Another wall design idea that can breathe new life to dull walls is geometric patterned walls. Clean and crisp with character, you can inject a modern feel into work and study spaces by playing with geometry.

How to get the look: Stick the masking tape to the chosen wall in the desired geometric pattern. Next, paint your wall with your choice of paint.

Striped Pattern

Check out the above picture to get all the inspiration you need – It spells striped sophistication! You can create a charming and comfortable living room with this timeless pattern on the walls.

How to get the look: All you need is a small paintbrush, masking tape, roller and your chosen paint. Apply a coat of background paint to your wall, allowing it to dry for at least 48 hours. Measure the width of the wall to create vertical stripes. Divide the measurement by the number of stripes to figure the width of each. Using a pencil and a measuring tape, mark the position of your stripes. Cover the wall with the masking tape over the pencil line. Start painting the stripes on the wall and over the edge of the tape. Once done, pull the tape off carefully, and there you have it – a clean, striped look!

You can also take a more colourful approach and go for multi-coloured stripes on the walls with classic three-colour combinations or more!

Checkerboard Pattern

Time for some Black and White inspiration! It is the perfect contender for an accent wall, just like the one seen in the above picture. You can achieve a chic living space with checker walls.

How to get the look: Determine the height and width of the wall, then divide both by the size of square you would like. Once you have determined the measurements, paint the base coat and let it dry for at least four hours. Mark the horizontal and vertical lines for square patterns. Commence from the top of the wall, measure and mark the horizontal lines as per the size of your square pattern. Do the same for your vertical lines. Once you know which squares you need to paint, apply tape on the outside of each square firmly. Finally, begin painting the squares.

Pro tip: It is best to mark the squares that will have the coordinating colour. If you are starting with white squares, mark the ones that are to be painted black, or vice-versa. 

With a mini roller, fill in the squares with your coordinating colour. Paint every other box across and down. Allow it to dry for at least four hours and then remove the tape away from the painted squares with care.
