Do you want interior walls that reflect more than just a splash of color? You can paint a design that works as an art piece, invites conversation, or something that is completely different from anything you have seen so far.

There are tens of thousands of colors to choose from for your walls, but did you know that paint can also be improved dramatically with texture? Sure, a yellow or caramel colored wall looks amazing, but once blended with some painting technique such as faux, the room can take on a whole new dimension.

Below are some of the most popular interior painting ideas that can help your dreams come true:

One of the greatest beauties and advantages of using textures is that you can add energy into your space or spark a mood without breaking your bank account because it is a great alternative to buying new flooring, changing out the furnishing, and so on.

Textured wall paneling is a good way to go! They can be attached to any wall and then simply painted over. Anyhow, wall panels with bold textures are a nice choice for interior walls.


An ombre wall is great as it adds a gradient color that can easily transform your room and make your walls look like water, sunrise, or even animal fur. Ombre gained huge momentum for a reason – popping up on everything ranging from art pieces to clothing to walls, and everything in between – truly infiltrating the entire design world.

If you find it difficult to choose just one single color, then go for the entire rainbow. You can opt for a smaller section or simply paint your entire wall in stripes of rainbow. It doesn’t have to be the exact color combination found in rainbows so mix whatever works for you best.


Many texture techniques can be applied on interior walls, including painting patterns, murals, or maybe even trompe l’oeil. But what is a trompe l’oeil? It is a specific artistic technique that implies painting scenes and realistic images to give illusion to textures. This is great if you want to give your room character, depth, or to dramatically change the mood of the room.


Your walls can become far more exciting when you use texture. Aside from choosing the right design style, there is always one or more textures that might fit perfectly in your place. And guess what? This will help you give your place a makeover without breaking your budget.

So if you feel like your design and interior walls are outdated and need refreshing, try some of our tips.
