7 Wall Texture Types and How to Create Them
Modern trends have tended toward flat, blank walls and a focus on color to bring a room together, but adding a unique wall texture to a room, or even to a single accent wall, can bring a personality to your home that a color choice simply cannot. Texturing can even help hide architectural errors, saving you costly repairs by allowing an uneven wall or ceiling to simply fade into an attractive textured pattern.
If you’re thinking that texturing is too difficult to do yourself, think again! While texturing should involve some degree of practice before deciding to texture a room in your house, the techniques used to make the following wall finishes are not as hard as you may think. Take a look below at seven popular wall texture types and the techniques behind them.
The comb texture is produced using techniques that create lines of various widths and shapes in drywall compound. This technique is often used to produce a repeated series of rainbow patterns on the drywall and is one of the more simplistic texturing techniques. This method requires drywall compound, a roller, and a drywall trowel that has evenly spaced teeth (or uneven teeth if you are going for a less organized pattern). Apply the drywall compound to the wall using the roller, then use the teeth of the trowel to gently apply lines in the wet compound. If you are aiming for perfect concentric circles, practice your artistic skills on a spare piece of drywall before attempting them on your wall. Let the texture dry for 24 hours before priming and painting.
Popcorn ceilings were a classic look in the 70s and can still be seen in countless homes today. The reason for this type of wall texture’s popularity is that it’s great at hiding imperfections and it can even help absorb sound between floors and walls. But the best part about this style of texturing? It’s easy and affordable to do yourself. All you need is the popcorn texture, an air compressor, and a hopper gun, which you can rent from your local home building center on Amazon. The popcorn texture is a dry mix of drywall mud and polystyrene, and it comes in a standard white color, so it’s best to prime the wall or ceiling before use. Mix the popcorn texture with water, following the instructions on the package. Make sure to securely cover all surfaces and items that are not to be sprayed. Once the rest of the room is properly covered, spray away. The texture can be painted any color you want after it has dried.
3. Orange Peel
An orange peel texture looks exactly as it sounds—it resembles the peel of an orange. You will need to prime the walls ahead of time so that the texture has a smooth, dirt-free surface to stick to. Pick up a hopper gun with an air-adjustable valve, an air compressor, and drywall compound. Mix the drywall compound with water until it becomes the consistency of thick paint or a soupy pancake batter, then pour it into your hopper. Spray a small amount from the hopper onto a test piece and adjust the air valve to suit the spray pattern that you want. You should be shooting small splatters of compound onto the wall to create the desired texture but not fully covering the primed drywall underneath. Try both heavy splatters and light splatters, and when you are confident in the spray pattern, begin to apply it to the walls. After drying, prime and paint the textured walls.

The knockdown technique creates a unique, rustic pattern, akin to stucco. Knockdown can be achieved by adding a step to the orange peel technique: After applying an orange peel texture to the walls, flatten the peaks and bumps that form in the drywall compound using an 18-inch or wider knockdown knife. Smaller rooms will likely require a wait period of about 10 to 15 minutes after spraying before the peaks can begin to be flattened, while a larger room can probably be started as soon as you are finished spraying. Just be sure to begin flattening in the same area that you began spraying. Be careful with timing! If you begin flattening the drywall compound too early, the knockdown knife will leave lines from the edges of the knife. If you see this happening, stop and wait another five or 10 minutes, then begin again. After flattening all the peaks in the orange peel texture, the wall can then be left to dry overnight before priming and painting.
5. Sand Swirl
Sand swirl adds a feel of individuality to a room without stealing the show. This style of texturing is easy to do using a compound known as perlite (primer with sand mixed into it) and a 7-inch-wide paint brush. Hold the paintbrush by the base, as this will give you more control than holding the handle. Dip the brush a few inches into the perlite, giving it a wipe on either side of the bucket to remove loose drips. Practice making a swirl pattern on a spare piece of drywall before moving onto your wall. Using the brush, start at the very top of the wall, making a big loop with an open bottom. Each row of this swirl pattern will cover up the bottom of the previous row. Apply swirls to a 5-foot section, dipping the brush into the paint after every swirl, then return to your starting point and drop down one row. Continue working your way around the room until you are complete, then let it dry. After a 24-hour drying period, you can prime and paint the walls.
