Creative Ways To Have Your Stucco Wall Painted

by Jill Jenkins

If you have a stucco wall around your property, you may like the idea of doing something different with it. Stucco walls can add a great touch to the look of your property, and there are some things you can do to help them stand out. This article will provide you with some ideas on how you can add to the look of your wall to make it stand out while also not conflicting with the rest of your landscaping.

Painting the wall two-tone

If you have a stucco wall that has posts along its length, then you can have the posts painted a darker shade than the rest of the wall. If you choose, you can have this done so the posts and wall match the trim and wall of your house. This will give your entire property a nice, uniform appearance.

You can also have a darker border added to the top of your wall. This can be a good way for you to create the illusion that the wall is shorter than it is. If there are areas of brick on your wall, you'll want to stick to a color that has neutral tones that tend to go well with brick. Some examples of these colors include light tans, light grays and light reds.

Go for a sponge-painted look

If you are looking to add a creative effect to the look of your wall, you may want to consider going with the sponge-painted look. This will give the stucco wall the look of two different colors, with a darker base and lighter highlights, or vice versa. This is a good way for you to bring two colors of your house to the wall without clean lines.

Painting a scene on the wall

Another thing that can add a great look to your wall is to have a scene custom-painted on it. This is an especially great idea if you have distinct landscaping you want to emphasize by tying it in with your wall. For example, if your landscaping has a western feel, you can have a shadow of a band of wild mustangs painted on the outside of your stucco wall.

By having your stucco wall custom painted to go with the rest of your landscaping, you can achieve the overall unified look and feel you are going for. If you would rather not paint your stucco wall yourself, consider hiring a professional painting company like Thompson Painting to do the job for you.
