With the refreshing months of summer comes the urge to change up your living space to something different or more eye catching. Painting is the perfect way to freshen up a room without spending too much time or money. There are several unique techniques that local Phoenix painters use to make a room look stylish and POP!
Painting Partially and Patterns
Not only does this technique conserve the amount of paint you have to use, but it also is a simple way to add artistic flair to any room. If you’re looking to make your living room or bedroom stand out, painting up to half of the wall one color and leaving the top half white is a great way to bring out the colors of your furniture and decorations. If you’re looking for a more creative approach to spicing up a bathroom or child’s bedroom, using stencils for patterned walls illustrates the positive energy you want your room to have. As long as you map out where you want the patterns and don’t mind going over little mistakes, this is a perfect option for those not wanting to spend too much on their painting project.
Painting Accent Walls
Painting accent walls has become an unbelievably popular trend in both home projects and business ones. They’re wonderful for drawing the eye to specific areas or having light reflect off of a key color that you want represent your room without being overwhelming. Accent walls are also beneficial in a way that your whole house doesn’t have to be painted the same color. Varying shades or shades or more gray tones of those shades are best for highlighting your flooring, counter-tops, cabinets, or appliances. A general rule is to pick one wall in the room that’s slightly different from the others, or the one that receives the most light from a window or door.
Also known as “faux painting”, this style tricks the eye in an amazing way that will really make your walls pop! Concrete faux finishes give off soft, contemporary vibes, whereas grain faux finishes mimic the natural course look of wood grain and compliment bright colors. Another option is using lacquer paint that gives a shiny finish to rooms that require a smooth, elegant finish. Warm colors like espresso or garnet can really tie together a room with beautiful desks, vanities, cabinets, or elaborate baseboard moldings. Should you be struggling with how a normal paint job looks, consider adding texture to your walls to give them a stronger finish.
Painting A Home
While painting is an easy way to revitalize rooms in your house and change the way your interior matches your furniture and appliances, it’s difficult to plan out where to paint and what kind of design to paint that will compliment your home features. Plus, if you decide on painting something that requires precise outlines or patterns, there’s little room for mistakes which can be stressful and overwhelming.
