Overview Of Faux/Decorative Paint Finishes
For your Home Or Office
Faux paint finishes look great on walls, trim, ceilings, fireplaces, and pretty munh anything including furniture.
To put it in simple terms, faux painting on walls looks at first like wallpaper. If you look a little closer, you will see that what your looking at is very cool. There are no seams that will ever come loose. There is a non repeating pattern.
You are looking at walls that are one of a kind!
In all of the world, there are no other walls exactly like these because they created by human hands.
You are looking at paint!
It's durable, It's washable, not too pricey, and It's beautiful too!
This painted on finish will never need to be removed. Stripping off wallpaper is a terrible mess and the walls are usually damaged in the process. With this approach to decorating, you just paint over the walls when you are ready to change the room again.
Faux paint finishes can be rendered in any color or combination of colors. Finish types can be flat, eggshell, satin, semi loss, full gloss. or combinations of these.
These kind of paint finishes cost only a little more then regular painting.
You get a lot of value for your dollars when you do the math on what it would cost to buy a quality wallpaper, hire a skilled person to apply it, and the cost of removing wallpaper at some point in the future.
Then there is the cost of repairing the damage done to the walls when removing wallpaper. This is paint and you just paint over it out when "or if you ever" tire of it.
This kind decorating is a good investment that adds value to your home.
These finishes make for a grate presentation if you ever decide to sell your home.

Faux finishing has been used for millennia, from cave painting to the tombs of ancient Egypt, but what we generally think of as faux finishing in the decorative arts began with plaster and stucco finishes in Mesopotamia over 5,000 years ago.
