  • Natural light
    If your room has a window, take into account the way that window is facing.
    Rooms with a north-facing window get less direct, usually cool light, so you may want to go with a warm colour. South-facing rooms get the most direct light, making colours intense, which means a cooler, softer shade might be preferable. If your window faces east, you’ll get yellow light in the morning, but no light later on in the day. So, depending on what time a day you use the room most, you may want to cool it down for morning use or warm it up in the evening. The opposite is true for west-facing rooms.
    Design first, colour second
    Rather than falling in love with a paint colour first, choose large decor pieces, like a couch or kitchen cabinets, before you choose a paint colour. Then pick a hue that complements your design rather than designing around your paint colour.
    Test it out
    Once you’ve narrowed down your options, buy small test cans of Premier Paint and paint test sections on your wall to find your favourite before you commit to your whole project. See how the colours look at different times of day.
