Make a Statement with Metallics

Sometimes you want a room to feel spectacular - more than just a regular coat of flat paint can provide. For those daring enough to make a statement, paint companies are selling metallics. Generally reserved for dining rooms, the metallic look is making its way into other areas of the house with patterns and new color options.

These options are great for a statement wall or sitting room, or for a naturally dark bedroom. The metallic textures take a few more coats than a normal gloss, but they add a warm glow and an upscale, classy look to any room.

If you aren't interested in a full sheen, consider patterns like these:

And don't just consider gold, silver and bronze when adding extra glam to your home - Sherwin Williams and Ralph Lauren both have metallic options that span the color wheel.
