How to use textured walls to elevate your interiors and create a unique, dynamic effect

In the realm of design, textured walls have emerged as a captivating trend, taking ordinary spaces to extraordinary heights by offering tonal dimension and appealing tactility. Offering a sophisticated finish, textured walls are actually quite simple to achieve at home with Resene’s innovative Paint FX range, offering virtually endless possibilities for capturing mood and transforming spaces into something truly special. These specialty paints not only create ambience but are designed with superior durability and also offer practical benefits — concealing imperfections by adding depth and movement. In fact, the presence of subtle flaws can enhance the overall effect, making it even more striking.

And while this range of paints allows you to unleash your creativity by experimenting with different colours and application techniques, the trend that seems to be prevailing at the moment is towards enhancing more neutral shades in the home, like tones of grey. Because, where a simple grey wall might make a space fall flat, tones like Resene’s Four Winds, Ted or Kinship come alive when a layer of Paint FX is applied over the top. In one simple step, a dull, two-dimensional wall is transformed into something that almost looks more like brushed steel. 

Perfect to use in spaces that require a contemporary edge, greyscale textured walls using Resene paints and Paints FX will inject a touch of industrial chic and dynamic intrigue. Simple to use, durable, versatile and creative, Resene’s most innovative range will help you create an artistic, interior masterpiece.
