Whether you are looking to spruce up a room or make an entire house look like new, wall painting design is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to do it. If you’re feeling creative, there are plenty of wall painting techniques that you can use to give your walls a unique look. In this blog post, we will explore five wall painting techniques that you can do yourself to improve your interior design.
1. Sponge Painting – This technique involves applying paint with a damp sponge for a textured effect while creating a unique wall painting design. This can be used to create a stunning accent wall in any room of the house with enthralling colour shades. To get started, select two coordinating colours of paint, and dilute them with water until they reach the desired consistency (you should make sure that your paints are latex-based for best results). Dip your sponge into the paint mixture and then dab it onto the wall, repeating until you have achieved your desired effect.
2. Colour Washing – Colour washing is a great way to add depth and dimension to your walls without having to apply multiple layers of paint. All you need for this technique is two colours of paint (in this case lighter shades work best) plus some glaze or lightning medium. Start by brushing on one colour of paint and then when it is dry, brush on some glaze over top followed by the other colour of paint in small strokes or circles. The result will be subtle yet beautiful hues that blend seamlessly for creating a beautiful wall painting design!
3. Stenciling – Stenciling is one of the oldest forms of decorative painting and has been around since ancient times! To get started all you need is some stencils, acrylic craft paints with your choice of colour shades, and a small brush or roller. Begin by taping down your stencil onto the wall then using either a brush or roller apply even coats of paint within the stencil design until all areas are covered. Once finished carefully remove the stencil from the wall and enjoy your work!
4. Rag Rolling – Rag rolling is another fun technique that gives walls more texture as well as visual interest. The process involves making rags out of old fabric pieces such as t-shirts or towels then dipping them in contrasting colours before rolling them onto the wall in random patterns until all areas are covered. It’s important not to overwork any area as this technique should appear light and airy when finished!
5. Stripes – Stripes are one of our favourite ways to freshen up an interior design! To create stripes, start by measuring out equally spaced intervals across each wall then use painter’s tape to mark off where each stripe will go (it helps if you use two different colours so that each stripe looks distinct). Next, begin painting within those lines with alternating colours until everything looks neat and orderly. Finish up by removing all painter’s tape once everything has dried completely.
Whether you are looking for something subtle or something bold, these five easy-to-do painting techniques can help bring new life into any room in your home. With just some basic supplies like paint and rags, you can transform any ordinary space into something extraordinary without breaking the bank, so get creative today!
