The simplicity of a breakfast bar is always an appealing way to create a sit down area where floor space is limited. Define the wall space around the bar with fresh bright colours. We’ve used “Lime Green” and “Silver Spoon” Easyclean matt for durability with a low sheen finish.
Tips: Breakfast bars can be inexpensive and made from reclaimed material, such as old table tops, counters, floorboards or planks.
Using colour on every surface can dramatically alter the appearance of a room. Applying colour to the ceiling, for example, will not only create a talking point but can make a room appear larger or smaller depending on the colour choice and how it is applied. Here we’ve extended the colour down from the ceiling and onto the walls, which gives the effect that the ceiling extends much higher than it actually is.
Tips: Paint and mount wooden boxes to display your favourite possessions. Use colour to make a room appear much larger. Create the illusion of height by painting the ceiling, or use darker colours on recesses or short walls makes a room appear larger.
Bathrooms really benefit from fresh colours, citrus tones or crisp aquas (blues or greens) all work well. Always keep in mind that a wipeable finish capable of withstanding condensation is best. In this case we’ve paired “Hot Toddy” Breatheasy Mid Sheen with Pure Brilliant White Kitchen & Bathroom Mid Sheen.
Tips: Not every colour off the shelf will be available in the finish you require so consider the finish you need for the function of the room first. Don’t be afraid to ask in-store for advice on colour, preparation or finish, the staff will be more than willing to help you.
