Time for In-House Painting

Home Painting

from our "home remodeling" project library

Give your home a new look by incorporating some of the latest styles in home painting. Current trends draw from fashion, the global influence on the environment, as well as traditional color psychology. No matter what your taste or sense of design, you can change the feel of any room in your home with a few cans of paint, some time, and an openness to try something new.

Paint Styles Take Their Cue from the Environment

As environmental issues are now moving to the forefront of news and our social conscience, many of the hottest colors featured in architecture and home design magazines draw from nature. You will find many interior paints in home improvement stores to feature names that make mention of the outdoors, flora, and fauna in their color names. Bring a bit of the outdoors into your home by featuring one of these fashionable colors which typically feature greens, blues, and modern, spiced up neutral colors and earth tones such as rich browns and vibrant terra cotta colors.

Paint Styles Can Impact Your Home’s Mood

The use of bold primary colors is very much a part of current trends in interior home painting. Blue is calming and makes you feel rested. Often time homeowners choose to use these hues in their bedrooms. On the other end of the spectrum, an energizing bold color such as red tends to make room occupants feel the need to be active. Many elect to use reds in dining rooms and home offices because it has the ability to create a sense of action and drama.

The Art and Joy of Wallpaper

Wallpaper can add wonderful color, texture, and style to any room in your home. Contemporary wallpaper comes in all types, made for different rooms in your home, including high-moisture rooms like the kitchen and bathroom. Designed to suit a variety of tastes, from classic to modern, wallpaper has evolved from its more traditional applications to include some new trends and techniques.

Faux Finishes

Many homeowners have experimented with apply a faux finish to wallpaper, giving their walls added texture and depth. Dipping wallpaper in a faux finish and applying various shapes and designs before attaching it to walls is how this process works. The finish can also be colored, enhancing the original color of the paper, without the use of paint.

Giving Imagery to Rooms in Your Home

Some homeowners now use wallpaper to create images and murals on their walls, making their rooms works of art. Texture is a big trend in wallpaper, giving rooms elegance and age, complementing a room's furniture and textile choices.

Patterns Galore

Patterns have become a very popular wallpaper trend, including everything from animals, exotic plants, planes and trains, subtle pinstripes, and more.

Not Just "Paper" Anymore

A variety of materials are used to "wallpaper" walls these days, including the following creative ideas:

  • Cloth
  • Glass
  • Sand
  • Grass

Wallpaper in its original form is still available, of course, and comes in a range of thicknesses and textures.

Whatever the style or design of your home, there is bound to be a wallpapering idea that matches it.
