Sometimes, all you need is a fresh coat of paint to update and revitalize the interior of your home. Welcome the new year with five invigorating interior paint design and style ideas from Handyman Connection® of Butler Warren.
1. Hassle-Free Stencils
Stencils are a unique, convenient way to decorate your humdrum walls. There is no shortage of stencil templates on the market, and you’ll surely enjoy picking out a pattern just as much as you’ll enjoy painting it. You can experiment with either just one or multiple colors at a time. Perhaps the best part is that you can use a different pattern for each room in your home, provided that the patterns complement each other.
2. Finishing Strong
Playing around with various interior paint finishes helps you achieve a stunning design without relying too much on the paint color. The textures offered by paint finishes add visual interest to any room. The most common interior paint finishes include flat finish which is the least glossy type, eggshell finish typically used as a decorative finish and satin finish which is the most commonly used. Other popular finishes are semi-gloss and high-gloss.
3. Show-Stopping Metallics
While a metallic hue is probably the last thing you’d consider for an interior paint, it’s precisely the novelty that makes it such a great idea. You can use metallic paint for an accent wall, or for an entire room. Painting your interior with a metallic hue takes a level of expertise and skill, so it’s best to hire a professional to get the job done right.
4. Rag and Roll
Rag rolling is a rising trend when it comes to interior painting techniques. The process involves rolling a rag over an already painted wall to add texture, depth and character. The results are visually stunning walls with intricate patterns.
5. Winning Streak
Strié, which is French for streaking, is an utterly stylish painting technique that makes walls and surfaces resemble the texture of a linen material. Add a pop of charm and color to your rustic home by choosing soothing blues or vibrant yellows.
