Painting walls with geometric shapes

Geometric paintings on the walls: new trend

L’home decor, like everything, it follows the fashions of the moment and the new trends wink at geometric shapes. Green light, therefore, to squares, hexagons, triangles, diamond shapes, as well as polka dots, but also designs of various kinds with a geometric base.

An ideal solution for all rooms in the house, obviously with the right combinations. So here’s how to make one painting walls with geometric shapes.

Geometric paintings: the choice of color

The first thing to evaluate to achieve geometric paintings on the walls is the choice of color. You can choose a single shade to be repeated almost everywhere, or use several gradations of the same color, or even complementary colors.

But it can also be used playing with completely different colors.

The effect will be one of movement, joy but also elegance.

Geometric decorations of this type, among other things, do not require a large amount of furniture, as it is already able to furnish the room by itself, giving the environment character and personality.

The choice of colors will of course also depend on which room you want to paint: the children’s rooms they could be more allegre, with bright or magnetic paints, while one room it will require something more sober and Elegant.

The chromatic choices are therefore fundamental in creating geometric decorations, and of course they will go well with the rest of the furniture.

Light and color choice

Also there ambient brightness it is a variable not to be overlooked.

In a dimly lit environment they will inevitably have more lively colors or in any case light colors, while in a brighter environment you can also opt for dark and deep colors without risking darkening the room.

In general, however, there are some colors that are particularly recommended based on the type of room.

Warm colors and geometric shapes for walls
For example in kitchen it is better to choose some cheerful colors and warm such as red, yellow, orange. Adequate colors also in the dining room, where however it would be better to work only on one wall leaving the others in a neutral color.

Turning to living room, where you spend moments of relax, here it is better to focus on relaxing colors, such as cream or sand, but also antique pink or lilac.

In bedroom of course, colors that reconcile relaxation, such as shades, are better pastel. Green light therefore to blues, pinks and greens.

The choice of geometries

The choice of types of geometric decorations it is another fundamental step to take before starting work. You may have reasons and regular or irregular.

It must be consistent, without senseless combinations that would only lead to confusion. You have to choose a single geometric figure and work with it.

Of course, to accomplish geometric paintings on the walls it must be taken into account that the complexity of the design can vary greatly depending on what you choose to do.

It will therefore be necessary to be very precise to carry out a job perfectly done.

Even the combinations they must have consistency: if, for example, you opt for a discreet background color, the figures can have strong colors, while if the background color is strong, figures and furnishing objects must have soft nuances.

The final image must be balanced.

Geometric paintings on the walls: preliminary phase

Before starting work it will be necessary to design what the final result should be. The work must therefore be planned on paper, drawing on a sheet what will then appear on the wall, with all the geometric decorations of the case.

House painting material
At this point you will have to prepare the materials in order to have them available:

  • the colors chosen;
  • rolls of removable adhesive tape;
  • a long line;
  • the brushes;
  • plastic sheets to cover everything;
  • a ladder;
  • some scissors.

How to proceed in the next steps

Once you have chosen the color, as well as the design you want to make, you can start the work. First it will be necessary to cover the floor and everything you want to protect with the appropriate plastic sheets, fixing them well with tape so that they do not move.

The wall on which you want to intervene must be cleaned with care, removing dust, humidity and any dirt that could affect the final result

To get one geometric painting, it will therefore be necessary to transfer the drawing made on the sheet to the wall, using the adhesive paper tape.

It must be applied with great care so as not to create wrinkles and folds.
You can then start the drafting of the color.

Painting techniques

There are different techniques that can be used to create geometric paintings on the walls, and they vary according to the final effect you want to obtain.

The method more classic of drafting to get a geometric painting consists in using a roller, which allows you to work quickly and easily.

The color must always be applied in the same direction. The brush it works in much the same way. After applying the first coat, the paint must be allowed to dry before passing the second.

Sponging on the walls
There are also alternative methods to obtain particular effects.

One of these is the spatula which allows you to get a pretty result scenographic even if simple. In this case, after applying the base, a second coat must be applied before the first dries.

In this way the two paints will mix, creating particular effects.

A similar solution is obtained using the sponge: after having applied a coat of color it will be dabbed using the sponge soaked with another color, in order to create a particular effect on the walls.

Geometric paintings on the walls: not just straight lines

Geometric figures are not just made of line right: in fact, there are also curved lines and circles. so if you want to get a more particular result, you can simply use stencil, choosing them in the shapes you like best: circles, ellipses, ovals.

DIY home painting
In this case to get one geometric painting just create a stencil template and use it on the wall as you prefer.
