PAINT STYLE: Your Home, Only Better!

Make your home stand out by expressing your personal style. Here are a few decorative faux paint styles to explore:

Sponge Painting: You've probably seen this technique, it's popular for bathroom walls. Sponge technique is achieved by applying one solid color to the wall and then sponging another color, or two, over the same area. The results vary depending upon paint saturation, what types of sponges you use, and how well your paint colors blends together. If you have walls that have minor imperfections in their color or texture, this technique is also a great concealer.

rag rolling: Similar to sponge painting this process includes a base color and additional colored layers. As implied, the tool used in this method is a rolled up rag instead of a sponge to create the layers. If you have walls that have minor imperfections in their color or texture, this technique is also a great concealer. In addition, this techinique has become a popular choice to enhance smooth cement basement floors.

Metallic paint, suede paint, and stone paint are some of the recent additions to faux paints now available. These paints create the effects of metal, suede, and stone just as their name implies. Beware these paints are normally pretty pricey paint by comparison, however by using these paints to achieve the desired faux surface you're looking for, it is often cheaper than the raw materials.
