Prominent Ultra Matt – a good all rounder paint!

Prominent Paints experts recommend that approximately 60% of your room should be the main colour on the walls, approximately 30% of your room should be a feature wall colour in a slightly stronger shade and approximately 10% should be an accent colour such as trim, or even an inspiring object like a cushion or sofa.

When it is time to decorate a newly build house or even to just paint a previously painted wall surface, we tend to only focus on the colour choices. Although the colour is very important, we should not forget that the surface preparation and the choice of paint to be used is also a vital aspect to always remember. Insure that the surface to be painted is clean, dry and sound. These are the three main principles of the state of the substrate prior to painting.

Should you require a guidance on the specific surface preparation, please use the guidelines as stated on Prominent Ultra Matt Technical Data Sheet.

For a very good interior paint option, we would suggest to use Prominent Ultra Matt. This product has a low odour, is highly washable, mark and scratch resistant and much more. It is suitable for high traffic areas and even for bathrooms and any interior walls, ceilings or furniture that require a matt finish.

FOR AN EYE-PLEASING PALETTE – APPLY THE 60-30-10 PRINCIPLE WHEN CHOOSING PAINT COLOUR

When it comes to colours that are on-trend and in-vogue in 2021 – grounded, serene and peaceful tones are the cornerstone of making over and upstyling rooms with paint. With consumers craving simple comforts and a slowed-down lifestyle, the new neutrals are earthy and organic.  The colour trio that best represents this is the PPG Be Well palette, which celebrates beauty and emulates the optimism and soothing nostalgia felt in nature, and includes Transcend (PPG1079-4), Big Cypress (PPG1062-5) and Misty Aqua (PPG1147-3).  These comfort colours are similar to comfort foods – both offering a certain sense of familiarity and normalcy when facing the unknown. With mindfulness front and center, this nurturing palette allows consumers to make space for comfort, support, relief and joy.

As a subsidiary of PPG, the world’s leading paint manufacturer, Prominent Paints has access to the latest colour research and according to the experts, combining the right mix of colours is made easy when using the 60-30-10 principle. Approximately 60% of your room should be the main colour on the walls, approximately 30% of your room should be a feature wall colour in a slightly stronger shade and approximately 10% should be an accent colour such as trim, or even an inspiring object like a cushion or sofa.
