Your living room is one of the few places with high traffic in the home. As such, you need to make it as welcoming and comfortable s possible. A good coat of paint can help you turn a dull living room into a bright, welcoming one. There are so many paint ideas to choose from depending on your style and personal preference. You can go for bold colors or light colors, the choice is entirely yours.
Paint ideas you can try out
Below, we will have a look at a few paint ideas that you may try in your next living room paint project.
Small living room
In case yours is a small living room then you might have to consider lighter colors as opposed to bold ones if you wish to create an illusion of having a bigger room than what you actually have. Before selecting color, it is important to take a look at your decorations and furniture so that the color you chose complements them.
If you wish to add a feel of energy into your small living room then you should go for colors such as beige, yellow-green and grey. If you wish to have an airy living room that is calming to the soul then you need to go for pale shades of lavender, green, blue or brown. If bold colors are your thing then you don’t have to fret that you have a small space to work with. Instead, it is a good idea to go for bolder shades that are very dark or bright. You can go for colors such as orange, brown, red, yellow or reddish purple to make your living room really pop! Be sure to contrast the bold color shades however if you don’t want to overwhelm your living space. Try painting different colors that beautifully contrast on different walls.
To further create the illusion of space, you can even add reflective objects such as mirrors, glass or metal wall art. While adding these objects however, remember not to overdo it otherwise you will end up overwhelming your living space.
Large living rooms
For large living rooms, you can go with bold or bright colors, the choice is entirely yours. Ideally, you should go for neutral shades or accent the walls with bright and bold colors.
In case you prefer using pale colors, try to incorporate even brighter colors as well in order to create an opposite effect. As far as decorations go, you can go with big flowers, or big pieces of art to get a good flow to the space.
Painting can be a great way to showcase your style and preferences. It can also be a great way to give off an illusion of something for example turning a small living room into a ‘big’ one. Be careful however in the colors that you choose and pay close attention to the furniture and decoration in the room. Afterall, you don’t want to make a big mess of things!