6. Slap Brush
The slap brush texture creates a random pattern of thin lines on your walls that add an eccentric flair to any room. This type of wall texture is a great choice if you aren’t confident with a spray gun. All that is needed for this technique is a roller, a double crows foot drywall texture brush (also known as a slap brush, available on Amazon), and drywall compound. Mix your compound with water until it reaches a thick paint consistency, then apply it evenly to the wall using your roller. Complete two 5-foot-wide sections before picking up the slap brush. Apply drywall compound to each side of the slap brush in a thin coating, and then begin slapping the first section of the wall with the brush. There shouldn’t be any specific pattern to the texture, so have fun with it and mix it up by twisting the angle of the slap brush in the air between slaps. Once the first section is complete, roll the next 5-foot area of the wall, then apply the slap brushing to that section. Repeat this process until you have completed the room. After 24 hours of drying, you can prime and paint the room.
7. Slap Brush Knockdown
A slap brush knockdown texture combines the slap brush technique with the flattening step of the knockdown texture to create a random pattern of flatter, wider lines, instead of peaked, thin lines. To apply this texture, you will need a roller, slap brush, knockdown knife, and drywall compound. Using the slap brush technique, work your way around the room until each wall is evenly covered in a slap brush texture. For smaller rooms, wait 10 to 15 minutes before beginning to knock down the peaks using the knockdown knife. As with the knockdown technique, if you begin too early a line caused by the edge of the knife will appear in the wall texture. Stop if this happens, and wait another five to 10 minutes before proceeding. For larger rooms, you can begin knocking down the peaks in the slap brush texture immediately. Once the peaks on every wall have been flattened, the walls can be left to dry for 24 hours before painting.

How to Texture a Wall
If simple, painted walls don’t fit into your sense of style and your vision for your indoor space, there are a number of ways to add texture and nuance to enliven your rooms. Whether it’s using wallpaper, textured paint, joint compound or a faux finish, the end result of textured walls is well worth the effort.
Wallpaper might be the most common and simple way to add texture to walls. Textured wallpaper has its own built-in feel and design. With so many different styles and colors available, it can be tailored to match existing décor in a room or used to create a new design you have in mind. It can also be painted, if even more customization is desired. An advantage of wallpaper is that it hides wall imperfections, which means you don’t have to repaint regularly to hide scrapes, marks and dings. For full details about how to install wallpaper, see the project How to Hang Wallpaper.
Make Textured Paint
You can add texture to your walls using textured paint. Using paint in this way can give you more options than the basic eggshell, satin or flat sheens. Instead, you may choose from stone, sand, faux finish or original textures. Textured paint is good for hiding blemishes that a flat or satin sheen might show. You can buy textured paint pre-mixed or you can buy packages of powdered texture additive or sand (formulated for mixing with paint) to add to standard paint, such as True Value EasyCare Ultra Premium Interior Paint. Note: Texture additives can be added to both latex and oil paints.
Buying powdered additive is convenient because you can mix the right amount of texturing agent you need for the particular job and effect you’re going for.
Some pre-mixed textured paints are designed for use on both walls and ceilings, but some are designed specifically for one or the other. Check the package to make sure you’re buying the product you need.
Step 1: Prep the Room
Move furniture out of the room or cover it with drop cloths. Also cover the floor to protect it from paint spills and secure the cloths to the floor using painter’s tape. Mask woodwork that you don’t want ruined by paint splatter. Remove fixtures, switch plates, etc., or mask them.
Step 2: Mix Paint and Texture
Pour paint into a large paint mixing container about ½ full. Slowly pour in the additive while mixing together with a mixing stick. Try to add a half cup of the additive at a time until you reach the consistency you’re looking for.
Step 3: Prime the Wall
For best results, apply True Value EasyCare Ultra Premium Interior Primer/Sealer with a brush or roller, starting at the top and painting in a “W”, “X” or “N” pattern and then fill in the spaces. Continue this until you are at the bottom of the wall. Once you reach the bottom load your roller with primer and starting at the top roll all the way to the bottom then go back next to where you just rolled and roll to the bottom again. This should be done until all of the area you had just primed has been rolled in the same direction. Let it dry thoroughly.
Open the windows to make sure you’ll be priming and painting in a well-ventilated area.
Step 4: Paint
Next, apply your texture/paint mixture with the same technique you used with the primer. As you’re painting, look closely at the results and ensure that your desired texture effect is successful. If the texture isn’t coarse enough for your tastes, add more texture additive to your paint and start over. If it’s too much, you may need to start a new mixture of paint and texture to get the effect you want.
Apply Joint Compound
You’re probably familiar with textured ceilings; a similar effect can be created on your walls with joint compound, also known as “drywall mud”.
