Considerations when choosing a Zoffany paint colour

The Zoffany paint collection has the ability to completely alter the look and feel of your home. It can add depth, dimension, character and interest to create your own, signature look. However, choosing a paint colour isn’t always as easy as it may seem. With such a wide selection of colours available and variable factors impacting the end result, it can be difficult to know whether a colour is right for your chosen space and requirements. So here’s a few things to keep in mind when selecting your paint colour.

Firstly, it’s important to note that lighting can significantly influence the way a paint colour looks in your home. Natural light, artificial light, warm light and cool light all impact the colour differently. The amount of light exposure the colour will receive is also worth considering. Some areas of your room may be prone to more shading than others. This will likely make the colour seem darker in places, so it’s important to account for this when making your decision.

Secondly, different aspects including architectural features, room size and ceiling height can influence how a colour works in your space. Darker tones may lend themselves to more spacious settings with higher ceilings, while lighter shades work well in smaller areas. Furthermore, furniture colour and positioning can also affect the paint. Your chosen furnishings should complement your colour for a cohesive finish, without clashing with or detracting from it.

Finally, paint finish. This factor significantly affects the overall outcome of your chosen paint colour. Some finishes offer a chalky matt appearance, while others provide varying levels of sheen to suit different materials and uses. It really comes down to the overall look you’re trying to create, so it’s important to consider finish when making your selection.

The Home Of Interiors Recommendations

As outlined above, a range of factors heavily influence the way a colour works in a space. That’s why we strongly recommend purchasing a sample pot before committing to a paint colour. For the Zoffany paint collection, you can opt for a 125ml sample pot in Elite Emulsion as standard. This is available in any Zoffany colour of your choice to help make your decision just that little bit easier.

We also recommend applying 2 coats of the sample to a 30cm x 30cm piece of lining paper / foam board. Once dry, you can then position it in different areas of your room to see how lighting and different aspects of the space affect the colour throughout the day. This way, you will get a feel for if the colour is right for you and your environment, giving you that extra piece of mind before purchase. Please note, we do not recommend applying any samples directly to your walls. This will only create more prep work when it comes to decorating, particularly if a sample is quite dark and needs to be covered.

If you’re looking for more inspiration and ideas on how to style your preferred paint colour, we also provide recommended complementary colours for many of the Zoffany paints to help create the ultimate look. Please see our suggested colour schemes on the individual paint pages on our website.

Many of the Zoffany paints also fit seamlessly with some of 2021’s most prominent interior colour trends. The colour Green is a great example. Reminiscent of our natural surroundings, this versatile colour evokes feelings of calm and serenity. If you’re looking for a subtle green that is both soothing and comforting, Zoffany’s Ice Floes is a perfect choice. Paired with Quarter Ice Floes, Half Ice Floes and Double Ice Floes, this contemporary colour can bring an air of sophistication to your space. Whilst these shades are part of the same colour scale, the differing undertones can help to add interest through layering and depth of pigment. This will provide a simple, yet effective finish that remans cohesive throughout your space. Alternatively, if you’d prefer something a little more natural, Green Stone and Fennel would work beautifully.

Furthermore, Zoffany offers a magnificent palette of greys which are both stylish and right on trend. Available in a plethora of shades, this colour offers the flexibility to suit any room in your home. Zoffany’s Quartz Grey scale offers cooler tones with a contemporary feel. Combining the lighter shades with darker hues will create a truly harmonising finish throughout your chosen room. For example, you may choose to paint your room in Quarter Quartz Grey or Half Quartz Grey, but incorporate a feature wall or fireplace in Quartz Grey or Double Quartz Grey for a stunning impact. If you’re looking for a warmer grey with more earthy undertones, the Empire Grey scale would also make a great choice.
