10 Commandments of Choosing Colour

Australian paint brand, Taubmans has launched a suite of online tools to help take the guess work out of colour selection. Many homeowners end up painting the interior of their homes white to save the hassle of choosing the wrong colour.Now, with these new digital tools, Taubmans hopes Australians will embrace adding a splash of colour to their homes.


Taubmans Brand Ambassador, Shaynna Blaze has created Taubmans 10 Commandments of Colour which will debunk common colour myths and arm the homeowner with the knowledge they need to choose colour correctly. “It surprises me how many homeowners resort to painting with white when Taubmans has a catalogue of over five and a half thousand paint shades.” explains Shaynna. “By breaking down the paint selection process into simple steps, the DIYer can feel empowered to choose the perfect colour for their home.”

So head on over to the Taubmans website and have a play. You can upload a photo of your room and then change the colour so you will have a pretty good idea what the room will look like before you head out to buy a can of paint.


I would still recommend you grab some swatches or a sample pot and test it in your own home in your light before you paint the whole room. Or better still, a Colour Consultant will help you narrow down your choices and give valid reasons why colours will or won’t work in your home. This Saturday Taubmans Colour Consultants will be at a Bunnings store near you and available to assist you with your choices.


If you would like assistance choosing colours for inside or out of your home, contact us for an appointment.
