Popular Interior Wall Features [DIY]

Interior painting and home painting play a huge role in what makes your house unique and catered to your liking.

Having a professional painter help decide what would look best in the space you have will really make your home stand out against others.

There are, however, some simple features you can add to your walls to increase the value of your home and make it pop.

Crown Molding

Crown molding is made out of a decorative molding and installed at the top of an interior wall. It makes the wall have more dimension and appear more high-end. Crown molding can also go on the tops of doors and will slightly protrude out.

Trim

Adding trim to doorways or hallways will help make the area appear more upgraded. A simple, white trim around the walkway will upscale any area.

This may sound like it’s going to be difficult to achieve yourself and that a professional would need to be hired – but it’s not! It is a simple D-I-Y project that anyone can handle. You can find several tutorials on YouTube or the web.

Finishes

There are multiple types of finishes for paint on walls. Different finishes are used in different areas of the home. For instance, gloss finish will hold up better on walls that are frequently touched or that you go near often.

This type of paint finish will last longer than others, such as eggshell. One downside of a gloss finish is that it doesn’t hide imperfections well. The good news is it is very simple to touch up.

Textured Walls

Textured walls and ceilings are also a great way to make an area more up to date. Ceilings can be textured easily with the use of a paint roller, although it can be very messy.

Wainscoting is a popular decorative wall trim used to add texture to an ordinary wall and to make it appear more appealing to the eye. The height can vary depending on the look you are going for.
