Nothing beats creating a space that authentically expresses who you are when it comes to achieving the goal of your dream home. Infusing some personality to your home décor allows you to love your home and find joy when living there truly. And color provides an effective way to showcase who you are. Thankfully, sprucing up your home with color is a quick way to give your home a facelift, and you don’t have to spend much. In this article, we look at creative ways you can play with paint around your home to give it that personal touch.
Creative paint projects for a colorful home improvement
Transform your home’s color personality instantly with the following creative paint projects that you can undertake on your own or with the help of a professional.
Add an accent wall
Painting an accent wall is among the simplest ways to add life to an otherwise bald and boring décor. They bring in a breath of freshness while giving any room a stunning focal point. You can choose any color that you prefer. The only trick is to stick to your color palette for everything to tie up together well. For some intense personality, you don’t have to stick to a plain accent wall. Add some bold patterns with a different paint color to give it a dramatic twist.
Paint the ceiling
Ditch the usual white ceiling for a colorful option. Painting the ceiling a different color allows you to add color to any room in an unexpected way without making it feel overwhelmed. Choose the colors carefully to not only add your personality, but to evoke the right vibes for any room. For instance, you can do soft blues in the bathrooms for a relaxing effect.
Painting the ceiling can be a simple DIY project if you trust your painting skills. However, you might want to engage professional interior and exterior painting services for a top-notch job. This allows you to leverage expert insights on the ideal color choices for each room.
Paint a mural
Murals provide beautiful focal points for any room. They are also a stunning way to showcase your love for art while adding life to your walls with vibrant colors. If you are feeling artistic, you can try painting a mural on an accent wall as a DIY project. However, you can always hire someone to do it for you for a polished outcome. Choose shapes, images, and colors that not only inspire you but also reflect who you are. You can also go for simple geometric and fewer colors for that minimalist and simple vibe.
Frames can easily be overlooked, but giving them a fresh coat of color makes them pop, transforming the look instantly. You can try giving the picture frames in your living room a breath of fresh air with an interesting paint color. The same can be done on the frames of the bathroom and dress table mirrors for an upgraded look. Take frame painting a notch higher by highlighting window frames around the home with an accent color. You can try a contrasting color from the walls to brighten up the space or tone down the décor, whichever case it may be.
Paint a wall quote
If you are big on quotes and just want to feel inspired when you look at the walls, painting a quote on the wall is a good way to infuse this side of you with color. You only need a stencil cut to your desired size, tape and spray paint. Tape the stencil where you want your quote and spray the paint. You can choose your favorite color or colors to give it a personal touch. Alternatively, you can also go for a metallic finish, such as gold, to add an elegant and sophisticated look and feel.
Upgrade old furniture
Upcycling old furniture is a great way to show some care for the environment by saving it from landing in landfills. It is also an opportunity to infuse vintage with modern for an added visual interest. Get your spray paint and turn an old chair or table into a colorful delight. Experiment with some beautiful patterns to add character and make it stand out. You can also try different color accents for a stunning makeover. For instance, paint a pop of color on the interior shelves of an old cabinet and use it complete with a serious color, such as white on the outside.
You can always go right with painting your home when you want to upgrade your home quickly and on a budget. Moreover, color helps highlight your personality and make your home feel truly yours. To showcase the colorful personality of your home, try painting an accent wall, adding a mural, or painting the ceiling. You can also use paint colors to bring some old furniture to life, add color accents on frames, or write a favorite quote on the wall.
