Be Artistic about Your House – Go Painting

There are a lot of ways for people to express themselves, and one of these ways is to add some colors to their home. Through colors you could bring new life to a room, and maybe this is all your house needs to become more welcoming and to feel like a real home.

Painting the stairs

You don’t need to have plain and simple stairs; instead opt for a two colored scheme. Make sure that the two colors are matching. The risers and treads should have different colors, and in the end finish the look with a funny message painted on the risers. This will make your family and guests smile.

Artistic about Your House

The furniture

Although the majority of people think only about the walls when they hear about painting, you should also consider the furniture. There is no better way to save money than to use old furniture. Before starting the work you have to sand the surface. Then apply layer of primer, and in the end, the acrylic paint. In case the furniture has been treated with wax you will need to use wax remover. In the end, add some block print for a chic finish.

Stenciling

For sure you would like to do something with your walls as well, and in this case you might want to add to it some kind of pattern. As an example you could be using the outline of a bird. Apply a bit of paint, but make sure that there is no excess paint on the brush. Then just tap gently on the wall.

Trick it

In case you are using the right colors, you can make magic regarding the apparent size of the room. In case you would like to make the ceiling look higher, you should use the same color on the walls as well. Naturally this works the other way around too.

Linking the rooms

Before you decide upon the colors that you are going to use for the interior walls, you should also consider the look of your home if the doors are open. This is why it is important to harmonize the colors. It might be a good idea to use the same color of different hues in the entire house.

As you can see, there is a lot you could do for your home with the help of the right color of paint and a bit of creativity.
