The Bristol chain of paint specialist stores is dedicated to providing inspiration and expertise to both retail DIY customers and trade painters. Bristol has everything you need to paint and decorate your home, from inspiration through to advice and the right products with four stores in the Hunter – Kotara, Warners Bay, Taylors Beach, East Maitland and a fifth store soon to open at Rutherford.
Bristol's friendly staff are there to offer advice on surface preparation, the right product to use in the right place, and generally, lend a hand. Their comprehensive range includes paint for any surface, speciality finishes, preparatory products, wallpaper, borders and a full range of brushes, rollers and other accessories to finish the job.
Bristol's True Colour Matching System can even help you create your own unique colour. It will match a flat solid colour sample (no less than the size of a 20 cent coin), and tint that colour into the product of your choice. This system is great for matching, fabric, tiles and other features.
You can also find the perfect colour scheme with the Bristol scheme cards and view the inspiration booklet to see schemes in action. The interior, exterior and heritage colour cards demonstrate a range of popular colours or for some one-on-one assistance why not utilise the free 30-minute In-Store Colour Consultancy at the Kotara Store.
Their qualified professionals will guide you through the colour selection process to help you select colours that enhance your lifestyle and complement your space.
They’ll let you know what you need to bring along; for example, house plans, photos, carpet or tile samples, and inspirational images.
The colour expert will ask about what you are trying to achieve with your project, whether it’s inside, outside or just one room, taking into consideration elements such as furniture, accessories, lighting and streetscape. The consultant will also recommend the best paint and finish. Bookings are essential – visit www.booking.bristol.com.au/book-an-appointment.
