So, here you are then, in your new house! Its a bit of a mess though because the previous owner was in a hurry to sell and had been in the middle of redecorating. But, you don’t really mind that though, since it gives you the perfect chance to do your house up just the way you want it.
However, now you need to decide where everything should go and which colours would 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 house. The moment you step in through a door ideas assail you. That stylish standard lamp you bought a while ago would look fantastic in the corner, and you’re pretty sure that your existing couch 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 at with pride every time you see it. And, naturally, 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 over the top.
But where can you get decent wall painting ideas from, and how do you go about getting the wall painting actually done? There are a few ways that you could go about this, the easiest of which being if you have an artistic flair, so that you could get your wall painting ideas out of your head, so to speak and paint the walls as you see fit. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t very artistic and we are hesitant to pick up a brush or roller and apply the first coat of paint without supervision. In this case then, you will need some help.
You could begin by hiring a professional decorator to help you decide what would look good or you could sit down and watch some DIY programs on the TV, where they show some pretty good ideas on what to do when decorating a house and will even give you some great wall painting ideas.
If neither of these options is suitable for you, you could just try going down to your local hardware store with fabric swatches and colour sheets of your most prominent pieces of furniture and enlist their assistance on stylish wall decorating ideas.
You might come up with a mixed bag 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 eclectic house. It reflects who I am just perfectly.
