Get an overview of your project
The first step is to think about your project, decide what you want to achieve and set yourself realistic goals. Decide what your budget will be and how much time you have to invest in the project and then consider if what you want to achieve matches up with the resources you have available. If it doesn’t you might need to adjust your goals slightly so that you are not stretching yourself both for time and investment. For instance, if you don’t have the budget to repaint all the walls in your room, you could consider just painting an accent wall, which can be just as effective in changing up any space. Once you know exactly what you want, you can start planning.
The art of painting, how you can achieve a great result with little effort

With Paintbox you can paint straight from the box, which contains everything you need for your project and our colours all work well together meaning that you can re-paint the smallest accent space and still make a huge difference to your decor. Even with a small budget, your re-decoration project is sure to be successful, especially when you utilise the tips given below.
Trick one, have the courage to use colour
Colour transitions can be difficult to achieve but can really help to define an area. You can create beautiful transitions with the help of one simple tool, painters tape. The trick to a successful transition is to create a white frame around the surfaces, separating the different colours. The first step is to paint the ceilings and corners of the wall white. You then need to create the frame by painting a strip at least 3cm wide around the wall, you can do this easily with a squared lumber. Use masking tape to block this off and paint white above the paint. Once this is dry paint the area underneath the tape with your desired colour, wait for this to dry and then pull off the painters tape to reveal your new, beautiful transition.
Trick two, marbling, the ultimate eye-catcher
You can use the marbling technique on whole walls or just on particular sections to create a truly eye-catching display. You can create a light marble display by using colours such as white, beige, light yellows, taupe and light grey, these colours work really well together when used in this technique. To create this look start with a white background and then begin to apply your chosen colours using a natural sponge. The trick is to apply spots of the colours onto the wall whilst making sure the white background is still visible. For a natural result, ensure all the colours are evenly distributed.
Trick three, White isn’t always boring
Why not opt for the elegance of the sandstone look and introduce colour with furnishings. White walls can create a unique living environment, especially when painted directly onto plaster as opposed to onto wallpaper as the plaster shows up through the paint. White walls can upset the balance so much that it removes the calm and therefore demands attention, especially when you also introduce colourful furnishings. With a larger budget, you can enhance this look even more by pre-treating the wall with structural plaster.
Trick four, size matters
