Paint is one of the cheapest ways to update a home. Paint goes a long way in changing the look of just about any room in your home. It's an easy way to update your home as well, rather than doing a lot of renovation. If you can paint yourself, that's great, but if you can't paint a wall without streaks being left behind, or aren't able to paint straight lines - leave the work to the pros. Read on for a few painting trends you can do to your home for an updated look.
1. Neutral Colors
Neutral colors aren't anything all that new, but it's something that is making a big comeback. Neutral colors in lighter shades to give the home a more open and airy feel is on-trend right now. Think of off-whites, light beige, or even light grey colors. If you aren't thrilled about the lack of color in those colors, you can use lighter shades of green, yellow or even pink - but keep then very light so they aren't overwhelming.
Give a wall a little bit of extra design element by adding stripes to the wall. You can use whatever color you want and make them large, thick stripes, or thinner stripes. If you like the idea of a striped wall, but don't want too much of this look in your home, use it on a small or narrow wall in your home, or use it in a basement.
3. Geometric Shapes
This goes along with stripes, you can use geometric shapes on your walls for a decorative look. If you're going for a more modern look in your home, add geometric shapes on a wall in a bedroom or office using gold paint. Or if this is too bold for you, use glossy paint to paint the geometric shapes on a wall that is the same color but has satin paint - so the shapes stand out, but aren't too overwhelming.
4. Dark Colors
Deep and dark colors such as dark gray, black or navy can be used in any room of the house, but keep in mind that using such as dark color may make the room feel a little more closed in or smaller. Think about painting only one wall the dark color to give the room a little bit of balance, but while still getting the feel of the dark color.
