Interior Walls with Texture

There are millions of colors to choose from for your interior walls, but paint can also be enhanced dramatically with texture. Sure, a caramel tan colored wall may look nice, but once combined with a faux painting technique or a textured wall panel added behind it, the room will take on a whole new dimension! Textured walls have become a growing trend because they can take on a myriad of aesthetics from fine linen to bold geometric forms.

Go bold with texture: One of the beauties of using textures is the ability to spark a mood or drama in a space without having to change out the furnishings, flooring, and architectural details. Textured wall paneling are sold in sheets that can be attached to the wall, and then painted over. Several wall panel varieties come in different colors, or many home owners prefer to leave them white.

Give the illusion of texture: While touchable textures are nice, often a more subdued look is desired in a room to make the walls blend in with the decor as opposed to compete with them. Faux finishing is a technique by which different paint colors and glazes are used to create walls that appear to be textured with varying hues and highlights.

Break up a monochrome room with texture: If you prefer monochromatic interiors that have little color, texture can be a nice way to break up the eye without getting bored. Fabrics, wall panels, and even joint compound can be used to apply texture to the wall, but can be left monochromatic.
