Sports Facilities

Sporting lessons

Sporting facilities in an educational environment have their own set of rules. With long experience in the field, the Dulux Trade team has the coaching expertise to make sure your project is a winner.


Using cool, unobtrusive tones is one key tip. Large expanses of vivid colour can be too overwhelming in such a hectic environment, so if a school or college colour is especially bright, it may be wise to consider a lighter tint of it. Using split colours for the upper and lower sections of the walls helps with visibility.

Products and finishes

The right hardwearing anti-slip flooring is crucial for indoor sports facilities, so this may influence the choice of wall and ceiling colours. And because gym walls tend to be so large and expensive to redecorate, choosing products that extend maintenance cycles as far as possible - even anti-graffiti finish - can mean major cost savings.
