Half Painted Walls

Painted Feature Walls are back but with a little more edge! Half Painted Walls are the new thing, are easy to create and will transform your space instantly. The best part is that you don't have to spend a fortune to create Half Painted Walls and anyone can do it! All you need is some painters tape, tape measure, pencil, some coloured paint, paint brush & roller and then you're all good to go to create your Half Painted Feature Wall. And you can still add some of your creativity and personal touch into this type of feature wall by the choice of design and colour scheme. Half Painted Walls are perfect for those that want to add some colour to your space but are too afraid to paint either all walls or one wall a bold colour.  Check out these impressive ideas in how you can quite easily add Half Painted Walls to your space.

Tip: If you don't want to be too bold then opt for a softer contrasting paint colour for your Half Painted Walls and only paint a small strip or section of the wall in the contrasting colour.  If you are wanting to keep things really subtle then go for monchromatic colours for your Half Painted Walls and choose the contrasting colour two shades darker than the main wall colour.  If symmetry or clean lines aren't your thing, then fade the contrasting colour with brush or roller marks to really catch the eye and create that real raw industrial feel. And instead of creating Half Painted Walls with just paint, play around with textures i.e. brick, concreate, metal, timber, wallpaper and create a wall with half paint and half texture.  If you really want to set your space apart from the rest have fun with your Half Painted Walls and colour block any architraves, doors etc the same colour as the contrasting colour in that area, so it looks like your room has been splashed with paint.  The options are really endless when it comes to Half Painted Walls!
