If you’ve been spending a lot of time inside lately and are craving something new, you might not need to look further than a new coat of paint. Colors are the perfect way for homeowners to change up the feeling of a space without any major renovations or expenses. Painting can be a great DIY project, and depending which room you’re painting, it can even be a fun activity for older kids to help out with. Let’s take a look at some ideas to help you get inspired:

Minimalist

A coat of bright white paint can instantly freshen up a room. Remember, if you’re covering a darker color, you’ll likely want to prime or at least invest in a high-quality paint to ensure you get the coverage you need. White walls are a great way to achieve a more minimalist vibe in your space, especially if you’re on a decluttering mission already. Some homeowners worry that white walls may look cold or sparse, but with the right artwork, furniture, and decor, they can still make a space feel cozy.

Accent Wall

An accent wall is a fun way to play with color even if you’re not up for painting the entire room. Choosing one wall as a focal point in the room gives you an opportunity to go bold. While you might not consider a dramatic color for every wall, an accent wall gives you the opportunity to choose a more interesting color without worrying about it overwhelming the space. It’s also a great option if you feel that your style is constantly changing. It can be a quick project to update the color of a single wall as opposed to an entire space.

Warmth

If you’re really wanting to make a room feel warmer, paint can help set the tone. If you’re wanting to stay neutral, go with creamier shades as opposed to bright white. If you’re ready to get a bit more creative, shades like mustard yellow, tangerine, and teal can really pull a space together. Thinking about how these colors will work with your furniture is key.

Personality

When you’re painting to get your home ready to sell, most buyers go with neutral colors to appeal to the largest audience. If you’re planning on staying put for a while though, paint is a perfect opportunity to infuse a bit more personality into a space. This is especially true in kids’ rooms. Using paint to express your inner creativity and to let your kids take some design initiative in their rooms can be a great option for homeowners looking to make this house feel a little more like them.
