6 Exterior Wall Decor Must-Try Ideas

When working on the exterior decor of your home, the walls are one of the most important decor elements to consider. Whether you want to play with textures or experiment with different exterior wall paint colors to achieve the right look, there are endless options for you to choose from.

To make things easier for you, we’ve listed down a few creative exterior wall decor ideas. Enjoy the interesting read below:

1) Nature-inspired decor

Mother nature is the best artist; by using natural elements, you cannot go wrong in creating an intriguing aesthetic. One creative way to make your home’s exterior walls look nature-inspired is to keep climbing plants.

Paint the walls with our aqua blue shade Gaugin’s Blue (5T1156) to create a vibrant backdrop which artistically complements the plant’s color. Choose more paint colors from our Color Catalogue at https://www.bergernepal.com/colorcatalogue/index.

2) Modern meets rustic

What happens when you create the right mix of modern and rustic in your exterior walls? Magic! This decor idea requires a bit of work but it’s totally worth it. Keep a vintage-looking iron bench in front of one of the exterior walls (the wall facing the garden makes the best spot).

Accessorise the bench with a wooden crate with clusters of flowers placed on it. Complete the look by painting the walls with our bright yellow shade Yellow Zodiac (3A0388).

3) A welcoming look

What better way to impress your guests than by creating a welcoming look in the exterior walls? Choose an iron welcome signage and install it on the front exterior wall of your home. Match the rigid texture of the signage with large-sized ceramic flower pots. To nail the look, use our classic neutral shade, Palace Walls (7P0188).

4) A little something for the garden walls

Who said you can’t be creative with the design of your garden’s walls? One inexpensive way to spruce up the garden walls is to keep a hanging wooden shelf. Accessorise the shelf with small potted plants and colorful mason jars.

To highlight the shelf, create a neutral backdrop by painting the walls with our balanced white shade White Sphere (8P2679).

5) A vintage appeal

Nothing beats a vintage look when it comes to creating a lasting impression. Add a timeless charm to your home’s exterior walls by installing black-colored vintage metal wall lamps. Black wall lamps stand out in a bright backdrop.

Paint the walls with our orange shade Sun Blazer (2D2034) to draw more attention to the wall lamps. A bit of greenery works just fine for completing the look.

6) Tea party-ready balcony

What better place to host tea parties for your favourite people than in your balcony? Make your balcony ready for conversational tea parties by creating a light and relaxing background. Our off white shade Crystal Blade (8P2767) helps you create a neutral backdrop. Use a couple of wall hangings to accessorise the walls in a stylish way. Also, do not forget to use potted plants to create a refreshing ambience in the space.

Colors That Will Make Your Home Ready To Welcome ‘Dashain’

Dashain is exciting, and so are the colors associated with the year-long anticipated festival. No other festival in Nepal equals Dashain when it comes to celebrating good times with your loved ones amidst vibrant colors.

This year, welcome the happiness and joy that Dashain brings by giving a festive makeover to your home. These colors associated with the festivity will help you make your home look Dashain-ready in an unmistakable way:

1) Red

If there’s one color that truly captures the essence of Dashain, it’s red. As a color of the tika, red adorns the color palette of Dashain with a vibrant charm. The color symbolizes love, happiness, prosperity, and strength – all of which make Dashain a much-treasured festival.

Red makes a great interior and exterior house paint color. Choose our sophisticated shades of red, including Cameroon Rose (1D0479), Boston Brick (1A0512), and Scarlet Tide (1A2794); pair these red shades with supporting colors such as black, deep violet, and titanium for the exterior and interior of your home.

2) Yellow

Like red, yellow is almost everywhere in the Dashain festivities. It’s the color of the essential elements of the festival, including the jamaras, sayapatris, and hembaris of chaubandi cholos. In context to Dashain, yellow signifies peace and harmony.

Use yellow as an interior color to introduce a festive vibe in your rooms. Our tasteful yellow shades, Touch of Sunshine (3P0754), Coconut Cream (3P2069), and Yellow Veil (3T2085) help you double the festive essence in your rooms.

3) Green

Without green, the lively spirit of Dashain is not complete. Green enlivens the spirit of Dashain in an intrinsic way.

