Need some professional advice on colour?

At Porter's Paints we pride ourselves on the specialist advice our staff offer customers every day in our showrooms on colour and product selection.

With the growing concerns around COVID-19, our greatest priority is the health and safety of our team members and you, our customers. In an effort to limit personal contact we are offering our full colour consultancies, both in-store and on-site, by appointment only. Expert colour advice will always be part of our service, but will be kept brief while observing precautionary ‘social distancing’.  

Porter's in-store colour consultations are all part of our commitment to service, and are completely free of charge. Forget the guesswork of mass produced printed swatches and generic colour scheme brochures when we make it easy, and tailored for you, with our personal service and hand painted samples.

We can also offer this advice to you in your own home through Porter's Paints on-site consultation service.

Our on-site colour consultation team is made up of fully qualified colourists who have extensive experience in developing interior and exterior colour schemes and have an in-depth knowledge of Porter's Paints colours and products. Colour consultancies are available in the Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne metro areas.

Email us to arrange an appointment for one of our colourists to visit your home, where together, you can develop your ideas into a colour scheme tailored for your space.