Step 1: Prep the Wall
Clean the walls with a sponge, water and mild detergent. Let them dry. Move furniture out of the room or cover it with drop cloths. Also cover the floor to protect it from any joint compound that might spill on it and secure the cloths to the floor using painter’s tape (you’ll be laying the compound on fairly thick and it can easily drop off the drywall knife).
Remove fixtures, switch plates, etc., or mask them and any woodwork that you don’t want ruined by drops of compound or paint with painter’s tape.
You can also leave these protective measures in place for when you begin to paint the walls in Step 5.
Step 2: Prepare the Compound
Purchase a large quantity of joint compound, either ready-to-use or dry mix. The exact amount will vary, depending on how much wall square footage you plan on covering. But you will need to buy in bulk, so get at least a 12-lb. pail of ready-to-use compound or 18-lb. bag of dry mix compound. If you will be mixing your compound, you will also need a large bucket in which to mix the compound with water. Follow the manufacturer’s directions when mixing the compound to prepare it.
Step 3: Begin Application of “Mud”
Start applying the compound to the wall using a 10” drywall knife, beginning in corners, along baseboards or at the top of the wall and work inwards in small sections. Coat the wall with a layer of compound at about a 1/8” to a ¼” in depth. If you want a rougher effect you can go thicker, you just want to try and be as consistent as possible in the depth. It doesn’t have to be perfect as you’re going for a textured appearance, but you don’t want large hills or valleys on the surface. Working in small sections (3’ x 3’) allows you to take your time adding the desired texture effect. Keep a smaller drywall knife (4” to 5”) handy for applying mud to tighter spaces.
Step 4: Add Texture
There are any number of ways to create the texture you want. You can use combs and brushes to create striations, sponges to create swirls or mottling, stencils, or even your fingers to make your design. Practice on a scrap piece of drywall to test your design and so you don’t end up with undesired results. Finish texturing your 3’ x 3’ section of wall and then apply compound to the adjacent wall surface in the same dimensions. Add texture and then repeat the process until you’ve covered the entire wall. Let the compound dry for the length of time recommended by the manufacturer.
You can use sandpaper to remove any unwanted ridges or projections from too much joint compound. Use a fine-grit paper to smooth down defects. Sand lightly so that you don’t mar your design.
Step 5: Paint the Wall
Apply True Value EasyCare Ultra Premium Interior Paint with a brush or roller, starting at the top and painting in a “W”, “X” or “N” pattern and then fill in the spaces. Continue this until you are at the bottom of the wall. Once you reach the bottom load your roller with paint and starting at the top roll all the way to the bottom then go back next to where you just rolled and roll to the bottom again. This should be done until all of the area you had just painted has been rolled in the same direction. This ensures good hide and durability from your paint job. Let it dry thoroughly. Add a second coat if any of the wall underneath is still showing. For best results use a roller cover with a thick nap so that paint effectively makes it into all nooks and crannies on the textured surface.
Apply Faux Finish
You can use a sponge painting or rag rolling to create texture on plain walls. Rag rolling is done by using a twisted or bunched up rag to roll paint on or pull it off irregularly, creating a mottled effect for a custom look that is all your own. Using a sponge to dab paint on a surface provides a similar but unique effect. Follow the steps below to do it right.
Step 1: Paint a Base Coat
Using a paintbrush or roller, apply a coat of True Value EasyCare Ultra Premium Interior Paint in eggshell finish in a color of your choice. Allow the wall to dry completely for at least 24 hours before painting a new coat. Let the second coat dry for at least 24 hours as well before the next step.
Step 2: Start Rolling or Sponging
You will need a few clean linen or lint-free cotton cloths or rags, or a sea sponge (they provide a more irregular, natural appearance than synthetic sponges). For rag rolling, decide which method you want to use: rolling on or rolling off. Each of them provides different variations of the same texture. Rolling off usually means less of the base coat will show through, compared to rolling on the paint. Rolling off also usually requires more rags because they eventually become saturated with paint and cease to provide the desired effect. Choose a small portion of the wall to use as a test area to see which method works best for you. You can always paint over what you’ve done.
For the next coat, use a slightly darker shade of the same color paint you used as your base coat or vice versa, if you want the base coat to be darker than the top coat.
For better results, try diluting the paint for the next coat by mixing it with water in a paint tray. Aim for getting the mixture at a ratio of 2:1 (paint to water).
