If you want to give your living room a whole new look, the cheapest way to do so is with paint. You can easily paint your living room and make it look attractive by using opaque paint on your walls and enhancing the paint with decorative paint touches such as stencils, sponge painting and even stamp painting.
It is a known fact that painting is much easier when there is nothing in your way. This means empty out the room, or at least as much as possible. If you are painting your living room, move large furniture pieces to the center and cover them up with old sheets or drop cloths. Although it seems like an unnecessary step to wipe the walls down, it is a very important step. Whether you can see it or not, there is buildup on the walls of dirt, dust, and oils from your hands. Removing this debris prior to painting will allow the paint to adhere to the walls. You should also fill in any nail holes or cracks with spackling, as well as tape off adjacent walls, window trim, and light switch or outlet covers. Use drop cloths, newspapers, or a roll of paper to cover the floor.
If you want the room to be peaceful and relaxing, think of light, natural colors, such as soft whites, creams, beiges, sage greens and other earth tones that give you a soothing feeling. If you want a cheery room, pick cheery colors, such as bright white, yellow, warm pink or any color that feels sunshiny and happy. For an invigorating, classy room, choose warm, dark colors, from burnt orange to eggplant to chocolate. To make your living room cool and posh, pick stark black, white and cool blues.
Do you want something as unique as your personal style? Why not consider the following innovative painting options for the living room? A customized message can become a perfect way to make a bold statement. Choose a typographical design for the living room and paint a large monogram on the wall to give it a personalized look. You can blur the boundaries between the ceiling and the walls with the help of ombre effect. Faux molding and faux wood patterns can create an elegant look in the living room without the need of an exorbitant budget.
