Advantages: onscreen painting feature, order colour swatches, request booklets and colour charts
Disadvantages: boring homepage
Have you ever started decorating and wished you hadn't. For example the colour description on the tin is so far from the truth that it is actualy scary.Well I had that experiance not so long ago whilst decorating my bedroom I picked a lovely shade of lilac that turned out to be much darker than expected.
I have just started an interior design course so I was browsing the various paint companies when I stumbled across Dulux even though I nearly left the site because at first it seems very dull and stuffy, I decieded to delve a bit deeper and I am so glad that I did.
There are many features and tips pages which I didn't enter as I was on a specific search for help on choosing colours that match and complement each other,but from what I did see this site is well worth visiting.
Firstly I requested books and leaflets on the colour range which I recieved after just two days.Not bad considering the state of the postal service recently.
Secondly I entered the amazing world of mousepainter. From here you are able to select specific rooms and choose colours from the Dulux range to decorate giving a realistic view of how the colours will work for you once you are happy with the selections you can then print out the plan which comes with an easy to read chart detailing the colours you have chosen.From here you can also select swatches of your chosen colours making it easy to deciede if you will be making the right decision before purchasing the product.
All in all a great site once you overcome the boredem factor of the homepage.
