Paint can go a long way when it comes to giving your home a new style and best of all, it’s a very cost-effective solution that can bring great results!

These last few weeks we’ve explored five things you wouldn’t normally think to paint, but can make a huge difference in your home.

 

PAINTING THE FLOOR

Don’t be afraid to paint your floors!

If you don’t have a budget to replace your floors right now, why not try painting them fully or with a pattern, to mix things up. You’ll be surprised how fresh your space will look with a little bit of paint…on the floor!

PAINTING THE CEILING

NO hard labour and lots of $$$ needed!
You don’t need to break down walls to make a room feel bigger or more intimate.

If you want to make a tight space seem larger and airier, paint the ceiling a lighter version of the hue painted on the room’s walls or simply white.

Want to establish a more intimate space, instead? Paint the ceiling a darker colour, and create the illusion of a lower ceiling.

Which one is your favourite?

PAINTING YOUR RADIATOR

Have you tried anything and everything to blend in that old radiator but nothing worked? Why not make it stand out instead!

In many cases, it can make more sense to paint your radiator than replace it with a shiny new designer one (You save $$$ and have the style you want).

But there are a couple of things you should know before getting started, have a look at our blog post PAINTING YOUR RADIATOR!

PAINTING BRICK

If your brick wall or fireplace is starting to look dingy, dirty and dated, why not to give it a fresh look with some paint?

You’ll love this new cleaner, and more even finish in your room!

PAINTING ACCENT WALLS

If you want to spice things up in a boxy room, paint a focal wall to create a fresh new look with minimal cost and effort.

You can keep it simple or get creative like in some of these inspiration photos below.
