How to get your home painted black – and more –
By now, you’ve probably heard of the “black house interior” trend, which sees homeowners plastering their homes with black paint, or painting the inside walls, floors and ceilings black.
“It’s a great idea to make your home a little bit darker and more exclusive,” said Heather Cawthorne, a home decorator who is based in Bristol, UK.
“There are a lot of beautiful houses out there that have been designed to make their homes a little more exclusive, so it makes a really nice touch to the look of your home.”
However, black paint may be less common than it once was, and some experts are concerned that it’s still not always the best option for homeowners.
In this example, Heather Cawsons house is painted in “black” to make it stand out from its surrounding neighbours.
A home decorators website, Home Paint Basics, states that “black paint is less effective than other paints because it absorbs more water and can take longer to dry.”
This is where the “white house” can come in handy.
Using “white paint” in conjunction with “black wall paint” is also very effective, but does add a few extra costs.
According to Heather, “the most common white wall paint in the UK is a mix of acrylics, acrylic solvents and acrylic lacquer.”
If you want to get the best value for money, you can buy a white wall primer, which is usually the cheapest option, and apply it to the wall with an acrylic brush.
For the more expensive “white wall paint”, a combination of acrylic and acrylic solver is preferred.
Cawthorps suggested that you choose a paint with an “average” value of £3, so that the paint can be applied with the highest quality paint and solver possible.
It’s worth noting that white paint is also often used to “bake” your home, which means it can take up to a week to fully dry.
What do you do if you need to paint your house black?
There are several options to consider when painting your home black, and there are a few tips that can help you make the most of them.
If you’re planning to paint a white home, you’ll need to look at what other options are available, and if it’s cheaper than buying a “white” home.
Here’s what you need know about “white home paint” and what you can expect when it comes to painting your own home.
What is “white”?
White is an “alternative” to black paint.
The word “white”, which refers to the white or clear pigment in the paint, is commonly used in reference to white materials.
It is used to describe materials which are white in colour, but which have been treated with various chemicals to produce a white colour.
White paint can also be applied to white or opaque materials to create a colour that’s almost opaque.
White paint is a form of paint, and can be mixed with other paints and paints to create new paint types.
Black and white paint are the only two colours that can be painted with white.
How do you paint your home?
A common mistake is to paint all the white surfaces of your house in black paint to make the house appear more exclusive.
This can make the interior more difficult to access and the house look darker and less exclusive.
You can use a “black room” to create your own unique space, or you can paint it in a similar manner to the kitchen.
“I think people get a bit confused about what’s meant by ‘black’ and ‘white’,” said Heather.
“Black is an alternative term that’s used to refer to a very specific colour, while white is a more general term that refers to any white colour.”
If you choose to paint “black”, you may also need to consider how much of the home’s interior is covered by the paint.
“If you paint it all the way around, you won’t get the most out of it,” Heather explained.
“It won’t be as interesting to the eyes as a white house.”
White paint may take a while to dry, so you may want to check the wall regularly to see if it has been painted in the last few weeks.
“It might take up the entire wall, which isn’t very convenient,” Heather said.
“You might need to do it every few weeks to make sure it’s really dry.”
If the wall hasn’t been painted recently, or if it is in good condition, you might want to consider putting some “white-up” on the wall in order to “keep the house cleaner and more ‘black’.”
“You can also use ‘white-down’ or ‘white up’ to create an even more exclusive space,” Heather continued.
