Color is one of the most valuable weapons in your decor arsenal – so why aren’t you using it to your advantage? It can be a bit nerve-wracking to apply color to your walls. There’s a definite sense of permanence that accompanies a painting project. But it’s worth the risk! In fact, there are more ways than ever to use color and paint to make the spaces in your home look better than ever. Check out these unexpected paint ideas!
If you’re not sold on the idea of painting your walls then you can always start out with smaller painting projects to give you a similar boost in color to your rooms. Instead of painting every single wall you can start by only painting the doors or the shelves. Try a bright, happy color on the doors. You’ll need to make more of a statement when painting a smaller surface if you want to create a stylish effect. The shelves are also a great place to apply paint because it can complement any books or other decor that you place upon them. Use this to your advantage to enhance the effect of your wall color as well as the style of your decor items!
If you’re ready to throw caution to the wind and go all in with paint then there are several ideas that will blow you away. For instance, why stop at painting your walls? Try carrying the wall color all the way across the ceiling and even into the color of the furniture and accent pieces. This holistic color scheme is bold but beautiful. Paint is also an artistic element. Take this into account when designing your room so that you can introduce an artistic element to the paint on your walls. Have a pattern painted onto your wall as if it’s wallpaper or go even further by having a mural painted! The result is stunning. And don’t forget about the floor. A painted floor might sound outlandish, but if it’s done correctly it can become a true focal point in a room. It’s also completely unexpected and eye-catching!
