2. Choose the right finishPicking the right paint finish depends on the desired amount of shine and durability. The higher the gloss, the better it will stand up to stains and cleaning. Going by this rule, use eggshell finish for bedrooms and living rooms; semi-gloss for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms; high-gloss paints to accentuate mouldings, trims, doors and wooden furniture; and flat finish for ceilings.Tip: High-gloss paint reflects light and makes imperfections in walls more noticeable. So prep your walls well before you apply this finish. Look here to see what paint finish is right for your walls
Use architectural elementsArchitectural elements such as mouldings are an effective yet subtle way to add texture to a wall. In this contemporary bedroom, the glossy coloured wall is brought to life by the linear moulding that adds an appealing visual and tactile feature.Tip: Wallpaper is an alternative to paint if you want pattern, colour and texture.Pro tip: Some special-effects paints, usually employed as water-based or translucent top coats, can be applied on a base coat to create specific effects on the wall, such as sponging, distressing, graining, trompe l’oeil, and so on.
6. This four-poster bed features a wooden base with sleek and elegant steel posts. This design is framed like a canopy but not using curtains gives the bed a clean and minimalist finish. Since metals like steel may seem a bit cold, the designer goes for a quilted headboard to soften the look without taking any extra space.Types of beds you need to know about
