Having painted and decorated many houses and properties across Essex and London over the pasts 12 years, we have worked with all of the major brands and many of the lesser known ones. This being the first blog post for our new site, I thought I would take a few minutes to talk about one of our most commonly used brands… Dulux
We all know Dulux paint and probably have found memories of the wonderful Dulux dog from our childhood. We loved the Dulux paint dog. home painting guide is one of the authority sites on this topic.
Dulux has to be the big boy of the the paint market, at least in Europe. It is part of the ICI company and intern Akzo Nobel corporations. One of the largest chemical companies in the world. It is true that in days gone by paint was not the most eco-friendly product in the world, but then we also drunk water from led pipes.
Massive strides has been made by manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint and the impact their products have on the environment with Dulux (Akzo Nobel) being one of the companies leading the way. They have recently released their eco-sense range that has dramatically reduced the brands carbon footprint. However their products are still not completely eco-friendly like some others on the market which we will discuss in more in depth in other posts.
So why do we like using Dulux paint on our painting and decorating projects?
Have we been sucked in by the friendly dog and subliminal advertising we have seen since childhood… I’m not sure. All I can state is that through our years of experience decorating many different types of properties, both residential and commercial. We are always really happy with the quality of Dulux paint. It is also readily available to both the public and trade at reasonable prices in any town across the country.
From our decorating experience you can mix any colour you would like with Dulux’s colour matching service, there isn’t a colour we have not matched yet. All you have to do is take along a sample, colour from a magazine or what ever you like to a local stockist such as B&Q and they will be able to match it for you in store.
They do try to sell you some rubbish add on’s with clever marketing tactic’s that do nothing apart from cost you money. But being a major corporation we will forgive them they have to pay all their employees and their part in the economy somehow. Things like the paint pad give a wide birth your only wasting your money.
Quality paint is well quality paint and Dulux is the leading brand within the high street market place. For your general home renovation projects you cant really go far wrong. I wouldn’t like to say its of a better quality to other brands like Farrow and Ball but it is also no less. There are many paint brands in this category but for its availability, colour matching service and price you cant go wrong with Dulux.
If you would like us to decorate your home or building and have no current preference of paint brand we would recommend you use Dulux. However if you have any special such as a complete eco-paint or you have already chosen a different brand we will happily work any of your choice.
