100+ Interior Painting Ideas

Sometimes you want a new look for a room but your budget is limited to paint?  Am I right?  Have you been there?  Or if you are there right now, I thought it would be fun to look at a round up of creative painting ideas, and when I say creative, some are on the crazy side but SO cool!  These ideas may not be right for every single room in your house, in fact, I would use these ideas sparingly so you don’t get overloaded, but there are definitely some great ideas for using paint around… so here you go!

P.S. The great thing is, if you have a decent base color a lot of these ideas can be accomplished with just a pint or I daresay a sample sized paint purchase on top of that original paint color, so that sounds pretty budget friendly to me.

Also, some of these ideas might be wallpaper or some other type of surface, but I think the idea could be done in paint which is why I shared those images. Enjoy!

 Striped Walls

Grab your painter’s tape and get started! Stripes offer a classic look that adds interest instantly. Go bold with high contrast colors or more subtle with variations on the same color.
