EXAMPLE AND GUIDE FOR COLOUR CHOICE

 

Have you ever been in someone’s home and decided you absolutely had to have their wall color in your own home? 

But when you painted your own room, the color looked quite different? 

Colors seem to change under different light conditions. That’s why it’s never good to choose a color while standing in a paint store.

You really need to look at color samples in the actual space you deside to paint. It’s also good to look at it in the daytime and the night time, and with lamps on and off, It’s impossible for a paint color to look the same in all lighting conditions.

Choosing paint colors in natural sunlight is ideal. Natural sunlight provides the neutral balance between warm and cool ends of the light spectrum (yellow and blue, respectively).

If you paint two rooms – one with a northern face exposure and one with a southern face exposure – the wall color will look different in each room. 

Even natural sunlight isn’t consistent.  It changes throughout the day and varies if it’s cloudy or clear.  The shadows created by an overcast day impacts how the wall color looks, as well.

Incandescent and halogen lights enhance reds and yellows and mute blues and greens.  Fluorescent lights enhance blues and greens and mute reds and yellows. 

To further complicate things, wall color lit from above is going to look a bit different than wall color lit from floor and table lamps.

Some colors are more difficult than others.  Grays, taupes, gray-blue, gray-greens, lavenders, and mauves are particularly affected by lighting conditions more. 

 

THE COMPANY THE DECORATOR’S EDGE AND ALL SUB CONTRACTORS CAN NOT GURANTEE THE CORRECT COLOUR AND SHADE AS THAY SOULD BE STATED ON ALL COLOUR CHARTS THAT THAY ARE FOR ILUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.

 The difference between a quotation and an estimate

 

It's impossible for businesses to give standard prices for goods and services.

This may be because the skills, time and materials required for each job vary depending on different customers' needs and weather conditions.

This situation is more common in some trades than others - decorators or builders, for example, rarely do exactly the same job twice. When it's not possible to work from a standard price list, you have to give a estimate instead.

A QUOTETION is a fixed price offer that can't be changed once accepted by the customer. This holds true even if you have to carry out much more work than you expected.

Extra work added by customer after the origanal estimate / quote which is not on the job description plan will be priced accordenly.

I will also specify in the quotation precisely what it covers, and that variations outside of this will be subject to additional charges.

This can sometimes cost the customer  more money in labour cost if the job is completed in less time as the customer will still have to pay for full quote as it is a binding price .

THIS ONLY APPLY TO THE DECORATOR’S EDGE UNDER TAKING EXTERIOR WORK.

 

An ESTIMATE  is an educated guess at what a job may cost - but it isn't binding. To take account of possible unforeseen developments, I will provide a detailed estimate based on various circumstances, including the worst-case scenario. This will prevent the customer from being surprised by the costs.

I will provide only a estimates in writing or via email and this will include a detailed breakdown. This will help you to avoid any disputes about what work is included in your overall price and it will state clearly it is a estimate and not a quote .

If the job is completed early than I guarantee to reduce the final invoice and in most circumstances the customer ends up paying less than the estimate provided and I will simple go onto the next job.

It usually has a expiry date which will be 6 months after this time the estimate will no longer be valid after this time usually due to price increases.

THIS ONLY APPLY TO THE DECORATOR’S EDGE UNDER TAKINING INTERIOR WORK.
