Choose option

Of course, it is important that the future wardrobe was decorated in the overall style of the room. It may well be a bright accent, but still should not stand out from the general impression of the room. If the whole room is decorated in retro style, then you should not do the decor of the old cabinet in the high-tech color scheme.

  • Paints. The easiest option. But he is not boring at all! Repainted wardrobe can look incredibly interesting.
  • The decor of the cabinet is wallpaper. A very affordable way to radically transform any item of furniture. Moreover, then the room and furniture will really be in the same style.

  • Decoupage This option has conquered many, because it really creates amazing things with furniture! With decoupage any wardrobe will become a separate piece of design.
  • Bulk plaster. Elements of modeling can surprisingly transform even the most boring wardrobe. And if they are emphasized with gilding or any other paint, then the furniture will instantly be ennobled and shine in a new color.

No one forbids combining different types of decoration with each other. Plaster and decoupage are often used together, wallpaper and elements of painting look quite harmonious. Only self-adhesive film is usually used as a standalone decor.



With brush in hand

Decor cabinet colors - one of the most simple. Even just a single-colored wardrobe already looks completely different. It is best to use water-based paint or acrylic. A water emulsion is more advantageous for use on large surfaces, for example, for a cabinet facade, but it is more convenient to do acrylic work on "jewelry" work.



Aqueous emulsion and acrylic paints are practically odorless. So you can paint the furniture at home. However, place a film or paper under the cabinet so as not to smudge the floor. It is not necessary to cover the finished decor with any varnishes. Both paints are very resistant.
