As Debbie Travis, from the popular TV show Debbie Travis’ Painted House, says, painting a room is one of the easiest ways to transform a space. It is also one of the easiest ways to bring in color and add life to a room.
Some of the advantages of painting a room are that it is relatively inexpensive and it doesn’t take much time (compared to some of the other wall treatment options).
There are many different colors and types of paints to choose from. Some of the more popular paints used today are Benjamin Moore, Behr, Martha Stewart, Pittsburgh Paints, Pratt & Lambert and Ralph Lauren (this line has some incredible suede style paints!)
If your client wants to have their room painted but would prefer something more unique, there are a variety of decorative faux techniques that can be used to add depth, interest and beauty to a room. To create a faux finish, a water-based paint color is mixed to gether with a “faux” glaze (the ratio is normally one part paint to four parts glaze) and then the mixed glaze is applied in various ways.
