How a Half Painted Wall is a Simple, Yet Effective, Color Solution

We’re always trying to add color to our home. Often, we might have a place that looks killer, but when it comes to the walls, you might feel that it’s missing something. Well, the idea of incorporating faux stone panels and a half painted wall is always one option that you might have for your home. There are lots of great things you can do with this, and this article will go over how a half-painted wall is a simple, yet effective solution for your home.



The cool thing about these half painted walls it that you get the option of higher or lower ceilings, for example, putting some fauxstone panels towards the top and painting it a brighter color will give your home the illusion of a lower ceiling, or you can simply paint a darker color. To make it a higher ceiling, put the faux stone panels or the color that you want to use to darken it at the lower end of the wall and the higher color up, because it’ll allow your eye to draw up to the other side of the room.  This is good for the times when you need to make low walls look higher, but also to make high ceilings not look as heavy and bold, and it also create a more intimate setting if you lower the wells as well.



Then there is the subtlety and the contrast of this.  If you’re going to do a half wall, you’ll need to figure out how bold or subtle you want the look to be.  The key to painting is to add some color to your space without making it too much. When you’re looking to do this sort of painting, you should pick two colors that are in the same family, and by then, the walls that are subdued will indeed look much more sophisticated and a lot softer, and it won’t overpower the room.

However, if you really want to make the home pop and create a showstopper, you still can create this contrast by taking your room and putting two contrasting bold shades in there in order to help with color blocking.  Really, whatever sort of direction that you take with this will allow you to create the right sort of room that you’re looking for, and the right kind of place you feel that you need.



When you’re painting a room and wanting to really make it the best that it can be, try painting a half wall. You don’t have to do all of the rooms, but even n accent wall is one way to do this, and if you try this sort of thing, you can create a space that is not only a lot better, but it feels a whole lot calmer, and you’ll be able to add some dimension and some visual interest to the room that you’re creating and working with too.
