Small spaces in the home don’t often get the love that they deserve. They often get forgotten or taken for granted in the design process more so when the budget is an issue. However, do you know that a little paint can easily transform the small spaces in your home? Read on below to find out how you can use paint to create a big impact in your home! With a little luck, you may be able to pull off the home improvement projects below in just a weekend!
Give Your Hall Bath or Powder Room a New Look
The powder room or hall bath can be easily forgotten because it is the least used room in a house with multiple bathrooms. You can give it a new life by painting one of the walls an accent colour or choosing to paint only the lower half of the walls with the colour of your liking. If you’re not sure what paint colour to use, take a quick look at the nearest room in the house and use the paint that is closest to that room’s accent colour.
First impressions count a lot and if you want to create the best first impression, you should start with your entryway. Paint your entryway so that it creates a lasting statement that visitors will remember. You can do this by choosing a darker colour than the room next to it for contrast or by painting one of the walls a bright or dark hue for more drama.
Accent for the Kitchen
If you have spaces between cabinets, appliances, or backsplash, painting it a bold colour can instantly change the feel and look in your kitchen giving it more dimension.
Bookshelf and Open Shelving Rehab
Bookshelves and open shelving need not be boring. By painting the inside a contrasting colour, you’ll give it more depth as well as add an interesting pop of colour in the room in a subtle way.
Closet Dress Up
A fresh coat of paint on the walls and shelving of your closet can significantly brighten the space and make your clothes stand out. If space permits, designating a closet wall as an accent wall can work too.
Laundry Room Face Lift
Your laundry room need not look drab. You can paint it your favourite color or perhaps use a bright paint colour and stripe it with white for a more toned-down effect. By doing so, not only will you give your laundry room a face lift but you might also end up enjoying laundry more!
Accent Wall Magic
We’ve mentioned designating an accent wall quite a few times in this post, but it really is one of the easiest and safest way to create a big impact in any room of the home using only paint. The wall behind the bed or sofa is often the best bet. Don’t forget to add artwork or your favorite print once you’re done!