If you’re rolling on the paint, dip your rag into a paint tray to cover it with paint. Be careful not to over-saturate the cloth. Twist it or bunch it up into a ball to distribute paint evenly throughout and then roll the cloth down the wall with steady pressure, starting at the top. Try not to use the same downward stroke each time or the results may be too uniform; you want to use slightly angled, different strokes, re-adjusting as you move along the wall. Keep extra rags handy, as once one becomes too saturated with paint, you’ll need a new one because it won’t work in the same way. Do this across the entire surface of the wall until you’ve covered it completely.
When rolling off the paint, apply the next coat of paint over the base coat with a roller or paintbrush. Then, immediately begin rolling a clean twisted or bunched up rag down the wall. The clean rag will pick up paint from where you just painted, creating the textured appearance.
Do small areas at a time so that the top coat doesn’t dry before you begin rolling.
Once the rag has become completely saturated with paint, discard it and use another. Keep applying paint and rolling it off in downward strokes across the surface of the wall until you’ve covered it.
If you’re using sponges, soak a sponge with paint and then dab it on the surface to create random textures on top of the basecoat. For a consistent appearance, make sure your dabs overlap each other. To get maximum texture, periodically re-wet the sponge.

Here’s what you’ll need to complete this project successfully.
Sometimes you can hear the question: “why do you need wall painting if there are enough beautiful and textured wallpapers?” Yes, there are beautiful wallpapers. But where is the guarantee that exactly the same ones are not glued in the neighboring apartment? Can wallpaper convey a piece of the artist’s soul and talent? Are they able to fully convey the style and character of the owners of the premises or “open a window” to the fairy-tale world? Of course not! Only artistic wall painting will give you a guarantee of the uniqueness of your interior, fill your home with the magic of painting, warmth and comfort.
People who have never encountered wall painting before cannot always answer the question of what wall painting is. For some, associative thinking suggests that these can simply be painted pictures, others that these are texts on walls or graffiti, which can be seen everywhere in big cities. However, such opinions are very far from the truth. Therefore, let’s take a closer look at what wall painting is and how it can be used in creating an interior.
The origins of wall painting originate in ancient times, when primitive people began to decorate cave vaults with paintings to convey information. Even back then it worked out pretty well. However, the traditional understanding of artistic wall painting became clear only in the format of sacred painting by the great masters of the Renaissance.
Modern wall painting has a more local character, representing one of the most important elements of the decorative design of the room. Today it is impossible to find a more exclusive element of decor than wall art painting. The value of this design lies in the individual handiwork of the artist. After all, it is not for nothing that at all times, even when wallpapers appeared, wall painting was considered the most chic type of wall decoration. Even despite the fact that the cost of wall painting, compared to other types of finishes, is quite high.
Wall painting in the interior will tell the guests of the house not only about the impeccable taste of the owner of the room, but also about his success. In addition, with the help of wall painting, you can achieve a variety of visual effects, visually enlarging the room, and placing color and tone accents. It is very difficult to convey in words the impression that a person has when entering a room decorated with wall paintings. Artistic wall painting pushes the boundaries of space, creating a feeling of a huge, unrestricted room, so it seems that there are simply no walls.
There are no limits to the possibilities of wall painting. Wall painting, made by a talented and professional artist, will give the interior the necessary stylistic direction and maximize the inner world of the owner of the house. Wallpapered, even the most beautiful, the walls are uninteresting and faceless, so they need additional decorative elements. And the painting on the walls is absolutely self-sufficient and does not require additional decorations.
Today, there are a large number of technologies and techniques for painting walls. Modern technologies, materials and tools give artists almost limitless possibilities. But first of all, you need to carefully prepare the surface, and make sure that it is clean and smooth. The basis for drawing a picture can be both smooth and textured plaster. Based on the goal, materials for wall painting are selected. It can be either fluorescent paints, or oil or acrylic. In the same way, wall painting technologies are selected from the goal, for example, volumetric painting or fresco. One of the main tools for drawing a picture on the walls is an airbrush. It helps to paint walls with the necessary brightness and saturation, creating perfectly even images without traces of brush strokes.
You can see photos of wall paintings made by different techniques, learn more about possible interesting ideas in the interior, about the history of painting, and how to paint a wall yourself in the information section on painting walls and ceilings. And now we will talk in more detail about the most popular techniques and technologies for applying images to the wall.
