So here you are, you’ve bought your new house! Its a bit of a mess since the previous owner was in a hurry to sell and had been in the middle of redecorating. You don’t really mind that though, since it gives you the perfect opportunity to do your house up exactly the way you want it to be done.
However, now you need to decide where everything goes and what colours will suit which rooms, but you don’t have any wall painting ideas.
So, you eagerly look through your new keys and wander through your new home. The moment you step in through a door ideas assail you. That stylish standard lamp you bought a while ago would look great in the corner, and you’re pretty sure that your existing sofa set will fit in that other room. And you know that a mahogany table would look stunning in the hallway. The only thing you really don’t have much of a clue about are wall painting ideas.
You definitely don’t want to just dab on a few coats of neutral coloured paint and be done with it. What you want is a masterpiece, something that you can look on with pride every time you see it. And, of course, you should be able to keep looking at it with pleasure for quite some time to come as well, so it shouldn’t be too severe.
But where can you get good wall painting ideas from, and how do you go about getting the wall painting actually done? There are a few ways to go about this, the easiest of which being if you have an artistic streak, so that you could get your wall painting ideas off the cuff, so to speak and paint the walls as you see fit. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t very artistic and we are loathe to pick up a brush or roller and apply the first coat of paint without supervision. In this scenario then, you will need some assistance.
You could begin by hiring a professional interior designer to help you to decide which styles would look suit your home or you could sit down and watch some DIY TV programs, in which they show some pretty stylish ideas on what to do when re-decorating a house and will even give you some stylish wall painting ideas.
If neither of these options is viable for you though, you could just try going down to your local DIY shop with fabric swatches and colour sheets of your most prominent pieces of furniture and enlist their help on stylish wall decorating ideas.
You may come up with a hodge-podge of wall painting ideas with this last suggestion, but I found that it was the one that worked best for me and now I’m very proud of my slightly quirky house. It reflects who I am just perfectly.
