‘A subtle amount of texture attracts the eye’. - Clyde Aspevig.

While interior paint can be availed in a variety of sheens and colours, to give any room a distinctively eye-catching look, you may need to add some texture to its feature or focal wall. Texturing a wall, owing to the evolution of paint feature, can be easily achieved using pre-textured paints or standard interior paint using unique application techniques and textured additives.

Texture Paint, unlike flat paint, has a slightly rough and gritty look that adds character and a rustic appeal to walls, far better than wallpapers or any type of paint finish. Thus, you must trade-in the simple paint swatches for a focal wall featuring gorgeous textures for a captivating outcome. Textured focal walls can add shadow, depth, and structure to a bedroom in a beautiful and unique way.

Industrial-inspired designs have gained popularity, where contrasting whimsical layers of texture can help accentuate the bright and rustic design of a room. Rag rolling can also be used to create a rugged appearance on a wall, just dip a rag into the paint, squeeze out the excess paint and roll it along the wall for an uneven gorgeous look.

Brick Texture –

Brick is and always will be a classic favourite texture for bedroom walls. A classic brick wall created through textured wall paint designs, add depth and dimension to a focal wall. A faux brick texture can be created by applying a brick-like pattern over the focal wall using a stencil roller, which can be dipped in thick paint and then rolled across the wall.

Marble Texture –

Italian marble or stonework stucco can create a fabulous Victorian or Mediterranean look, giving a spacious bedroom a calmer and humbler atmosphere. The result looks rich, clean, and comfortable. A Marble texture can be attained by the process of smooshing, where a glaze is applied to a wall, on which a plastic sheet is then placed before it dries. Upon removing this sheet, one can attain a marble-like pattern that is sure to catch the attention of the beholder.

Fabric Texture –

In bedrooms with a lighter all-over appearance, a highly-contrasting fabric-like textured focal wall that offers a velvety touch can bring a warm and cosy feeling in the space. Fabric texture can be attained through sponging technique, where a sponge roller soaked in the paint is dabbed or twisted onto the wall to create textured patterns.
