Vertical Striped Walls – Post 50

March 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Striped walls are a quick way to add drama and excitement to a room. Vertical stripes elongate a room and make the ceiling appear higher. The colors you choose will result in different moods; stripes using monotone colors are always a safe choice. Dark colors will make the room smaller and grab a lot of attention. Pastel stripes are elegant and open up a space. Stripes that alternate between a matte finish and a gloss finish of the same color is the most subtle, yet the most interesting and unexpected. Avoid highly contrasting colors as they can be very dominating and jarring. If you fear you will grow tired of stripes there is no need to worry, as paint is the easiest change to make.
