Painting Techniques to Consider for Your House

Have you ever walked into a house and thought, how did they do that? Sometimes, it may just come down to the technique. 

When it comes down to it, the painting technique is learned through years of experience. Craftsmen that work with professional painting services are often able to add texture and depth to any ordinary wall. Here are some of the most popular professional painting techniques.

3 Professional Painting Techniques

How can you make a room pop? What techniques are best used to bring out the color? Here are some options to consider.

Color Washing

Color washing is a technique used that layers a lighter color over a darker base color. The lighter color will be mixed with glaze and the base color will be underneath it. Craftsmen can mix colors with brushes, sponges, or even cloth.


Do you like the look of a rustic, historic home? Crackle can add a rougher texture to your wall. This can make the top coat of paint crack with the addition of a special glaze. This is a great way to add a fresh look without taking away historic charm. 


This technique uses both cloth and glazes to give the appearance of fabric texture on the wall. When is this used? This technique is perfect for bedrooms and blending two colors together for a unique shade. 

What Technique Should I Use?

What look are you crying to create and feel? If you’re remodeling a whole room, it’s easy to experiment with different styles and create something new and that you’ve never done before. If you’re just adding a fresh coat of paint, it might take some time to make the decision.
