Ways To Paint A Small Powder Room
Do you have a small powder room?This room is often one of the first rooms your guests see and can add tons of personality to your home. To help even a small powder room achieve a good effect, you can give this room a good color. You can applying paint colors that can really change the look of your powder room. Bright walls make a room seem larger, so selecting an off-white or light pastel is a better choice than working with dark colors, which would make a small powder room feel like a closet. To enhance this room-expanding effect, add a chair rail and paint the room in two different colors. Your colors can be two shades of the same powder-blue, lavender, beige or sea-foam-green color. The chair rail can be as simple as a wallpaper border, with the lighter color above its horizon line and a slightly darker version of the same hue painted below. Simple faux finishing techniques applied in the space above the chair rail can provide added dimension to a tiny room. For a modern look, paint the entire wall in 4-inch stripes of the same color of paint but different sheens.
While the sponging and rag-rolling techniques of faux finishing aim to simulate room, expanding depth, textured paints actually are three-dimensional. Textured effects can be as simple as random grain or take on shape with swirls reminiscent of outdoor stucco. Special texturizing paint rollers make these effects novice-friendly. Venetian plaster is a painting technique that imparts a smooth rolling texture suggestive of classical frescoes. Decorative qualities aside, textured finishes are also very effective at concealing any flaws in the wall.
