Paint an Accent Wall

Adding an accent wall is a popular trend that won’t be fading out anytime soon. Accent walls are a clever way of making smaller spaces seem bigger. An essential tool for any homeowner that wants to free up cramped or busy spaces. Accent walls are also the easiest way to divide spaces in a room. Open living areas can be instantly transformed into two or more defined spaces with a fresh coat of paint.

To achieve this goal, paint one wall with a rich, dark color to create visual depth, making a room feel larger. Hues such as Sherwin-Williams’ In the Navy and Tricorn Black, are favorite picks for completing this look. Additionally, different textural options exist as well, such as exposed brick or wood paneling. Yes, you can finally choose that loud print or extra-bold color without hesitation.

Boost Bedroom Colors

Just because your bedroom is for sleeping, doesn’t mean it has to be dull or lifeless. Embrace neutral colors such as Intuitive and Dhurrie Beige for a serene yet colorful splash. Soft colors can brighten and freshen any room without making it feel too busy. Light colored walls and ample use of mirrors and windows not only reflects natural light but the use of mirrors also gives the optical illusion of space, making the room seem larger than it actually is. The instant pop of color will brighten and re-energize any room!

Transform Boring Spaces

It’s amazing how something so simple as a coat of colorful paint can instantly energize and transform your space. Perhaps one of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to transform a boring area is to apply paint to unexpected places, such as behind a bookcase. Add a splash of paint behind built-in bookcase, as they are an ideal place to start since you don’t need to paint a large area. Other fun places to add a pop of color include painting fireplace mantels, the insides of closets, hallways and ceilings.

Paint for Cozy Spaces

Lighter paint colors are great for making smaller spaces feel bigger and brighter, but there may be areas within the home that call for a different atmosphere altogether.

A home office or den are a perfect place to experiment with darker hues and textures. Whether it’s adding a dark accent wall or painting all the walls, darker paints can make rooms cozier and warm.
