6 Creative Ideas For Painting Your Living Room

>> Dec 5, 2017

Your living room is one of the most frequently used spaces in your home and should be as unique as you are. This is the space where you host friends and family, and whether you prefer a calm, serene, atmosphere or a trendy and bold vibe, it's a space where you can express your personality.

Nothing can spruce a room up like a fresh coat of paint, whether to hide some artwork made by your kids, make it feel cosier, or if you are just looking for a way to freshen up the look of your living space. 

Not only is paint a versatile tool but it is also an affordable way to enhance your design. Below are some creative interior painting ideas to inspire the transformation of your living room.

Add an Accent Wall
Instantly inject colour and create a focal point by painting one wall of your living room in a bold shade, that would otherwise overwhelm the space if used on all four walls. The idea of an accent wall is to highlight a feature such as a collection of artwork. But don't limit yourself to one colour, you can also do a Mural of some sort or opt for stripes and other patterns to tie together all the tones in your decorating palette.

Create Texture
Adding texture to walls can instantly make your space feel more luxurious especially if you stick to neutral shades with a subtle degree of contrast between tones. Techniques such as marbling, rag rolling and stippling can create a textured look with more than one colour, but to master, these methods can take some time. However, if you are heart set on doing it yourself, you can buy specific brushes and rollers to achieve a similar look.

Go Dark to Light with the Ombre Technique
Ombre is quite high up on the "trendy list" of interior painting at the moment, and it's easy to see why since ombre painted walls offer significant flexibility when it comes to design. With the ombre painting technique, you can make it look like there are no boundaries between the walls and the ceiling by painting the bottom part of the wall a different colour and letting it gradually become white. By matching the tone of the bottom half of your wall to the decor, there will be unity throughout the room.

Make it Interesting with Shapes, Patterns or Typography
Another design trend high up on the "list" is to use Typography. By displaying a personalised message, you can make a bold, one-of-a-kind statement. It can either be inspirational or something smart and fun to make your guests feel at home.

Chevron stripes can also be used to make a space exciting and fun, and it is quite easy to achieve. To pull this look together, think of ways you can coordinate the pattern with the rest of the decor and make sure you use the right colour in the right spot. To create an even more fashionable look, why not combine techniques such as chevron or stripes and ombre. Use the darkest shade for the bottom line and gradually add white to make each strip lighter.

Create Contrast by Painting the Ceiling
We often overlook the ceiling, but by painting it a different colour, you can create an appealing contrast with your walls. If your ceilings are low, you can make them appear higher by painting them a cool shade of blue. This will trick the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is. You can also brighten up a white room by painting the ceiling in a bold colour.

Paint the Floor
By painting your floor, you can open up various design possibilities especially the case when it comes to concrete flooring. By painting a bold, solid colour or a bright white, you can achieve modern simplicity. If you're looking for the traditional checkerboard tile look, it's easy to imitate with two contrasting paint colours. For a more natural look, concrete can also be stained. Complete the look with a shiny coat of epoxy that reflects ample light into your space.

If you keep an open mind, creative interior painting ideas can come from the most unexpected places. Don't be scared to let your living room match your personality. You can either opt to do these interior painting jobs yourself or hire a professional. Whatever you decide to do, fill your home with colour and let it come alive!
