Most painting blogs talk about painting techniques, DIY ideas, and budget-friendly paint decorating ideas. While these topics do attract the audience, they may seem too common. With the increasing number of your competitions building painting websites, you would want your website to stand out from the rest. Whether you are a newbie in blogging or simply fresh out of ideas, here are some topics you can write about that could spice things up a bit.
- Go big or go home: Unique bold style ideas
One can never go wrong with traditional color schemes, but they may be too bland for some people’s liking. Your blog can introduce some bold style ideas for those people who are feeling adventurous in decorating their spaces. You can suggest which unique color combinations to use to make the rooms more dynamic and alive. Discuss the latest trends and tips in using vivid colors without overdoing it. Who knows, these ideas might inspire your readers to step out of their comfort zones, and they have you to thank for it.
- Beyond Beige: Color palette ideas
With different hues, tones, and shade, there are way more colors than the colors of a rainbow. You can use your blog to suggest a variety of color combinations that would match desired themes. Every once in a while, you can feature a trending color palette, especially the non-traditional ones, or even a color combination of your own. Educate your audience on how to make their own color palettes. This does not only show your creativity, but it also inspires your readers to think outside the box.
- Mix-and-match: Home décor ideas
A well-painted wall or an awesome color scheme is pointless if it doesn’t harmonize well with the items inside the room. Give your readers home décor tips like how to mix and match the wall colors with their existing furniture, or you can show them how to repaint the furniture to match a desired color palette. Tell them the things to consider when decorating a space, including the lighting and accessories and how they can make them blend well with their chosen color theme.
- A Sneak Preview: Highlight current projects
Sometimes you are too preoccupied with your painting projects that you don’t have the time to sit down and think about what to write about in your blog. Waiting for a certain project to finish before posting in your blog can take too long, and your readers might lose interest in your site. Well, why not post about the projects you are currently working on? Just like how movies have teasers and trailers, you can give your audience a sneak preview of your current projects. This would give them an idea on what to watch out for. It could hype them up and make them check your blog every now and then for the finished work. You might even get fresh ideas from your readers’ comments that you can use to improve your work.
- The makeover: Before and after posts
The idea of repainting doesn’t sit well with some people. In your blog, you can go on and on about repainting to change the “look” of a certain room but it will be hard to convince your audience to try it out if you only present them with abstract ideas. You have to show them something concrete, and there’s no better way to do this than posting “before and after” photos or videos of your makeover projects. That way, the readers would actually see how a little paint job could transform the overall “feel” of a room. This is also an effective way of showing off your painting skills and promoting your work.
There are countless of other ideas that you can write about, other than the ones mentioned here. Whatever topic you choose, just keep in mind that on top of promoting your work or projects, you can use your blog to educate people and inspire them to bring out their creativity. That would make your blog more special than the rest.
