Ideas For Painting Stunning Stripes


Colorful wall patterns always have a way of bringing tons of personality into a space.   Although it takes a little patience, stripes are one of the easiest patterns to paint, and the results can be simply stunning.




Vertical stripes will make a room’s ceiling appear higher while horizontal stripes will visually widen a room.  Horizontal lines will also give your space a more contemporary feel.

If ‘high-energy’ is what you want, it’s OK to use several colors.  The result could be electrifying, so you may want to reserve this treatment for one focal wall.


Of course, painting the walls is not the only way to bring colorful stripes into your space.  You can also look for a great area rug, furniture pieces or lighting fixtures.