Airbrushing is considered the easiest and most affordable way to apply a picture on a wall. The word “aerography” itself translates as “I write with air.” Naturally, the image in the airbrush technique is drawn not with air, but with paint, but air is most directly related to this type of art. After all, the airbrush, with which paint is applied, operates with the help of compressed air. Due to the fact that the airbrush makes it possible to smoothly spray a thin layer of paint, it is possible to achieve artistic painting of interior walls with indescribable decorative effects. For example, smooth color transitions, photographic reality, three-dimensionality, imitation of a rough texture with an absolutely flat surface. You can learn more about this type of artistic wall painting in the airbrushing walls section.
The most popular paint used today for wall painting is acrylic paint. Its advantages are obvious – it is easy to apply, odorless, dries quickly and allows you to achieve amazing pictorial effects.
Painting made with acrylic does not require special care and can be applied to almost any degreased surface. In addition, acrylic allows you to work simultaneously with other types of paints in mixed media.
Acrylic differs from tempera and oil paints in increased strength, elasticity and light resistance, which significantly expands its technical capabilities. Acrylic paints perfectly convey the play of light, visually increase the volume of the image and provide the possibility of textured technique.
You can learn more about painting walls with acrylic paint in the section Painting walls with acrylic paints.
Fresco is one of the oldest and most fashionable wall painting techniques in contemporary design. Wall painting in this technique implies a special technology of painting on wet plaster. The main difference between fresco painting and any other type of wall painting in the interior is a special pictorial texture and durability. Today, frescoes can look both like modern painting and like an old work, with complete imitation and transmission of ancient texture. Such “aging” is achieved thanks to a wide variety of paints, modern plasters and patting techniques.
It is difficult to overestimate the aesthetic significance of frescoes – this is exactly the touch that gives the interior individuality, creates a mood and emphasizes respectability. You can learn more about this technique of wall painting in the Fresco on the wall section.
Volumetric painting is very popular due to its unique feature – the ability to “break” the space, expand the room, raise the ceiling and add additional illusory objects. With the help of this type of painting, you can easily imitate a wide variety of architectural elements – an open window with a seascape, a staircase going up to the sky, a balcony overlooking Venice. When looking at the three-dimensional painting, a very real feeling of the existence of this virtual world is created.
The main task of volumetric wall painting is to make the image “alive”, radiate warmth and give the interior more comfort, some kind of mystery, and please those around you. You can learn more about this type of wall painting in the section Blended painting.
Fluorescent painting is a painting of walls using special paints that glow in the dark under the influence of ultraviolet lamps. An extensive range of colors of fluorescent paints makes it possible to realize any design idea and make the interior unique, creating a variety of illusions and effects. To achieve a greater effect, fluorescent painting can be applied to three-dimensional elements and reliefs, thereby giving a multi-texture artistic wall painting.
With the help of fluorescent painting, you can naturally and vividly convey the reflections of a snowy forest, the light of the night moon, the atmosphere of a night city, turning the interior of the room into a unique and unforgettable work of art. You can learn more about fluorescent painting in the section Painting walls with fluorescent paint.

TECHNIQUE and TECHNOLOGY of wall painting.
In this section we will consider various questions on materials and wall painting technology.
A lot of comments have accumulated, and we have divided them into several pages.
You can ask your question on Page 3.

1. What is the basis for interior wall painting?
Depending on the requirements of the customer for painting, we use one of two bases:
The first base – the classic and most popular – is painting the wall on the finishing layer of plaster (or on non-woven or any other wallpaper glued to the wall).
The second basis for painting in the interior is a canvas on which the painting is created, and which is then glued to the wall (or installed together with a stretcher in the place allotted for painting).
The second version of the basis for painting is convenient to use when, for some reason, it is impossible for artists to be on the object of painting, but it is necessary to complete the work itself. In this case, the monumental work has some mobility both at the time of installation and in case of damage to the wall plaster (for example, a leak in the house), since, if necessary, it can be separated from the wall. But this option has a drawback – in large-scale paintings, it is difficult to avoid the appearance of joints and seams between the edges of the canvas, since the width of the canvas is limited.
The first version of painting directly on wall plaster or wallpaper is convenient to use in almost all cases and in any room, dry or damp. The main thing here is to prepare the wall well, since the painting itself will already be inseparable from it.
2. How to prepare the wall for painting?
To put it quite simply, the wall for painting should be prepared as if it were a normal paint job, nothing special or additional needs to be done here.
All the work of preparing the wall is usually done by a construction team of craftsmen. Therefore, we will not delve into the nuances of building materials and technologies within the framework of this article.
Let us just remind you that it is necessary to prepare a wall for painting very well, since the durability of the painting itself depends on it. If the wall is poorly prepared, then the painting may crack over time along with the plaster, at the joints of drywall or wallpaper, peel off, crumble or change color.
