How to Get Creative with Paint in Your Home

Does your home need something to make it a little more special? Would you enjoy being there more if it had some fresh life breathed into it? There are a ton of ways you can make your home more interesting to look at. Have you considered painting it? Don’t just settle for a normal paint job though. Get creative with it!

Paint an Accent Wall

Accent walls may not be quite as common as they used to be, but they are still quite popular in decorating. What matters most is how you feel about them, anyway. If you like the look of an accent wall, consider painting one for your house. 

Choose the room and wall with care. Accent windows work best in rooms that don’t have architectural features. Don’t be afraid to choose bold colors for accent walls. The wall is supposed to stand out.

Paint a Mural

You hang art in your home. Have you ever thought about painting it on your walls? Your walls are a perfect canvas for a mural. You could do this in any room you want, but some rooms are naturally more suited to murals than others. 

A mural is a perfect addition to your child’s bedroom. A playroom is another great choice. You could even paint a mural in your master bedroom. Just think about what themes and images fit the space best and go from there.

Paint Some Patterns

Patterned walls aren’t just for walls with wallpaper. You could paint patterns on the wall too. Use a patterned roller, which is much easier to work with than stencils, or mark your pattern out with painter’s tape. Whether you use a patterned roller or create your own pattern with painter’s tape, take care to line everything up cleanly so your finished result is even and matches up nicely. Painting patterns takes time, patience, and attention to detail, so make sure you’re willing to put in the effort if you want to do this yourself.


Getting creative with paint in your home is a great way to add some spice and make things a little more interesting visually. Go with something simple, like a solid accent wall, or get more detailed with a mural or painting patterns on your wall. Choose your colors wisely so you’ll be happy with the result. That way you’ll feel good about all the work you put into your project.
