Interior Painting Ideas

Choosing from several interior painting ideas sometimes seems like a daunting task, particularly as needs differ for every part of the house. In one room you may want to liven up the atmosphere, in another you'd just like to create a bit of drama, or you simply wish to design a cozy and warm environment. The right choice of paints can help you turn a room into a retreat.

Find a bit of time to do some reading prior to deciding on what to choose from several interior painting ideas. What paint type is suitable for your interior: matte, oil, latex, gloss or satin? You need to find out how to select the right one and be satisfied with the decision and the finished decor. Other similar dilemmas are about the type of paint brush to use and several others. In most cases, acrylic latex paints are the most popular for simple interior design because they offer durability, easy clean and less smell as compared to oil-based paints.

For moldings and other similar features, you should use gloss paint. You can find numerous interior painting ideas for kitchen and bathroom that recommend only semi-gloss and gloss paint for these rooms. The shiny and smooth surface that gloss paint provides makes it resistant to moisture and temperature variations. Semi-gloss latex paint also works great for kids' rooms because it is non-toxic, and easy to clean.

Satin paint is often part of interior painting ideas for bedrooms, dining rooms and hallways. It is easy to clean, but should be used on less exposed areas than the kids' rooms. Even so, it makes an excellent choice for a busy family home. As for matte paint, it works great on large surfaces, it is inexpensive and it allows you to cover the blemishes in walls or ceiling as it does not reflect light. This is not possible with the other types of paint that only work on really smooth, clean surfaces.

Other than the color and paint choice, you can rely on innovative interior painting ideas. Achieve special effects by combining different painting styles! Extra color can add a whole new lease of life to a room. The results could be so outstanding that you won't even believe how great things can turn out. You just need to do a bit of reading and discover what options you have. Your creative potential is indeed huge!
