Take advantage of one of the cheapest ways to decorate your home, use splashes of paint everywhere to make your home interior more exciting. A good looking and the well-furnished and decorated home sell faster say the real estate experts in Hannover.
Times are tough and spending a lot of extra cash on home decorating is not an option for many people. One of the cheapest ways to decorate a room is to add some paint and a little creativity. Paint is inexpensive and people that are thinking about faux finishing can stretch it even further by adding some glaze and some water to their paints to create that “see-through” look and layers of depth.
If you’re thinking about using paint to revive a room, consider going beyond the pale and paint more than the walls. Paint can revive a stale room in a number of different ways.
Paint the Trim
Review the trim in your home and consider changing it to a new, exciting color. While white and black trims are popular, coordinating and contrasting colors can be more vibrating and can create a cutting edge look in any home.
Paint the Furniture
Whether you have wood, metal, or plastic furniture, it all can be painted now. There are new paints and primers on the market that make a painting on almost any surface possible and attractive. So take your old and tired furniture and give it a fresh coat of paint to breathe new life into it. If you can’t bear to paint great grandma’s old rocking chair, buy a cheap one at a garage sale or even go dumpster diving to find your canvas.
Picture frames, vases, mirrors, lamps, planters, and other odds and ends can be revived with a fresh coat of paint. But plain paint is easy, how about something more exciting. Try your hand at freehand painting, stenciling, striping, and other faux finishing techniques to make the accessories pop and draw the eye.
Paint the Floors
Tired old hardwoods and concrete basement floors look great with paint. This is another situation where a solid coat of paint makes a room look fresh and clean but a faux finish technique can make the floor look like an expensive tiled floor, a stone oasis, a pond filled with koi any almost anything you can imagine.
As mentioned, there are paints and primers for painting any surface, and bathroom tile is not excluded. The preparation involved in painting bathtub tile is a bit arduous but it’s essential to complete all of the steps or you won’t get the result you want. But even so, it’s much less expensive to repaint your bathroom tiles than it is to have it ripped out and have new tiles installed.