During Dashian, green can be used to make a style transformation in your rooms. Choose our balanced green shades, Green Paradise (4T0925), Green Echo (4D0271), and  Four Leaf Clover (4A0976) to elevate the festive look in your rooms.

4) Orange

Orange, the color of sayapatri flower, accents the color scheme of Dashain in a subtle yet tasteful way. The color creates a striking contrast with other colors that have a strong association with the festival.

Use orange as an interior color to introduce a festive charm in your rooms. Our vibrant orange shades Sundry (2T0685), Apricot Serenade (2D0227), and Orange Spice (2A0664) are some of the best paints for walls as they add a positive festive ambience to your rooms.

5) Blue

Clear blue sky is one of the elements of Dashian that brings forth the festive excitement. Playing on the swings under the bright blue Dashain sky is something you can’t miss out on during the festival.

If you are choosing blue as an exterior house paint color, then go for our deep blue shades Blue Daydream (5T0294) and Blue Bubble (5D0295) to create a welcoming look in your home’s exterior. Our light blue shades, Blue Tuft (5T2276) and Inner Peace (5T1179) make the perfect choice for elevating your rooms’ style quotient. With these shades of blue, you can welcome the bright and lively days of Dashain in your home in an effortless way.

For interiors, our Silk Glamour emulsion is the right choice to ensure a rich finish of the new colors.

How To Decorate With Dark Colors? Check Out The Below Tips.

For a cozy setting, dark palettes are perfect. They can add a dramatic effect to any room. If executed properly dark colors can even give a small room statement-making presence. All you need to do is to create contrast and a sense of balance.  Here are a few ideas to use dark colors and make your house look chic and glamorous:

Dark colors: Want to know which ones are the best paint for your walls?

To help you choose the best color for interior walls, we have curated a list of dark shades that will give your home a lift

1.Stroll in the park(4T0933):  Green is one of the underestimated colors when it comes to home decor.  Our Stroll In The Park is a powerful color and reminds you of forage and everything natural.

Berger Paints Nepal

To nail this look, color the walls of your living room with Stroll In The Park and balance it with a mix of light and neutral-colored furniture and accessories. While the color gives a jungle-like vibe, the use of light-colored furniture such as a golden coffee table, golden frame, and ornate mirror gives the room a sparkly feel. To make the room alive and bring in the good vibes, potted plants can do wonders.

2.Blue Daydream (5T0294): Blue is one color that is classic and yet refreshingly new. It is one color that you can never get enough of. To bring the calmness of the sky and picturesqueness of the sea into your home, Blue Daydream is the best paint for walls. For a coastal-like feel, decorate the room with furniture in similar shades. To break away from the color monotony and make the room look a little bit airier, decorate the room with white accents like photo frames, and keep the flooring light-colored preferably white.

Berger Paints Nepal

3.Cherry Pie ( 1A0363) : If there’s one color that sends your adrenaline rushing, it’s red. Cherry Pie  is perfect for the kitchen and the dining room as red is considered to be a stimulating color. To stimulate the appetite and to let your eyes feast on your home decor, a dining room in Cherry Pie is what you would love to have. If you don’t want to paint the town red, offset the color with generous use of white. A white ceiling and a light-colored flooring can counterbalance the edginess of Cherry Pie.

4.Resilient Grey (8D2696): To bring the night-sky-like feel to your bathroom, paint it with Resilient Grey. It will give your bathroom a high-gloss feel and the white bathroom fixtures with high-shine taps can lend the bathroom a luxurious feel. To bounce off natural light, make use of mirrors.

5.Bright Wine (1a0366):  If paired with right accessories, Bright Wine instantly freshens up your decor. To nail this look, use natural elements like potted plants, bamboo accessories, and a vintage wooden chest. Mix and match textiles, glass and ceramic accessories to create an atmosphere that promotes calm and relaxation.

Our homes are an extension of ourselves and we want them to be a space where we feel relaxed. Right wall colors and decor play a key role in turning our living space into a cozy snug.  Are you looking for the best color for interior walls to add a high dose of cosines to your home decor?

