  5. Affordable: The manufacturing process and material of the product allows Faux Stone to be much more affordable than real stone, yet with more advantages, including the savings on labor to install the products. Installation of these products are so simple that the cost of installation is reduced significantly.

Overall, Faux Stone is more affordable as well as convenient without putting a hole in your pockets for the look that you want.

 

Accent Walls – Work Of Arts!

Painting is a great way to update a room with a great amount of impact. To add visual interest to a dull room, try just painting one wall a different color entirely.

Choosing A Wall

First things first, pick the wall that will be the focal point of the room that you’re thinking of perking up!  Great focal points are often fireplaces, a large window, or behind a bed’s headboard.  Becoming visually dramatic, an accent wall will change the mood as soon as you walk into your home.  It’s not only the latest trend, but it also allows you to give your home a mini-make over, if you’re on a budget or short on time.

Finally choosing just the right color for your work of art!

Picking colors can be fun and an artistic expression that highlights your personality. You have to take into account all of your surroundings whether it’s an interior space or an exterior space. How the light interacts with the primary surface and the secondary surfaces plays an important role, as well as, architectural features.

Make sure to apply a primer before you paint a light color over a dark color, or want to cover up a semi-gloss or gloss finish. It helps the paint to adhere and smooth out the surface to be painted. The only time you may not need to prime is if you’re painting a darker color over a matte white wall.

Choose a subtle color scheme. To make the room feel more spacious, stick with white, off-white, or very light greens, blues, or yellows for the walls. Dark colored walls, like blue or red will only make the room seem smaller and stuffier.

Use neutral colors like beige, gray, or brown for furniture, using accent pieces like throw pillows, throw blankets, accent chairs, or pieces of artwork adds color. This way, you can add color without creating a cluttered look.

It’s an inexpensive do-it-yourself project that will heighten the visual interest of your living space.
