Redecorating or renovating your home is never easy and it just gets especially harder and more tedious when you need to paint as well. Sloshing on one coat of paint after another can be draining if you’re doing it alone and still have the whole house to think about.
And let’s not even start talking about those ceilings! But even though you may stick to the same old staid exterior paint job, it doesn’t have to be the same for the interior – you could always try some outlandish but wonderful interior painting ideas. If nothing else you’ll be guaranteeing a reaction from all those who enter your house.
By keeping the exterior painting plans to the bare minimum, you can devote more time and creativity to the inside. You can let your imagination run wild with all those interior painting ideas you always wanted to try out but never got around to. And, as they say, there’s no time like the present, and be honest, when are you going to get round to redecorating your house again?
Don’t get alarmed though, when I’m talking about out of this world interior painting ideas I’m not saying that you should go with something that resembles a Picasso painting. I’m talking about something more along the lines of a paint job that will reflect back who you are.
So your interior painting ideas need not be anything bolder than a streak of vibrant colour on one wall, surrounded by soothing colours on the other walls. This works very well in any house and the vibrant colour that you pick out can be either soothing or primal, depending on what you want to show of yourself. You could, of course, always go to extremes and emulsion all the walls a bright vibrant shade or even mix and match different shades on different walls.
If you’re doing this then you might want to think about the effect you’ll have and whether you can actually live with the colour scheme. Wild and inspired interior painting ideas are all well and good, but you should always take into account whether you’re going to be able to stand the sight of your newly panted walls or not next month. If you are going to have to repaint everything again, it kind of defeats the purpose.
I don’t mean that you should try to restrict your creative urges or stifle your interior painting ideas. All I mean is that some of your bolder ideas, should perhaps be made the subject of a test-run elsewhere first.
Don’t think of painting your home as a chore. And, if you want to, you could always think of yourself as Michelangelo or Da Vinci or any of those great artists and paint a stunning picture on your walls. The only requirement is that you turn your great interior painting ideas into reality and that you have lots of fun while you’re at it.