Interior Design Trends That Are A Hit In 2019 ( so far!)

When it comes to home decor, 2019 has been so far the year of colors. Be it accent walls or statement ceilings, colors are being used extensively to create conversation-starting visual interest in any room. If you are planning to renovate your house, then here are a few trends that are dominating the home decor space this year.

  1. Energizing colors: If you are planning to give your home a refreshing new look, kick start the process by selecting the right interior wall paint. While last year was all about vibrant and bright colors, 2019 is all about pastel colors like light and muted shades of green, blue, and pink which add an understated vibe to your home decor.

For small rooms, pastel colors are the best paint for indoor walls as they give a space an airy and open feel.  For bigger rooms, the chalky and muted pastel colors add edginess to space without being too overwhelming. Create a lively and contemporary kitchen with Coral Sea (1T0223) and Fabulous White (7P0185) or you can use this combination in a room that gets an abundance of natural light. Muted shades of green like Bella Mint (4P0096) and orange like Honey Cream (2P0714) are great for creating a fresh and sleek look in the house.

  1. Statement ceilings: Ceilings, often called the fifth wall, let you add an artistic expression to your home. Painting the ceiling the same color as the rest of the room can help you create a room that looks complete and rich. Shades of blue like Wonder Lake (5T0287) and Southern Skies (5T1036) are great to make you feel as if you are in the lap of the serene sky.

  1. Metallic accessories: One trend that is ruling the home decor scene is metallic accessories. Metallic accessories give your house a dramatic and luxurious look. To make your house truly sparkle, glam it up with metallic pendant lights, copper accents, and furniture with golden metallic legs. For a rustic and earthy look, keep the metallic look understated with a matte finish. To up the glamour quotient, go for striking high-gloss metals. You can also mix and match gold, silver, copper, and brass.

Berger Paints Nepal

To highlight the metallic accessories, paint your walls with White Sphere 8p2679 or Crystal Blade 8p2767.

  1. Unique wall art

From beach wall art for creating a laidback waterfront vibe to hand-painted fancy plates, show-stopping statement wall decor has dominated 2019 (so far!) We are seeing the popularity of abstract and contemporary wall art go up. These wall art installations appear as an extension of a painting or a sculpture and add a heavy dose of drama to a room’s decor.

To reduce the visual clutter, go for wall colors such as Sea Holly 5T0301 or Being Discreet 7p1943.

If you are planning to give your walls and ceilings a refreshing new look, let the interior wall paints by Berger Paints Nepal do their magic. Color consultants at Berger Paints can help you choose the colors as per the weather and the natural light your house gets.

Undercoat Paint: Why Is It Necessary

Why do home painting professionals recommend using undercoat paint prior to applying the topcoat? What’re the benefits of applying undercoat paint? We’ll be discussing the answers to these questions here –

1) Undercoat paint ensures proper adhesion of top coats

Proper adhesion plays an important role in ensuring the longevity of the paint. Without proper adhesion to the wall surface, the new paint starts flaking within a couple of month’s time. Whether you want to apply the new paint over a glossy or a rough surface, using a bonding primer will help you create an outer layer that the new paint can stick to.

At Berger Paints Nepal, we provide undercoat paints that are designed to provide a high sheen and lasting finish to new paints. Explore some of the best paint for walls at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats.

Berger Paints Nepal

2) Undercoat paint seals pores in unfinished surfaces

Unfinished surfaces such as bare wood and concrete have numerous small-sized pores which absorb paint. To understand the problem better, you can take a piece of unfinished wood and apply a coat of paint over it, you’ll notice that the paint starts thinning as it is absorbed in the pores. In other words, you’ll have to apply multiple coats of paint on unfinished wall surfaces which significantly increases your paint expenses.

To steer clear of this issue, it’s important to paint such unfinished surfaces with a high-quality primer. Apply two coats of primer and allow 1 day of drying time for each coat. This way, you’ll just have to apply 1 or 2 coats of paint.

Berger Paints Nepal

3) Undercoat paint ensures a uniform finish

When applying paint coats directly over wall surfaces, you don’t always achieve a uniform finish. This is because many wooden and concrete walls have dark or light-colored patching on them, especially when they are recently repaired.

