When it comes to painting your home’s interior, many people take a traditional, simple approach. Walls are neutral, calming colors. There are no designs, no unique touches, and no bright colors. While these painting habits are a safer bet when it comes to home value, reselling your house, and impressing the in-laws, paint is easily replaced.
Imagine if your child got to pick out the colors in your home. Each wall would be a different color—bright, non-matching, and probably a few ugly colors. But it would be creative. It would be unique. You would walk through your home and laugh at the everchanging walls. The ceilings would be painted like the sky, doors would look like openings to caves, and bathrooms would resemble the sea. Your home would be a work of art.
While this would be completely awesome and fun, it is probably not very realistic. No one would give their child such power, and no one would willingly paint their home every color imaginable. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun and be creative when it comes to selecting paint. With the help of JC Toland Painting, your home could be unique, beautiful, and show off your creative side.
Whether you are looking to simple add a dramatic accent wall or your want a full mural, JC Toland can help. Not the creative type? We can help fuel the creativity during your free estimate. But start planning the look you want for your home, these tips and ideas could be used as inspiration.
Add an Accent
Accent walls were in style a few years ago, and while some people may not like the idea of having one wall different from the rest, they are not going out of style any time soon. Accent walls are a great way to keep your room calm and neutral but add a splash of bold color.
Even accenting a beige room with a darker brown wall can add some variety to a room and make it more visually appealing. You don’t have to add bright blue walls or black walls to your room, even a small difference in color can make a difference.
If you are feeling daring, however, go bold. The bolder the better. Take your simple white room and splash a wall with electric blue paint. This will take your room to the next level, adding a bright color in a dull room. If you choose the right shade of blue, it could even look classy and dramatically beautiful. Or add the newly popular chalk paint to a wall. Chalk paint is a great way to add some never ending creativity to your room, just don’t forget to buy chalk! Your children’s dream will come true when you tell them they can write on the wall. You could add some art of your own, make lists, or even leave notes for family members on this chalkboard wall!
One solid color has been the traditional way to paint a home, but it is also boring and adds nothing special to your home. Adding designs to your walls could help give you the decorative touch you were hoping for.
Add fades to your walls, layers of paints, or create a chevron masterpiece. Your can give your walls an ombré touch or add some ragged edges with layered colors to create a unique mountainesque look.
At JC Toland, we have specialty artists who are skilled in decorative painting. They can add a touch of textures, design, and uniqueness to your walls. But what exactly can they do?
- Faux finishes
- Trompe l’oeil
- Venetian plaster
- Children’s rooms and themed rooms
Faux finishes and textured walls are an easy way to keep it simple while adding some style. These can get as simple or complex as you’d like and they are sure to give your walls a hint of excitement and make a statement. Venetian plaster has a similar effect, but it is made from plaster mixed with marble dust, and involves a process to make it look gorgeous and textured.
Want to get really fancy and creative with your interior walls? Let us create a masterpiece with a mural or trompe l’oeil. While murals are beautiful and can create the look of a full work of art on your wall, trompe l’oeil can dramatically enhance the look of a room. These are generally found in restaurants, sidewalks, and building exteriors, but adding one of these artistic illusions could give your home something many other do not have. These illusions are works of art and could truly change the look of your home.
Kids rooms, while rarely visited by guests, are a great place to add some fun wall art. Your kids will love having superheros, princesses, or their favorite dinosaur painted across their wall. We could paint Mickey Mouse on their wall, a sun and moon, or anything else your kiddos could think of.
These textures, designs, murals, and other creative ideas are a great way to create something in your house that is anything but boring. These can create a unique look and be as simple or intricate as you would like. Give your home something that makes it different, even if it is as simple as textures on your walls.
If you are sick of your neutral walls, all the same boring shade of tan, changed it up. It is not hard to create a look that makes a statement and changes your walls from something boring to something extraordinary, at least it is not hard for JC Toland.
Add a pop of color with a bright and fun accent wall, giving your home the color it needs. Create a chalkboard wall with chalk paint! Suddenly you will be able to write on your wall, making it useful for something other than just holding up your house. Add designs with layered paint colors, fading paint, or a popular pattern.
Let our decorative painters turn your boring walls into works of art, creating murals, textures, faux finishes, and even the rare and beautiful trompe l’oeil. These unique looks are sure to add interest to your walls. With these added to your wall, you won’t mind watching paint dry!
Remember, paint is easy to replace. Adding one of these unique and fun styles to your wall can easily be covered up when and if you decide to sell your home. So go for it, add something daring and bold to your home that will impress guests and create fresh new looks.
