Living Room Painting: 3 Things You Need to Know


Living Room Painting Ideas

The color of a living room not only reflects its overall design style, but it can affect the atmosphere as well. Different paint colors can be used to emphasize and highlight different features of the room. There are many things to take into consideration when it comes to painting the living room. Sometimes, unusual design features of the space make it difficult to settle on a color. If you are facing the same problem, why not get advice and ideas from the house painting experts at Repairs and Paints?

Today, I am going to share with you some amazing living room painting ideas that will make your living space look great. These professional living room painting ideas will help you get the best results out of your DIY home improvement activity.

Emphasize the size

There are a number of cool ways in which you can emphasize the size of your living room. I suggest that you choose light colors - such as beige to make your room appear bigger. White colors along with undertones of green and blue can make the ceiling and walls appear to retreat so the area appears spacious.

Downplay the size

In the event that you are looking to make a large living room appear enclosed and smaller, you can choose darker colors. Colors such as red, orange and brown will help you gain this effect. You must be careful when using dark colors on the walls. It can be difficult to change these darker colors if you don’t like it. The process of changing the color is also time consuming and expensive. You will have to coat the walls with primer and give them a lighter shade. The best thing to do is to test a small area of the living room by applying a dark color of your choice. Observe the color in different lighting conditions. Cover the rest of the walls with the same color if you like the effect.

Consider the atmosphere

Before you settle on a paint color for your living room, consider what type of atmosphere you want to create. Green and blue shades can create a sense of calmness and peace. Consider if the living area is used mainly for rest and relaxation or reading and research. Choose a color according to the most common activities that take place in the living room. For example, an artistic atmosphere can be created by a jewel toned periwinkle while a writing schedule can be inspired with red and orange colors.
