Read our 10 Reasons to Paint Your Way with Good Quality Paint and a Trend Forward Colour Palette


1. Your Home is Your Biggest Asset – Preserve & Protect it.

A good quality paint is durable and will last longer than less expensive brands on the market today. They will protect and preserve your biggest asset for years!


2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle & Repaint.

Instead of throwing out that old chest of drawers or dresser why not give it a brand new look with a coat of paint and a couple of exciting colours?


3. Renovate, don't relocate.

If you have decided not to move this year (or if the economy has decided this for you!) you can completely transform the house you are in with some creative colour schemes from an extensive line of fashionable colours.


4. Save Money!

You can reduce your painting costs by doing the painting yourself!


5. Save More Money – a new kitchen, for just a few dollars

If you were planning a new kitchen this year and have cancelled your plans due to budgetary constraints, you can still completely transform your old kitchen and units with a good quality paint and a choice of thousands of colours!


6. Save even more money!

A good quality paint will last 5 or 6 years or longer while some cheaper brands last for only 2 or 3 years. Painting with Harris saves you money!


7. Painting is relaxing & Rewarding!

Take a night off the News, Prime Time, recession and depression, and re-discover the pleasure of painting! Put the kids to bed, set up your paint job, pop the cork in a bottle of your favourite wine, put on your favourite music and watch your masterpiece take shape.


8. Conserve Resources & Protect the Environment!

Paint conserves natural resources and protects the environment. Firstly you are not throwing out your old things. Secondly, a first rate paint is more durable than bargain brands and you paint less often so you consume less resources. Many brands have removed the harmful solvents and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from paint so they are kinder to the environment – and to your health!


9. Cheer Yourself Up!

Colour affects your mood! Dull drab colour schemes often result in a dull drab mood (and maybe reflect the national mood of doom and gloom these days!). Bright colourful colours and colour schemes reflect optimism, hope and joy and affect peoples’ moods (watch the reaction next time you give or receive a bunch of flowers).


10. Your Life is your Canvas, Throw lots of Colour at it!
