Thinking about freshening up a room in your home with a new coat of paint? Choosing a nice color is the first step. However, just painting all of your walls in your chosen color is a run-of-the-mill way of decorating. If you want to do something that’s unique and eye-catching, try one of these painting methods.
Paint a Crown Moulding
A crown moulding offers that sophisticated finished look that many homeowners strive for. However, having a crown moulding cut and installed can be a bit pricey. A great way to get the look of a crown moulding is to just paint one! Simply paint a thick white line on the wall where the wall meets the ceiling. You’ll get the same effect as a crown moulding for less money.
Paint a Single Wall
We’ve talked before about accent walls. An accent wall is a unique and easy way to boost your interior design. Choose a neutral color for the majority of walls in a room. Then, choose an accent color for a single wall. You can even paint your ceiling in your accent color! Adorn the room with just a few hand-chosen items in your accent color to make the theme flow throughout the room.
Highlight a Shelf
Something you probably won’t see in your neighbor’s home: a precise, hand-painted design on the wall behind a shelf. Using measuring tape, painter’s tape, and a pencil, you can precisely design a geometrical pattern (think triangles, diamonds, etc.) and paint it in with your chosen accent color. Remove the painter’s tape, allow the paint to dry completely, then install your shelving. Now you have a unique place to show off your tchotchkes that’s also highlighted by a unique pattern you painted yourself!
Frame a Door
Just as your can paint a design behind your shelves, you can also paint a design around a doorway for a flair of unique interior design. Choose a color that complements the existing color of your walls and decor. You can use painter’s tape to create a precise geometric design or simply freehand a flowing shape around your doorway.
