Paint the Home Decorating Tool of Champions
We all know that color can have a significant impact on any room in the home. However, knowing and seeing the truth in action are two entirely different things. The true impact of color
on the overall look and feel of a room is nothing short of amazing. If you have any doubt, try painting a room in a color you do not like and see how much time you are willing to spend in that room-even if it was a favorite room before it was painted.
For this reason you need to consider carefully the combination of colors you wish to incorporate into each room of your home and how these colors will affect the rooms they will be ‘overflowing’ into and how they will effect you on a day to day basic. It is true that most people are attempting to trend away from the idea of having the same color in every room of the house. Instead more people are opting to have every room as a fresh palate whenever possible. This allows for maximum options when it comes to decorating a home and allows each room to be similar to some degree but maintain its very own unique personality if that is your wish.
Paint is an amazing instrument for home decorating when you think about it. In addition to the ability to change the color of a room, paint can actually do so much more when artfully or craftily applied and it is one of the cheap home decorating ideas that you can do yourself. You can create beautiful murals on your walls that tell stories about your family or simply that express an emotion or sentiment of the moment. Wall Words are becoming more popular and you can order exactly what you want or if you have a steady hand you can save some money by painting them by hand Paint can be used in order to write messages to occupants of the home or visitors on the wall as well, or to stencil borders that are sure to delight all who enter. All of this and so much more can be accomplished with the simple application of paint and a little bit of skill.
In addition to these things above there are faux finishes and textures that can be created with the use of paint. One that is a current favorite on the market is a faux plaster affect that is achieved with paint, a lot of hard work, and a rock solid set of instructions. The result of this labor can be nothing short of stunning as a design or home decorating affect. Taking the time to learn skills such as this can not only improve your enjoyment of the painting process but putting these skills in action can greatly improve your enjoyment of your home.
In addition to the faux finishes that can be achieved with paint there are other textured paint affects that many people are learning to their great joy and amazement. The results of many of these efforts is a beautiful and tastefully decorated home at significantly less than half the cost that hiring a professional to do the work would have cost. Many of these things can be achieved with paint and a few special brushes or rags alone further indicating the profound affect that a can or two of paint really can have on almost any room in your home.
