Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why do I need your help?

Nobody should worry about wrong colour choices and have to live with them. Most people have an idea of what they like, or at the very least, what they don’t like. However, the obstacle of agreeing with all members of the household or work colleagues is common. Indecision definitely holds a project back.

What can I expect at the on-site consultation?

We will meet you on-site, discuss your needs, examining both the property style and immediate surroundings. We listen to your individual needs and objectives in order to better understand your preferences.Most often, advice is provided on-site and decisions made mutually.

We carry a large range of colour samples that you may require for painting and decorating and are able to source additional colour samples as needed.
