Balance room effect

Colors significantly influence the visual effect of a room. Thus, the spatial conditions in the apartment can be well balanced.

For long, narrow rooms, the spatial effect can be compensated for by painting the front side darker.

Enlarge small rooms

Vertical stripes increase small, narrow spaces. Interesting here can also be tone-on-tone designs or strips of different widths in the individual rooms.

Walls in concrete look

The very clearly structured concrete look is produced in a two-layer process. The first step is to apply a putty knife and smooth it with a special smoother. As a finish, an effect filler is applied over it and also smoothed.

Concrete look is well suited for minimalist rooms, and for all rooms in which a particularly clear, simple design language predominates in the furnishing.

Mediterranean style
