When an interior painter paints the interior of the home, they typically use a base color that is applied with a roller or brush in a flat finish. If you want to add a different style to your home, there are other interior painting techniques that can be used. For example, a faux finish produces the appearance of natural elements such as marble or stone.
These painted scenes cover an entire wall of the room. This type of interior painting technique is used in a child’s room. Sometimes they will cover all four walls of a child’s room with simple shapes made in bright colors. When an interior painter paints a mural in other rooms of the house, he limits them to one wall and they are more sophisticated. A common type of mural is that of nature scenes.
With these techniques, an interior painter will apply swirls of paint with a brush to create ocean waves, flowers, and other motifs. They can be used on the walls or in the borders. Decorative paint can be applied to the backsplash tiles instead of the walls behind the stove or sink area.
• Stenciling – This is done by applying color using sponges or brushes within a cutout shape. This will create a pattern when you remove the template. This method is mainly used in country-themed homes. Stencils are made in the middle or along the top of the wall as a border or even on stair risers. The stencil does not require artistic skill to create the images. All you need to do is spread the color inside the cutout shape on the template.
• Stripes: It is about filling the color within the lines of a particular space. The interior painter will place heavy-duty tape in straight lines on the wall. The further apart the tape is placed, the wider the stripes will be. After the wall is painted, the masking tape is removed, revealing light streaks. If you want to add colors, you can put masking tape on both sides of the stripe and paint between the strips of masking tape. When you remove the strips of masking tape, you will have a strip of color between the main colors on the wall.
• Sponge – This is a very simple technique to add decoration to your walls. All the interior painter has to do is dip a sponge in the paint and stamp it onto the walls. To give more depth to the mottled results different shades of the same color in dark, light and medium tones. When performing this painting technique, a type of porous or natural sponge should be used to obtain a strong texture.
Use these techniques to add your personal touch to the room.
