A fresh coat of paint can completely change the look and feel of a room, making it feel new and updated.  Updating the interior paint of a home can also increase its value, making it more appealing to potential buyers.

Here are ten interior painting ideas — of course paint is very personal!

  1. Use a neutral color palette: Neutral colors can create a calm and relaxing atmosphere in a home.
  2. Use an accent wall: Painting one wall in a room a different color can add visual interest.
  3. Use a bold color for a statement room: A bold color can make a room stand out and be a focal point of the home.
  4. Use a monochromatic color scheme: Using different shades of the same color can create a cohesive and sophisticated look.
  5. Use contrasting colors: Using contrasting colors can create a dynamic and visually striking look.
  6. Use a two-tone effect: Painting the upper and lower halves of a wall different colors can add depth and interest to a room.
  7. Use a ombre effect: Gradually blending one color into another can create a unique and modern look.
  8. Use a color blocking technique: Using different colors to create a geometric pattern can add a fun and playful touch to a room.
  9. Use a paint technique like sponging, ragging, or color washing: These techniques can add texture and depth to a room.
  10. Use a high-gloss paint: High-gloss paint can add a modern and sleek look to a room.
