Walls in different colors

Young people often want a room in bright colors. To avoid visual clutter, painting just one wall a bright color can be a good option. The other walls can then be designed in muted, contrasting colors.

The learning area in particular should be kept in muted colors to enable more concentrated work and learning.

Two-tone walls

Walls with colored plinths appear very balanced. The dividing line between the different colors can be neatly designed with adhesive tape. Always peel off the tape while the paint is still wet.

Alternatively, more impressive patterns can be designed, such as a wall divided diagonally by two colors.

Decorative stripes and color patterns

A brightly colored stripe running around the center of the wall can be a good means of visually livening up a room. Like the colored wall plinth, it is made using two strips of adhesive tape.

Wall decorations and ornaments

Wall tattoos have the advantage that they can also be removed again. A design with painting stencils or stencil patterns can also be interesting.

Your own or someone else's drawings can easily be transferred to a wall on a larger scale using the so-called grid technique and then executed with poster colors.

The template is transferred to checkered paper or covered with a transparent film with the smallest possible grid print. A grid is also drawn on the wall with thin pencil lines, enlarged accordingly. The contents of the individual boxes can then easily be copied.

The pencil grid can then easily be made invisible again with a fine brush and the original wall paint. Thin pencil lines can then be easily erased.

Tips & Tricks If darker colors are to be painted over with lighter ones when redesigning, several layers of dispersion must be applied to the wall. Painting over with white, highly opaque dispersion before applying the actual color of your choice is also an option.
