What is a Faux Finish?
Faux is a French word for false. When an experienced painter creates a faux finish the surface imitates another material such as wood or marble.
Benefits of Faux Painting
There are more benefits to faux finishes the just saving money:
- The finishes give you a great deal of versatility
- An excellent option for an accent wall as it can incorporate multiple colors to pull a room together
- When done by seasoned professionals armed with proper sealing techniques, a faux finish can keep its pristine look longer than some of the materials they imitate.
- As it adds the illusion of texture, a faux finish can make a small space feel bigger than traditional, single color paints.
The Styles and Finishes We Can Use for Your Home
We have developed a variety of techniques that can be used to evoke specific styles, time periods, or moods – all with the swish of a brush or sponge. After applying the technique of your choosing to your Chicago home, we will then apply a glaze: which is a thin, translucent film of color that is painted over a base coat, and is used to preserve the paint. From old world finishes, to contemporary styles, we offer a variety of techniques that we can apply to any room.
We can use faux finish techniques on most paintable surfaces, whether they be for walls, ceilings, cabinets, build ins or ornate wood pieces.
We can create faux finishes in:
- Metallic paint and finishes

- And more!
We also carry a large variety of wallpaper patterns with faux finishes to maximize the available options for our Chicago customers.
