This competition has now ended.
A little while ago I posted about the difficulties of updating bathroom interiors in a family home, so when Crown Paint asked me to review some of their paint, I jumped at the chance to add a new lease of life to our Bathroom by trying out their Kitchen and Bathroom Paint range. This is one of those posts where you get to nosey around someone else’s house! I love them, so I’m sure you do too.
Our tiny bathroom in our Victorian semi was revamped about 5 years ago and the paintwork is looking a little tired now, but the tiling and bathroom furniture is fine. Plus I’m a little fed up with the colour and ready for a change. I’m ok with using a bit of colour. Colour is making a comeback too after many years of painting our walls white, off white, almost white and nearly white! Interior designers and home magazines are telling us that we need to embrace colour and experiment with vibrant shades once again. That’s fine, I can do that. My main problem though, is what colour to choose. I do find it hard to make a decision when I’m spoilt for choice. Generally I like lots of different looks and so spend ages agonising over what would work best.
The Crown Paint website was a great help I have to say (and I’m not just saying that because I’m reviewing their paint!). I’ve used it before to help me visualise how the colour will look on the wall, and what colours work best together. Choose your colours or your scheme and see it on the walls of the room of your choice. You can even switch out the lights and see how the colour changes. Excellent! If you’re not feeling so brave about using a bit of colour on your walls this is definitely something you need to try out.
Anyway, I finally went for Cool Aqua and here it is after the first coat on the bathroom walls.
I’ve never used specific Bathroom paint before and I was genuinely impressed by the lack of spatter and the ease with which it covered the walls. Very little odour too, which can often drive the children mad. Fantastic. It’s a stronger colour that we had before but it works well with the blind and I’m really pleased with the finished result. Fresh, bright and clean. What do you think?
I have one 2.5 Litre tin of ANY Crown Paint to give away to the Winner. Why not revamp a room in your house or add a feature wall to your existing decor? Spring is well on the way and the brighter light and sunshine tends to show up tired paintwork. At this time of year we all like to freshen up our homes, and with this competition prize you could give one room a great new Spring look.
It’s really simple to enter. All you need to do is add a comment to this post and tell me which room in your home you would like to update and which colour you would use. If you need to, use the Crown Colour Schemes website to give you some inspiration!
