When it’s time to repaint your walls, it’s easy to just go for the same color and call it a day. However, this is a great opportunity to bring a whole new look into your interior by doing something different with your walls. You can boost the level of luxury your home exudes with a few tips and tricks up your sleeve, and here are a few of them:
The importance of the right color
Painting your interior is not something you do every year, so it’s essential to understand the importance your color choice has. The hue you go for can make or break the entire design, so it’s useful to consult a few guides. For instance, some parts of the home benefit more from bold colors than others. In addition, some colors simply feel more luxurious than others (take deep burgundy as an example), not to mention the ever-changing color trends that keep giving us new ideas. It’s up to you to decide what your priorities are.
Open up the space
Sometimes, “simplicity” is what screams “luxury.” Going for a simple color palette that makes use of tonal whites is bound to achieve a sophisticated effect. If the majority of the furniture in the room also boasts light colors, the entire room will instantly look more spacious and open. You probably already know that white reflects light the most effectively, so your room will feel bright and luxurious. Besides off-white, crisp white is also a popular choice in Australian households lately as it has a cooler, more modern vibe.
Give the same treatment to your ceiling
In some rooms, such as the bedroom, you can achieve an interesting effect by painting your ceiling the same color as the walls. If the color that you opted for is a deeper hue, this will help control the brightness of the room, allowing you to have a better night’s sleep. It is also undeniable that the space will feel cozier and with the right decorations, the result will look amazing.
A bit of tasteful interest
While some people consider it dated, the truth is that wallpapers still have a considerable foothold in interior design. And while people might not cover all of their walls with busy patterns anymore, combining an eye-catching design with a solid color creates for the perfect level of interest in a well-thought-out interior. This year, exciting patterns such as opulent Art Deco-inspired motifs can make your home look like a 1920’s mansion. Just make sure you combine the color of your wallpaper and wall paint well.
Another thing to consider when choosing your wall paint is the texture you want to go for. Matte and glossy paint have completely different visual effects, as well as advantages and disadvantages, so every room will have to be considered separately. Beside matte and glossy, today there are also metallic finishes that create a completely unique and unexpected look, so if you want something dramatic, think about those. A metallic finish is perfect for creating a simple feature wall for a sophisticated effect.
Get it done professionally
While painting your walls might not seem like an impossible DIY project, considering that you will have to live with the result for the next few years, getting the task done professionally would be the best thing to do. Sydneysiders often turn to North Shore painters to get advised on what the right the color for their room would be, not to mention the result will be much more polished if you don’t experiment but trust the people who know what they are doing.
Keep it cohesive
The same way you match the solid color of your wall paint to any wallpaper or feature wall you opted for, you can also match your color choice to furniture elements to create a cohesive design that will look like a magazine page. For instance, built-in elements like kitchen counters can provide the perfect base for you to match your wall paint with, but even small details like throw pillows can pull the design together.
Wall paint has an enormous effect on the overall look of an interior, so repainting your walls is an easy way to take your space to the next level. Hopefully, the aforementioned tips gave you enough inspiration to turn your home beautiful and luxurious.
Luxury Paint Colors
Dusty Blue, somewhere between blue and gray, this velvety shade can be used as a neutral. It looks lovely with bright white trim, but with rich, black accents, can be even more impactful.
Muted Green, the blue-green paint is rich yet not too dark, and earthy yet not too heavy. It looks best with medium and dark wood tones and can be mixed with a broad range of interior styles.
Pale Orange, it does add a little Feng Shui energy to your house. According to experts, orange and red colors bring happiness and joy to a room, which makes things feel more friendly and attractive.
Apple Red, is powerful and energetic, it looks mostly refreshing with white trim. While it’s a bold hue, it’s an everlasting version of red that will look great for years.
Light Gray, among the small number of timeless and classic shades this is the perfect neutral. It is a classic shade of gray that matches accent colors. Light silvery grays work gorgeously in guest bedrooms and in front entryways.
Dark Green, giving us a sense of balance that is comforting and peaceful. It does harmonize with tones of gray, mustard, and pebble perfectly.
Dark Blue, the way the light reflects off of it is stunning and gives any room a lot of attractiveness. A blueish gray this deep gives a tranquil, comforting feeling and works very well in a place like the bedroom.
Soft Greige, pale colors are also fueling a hot home trend. It is a subtle shade of greige, perfect for enveloping a room and making it feel like a cozy retreat.
Warm White, you can’t go wrong with a lovely creamy white, no matter what room you choose.
Best Taupe, it’s a lovely color that people fall hard for because the shade is very easy to live with—it is stunning paired with white. It also works well with a palette of blues, especially denim and country blue colors.
