Houzz: How to Paint Perfect Wall Stripes

Whether they're horizontal or vertical, stripes are one trend I hope won't go out of style any time soon. This versatile motif adds visual interest and can help showcase a room's fine points and de-emphasize flaws.

Use vertical stripes in a room with low ceilings to create the illusion of height, or use wide horizontal stripes in a room with high ceilings to ground the space. Play with the size and color to create a unique look — subtle tone-on-tone stripes of equal size create a subdued and relaxed environment, while bright, contrasting stripes varying in size create a more modern and graphic impact.

Now that I have you ready to bust out your painting supplies, here's a helpful how-to that will help you achieve perfect stripes every time. Check out my latest Houzz Ideabook for all the tips and tricks.

So what about you guys?  Are you fans of using stripes on your walls?  Or do you prefer to use them on decor throughout your home?
