Ideas for Painting Indoors

By Michael James

Redecorating or renovating your house is never easy and it just gets much harder and more tedious when you need to paint as well. Sloshing on one coat of paint after another can be draining if you're doing it alone and still have the whole house to think about.

And let's not even start thinking about those ceilings! However, even though you may have to stick to the same old traditional exterior paint job, it doesn't have to be the same for the interior - you could always try out some outlandish but pleasing interior painting ideas. If nothing else you'll be guaranteeing yourself comments from all those who come into your home.

By keeping the exterior painting plans to the necessary minimum, you can devote more time and more creativity to the inside. You can allow your imagination run wild with all those interior painting ideas you always wanted to implement but never got around to. And, as they say, there's no time like the present, and really, when are you going to get around to painting your house again?

Don't become alarmed though, when I'm talking about out of this world interior painting ideas I'm not saying that you should go with something that resembles a Picasso painting. I'm talking about something more along the lines of a paint job that will reflect back who you are.

So your interior painting ideas need not be anything bolder than a streak of vibrant colour on one wall, surrounded by soothing colours on the other walls. This works very well in any house and the vibrant colour that you pick out can be either soothing or primal, depending on what you want to show of yourself. You could, of course, always go to extremes and emulsion all the walls a bright vibrant shade or even mix and match different shades on different walls.

If you're doing this then you might want to think about the effect you'll have and whether you can actually live with the colour scheme. Wild and inspired interior painting ideas are all well and good, but you should always take into account whether you're going to be able to stand the sight of your newly panted walls or not next month. If you are going to have to repaint everything again, it kind of defeats the purpose.

I don't mean that you should try to restrain your creative urges or stifle your interior painting ideas. All I mean is that some of your bolder ideas, should maybe be made the subject of a trial-run elsewhere first.

Don't think of redecorating your home as something that you have to do. If you want to, you could always think of yourself as Michelangelo or Da Vinci or any of those great artists and create a stunning mural. The only requirement is that you let your great interior painting ideas become reality and that you have loads of fun while you're at it.
