2. Stripes

One of the easiest and most effective DIY ideas for home wall painting is vertical or horizontal stripes. These can be created easily by segmenting your wall into lined sections with the help of poster tape. Once this is done, you can paint the segments with different colors. When planning to achieve contrast with light-colored wall paints, try to keep stripes thin and subtle. For brighter colors, keep thick and bold stripes for the visual intrigue. When you want to use a single color throughout, you can use designs such as Strié.

3. Checkerboard

The advanced version of ‘Stripes’ discussed above is called the Checkerboard or Harlequin. It involves creating different quadrilateral patterns such as squares, rectangles or rhombuses with poster tape. Even non-creatives can do this as it involves directly pasting the poster tape on the wall and then painting with wall paints in the open space. Once painted, the tape can be removed to reveal a mesmerizing pattern.
