Just as clothing with horizontal stripes can make a person look wider, striped flooring that runs from side to side, rather than following the length of a room, will stretch the apparent floor space. These broad stripes were created by alternating light, and medium-tone laminate floor tiles. Achieve a similar effect by painting existing wooden or vinyl flooring or by covering the floor with a large striped rug.
Faux painting techniques can add texture and dimension, as well as detail to your walls. These techniques work especially well in the kitchen. Faux techniques are affordable options that do not require you to hire a professional. Some popular faux painting techniques for the kitchen include stenciling, color washing and sponging.
