As the colors start changing outside, so should the colors in your home. Fall is the perfect time of year for home painting projects. Accent walls can make an interior room pop, and it even helps make a room feel larger than it really is. Whether you are looking for change in your home or you want to create contrast, adding an accent wall brings dimension to the room.
Choosing a paint color can be an overwhelming task and even more so when an accent wall is involved. The following tips can help make your interior paint project a breeze:
- Follow the ratio rule. 75:25 is the appropriate ratio of warm to cool colors in a room. Warm colors include brown, tan, yellow, and peach, whereas cool colors are shades of red, blue, and purple. Reserve cooler tones for your accent wall. If using two different colored paints is too drastic for you, opt for two different shades of the same color instead.
- Select the accent wall. Keep your home’s architecture in mind when choosing a wall to feature. Typically, you should choose the wall that is furthermost away when entering the room. If you don’t have the perfect wall for an accent wall, consider painting the ceiling a different color from the rest of the room.
- Do not paint more than one accent wall. Painting two colored accent walls turns out lopsided and throws off the balance to a room. It looks as though you ran out of paint. When it comes to painting an accent wall, remember to keep the focus on just one wall.
Interior painting can be a fun and rewarding task to do alone or with the help of others. Get creative this fall with an accent wall that pulls your room together.
