Most people move into a home and are starting off with whatever colors the sellers chose to paint the walls in order to sell the house fast. This usually means they are painted in very neutral browns, tans and greys so that the potential buyer can imagine their own flare and furnishings easily in the home. This is a great color choice for many people but lots of people want to add some flare to their home with an accent wall or decorative stenciled wall. This is a great way to add a splash of color or fun without having to change the entire room or making a huge bold change all together. When you choose to have a wall accented or painted you can take some risks with bold colors or patterns. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc outlines what an accent wall or a decorative stenciled wall can do for the décor of your home.
What is the Purpose of an Accent Wall?
When it comes to choosing an accent wall there are a few things that need to be looked at before you begin. The first thing that you need to decide on is which wall you want to accent. This is a wall you want to draw the attention to in the room and bring the focus on. The wall can be wherever you want and can be in a bedroom, bathroom or even in a large living space. Then you need to look at the wall colors you have and if you are changing all the colors or if you are just adding the accent wall alone. Whatever you are going to do you need to look for colors that look good together and complement one another. Then you can start by taping off the area that you are going to paint and roll it on. To ensure that you get a good clean finish and full coverage call L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc to do the job professionally.
Painting Stenciled Walls
If you have decided to go with a stenciled wall you have a few more options and you also get to look through an array of different stencils. This can be anything from a swirl pattern to a block pattern to lettering. The stencil is laid in a repetitive pattern that repeats over and over and will cover either an entire wall or an area that you have chosen. Some people choose to frame a wall or room with the stencil instead of using it all over the surface. Many people will paint a darker under color and stencil with a white paint as the accent color. This is a very delicate process and using a professional that has some experience in stenciling walls like L.W. Winslow Painting Inc. is a great choice.
