Ah, paint. Whether you need to conceal the mysterious marks left on the wall by the last homeowners or tenants, make your space feel cozier, or you’re just plain old bored with the current look of your living room, there is nothing quite like the effect a fresh coat of paint can have on a room. Best of all, it’s an easy way to transform your living room without breaking the bank. From eclectic to traditional, we’ve got you covered with these 12 brilliant paint techniques.
1. Enlarge your living room with reflective, cool colors.
Perhaps one of the most common desires people have in regard to their living room is more space. Painting the room with cool shades that reflect light like deep and natural blues, greens, and purples can have a depth amplifying effect.
2. Make it pop with bright, fruity hues.
Take a cue from pop artist Roy Lichtenstein and brighten up your living room with a pop of colorful paint. Use complimentary brights for your decor with some neutrals interspersed so the room isn’t too loud. Try colors like Yellow Flash, Cerulean, and Grenadine by Behr.
