Items Glam and Go Glossy

For a complex upgrade that will not break the bank, consider introducing high-gloss paint to your interiors. Anything from a coffee table for your walls will encounter an instantaneous transformation under the guise of the shiny and chic option — and with the right prep, a little patience and a free weekend, you may even make a few of those changes yourself.

Wondering what pieces of yours may benefit from high-gloss paint? Have a look at these photos to see where fellow Houzz members have introduced a small glow.

Coffee table. Punch up your living room with a brightly colored coffee table. Really make it stand out from choosing a contrasting color for your wall. Your guests may actually feel guilty sticking their feet on something this lovely.

Console. Consoles are usually found in hallways, and hallways are a great place to have a little fun with decor. A console in glistening paint will add a little eye-catching pizzazz for those walking through.

Lamp. Lamps aren’t simply for mild; they are also an opportunity to fulfill your general scheme. Have an old lamp which you feel is lacking in style? Give it a quick coat of high-gloss paint to get a piece that will stand on its own.

Hutch. I love the bold use of glistening fire-engine red with this hutch. It is a great complement to shelves of colorful books.

Side table. If you’ve got a rather monochromatic color scheme going on your seating area, add a some texture by transforming the side table with high-gloss paint. The combination of the complex piece with bamboo furniture is quite modern-retro.

table. If you want to find the kids to the dinner table, make it enticing! A dining table painted in high-gloss may not have them to eat their veggies, but at least it will be a treat for the eyes.

Mantle. Up the ante of your fireplace with a classy, glistening mantle. This is especially chic in this pastoral living room, and the interaction between the contrasting red of the couch and green of the mantle ignites the respective colours.

Knickknacks. Have some cool pieces you’ve picked up at flea markets which you’ve been intending to touch up? Give them the ultimate makeover with high-gloss paint. Go for an unexpected color, and you will have instant conversation pieces.

Bathroom mirror. Change the look and feel of your bathroom with a coat of high-gloss paint on the framework of your mirror. Guests will probably be too busy admiring your paint job to worry about their lipstick.


Kitchen cabinets. Tired of your cabinetry? Slap on some glow! The price will be a lot more difficult for your pocketbook, and the new look will be transformative.

Accent seat. Emphasize the”accent” on your accent seat by choosing a high-gloss paint. Choose a bright color so that it really pops.

Bathroom vanity. You do not require a super fancy vanity when you have a can of high-gloss paint nearby. The paint itself will create it equally fancy and timeless.

Walls. Turn your room’s style with high-gloss painted walls. The best part: High-gloss paint reflects light rather than absorbing it, so your room will feel equally chic and bright.

Ceiling. Insert an element of glow to the ceiling as well. Don’t feel as if you always have to decide on a vibrant color; high-gloss white is just as sophisticated.

Front door. Nothing provides an enticing welcome just like a front door decorated in high-gloss paint. That said, it’s time to get out your paint brushes!
