Paint-dipped walls – a colorful trend in interior décor

Choosing the color for the walls is crucial for any interior designer and home owner. Sometimes it’s more than one color you need to take into consideration. There are several options to choose from when painting walls. You could make them all look the same for a simple and cohesive look, you can choose to make one wall stand out by painting it a different color or you can make ombre walls or two-tine combinations such as in the examples following this article.

The bottom of the wall is usually the portion with the most colorful look

The walls look like they’re been dipped in paint as only the bottom area is colored, the rest usually featuring either a white or a neutral shade. The combinations of colors are numerous and so are the styles which you can adopt.

Usually, the color chosen for the bottom portion of the walls is also the accent shade

You can clearly delimitate the two colors with a trim or border but you can also let the colors so this by opting for strong contrasts. You can also choose to create a diffuse transition between the two shades and thus create an ombre wall.

Colorful wood paneling can also be an option to analyze

Paint-dipped walls can be an option for every room of your home. In the kitchen it’s a little more difficult to achieve this look because the walls are usually covered with furniture. But the bedroom, the living room, the dining room, the bathroom and the home office are better choices.
