Choosing paint colours can be scary at times when you are met with an array of different options. Sometimes you pick a colour and bring it home only to realise that the colour looks different in your home than it did in the store! The reason for this is that paint colours can be affected by the lighting of the room and the different elements in it. It’s important to pick up testers and try them out in your room before committing to colour choice.

An easy option, rather than painting directly on the wall, is to paint out the testers on a A4 white card using 2 coats of paint and then you can move this around the room like a mobile sample to see what the colour looks like in different lights.

In this video from “The Good Room” which is on the RTE Player, Jo and Caroline from Gaff Interiors show how this works in an attic extension in Kimmage.
