Tips to Updating Your Interior Exclusively With Paint

Posted on

For homeowners looking to refresh the appearance of their home, a fresh coat of paint on the interior and exterior walls is their go-to solution. However, merely applying a coat of paint will not enhance the aesthetics of your residence. If you would like to make your interior spaces pop, you need to have some creativity. Here are some tips that can come in handy for updating the interior of your home exclusively with paint.

Tip 1: Paint your ceilings a bold colour

More often than not, the ceilings of a home are typically overlooked, as they are not the focal point of the room. However, if you would like the entire room to appear unique, then you need to consider the ceiling as a fifth wall in the living space. Rather than sticking to neutral colour palettes for your ceiling, choose a bold colour that would make your ceiling stand out and will add some character to the space.

Tip 2: Paint stripes on your walls

When it comes to wall decorating, some people will consider wallpaper as their only alternative. The reality is that paint provides you with an economical solution to create patterns and designs on your walls too! A simple way of doing this would be to paint stripes on your walls, which is especially suitable for rooms that already have a neutral colour on their walls such as white. Your choice of colour can then match your colour accents to tie in the overall interior design of the space. One thing to note is to avoid painting stripes on all your walls. Instead, select a focal wall that will stand out without overwhelming the room with stripes.

Tip 3: Paint a gallery wall

Gallery walls refer to specific walls where you will concentrate on mounting pictures. Not only do they add visual interest to your space, but they also all add sentimental value to the room. Nevertheless, some homeowners may not be able to afford to splurge on many pictures frames to create this gallery wall. A cheaper option would be to use paint instead. You can hire specialised professional painters who will paint the designs of picture frames on your chosen wall. You then have the choice of mounting canvas pictures directly inside the painted frame or laminate regular photographs and stick them on the wall. Furthermore, ensure that the frames are painted in different shapes and sizes to make it the wall appear more interesting.
