Interior Painting Techniques You Can Try

Interior Design

When it’s time to update your interior painting in Powdersprings, there are several things to consider. What colors work with your existing furniture? What colors are trending for the year? This is especially important to consider if you’re thinking about putting your house on the market soon. After you’ve selected a color or colors, you might want to think about some of the techniques you can use to add more interest and texture to your walls. Here are 6 painting techniques to add variety and style to your home:


There are numerous stencils available to add a pattern to your wall. It may take more time and patience to do this, but you’ll end up with a beautiful design. Check out a Moroccan lattice trellis or chevron pattern. You could also try Damask floral designs or quatrefoils for an all over pattern designs that create warmth and visual interest.

Tissue Paper Texture

For an earthy, textured look you can use tissue paper on your walls. Paint your wall your desired color. Then, while it’s still wet, crinkle a piece of tissue paper. Lay it flat on top of the paint and smooth it out. Then, paint over it with the same color. Repeat this process until you’ve completely covered the wall. Be careful not to overlap the tissue paper too much. This technique will give your walls depth and subtle focal points.

Accent Colors

If you don’t want to paint your entire wall, you can try an accent wall. Accent walls are very popular, because they can add color to the room and draw attention to the décor that you have in there without overwhelming a space. Choose a color that works well with the furnishings in the room. Then, choose the wall that you want to paint. Make sure to tape off the sides of the wall, so you don’t accidently get paint on the edges of the neighboring walls.


Ragging can help you achieve a density shift on you wall. By using this technique, the wall will resemble faded chambray or worn leather. To create this effect, gather your rag into a ball. Dip it into the paint and dab it on the wall. Try doing a small area at a time. You could also paint the wall first with a roller than dab a wet cloth on the paint to get a similar effect.


Strie, also known as dragging, brings a linear element into a room. When done properly, your wall will seem to be sheathed in fine fabric. This painting technique works best on walls in good condition. You’ll prep your walls with a primer and apply a base coat. Then use a glaze and apply it to the wall in continuous strokes. Once the glaze is in place, use a dry brush to create patterns and texture on the wall. Continuous, fluid strokes are the key to creating a polished look.


Sponging walls gives your wall the appearance of rustic stoneware or porcelain. All you have to do is use a wet sea sponge, dab it into paint, and slowly dab it along the wall. You can also paint the wall first and then dab the sponge along the wall.

When it comes to interior painting in Powdersprings, you need to start by deciding what colors, patterns, and techniques that you’ll use to create the effect and style that you want in each room. Then, it’s important to gather the tools that you need and learn the correct techniques to make sure that the paint looks great. If you don’t have the time or equipment needed, you can always hire a professional who can provide expert knowledge to ensure that everything looks just the way you want it.