Similarly, you may not achieve a consistent finish if the walls have stains such as crayon marks and greasy spots on them. Applying undercoat paint helps you create a blank slate which, in turn, ensures a consistent paint color finish.

Berger Paints Nepal

4) Undercoat paint ensures the correct color of the topcoat

When you are making a major color switch, you can’t achieve the correct color of the new topcoat if you paint it over the existing one. Because the result you will get will be the combination of the existing and new colors.

For example, if you are painting a light shade directly over a dark one, the new topcoat will develop a dark tinge. It is often advised to first bring the existing wall colors to a neutral white using a primer and then proceeding with the new topcoat.

Ensure a rich finish & longevity of new paints with high-quality undercoat paints

You sure are buying the best paints for walls? But will they last long and maintain their original look? To be sure, choose the best undercoat paints. Explore our collection at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats.

Seal-O-Primer is one of the most functional and versatile undercoat paints in our collection. Designed for exterior and interior, the primer forms an undercoat that seals the porosity of the wall surface. This lowers paint absorption and provides rich coverage of the top coat.

Tips To Choose The Best Front Door Color

While giving the exteriors of your home a facelift, are you skipping or neglecting the front door – the most important part of your home’s exterior? By styling the front door right, you can give your guests a stylish welcome.  While there are several ways to decorate your front door, choosing the right colors is one of the effective ways to amp up the visual appeal of your home, and we are here to help you choose the right colors for your front door:

1) In sync with the surrounding wall colors

One simple way to choose colors for your front door is to take visual cues from the surrounding wall colors. This approach helps you create a thought-out look for the exteriors of your home.

For example, if you have painted the front walls beige or with other similar neutrals, then natural wooden colors go right with the color scheme. If your front door has a natural barewood finish, improve its appearance by polishing it. Another option is to choose a light or a dark wooden color such as our shades Afterburn (1D0219) and Autumn Leaves (1D2017), and transform the door’s look. Apply 2 coats of exterior primer on the door to make sure the colors come out right. Explore exterior primer price at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats

2) Go monochrome

For small homes, a monochrome look can help you create a decluttered look. Paint the front walls, door headers, and columns white so that they visually blend in together. Next, paint the front door completely with black; our balanced black shade Tuxedo Tail (8A2693) makes a great choice.

Choosing a glossy black paint will help you create a chic look. To get more creative with the color, paint the door knob golden. Keep a couple of potted plants to add a dose of greenery.

3) Stick with the classics

Nothing beats classic colors when it comes to withstanding the test of time. If you have a vintage, cottage-style home, a dark green color like our Shaded Woods (8A2664) creates the right retro-chic look.

The timeless character of this color helps your home’s facade stay in vogue amidst the changing seasons and trends. Choose metals such as copper and bronze for a doorknob and front lighting fixture to effortlessly pull off the classic, timeless look.

4) Take the bold approach

Things, at times, get boring when you play by the rules. One safe way to artistically break away from the convention is to create a striking color contrast – if the exterior wall colors are light, then paint the front door with a bright color.

Our bright blue shade Blue Daydream (5T0294) creates a striking contrast against a white backdrop. Apart from the front door, you can also use the color to bring the windows and trims to life. The shade makes a vibrant and attractive interior wall paint color as well.

Tips To Choose The Right Paint Finish

There’s more to do than just plan the wall color schemes to achieve the look you want in your rooms. You also have to choose the right paint finish. After all, it’s the finish of the paint that pronounces the overall look and feel of the wall colors.

There are several paint finishes available and it can be a bit of a challenge to choose the right one for your rooms, especially if you are new to interior painting. Here, we have shared a few useful tips to help you pick the right paint finish:

  1. Take cues from the style you are going for

One of the simplest ways to choose the right paint finish is to consider the look you want to spruce up your rooms with. For example, if you are going for a chic, ultramodern look, you can make a glossy or a metallic finish work to your advantage. Berger Silk Glamor provides an ultra-smooth and glossy finish to the walls which last for a long time. The innovative Crystal Reflective Technology ensures high film strength as well as superior adhesion. Learn more about the luxury emulsion at https://www.bergernepal.com/product-detail/silk-glamor.

