  • How to Give an Old Room New Life By Painting It

Last updated on January 14, 2021

Rather than spend a large amount of money on new furniture, decor, or a comprehensive remodel, consider the magic that a few coats of paint can do to transform a room. Paint will get you excited about your living space again. Revamp your home with our top five suggestions on how to dramatically change your living space with paint!

1. Use Stencils

Stencils can be used to add everything from shapes to words onto your wall. Stencils bring an extra touch of elegance to your home. A fun way to use a stencil on your wall is by painting on an inspiring quote, which acts as an everyday reminder of something that really resonates with you.

2. Go Bold

Stop playing it safe and pick the color that you’ve always wanted to have in your home! Use a deep blue as an accent wall or simply paint your entire room blush to mix it up and add an attention-grabbing feature to your space.

3. Artwork and Murals

Though there are plenty of ways to get a unique piece of art, why not stand out and paint a mural directly on the wall of your favorite room? If you don’t have the skills to do it yourself, reach out to a local company or artist in order to get something truly unique and meaningful on your wall.

4. Accent Wall

Accent walls are another way to add more interest and style to your home. Draw from other features in the room or select a complementary color to the hues already in the room. One creative way of incorporating an accent wall into your room is to create an ombré wall. You can DIY this job using just two colors, a sponge or other textured tool, and varying coats of paint.

5. Patterns

If you’re trying to decide between colors, there’s another solution that you may not have thought about: patterns. Paint stunning stripes on your walls to incorporate both colors, adding some extra style your home. Not a big fan of stripes? Try painting shapes for your colorful design. This modern idea is quite simple, using blocks of paint to break up a single color on your wall, adding more depth and interest to your room.
