How to Make Your Painting Pop with Accent Paint Colors

When most of us think of interior painting, we tend to think about having to paint an entire room. But just a small amount of accent paint color can inject creative accents into your home decor and spice up your home’s interior.

You can use paint color to give a room style and personality in much the same way an interior decorator would add new furniture or window treatments to lift a room. By simply adding an accent color to a chosen wall or trim, you can brighten the entire space, without the need to repaint an entire room.

For starters, try painting a single wall in a color that compliments or contrasts the other walls in the room. You may also want to try painting the window frames and the woodwork a stunning interior accent paint color that no one would expect to see.

You don’t have to stop with the walls or woodwork. Try painting your fireplace a unique color, or maybe that curved archway could use a new color. Painting the back of your bookshelves a different color than the front, or painting the doors of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets a different color than the frames is a great way to liven up any color scheme. You can also liven up your home decor by painting furniture, picture frames, or flower pots an eye catching color.

If you decide to use an accent paint color on several items or surfaces, you may be revealing that you have a master plan to your color scheme. On the contrary, if you decide to use an accent color on just one item, you may be showing that you have not thought through your color scheme and your room may have a more random appearance.

Focusing on small scale interior painting projects can take less time and money than if you decide to paint an entire room, which could end up being quite costly. If you happen to be on a budget or have time constraints, try tackling a small painting project first.

Whichever way you decide to go, choosing a top quality 100% acrylic interior paint can help your painting project go smoother and faster. These paints adhere to almost any surface, are easy to work with, help hide the existing color you want to paint over, and require fewer coats to complete your project.
