It’s February, the month of love. And whether or not you’re a fan of Valentine’s Day, this month it’s hard to get away from one specific color – red. So since we’re on the topic of cupid and hearts, it’s worth an ask. Is there ever a place for red paint in your home?
For some, the thought of garish red walls will warrant an automatic, “No, thank you!” But we’d like to create an argument for it. Depending on your design style and the goals you have for your space, you may find that a red paint job is worth considering after all! Here are 5 places where we’ve seen red paint create an inspired look that’s worth emulating.
Love the look of one of the spaces you see below? Reach out to our Protek Professional Painting Services team! We’d love to help you bring a vision like one of these to life in your home!
Make a statement with your entryway.
When was the last time you infused some new life into your entryway? This is the first space your guests see when they enter your home, so it’s definitely worth putting a little time and attention into. A bright pop of red paint might be just the thing to add some much needed warmth and welcome to your space.
Go bright and bold in your bedroom
Your bedroom should be all about calm and rest – a place where you can kick your feet up and get away from the world for a while. But that doesn’t always have to mean blue and green shades! Try one of these warm reddish hues on your next bedroom project instead.
Use red paint as an accent wall
Afraid to go all-in with your red paint? An accent wall in your living space can be a great way to add interest and variety without making a huge commitment. From bright, bold reds to quiet, richer hues, you really can’t go wrong with this approach.
Add some fun to your child’s space
Do you have little ones at home? Red might be the perfect color to add fun and personality to their rooms. We like this road-inspired theme for boys and this half wall paint job for boys and girls. Don’t be afraid to get creative and let your little ones get involved too!
Small room, big impact
Whether it’s a dining nook or your master bath, sometimes red paint can be used to make a big impact in your smallest rooms! Don’t rule it out next time you have a smaller paint job on your hands.
