A striped wall pattern is a fun and exciting way to break the monotony in a room. With modern Color Wheel paint colors and some painters tape you can create a striped wall pattern that looks great and is easy to do. You will need three of your favorite coordinating Color Wheel modern paint colors for the entire project as well as painters tape, a laser level, and a tape measure. Within a couple of hours you will have a beautiful striped wall pattern that is modern and fun for any room of the home.
Striped Wall Pattern Step #1: Begin by measuring out the wall. Place a mark at 4 feet, another 3 inches above that, and another at four feet and 4 inches. You will also need to mark out areas at five feet, five and a half feet, five feet 11 inches, 7 feet, 7 feet 1 inch, 7 feet 5 inches, and 7 feet 7 inches. If there is any remaining wall above that you may continue creating line patterns all the way up or leave the remainder of the wall open.
Striped Wall Pattern Step #2: Use the laser level to create a line all the way across the wall at each level that was marked. Use painters tape to mark the area that is beamed by the laser level and continue doing this at each line that was marked. Create these lines all the way around the room and tape each one with painters tape.
Striped Wall Pattern Step #3: Determine which paint colors you will use for this modern project. Color Wheel paint colors come in hundreds of modern themes that are perfect for any room of the home. If your base color of the room is grey then you may like to use a Color Wheel paint color such as Overload which is a vibrant red tone and also Portage which is a black tone. For white walls, try using Falling Star, Kiwi, and Jauntry which are Color Wheel paint colors from the yellow and green family. Choose at least 2 if not three paint colors for this modern striped wall project.
Striped Wall Pattern Step #4: Paint each of the different colors within the marked off areas. The choice and pattern style is up to you. Choose colors that coordinate with one another and paint each stripe area its own color from the Color Wheel line or any paint line that you choose.
Striped Wall Pattern Step #5: Once walls have dried almost all the way you should remove the painter’s tape to show the stripes. Make sure that you never leave painter’s tape on the wall after the paint has completely dried as this will cause the paint to come off with the tape when you pull it.
