Have You Ever Considered Painting Wall Stripes? Take a Look at This Berkeley Project

Have You Ever Considered Painting Wall Stripes? Take a Look at This Berkeley Project

There’s no denying that your interior paint color options are nearly endless. If you need proof, head down to your local paint supplier and peruse, say, blue paint. You’ll find a few miles’ worth of paint squares, representing nearly every inch of the blue spectrum. And then, of course, there is the option of custom color mixing as well!

As much fun as exploring these options can be, sometimes a wall calls for something a little more unique and specialized than just one solid color.

How about stripes?

Should You Paint Stripes On Your Walls?

They’re not just stylish, but actually serve a purpose too.

Horizontal stripes can visually stretch a wall, making the room feel deeper and larger than it really is. In fact, interior paint can be used to achieve a number of optical illusions like this, maximizing the potential of the space being painted.

You can also paint vertical stripes that tend to push the ceiling upward, creating a sense of height.

Another benefit of painting wall stripes is the fact that they can be dressed up or down, depending on your needs and goals. In a kid’s room, a bright and vibrant color scheme might do the trick, while in a formal dining space you might prefer more subdued shadow striping, for example.

PRO TIP:

Stripes are best reserved for one accent wall, not for every wall in the room. This can be addressed on a case by case basis, but in general stripes on every wall creates more of a circus tent vibe than a stylish statement piece.

Painting Wall Stripes in Berkeley

In this case we were asked to paint stripes in the kids’ room. The colors are just beautiful, allowing for not only a visually interesting wall, but a fun, playful atmosphere overall.

What did the steps include?

  • First, we skim coated the wall. This technique creates a perfectly smooth surface (when done skillfully), covering over any existing blemishes.

  • We painted the lighter color (First Snowfall, by Benjamin Moore).

  • Tape was carefully applied to designate the stripes.

  • Blue Heather, also by Benjamin Moore, was used for the darker alternate color.

The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”
