Putting texture on a plain wall can add a little personality to an entire room. Whether it is wave wall texture, circular wall texture, or any other type of texture you can think of, adding a little excitement to the walls in your bedroom, bathroom, or den will bring a lot of style and uniqueness to the entire room. There are several steps to deciding what type of wall texture you want and whether or not a certain wall texture is right for a particular room. There are also a lot of things to know about how to correctly apply a plaster or paint wall texture.
A wave wall texture can be done in either paint or in plaster. The plaster version of this texture goes onto the drywall and is fairly difficult to do correctly. Luckily, you will have some opportunities to correct any mistakes you may have made while the plaster is still wet. You will want to make sure that the amount of plaster you apply is not too heavy – too heavy of a layer of plaster will make the wall look bulky rather than textured. And if the plaster is too thick, the texture won’t look good once it is painted later on. Also, use the correct tools to create the wave wall texture in the plaster. A comb-like tool will make creating curves and waves in the wall easier.
If you want to do your wave wall texture in paint, you will need to pick a few different colors of paint to create the feeling of waves. Most people choose to use a variety of blues to create painted wave like look. The painting can be done over the plaster wall texture. However, keep in mind that using more than one texture on one wall can be overwhelming. Having more than one wall texture on all four walls in a room will definitely be overwhelming, and can even look tacky. So consider which type of texture you want to use before you start your wall texturing project.
