Re: Taubmans Light Grey Wall Colours?2
Nov 19, 2020 2:25 am
My builder uses Wattyl paint however I picked Dulux colours for my render and walls. Have you looked outside the Taubmans range for colours?
I selected Vanilla Quake (full) for render, (half) for internal walls. It is a light grey, with a hint of lavender to it.
Its important to find the colour RGB so you can see what colour it is going to 'throw' more against white etc. RGB obviously stands for Red Green Blue and the higher the number the more of that colour makes up the overall colour. Most paint websites will have that referenced or you can google the colour and it should be available for you. Even under some lights you might not see it and the RGB helps with that.
Only advise I can give you is to get swatches from the ranges and put it against all of your selections, in different lights but similar lighting to your end room if its a new build (day, night, angled down, laid flat) this will give you an idea what it will look like in your space and if it will compliment or clash with your choices.
Other great greys are: Lexicon, Dieskau and Tranquil Retreat (Dulux). Keep in mind all colours can be made up in Full, Half and Quarter strength. Take a look at these Dulux popular greys here: Dulux Popular Greys
In the end painting can be easily fixed (not cheap but easier than replacing tiles/flooring etc) - Good luck with your choices, hope I have been of help.

Thanks! Great timing as I just put my request in for the door! We’re having a 120cm pivot but that door is exactly what I’m after.
