The living room is undeniably the heart of any home. Whether you’re enjoying family get together or entertaining guests during a party, there is no better place to congregate with family and friends than the living room. True to its name, it's the space where you and your family truly live; you watch TV, read stories, discuss family matters with the whole family, play antaakshri etc. As the focal point of the home, it’s meant to be comfortable, preferably with a nice big-screen TV.

One of the most public spaces in your home, the living room is where you invite guests. Whether you prefer a bold, vibrant vibe or something more relaxing and mellow, your living room should be as unique as you are. One simple way to inject more personality into your living room is with a simple coat of paint. Paint is a versatile medium that can do so much for your overall design.

To express exactly who you are, we recommend using the right wall texture and following it up with paint. This gives a certain definition to your walls and acts as accessory to your personality. Here are a few things to look into while looking into decorative paint techniques for living rooms.

Textured Walls

An interesting look for your living room can be a textured wall. For this, you will need to go for Birla White Textura and follow it up with textured paint. A few traditional techniques include rag rolling, stippling, and marbling to create a look with more than one colour. Adding texture designs to your wall can make your living room feel instantly more luxurious. Brick designs are also in vogue right now. But if you are going for those, make sure you have texture them well before getting to painting.

Levelled Walls

Keep a fine degree of contrast between colours for optimum results. The size of your room also matters in this case. With a smaller room, you can play with dimensions using stripes and shades. Alternatively, you can also look at a brighter shade so that light is reflected better, thereby giving an illusion of a bigger room. This option also imparts instant sophistication and creates a calming environment. For this, you will need to add a coat of Birla White WallCare Putty before the actual painting begins.

Combination Walls

Give a different touch to your living room walls with vibrant wall texture ideas combined with levelled wall paint ideas. This way, you can create an accent wall and still achieve an appealing look for your interior with wall textures.

Of course, like everything else, when it comes to interior design, the key is to create a balance. Without enough textured elements, a space can feel cold and sterile. On the other hand, one person might love a room that's bursting with textured elements, while another person finds the same room busy, or even dirty. It's all about finding the balance that you like, reflecting your personality, by finding your own spot on the wide texture spectrum.