The work of artists on painting usually begins with the application of an acrylic primer (impregnation). The primer gives a strong protective layer, prevents sprinkling of the surface, strengthens it. Provides excellent bonding of the paint to the wall. For dry and wet areas, different primers are used.
In order to simply and visually imagine the modern technology of wall painting, below is a conditional diagram that shows all the main stages of wall preparation and painting in the form of layers, starting from the base of the wall and ending with varnishing the finished painting (using the example of the mineral base of the wall):
1. Wall base.
2. Plaster layer.
3. Finishing putty.
5. Painting layer.
6. Acrylic lacquer (optional).
3. What is the process of wall painting?
Wall painting is carried out in stages:
a) Search for an idea for wall decoration.
b) Development of sketches and approval of the final version of the sketch of the future painting with the customer.
c) Wall primer.
d) Transferring the picture to the wall and, if necessary, linear rendering of the entire composition.
e) Execution of painting with paints, work on local spots of the composition, volumes and details. It is carried out from the general to the particular, which allows you to maintain the integrity of the entire painting.
f) Coating the finished painting with matt varnish to give additional strength to the surface of the painting (optional).
4. What materials are used for wall painting?
Primer – We impregnate the wall with a construction acrylic primer. In wet rooms, special moisture-resistant primers with antifungal additives are used.
Painting – We paint with acrylic paints (construction and art). In wet rooms, special acrylic paints are also used, which give a very durable surface. Acrylic paints are non-toxic, diluted with water, dry quickly, are universal in use – they can be used both as body strokes and glazes on almost any surface. After drying, they give a durable film that is not washed off with water and resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Therefore, the painting can be wiped (washed) with a damp cloth and it will not fade in the sun.
We write with brushes (synthetics, bristles, squirrels), rollers, palette knives, rags, pieces of paper, adhesive tape, foam rubber, etc. We use an airbrush, spray gun or balloons depending on the tasks of painting.
Lacquer – If necessary, we cover the finished painting with a layer of matt acrylic varnish, which increases the protective properties of the wall painting. But this is optional.
All materials are included in the cost of painting, they do not require a separate payment.
5. What are the stages of cooperation with the customer?
This is the scenario in which we usually work – from receiving an application to the successful delivery of the mural.
Application. Cooperation begins with your application for a wall painting. Leave us a request in any way convenient for you: CONTACTS. To calculate the price, we will need to know the following about your painting: 1. The size of the painting; 2. Desired terms and deadlines for completion of works; 3. Address of the object; 4. Wet or dry room, or is it outdoor painting; 5. Do you need to make a sketch, or do you already have a picture; 6. What do you want to draw, picture style; 7. Whether it will be necessary to work in the evenings, weekends or at night; 8. How the wall is prepared, what kind of surface it has; 9. Altitude of work
Calculation and approval of the cost. Having received information about the painting, we will calculate everything and inform you of the cost of our work.
We always try to quote an adequate and accurate turnkey price, which will not change in the course of cooperation. The price already includes all materials, sketches and work.
Next, we approve the price of painting with you and, when all agreements are reached, we proceed to the next stage:
Contract and advance payment. We meet with you at the site, take measurements, sign a contract, and you pay an advance. Usually it is 50% of the cost of the work. In cash or non-cash form. We issue a check.
Painting sketches. If you need to develop a sketch, then we perform several variants of sketches for painting, based on your wishes. We also do visualization of sketches in the interior. You choose which of the sketches you like best. If the sketch does not meet your requirements in some details, we will finalize it. If you like the sketch completely, then it is approved for execution.
Painting. After the sketch is approved, we carry out the necessary preparatory work and start working on the painting at the facility. We guarantee you a careful attitude to the objects of your interior, do not stain anything and take out the garbage. Also, we do not disrupt the deadlines for the completion of work, we do everything efficiently and politely. At the time of our work, there is no need to stop the work of the office (or any room) – we can work on weekends, evenings and nights, and we also adjust the creative process of creating a mural to the specific tasks of the project.
Acceptance of painting and payment of the balance. Upon completion of our work, we will notify you of the readiness of the painting for acceptance. You look at everything and, if you like everything, we sign the acceptance certificate, and you pay the rest of the amount for our work.
6. How much does wall painting cost?
The cost of the entire painting is calculated from the cost per square meter, depending on the complexity and thoroughness of the details. Our prices can be found in the PRICES section.
7. Do you need artists to join your team?
