Your client may argue that all greys are the same but painters, decorators and Dulux Trade know they are not. Most greys have a hint of colour in them which gives them distinct personalities - this helps you advise the best grey to use for any project. True grey is a simple mix of black and white and no other colour added.
At Dulux Trade we have a collection of true greys shades which will look great in any room. Dulux Trade's 4 most popular true greys are Chic Shadow 00NN 31/000, Polished Pebble 00NN 72/000, Urban Obsession 00NN 25/000 and Night Jewels 3 00NN 20/000.
Grey is a beautiful colour on its own but you can talk to your client about how it works so well with every other colour because it's the ultimate neutral. This is brilliant if your client likes grey - but don't want to have it on every wall.
