3 Painting Tips for Open Concept Living

Open concept living has continued to grow in popularity, and it is easy to see why. An open floor plan is a great way to bring natural flow to your home and tie multiple rooms together. If your home embraces open concept living, CertaPro Painters® of Fenton-Waterford would love to help you renovate your space with a few new paint colors. Below are a few of our professional tips for refreshing these unique spaces.

Create Defined Spaces With Different Paint Colors

open living spaceOne of the reasons many homeowners enjoy open concept living is because you can tie together the two primary entertainment rooms of your home, your living and dining rooms. While your natural instinct may be to paint the entire area one solid color, that may not be the best game plan.

You will want to consider adding a few complementary colors to your open living space for the best results. For example, you could have your interior walls painted a neutral light gray and have your trim painted with a pop of white. You can add dimension to your space by choosing a third color option for kitchen cabinets, or your island if you have one (like deep navy). If this seems like too much information, don’t worry. We provide each of our clients with a free color consultation. It is our goal to keep each painting service as stress free as possible for you.

Add Texture With Patterned Wallpaper

A stunning way to add separation or texture to an open concept living space is with wallpaper. There are so many patterns on the market today that you are sure to find one that will fit perfectly with the overall decor and theme of your Fenton-Waterford home. Wallpaper can also be utilized as an accent wall to continue to define your open concept spaces.

Add a Painted Accent Wall

If you have a specific wall where you would like to showcase unique art pieces or furniture, adding an accent wall inside your home is a great idea. This is one space where you can go bold in terms of color without consequence. A few colors that look great on an accent wall are navy, rose, and even black if you are feeling dramatic.

These are just a few of the many ways that our painting contractors can help you update the open living spaces at your home in the Fenton-Waterford community. Fill out our online form to request a free estimate on your next residential painting service.
