Using paint to create patterns on the walls is an easy way to add interest to a space, freshen it up and give a vibrant look.

Some choose patterns like polka dots and stripes, but chevron — or zigzag — is also a popular option.

Here’re some interesting ways homeowners have used the chevron pattern. You’ll be surprised at the variety of options it has to offer.

#1 Use various colours in a haphazard fashion. You’ll realise you don’t have to fill up all the spaces with paint to achieve the effect.

#4 Instead of paint, try wood or wood-look laminate. The variation in grains and shades gives the wall a stunning visual effect that’s not overbearing.
