the impression that your windows are bigger. Our full Weathershield exterior paint colour range includes muted shades, which are very well suited to our grey Irish light. While it may seem strange at first, you want your houses outside to match and harmonise with the inside. By doing this, you give your home a more welcoming, warm feeling. Your interior paint and the colour of your furnishings should always play a role in the decision-making regarding the exterior of your home, just as your exterior should have a degree of influence over the inside. Finally, have fun with choosing your colours, but be sure that your colours complement one another and that they are not too busy or distracting. Click here to find out more here

Walls that make you go wow

Embrace your creative side and decorate your customers home with these inspiring Dulux tips Almost half of the people who have moved house in our recent global survey said that ...
making a good first impression is important when it comes to their new home’s appearance. Choosing a vibrant Dulux colour is a great way to stamp some personality into a home, but why not go one step further and create a truly personal look that has real wow-factor? We asked Dulux Ireland Colour Consultant, Cora Collins, for some inspiring tips to transform your customers home from ordinary into something truly extraordinary, just using paint. 1. The clever use of warm and cool colours can change the perception of a room or space Cooler colours include greys, blues and greens. Whereas colours in the warm family include yellows, creams, orange, reds and pinks. Painting a small room in a cooler colour such as Freshwater Pearl will open up the space and make it feel bigger whereas painting a large bright room in a deep warm colour will draw the eye to the warm colour and can create a feeling of a cosy space. 2. Warm colours advance It's always important to remember that warm colours advance and cooler colours recede. So use this tip to help make a small space feel bigger and add warmth to an open space. Don't forget to consider Dulux Colour of the Year 2019 - Spiced Honey here as it is a warm amber tone, inspired by the beauty and versatility of honey itself. 3. Adding height to walls Add height to the walls of your customers home by painting the skirting/trim the same shade as the wall. 4. Don’t forget your ceiling! Don't forget your ceiling and trim when painting a small room such as a dormer room in a home. The ceiling can be painted in the same colour as the walls to blur the line between the ceiling and the wall. Therefore creating a feeling of more space. 5. Avoid too many colour choices Try to avoid too many colour choices for your customers home. Five colours is adequate for an average size house and this would include the trim.

4 Decorating trends to impress your customer

1. Incorporating contrasting colours where old meets new If you're looking to create a grey feature wall but have been asked to add that something a little extra special,then a ...
bright colour paired against a slate grey will help inject some welcome colour onto a grey feature wall. Or, pair a mid-tone shade such as Deep Fossil OONN 31/000 with mustard yellow and a neutral colour like Egyptian Cotton 40YY 65/061 on adjoining walls, and you've got yourself a super-trendy scheme just like that. Easy! Expert Tip: If your customer has wooden furniture and an already existing bright colour scheme in their room, you could also add a bold shade of Dulux Trade Quick Dry Satinwood on trims and wooden chairs. 2. Simply Scandi The Scandinavians know a thing or two about calm, muted tones. So take a leaf out of their super-stylish interiors book and keep things simple and sleek. A lighter grey shade like Goose Down 30GG 61/010 can look chic next to a deep Royal Blue 50BB_08257. Make these colours your focal point and let the walls do the talking. Expert Tip: Minimalism really is key here, so don't go overboard with extra colour. Just use subtle hints to a secondary to extenuate the grey colour scheme.   3. Check this out Using different shades of the same colour can create a relaxed feature wall - the perfect addition to add something a little different to a customer's stylish bedroom. Layering Dulux Trade neutral colours will create a calming effect too, so they'll wake up stylishly refreshed every morning. Try lighter shades such as Rock Salt 50BG 83/009 and Polished Pebble 00NN 72/000 with darker shades such as Chic Shadow 00NN 31/000 and Natural Slate 30BB 31/022 Expert Tip: To upsell your job - This trick also looks great in their living room and will frame a beautiful fireplace nicely. 4. Coastal themes Greys don't just work well on jobs when a modern brief is specified. Grey paint can also be used on jobs that require a rural, coastal, or summer feel where a softer approach is specified. Pearl Grey 50BG 72/006 is a soft shade from Dulux Trade that lends a relaxed and sunny feel to a room. Pair with a pale pastel colour like Jade White to leave a relaxed feeling that they'll be happy to kick back and relax in for years to come. Expert Tip: Such delicate colours on the walls look lovely next to a light wooden floor. If the luxury of a wooden floor to paint is available, suggest painting their woodwork white to match with Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell.
