  5. It is versatile as there are plenty of shapes and sizes that you can experiment with to arrive at an ideal wall design. It looks natural both in mid-century and modern settings.

  7. It blends well with the walls and decor of the room, resulting in a spacious vibe.

How To Paint Geometric Designs On Walls? (Say, a geometric triangle)

Well, it’s pretty easy! Just follow the steps below and transform your room into a stunning product. You’ll need gloves/mask for protection, sandpaper, special stencils, tape measure, scissors/razor, pen/pencil, spray cans of the desired colours, painter/masking tape. 

Step 1 – Create a blueprint of the intended wall paint design on paper or on an illustrating software. 

Step 2 – Clean and repair the damages on the wall (if any) using sandpaper so that the surface is smooth and even.

Step 3 – Sketch out the geometric pattern on the wall using the pen, tape measure for actual dimensions and the required stencils. Put painter’s tape wherever needed to complete your pattern but make sure you create clean and even lines. 

Step 4 – Before you start painting the wall, cover the floor and other furniture items with old newspapers or cloth to avoid any kind of drippage and spray stains. 

Step 5 – Wear the gloves and masks, and start painting using the color spray cans. Prime and paint your accent wall with a base colour first and then move onto applying other colours. 

Step 6 – Keep completing the geometric wall pattern one section at a time. 

Step 7 – Once the first coat of paint is still drying off, apply the second coat to cover any kind of inconsistencies and unfinished lines. It will create a bolder and vivid look.  

Step 8 – When the final coat of paint dries, remove the tape, touch up and your final product is ready. 

In case you’re planning to paint a geometric design on some piece of furniture, worry not. 

You can use the same steps as above. However, remember to remove all fixtures and hardware first and then prep and prime the piece. Once you’re done with all the steps, put all those fixtures back or replace them with quirkier ones if you wish.
