Paint is one of the easiest ways you can manipulate a space and change a room’s appearance without breaking the bank. When it comes to painting, you don’t always need to do the whole wall or room, and there are many ways you can get creative with it.  With the seemingly endless list of creative painting techniques out there, here are four clever tricks you can try for your next painting project. They offer an easy way to completely transform the look of your room without having to purchase any extra decor or intrude on your square footage. The following painting techniques are all you’ll need to give any room in your home a fresh and inviting vibe, no matter your aesthetic or style!


Try using multiple shades of one color like this family. They used  three shades of pink to achieve the sun-bleached, dappled effect of stucco. This works well for a casual and textured look and feel. We recommend that you choose light colors if you want to brighten up the space. 




Try this technique if you want to play with space and make it more inviting. The angled green painted wall adds interest to an otherwise plain corner, and draws your attention below to the reading nook below.





If you want to add a bit of an illusion to the room, try painting over objects. This restaurant space decided to paint half the wall blue. The arbitrary stopping point gives a comic nod to the usual paint job while helping ground the space. 





This simple black outline gives the pale blue a crisp, modern feel, and can work well with any color. We recommend you use high contrasting colors for this technique. The trim you use can be a color you want to bring out in the room for added consistency.
