House painting can really freshen up your home and change its look in an instant, especially if you go with a quality Houston painting company.
Even with regular painting there are a lot of different choices and possibilities. One is the finish of the paint used, which basically is how shiny it will look. A flat or matte finish has almost no shine to it as it mostly diffuses light, while satin has a definite sheen. A popular choice these days for walls is eggshell, which is somewhere in between matte and satin. Glossy paints are more suited for woodwork. By going with bolder solid colors, or varying color from room to room, your home’s character can be greatly enhanced.
Faux painting has the look of a textured or a contoured surface, but this is achieved purely with the painting technique. Surfaces often mimicked include natural stone, marble, and even wood. Faux painting may also be used to create a textured look that doesn’t mimic any material in particular, but tries to create a mood or effect. Rag painting, which literally uses bunched-up rags to create a pattern, is an example of this. Faux painting is a good deal more difficult that regular painting, which itself requires a lot more skill to look right. Faux painting is often used on walls, and sometimes furniture. Faux painting on a ceiling is possible, though less commonplace.
Textured painting involves using additives to make a surface rough. The degree of texture can be varied. The lightest texture is like painting with a thick paint leaving some features you can feel. It is similar to what you see on rough oil paintings. Sand textures and knockdown texture create more undulations. The texture pattern can be seemingly random, or repeating, with scallop designs being one of the best known. An advantage of textured painting is that it is more forgiving of the finish of the underlying plaster or drywall by hiding defects more easily. The most extreme is popcorn texture, which creates a highly uneven rough surface that is very good at dampening sound. It is most often used on ceilings.
Patterns and Murals
Patterns and murals transform your walls and surfaces into artworks in their own right. The possibilities here are endless, from simple patterns to intricate stenciled designs and fully fledged murals. If you want your home to really stand out, this is one way to do it.
