For Your Home Sample Quarts

Is it the right color?

A Colorizer Sampler Quart helps you know.

Choosing the right color is one of the most important and perhaps difficult tasks when decorating your home or office. There are a couple of fool-proof ways of previewing your color choices during the design stage of your painting project. Choosing colour with confidence by:

1. Purchasing a Rodda "Color Sampler" quart container of the colours you're considering and paint them on the wall surface in the room you will be painting.

2. For colors that will be used throughout rooms, paint the colour(s) individually on a piece of white bristol board or foam core board from the local art supply store (or even a leftover piece of drywall from a building centre). That way, you can 'move' the colour easily by simply moving the board that it's painted on.

3. One of the key points in deciding on the perfect colour for the setting is to take your time and view the color in all of the different lighting conditions in which the space will be used. If you're painting a kitchen, you'll be in that room at (almost) any time of the day/night. In a dining room, however, the color will be mostly enjoyed in the evening under low lighting conditions.

Each quart covers approximately 75 square feet, so you'll have enough coverage to really get a feel for the way the color will look before you buy the interior or exterior paint needed for your project.
