Samples are a wonderful way to help create your perfect room!
You can fashion your colour palette and texture combinations before you purchase anything. It helps to ensure your vision comes to life correctly and could prevent wasting money on wrong colour shades or surface coverings that don’t suit the rest of your room.
It is a fun way to get the best out of your decor choices. You may find a unique look that you didn’t have in mind before which turns out to be fabulous!
Many retailers, such as John Lewis, offer a free fabric and wallpaper sample service online. Paint brands such as Dulux offer free sample cards of every colour option in DIY stores like B&Q.
Gather as many as you can and start experimenting with different looks until you reach the one you are happy with.
I also strongly recommend buying sample pots of any paint colours before you buy the real thing. The colour may look right on the pot but you won’t know for sure until you see it on your wall within the room’s natural light. Paint brands offer such wide variation so collect several colour cards first. Then buy sample pots of the shades you like and test them out to find the best one for you.
Hope this helps!
