Adding a new paint color is a great way to make significant changes in any room. And painting walls inside your home may garner you an impressive 107 percent return on your investment. 

If you’re looking for a few creative ways to use interior paint, you’re in luck.

Check out these awesome ideas that will brighten up your space and give it a fresh, new look. With a new coat of paint, you can easily transform how your home looks and how it feels.

Use Paint to Create an Abstract Design

If you love a modern look, consider making a fun geometric design comprised of different colors. It can be anything from circles and squares to arches or angled lines.

Apply your base coat first, then use painter’s tape to draw the outline of your shapes. Pick a contrasting color (just make sure it doesn’t clash) and fill in the outline, then wait for it to dry. Once you’re done, peel off the tape and you’ll have a bold, unique work of art on your walls.

Try Two Colors of Interior Paint

A fun and vibrant two-toned look can really make your space look and feel much brighter. Start with the bottom half of the walls and paint them a lighter color.

When applying a new coat of paint to the top half of the wall, choose something in a much bolder and brighter hue. For example, a creamy ivory color along the bottom chair rail contrasted with a bright mustard yellow will instantly make your space look and feel light and bright.

Infuse Pops of Color

If you want to paint your home to make it brighter, you don’t have to cover the entire walls with a new coat of interior paint. Try adding pops of color to accents instead, such as a door or window frame.

Start with a door that isn’t as prominent in your home such as the door leading to the backyard or the laundry room. This will give you a chance to decide whether or not you really love the color before you continue adding it to more accents in your home.

Paint Over Textured Walls

If you have brick or shiplap in your home, applying a new coat of paint is an easy way to give these spaces a fresh, new look. Decide whether you want to paint them the same color as the rest of the walls or if you’d rather try something brighter.

When painting walls with texture, make sure you get into all the nooks and crannies. Professional painters can help you paint these areas for a nice, smooth finish.

Get Creative with Paint

Whether you create shapes or highlight a textured wall, a new interior paint color will make your home feel bold and unique. Use these tips as inspiration for your next painting project.