On the other hand, if you want to create a vintage or a laid-back look in your rooms, you can’t go wrong with eggshell and matte finishes. These types of paint finishes do not completely reflect light as metallic and glossy finishes do. As such, the partial absorption of light works wonders in creating a relaxed and easy-going aesthetic.

2) Prioritize longevity

It goes without saying that interior painting projects are a long-term investment for many people. As such, it pays to prioritise the longevity of the paint finishes to ensure that the newly-painted walls retain the look for a long period.

High-quality satin and glossy finishes are highly durable as they have better adhesion as compared to other finishes. These two paint finishes make a great choice in hallways, family rooms, and bedrooms. To give the doors and windows a rich and long-lasting finish, use an oil based primer before painting them.

3) Is it easy to clean?

Stains are almost inevitable and can lower the overall look of the walls. Accidental stains and build-up of grimes can be an expensive affair as they often require professional cleaning.

The odds of accidental stains are more in high traffic rooms in your home, such as the living room, kitchen, and hallways. Flat and matte finishes do not clean up well and, therefore, it’s a good decision not to use them in high traffic rooms. High-quality semi and high-gloss finishes allow easy cleaning. One simple hack to ensure stain-free glossy walls is to clean the marks as and when they occur using a mild cleaning solution.

Checklist: Everything You Need To Paint Your House

Painting your rooms by yourself is fun, and if you are new to it, trying a couple of times will suffice to get the hang of the process. However, it’s crucial to have all the supplies at your disposal in order to make your painting journey smooth sailing.

Here’s a checklist of almost all the painting essentials that you would need to transform the look of your house:

Preparation essentials

Preparing the walls is a must to achieve proper results. When visiting the store for making a purchase, make sure to include these painting preparation essentials in your shopping cart:

Scraper: Scraping off peels and cracks on the walls is a must to achieve a consistent finish. Doing this also helps to ensure the longevity of the new paint colors. Buy one or two pieces of wall paint scrapers to remove older paint.

  1. Sanding paper: After you are done scraping off the old paint, use sanding papers to smoothen rough textures on the walls and make sure that there are no bumps. It’s best to buy sanding papers in bulk; get your hands on a couple of packs of a dozen pieces.
  1. Soap-based cleaning solution: Scraping and sanding the paint often leads to a build-up of dirt and grease on the walls. Buy a bottle of soap-based cleaning solution to clean the walls and ready them for priming. The cleaner your walls, the better the primer will set.

Soap-based cleaning solution

  1. Masking tape: There are certain areas on the walls where you don’t want to have the new color painted. To make sure that the paint doesn’t bleed into those areas, use masking tapes. This type of tape comes handy in covering window/door trims, outlets, and hardware.

Masking tape

Painting essentials:

These painting essentials come handy after you are done preparing the walls:

  1. Paint tray: Dipping paint brushes and rollers directly into the paint can lead to a lot of spills. This, in turn, adds more to your post-painting cleaning chore. To avoid this, buy paint trays and use them to keep a few dabs of paint as and when needed during the painting process.

  1. Painting brushes: Painting brushes are the go-to choice for many; they are easy to use and are easily available. When shopping for new painting brushes, make sure to choose brushes of large as well as small diameter. Use large diameter brushes to paint the central part of the walls and use small diameter brushes to paint the edges with precision.

Paint Brush

  1. Paint rollers: Paint rollers come as a great option to paint quickly and maintain the consistency of the paint. If you are a beginner, go for rollers. Choose a roller that comes with replaceable sleeves. You can also choose patterned rollers to create interesting wall patterns.

Paint rollers

  1. Primer:  Prior to applying paint, it’s a must to apply 2 to 3 coats of primer on the walls; think of primer as the canvas. Allow 2 to 3 days of drying time for each coat of primer to achieve a rich look with the new paint.

Primer

  1. Paint: Lastly, buy paint colors of your choice and apply them on walls after the primer has fully dried. Just like the primer, make sure to apply 2 to 3 coats of paint to make the look last for a long period of time.
