Most of you probably know drywall as a trusted material used to create flat and functional interior walls and ceilings. However, we bet many of you didn’t know it is now used for more aesthetic purposes. Design Options with Drywall: Creative ways to use drywall in your home or commercial space
It might surprise you to learn that drywall is now increasingly used as a design element in homes and commercial spaces around the world. For many designers, drywall is now a go-to material when they want to create versatile and cost-effective designs.
Want to know how you can use drywall to transform your home? Read on to learn how you can achieve this by texturing, painting and using drywall as a design element that will light up your living space!
Texturing with Drywall
There are many ways to enhance the visual appeal and cosiness of a room, but using texturing methods on drywall is one we bet you didn’t know about. The truth is, you can use this cost-effective material alongside various texturing methods to create unique designs and textures. One of the easiest is to purchase and apply textured paint. Alternatively, you get even more creative by using a trowel or brush to apply drywall compound in a design of your choosing.
While you can use drywall in any room, we believe it is ideal for a child’s bedroom or playroom. You can use stencils or templates to create repeating patterns on the walls and ceilings.
Most of you will have seen drywall before, I mean, who hasn’t? But have you ever seen it painted anything other than a neutral colour? We’re talking about your whites, off-whites, greys, and all the other colours you’d expect to see in places such as a doctor’s waiting room.
Those days are long gone for drywall, or so it seems. Designers the world over have begun increasingly using painted drywall as part of their exciting interior designs. We’re talking bold colours and adventurous designs that really help to add creativity to a living space.
The great thing is, you can do it as well and without breaking the bank. Why not get your creative juices going to see what you come up with? You could experiment with bold colour choices on separate walls, go all abstract, or perhaps use different shades of the same colour to create an ombré effect.
Here’s a big tip the next time you go shopping for drywall. As you pick up your drywall screws and metal stud partitions, don’t forget to grab some brightly coloured paint and some drywall compound. Your wall is no longer going to be a boring neutral colour. Instead, you’re going to take it home and get creative. We reckon you might just come up with something fabulous (interior designer speak, apparently).
