Interior painting is not only important but it is fun. I remember the first time I got to pick the colors for my bedroom. I got to display my creativity and have the satisfaction of knowing that the interior painting design and work was mine.
3 Interior Painting Ideas:
- Use stencils to add a little elegance or a little zing. Some rooms may benefit from a picture rather than just solid color. For instance, maybe your child’s room would look more fun with some farm animals or a jungle painted on the wall. Maybe your kitchen would look brighter with pictures of fruit on the wall to make your walls look like an orchard that needs picked. With stencils you can create a whole new world right on the room’s wall. Stencils can be bought almost anywhere that sells interior painting supplies or school and art supplies.
- Stripes are a lot of fun in the right room of the house. Be sure and use smaller width stripes for small rooms and bigger stripes for big rooms. Paint a solid color on the wall first. Use a measuring tape to decide how far apart you want your stripes. Use a chalk line or laser level to make sure that the lines are straight. Use painters tape to guide you where to paint. If you alternate matte finish with gloss finish paint it will add some dimension to your stripped walls.
- Some rooms might look pretty awesome with geometric shape patterns on the wall. First be sure and draw out a design on paper. Graphing paper or ruled paper is best. I like to use colored pencils to fill in what colors I want on the wall. Use a pencil to draw the design on the wall. Use a chalk line to make sure your design is straight and even. Masking tape or painters tape is great for laying out the designs. Then just fill in the spaces with paint.
Paint is such a versatile thing and your walls are a great space to turn that versatility into creativity. If your walls need painted there is no reason not to have a little fun. If your décor needs updated, update it with a little fresh paint. Even subtle and elegant tones can be fun and display your personality. Never be afraid to be a little playful while interior painting.
