4 painting combinations for unique two-tones color
The painting of a space is definitely one of its most basic characteristics in terms of its appearance and its general atmosphere. Proper painting combinations can make a small space look bigger and a relatively dark room more pleasant and bright. It is no exaggeration to say that the right paint can easily and very quickly change, almost immediately we would say, a space. It is no coincidence that it is considered one of the most basic but also the most necessary forms of renovation. There is no way to do some renovation and not change the painting of the space.
In general, most people prefer the monochrome in the painting since it is a classic but also relatively “safe” choice, which in general everyone likes. Now, however, the two-tone color seems to be gaining more and more ground and is considered by many to be the top trend when it comes to interior painting. Painting combinations such as white and gray, white and light blue or even gray with brown or beige become the favorites of many decorators and homeowners.
It may seem strange to you, but choosing the right painting combination is relatively easy. The difficult thing is to use these colors correctly to have a perfect aesthetic result. So let’s look at some modern ways to make really striking color combinations.
1. Change color just below the ceiling
When we think of two colors and painting combinations, surely the first image that comes to mind is the separation of colors in the middle, either horizontally or vertically. A very modern and very practical trend, however, suggests just the opposite. So according to many decorators, when combining colors it is better to cover the walls almost completely with one color. To be precise, you should reach about 30 points before the point where the wall meets the ceiling. Then you will paint the ceiling and the rest of the wall with the second color. This style results in the room gaining height, so it is ideal for small rooms.
2. Horizontal or vertical painting combinations
The truth is that horizontal or vertical separation is not as simple a task as it seems. You need to be able to draw perfect straight lines but also take protection measures with paper tapes and other materials to keep the colors completely separate. The whole process is so complicated that many start it on their own, but end up trusting it to Montclair Painting experts for perfect results, without the hassle.

3. Irregular painting combinations
One of the top and most modern trends is the irregular painting combinations. Just paint your wall one color and then paint over the other, without holding lines, etc. Of course it’s good to have some uniformity in the percentage of the wall covered by each color, you just do not need to be educated with straight etc. The result is very artistic, unique and very trendy. Your home will definitely be a topic of discussion.
4. Paint a single wall
There is no need to do two colors on all the walls of a space. You can paint most walls one color and apply two or two to one. Why do this? The answer is simple: why do you want to look at these walls? In other words, these walls should have something you want your guests to see, like say a fireplace. It can also be the wall that is closest to the dining room etc.
