Home Decorating With Textured Paint

Home Decorating With Textured Paint



Home Decorating with Textured Paint
Textured paint and​ faux finishes have become more popular in​ recent years than at​ any other point in​ history .​
One reason​ for​ this​ is​ because so many home improvement stores are offering classes for​ those who are willing to​ pay the price for​ the paint so that the average Joe or​ Jane can recreate these fabulous finishes on​ their own walls as​ well .​
The fact is​ it​ is​ truly amazing what works of​ art can be created with the clever and​ creative use of​ textured paint .​
Faux finishes can be used to​ create the illusion​ of​ anything from plaster or​ brick to​ leather and​ a​ few amazing things in​ between .​
Those who are skilled at​ applying faux finishes are in​ great demand​ for​ their artistic talents though most home owners can do a​ passable job if​ they are willing to​ take the time required to​ properly learn the technique .​
Even wood grains can be imitated through the use of​ a​ talented faux finisher and​ paint .​
Using textured paints and​ faux finishes can be done in​ almost any room in​ the house though they seem to​ be most common​ in​ living rooms and​ kitchens as​ a​ major design feature .​
There are some ambitious homeowners who have decided to​ take this​ style of​ painting into every room of​ the home .​
While it​ may seem a​ good idea in​ theory there are some drawbacks to​ this​ as​ well .​
First of​ all, textured paints and​ faux finishes are very time consuming .​
if​ you​ are hiring a​ professional to​ do the work their time is​ a​ lot of​ your​ money and​ this​ is​ something that really needs to​ be considered .​
is​ the amount of​ time really worth the reward of​ the finished project as​ far as​ you, as​ the homeowner, are concerned? Most people find that it​ isn't worth all that much money and​ time but others really appreciate the look and​ feel that it​ is​ vital to​ their enjoyment of​ their homes .​
Whichever category you​ fall into it​ is​ important that you​ realize that this​ could become a​ costly proposition.
Another thing to​ consider is​ that many who manage to​ bring a​ texture or​ faux finish of​ some sort into every room of​ their homes often decide after a​ little while to​ remove some of​ their hard work .​
The reason​ for​ this​ is​ that in​ small doses faux finishes and​ textured paints are novel and​ spectacular .​
in​ large doses they can be more than slightly overwhelming and, more importantly, unimpressive .​
There is​ something to​ be said about the fact that sometimes less is​ more .​
this​ doesn't mean that some homes do not wear faux finishes beautifully in​ almost every nook and​ cranny .​
Some homes are simply meant to​ be decorated from one end of​ home to​ the other end .​
These homes are simply lovely no matter how many new finishes are added to​ the walls, furniture, fireplace mantles, and​ bathroom cabinets .​
There never seems to​ be too much in​ these homes .​
There are some homes however that beg for​ moderation​ when it​ comes to​ designs such as​ this​ .​
Listen to​ your​ home when decorating and​ you​ should have a​ much better decorating experience overall without overwhelming either your​ home or​ your​ guests .​
if​ faux finishes and/or textured painting is​ something you​ would like to​ incorporate into your​ home decorating plans you​ should be delighted to​ discover that there are many, many resources both online and​ offline that can assist you​ with your​ goals .​
The first and​ best choice is​ to​ check with local hardware and​ home improvement stores in​ order to​ see if​ they are offering any free workshops on​ faux finishes or​ textured painting in​ your​ area .​
if​ they are then you​ are set .​
However, if​ they are not your​ local library may prove to​ be a​ valuable source for​ videos, magazines, and​ books that offer step-by-step instructions .​
The Internet is​ also an​ excellent source .​
Do not forget the value of​ spaces such as​ YouTube and​ Google Video as​ they may have some actual demonstrations or​ how to​ videos to​ help as​ well .​
