If your interior walls are less than perfect, textured paint could be the solution. It’s often used to conceal damage in areas where it’s not possible to re-plaster or drywall.

Textured paint can also be used to achieve a wide variety of paint finishes and can even mimic other materials, from plaster to concrete, turning a soft flat surface into something that offers instant impact the moment you enter the room. There are glitter paints for a sparkly bedroom, metallic emulsions for an industrial look and suede finishes for a velvety feel. Color-wise, palettes range from dark, dramatic tones to reflective sheens and bold, vibrant shades.
