Painting walls is a quick and easy way to revamp your home and add value to your asset. Not only will it freshen up your look but it’s a great way to reflect your personality in your décor. From accent walls, to clever paint techniques, stripes and ceilings in a contrasting colour or changing up old furniture; paint will add a new dimension to your décor. Whether you opt for a crisp white look with accents in your accessories or warmer hues - the good news is painting doesn’t have to be an exercise that breaks the bank.
There are some obvious pointers that will avoid incurring unnecessary costs, including selecting the right paint finish for the job, preparing surfaces properly before starting, and purchasing the right volumes of paint by taking accurate room measurements and using industry formulas to calculate your needs. Selecting the right paint brand – a reliable home grown partner with heritage – is equally important.
Recognising the mounting pressure on the consumer wallet which is already stretched; a phenomenon not expected to change in the near future, Prominent Paints has introduced a new range of quality, affordable paint targeted at the budget conscious consumer. The range includes the “essentials” of four key products that will cover 90% of the market’s needs for both interior and exterior painting, including an Acrylic PVA, Basic Matt, a Gloss Enamel and a Plaster Primer.
The Basic Matt range is currently available in neutrals including cream, white, and coffee, while the gloss enamel comes standard in white, black, cream and golden brown. The primer and the PVA are only available in white although the PVA can be tinted to pastel colours. The range is suitable for interior and exterior application and with the choice of products you can paint just about any surface that needs a make-over. With good coverage and easy application – the range is a definite crowd pleaser and all the Access products are produced with no lead.
Look out for the easily identifiable packaging design. Candid product names leave nothing to interpretation and distinctive colour coding has been applied to each product in the range. Pack sizes include a 5L and 20L tin across all the ranges, bar the enamel which comes standard in a 1L and 5L tin.
The Access range is being stocked at most leading paint stockists nationwide, as well as from the Prominent Paints Paint Centres and franchise stores. The suggested retail price for the most economical paint is R15.95/L with the highest price point in the range for the gloss enamel at R62.60/L.
Winter is a great time to get on top of your DIY projects so start measuring up your space so you can access a new look for your home.
