Sprucing up the house

The quickest renovation any homeowner can do is paint the walls. New colour throughout, or brightly featured wall can make the house feel new in no time. It's a great renovation for a relatively new inexperienced handyman, although of course there are always things you can do to make the work look cleaner, neater and more professional. As a painter I have a lot of easy hints and short cuts, that can help you to get best finish for the least effort. If you don't want to do the job yourself, professional painters have the commercial painting tools to make the job look fantastic, so you can always call one.

Three Stunning Ideas For Creating An Eye-Catching Chevron Paint Pattern In Your Home

Repainting a room is a fantastic way to quickly and easily transform it. A new paint job is also a way to create a highly personal and unique look that appeals to your taste. If you like a modern, bold, and edgy look, then combining colour and geometry with the use of a chevron pattern may be the perfect idea for your room makeover. 

A chevron pattern uses zig-zag lines in horizontal layers. The layers can be identical in height or you can use a variety of heights for a more detailed pattern. Here are three beautiful and vibrant looks that you might like to consider.

1. Mix colour with metallic effects

If you like a bit of shimmer and shine, then try adding some sparkling metallic paints into your chevron design. Gold, silver and copper are all popular choices for metallic paint and work equally well with bright colours or more subdued neutral colours. You can also use a top coat that contains metallic particles to add some sparkle to standard paint colours of your choice.

2. Add some wallpaper for pattern and contrast

Another striking look for your chevron design entails adding some strips of wallpaper to replace paint for some of the zig-zagged layers. Modern wallpaper comes in a vast array of different patterns so you can be as daring and adventurous as you like. Opting for a few different contrasting yet complementary wallpapers will really create a chevron design that is entirely individual and visually arresting.

3. Create an Ombre look

Ombre is more commonly associated with hair colour but you can create a beautiful chevron design by applying the same concept to your paint choice. The basic idea is to create a gradually changing gradient in different shades. If done correctly, the colours will seem to blend together before changing to a new shade. This can be done with multiple colours or with a single colour in a variety of lighter and darker shades.

Choosing a chevron pattern when repainting a room in your home will create an eye-catching and colourful feature. However, it involves a fair amount of skill and a very steady hand to ensure the clean, crisp lines that are needed to make this look a success. Hiring a professional painter is highly recommended unless you have a great deal of experience in interior painting. They'll be able to create an immaculate and precise effect that will look incredible.
