Our Custom Faux Finishes in Plano, TX

Faux finishing is a creative technique that we use to create nuance and texture by replicating the feel and look of other surfaces. Some of these surfaces include marble, suede, or striped wallpaper, to name just a few. It takes a lot of creativity, professionalism, and patience, but in the end, the results will show you why it is worth it. Our faux finishing services can be divided into two broader categories – Basic and Advanced. Here is a look at some of them:

Basic Faux Finishes

Color Washing

Also known as a broken finish, our color washing method brings an old-world charm that is authentic. This faux finish makes it seem like the surface has been weathered by time, and yet is quite uncomplicated. We mostly use this finish for family rooms, master suites, dens, or kitchens to create great looks.


This is arguably one of the easiest faux finishing techniques that we use. Our experts at Euro Design Build use two or three different colors to add dimension, texture, and color to your rooms. We also use a glaze and natural sea sponge. Before beginning to sponge, this decorative method requires the application of a sealer or primer using a roller.

When it has dried, we then apply the faux finish by dipping the sponge into a paint or glaze mixture and softly dabbing it on the wall in a random pattern. To achieve a bolder effect, we use different color glaze. However, if you prefer a more subtle look, we can use a glaze color from a similar group as the base color.

Advanced Faux Finishes


The elaborate patterns, rich color variations, and veining of natural marble are the best qualities of this faux finish technique. It is a method that involves layering tinted glazes on top of a base color, mimicking the appearance of natural marble. This finish is best suited for tabletops, picture frames, fireplace surroundings, and walls, of course. The process takes time, effort, and expertise that Euro Design Build can provide.


This is another amazing faux finish if you want to achieve a weathered or aged appearance on your table, chair, and garage door, to name a few. Crackle faux finishing provides a attention-grabbing style and can create magnificent focal points in rooms. For this technique, we use two colors of paint, varnish, and a crackle medium to achieve the desired look – a distressed or ‘country’ appearance to the surface of your choice.

Faux Granite

Due to the sophisticated nature of the style, granite has become a very popular stone in the modern world. This technique combines sponging and speckling a mixture of glaze onto the surface, replicating granite patterns. The pattern variations and colors are limitless, meaning you have more freedom to express yourself with faux granite finishes. We usually recommend this finish for furniture, floors, countertops, and of course, walls.

Diamond Faux Finish

Diamond patterns in the entire house or just an accent wall can be elegant or fun, and casual. Our interior decorative experts have to carefully prepare and apply this finish to your hallway, dining room, vestibule, or bedroom, achieving an astonishing effect and excellent workmanship. We involve you in every step to determine factors such as the color, texture, or size of the diamond shapes. This ensures the final product reflects the look you were going for.

Strié Faux Finish

Real fabric wall coverings are fairly expensive and can cost you an arm and a leg, especially if you have extensive wall surfaces. Enter our interior decoration services using the strié technique. Our experts use the strié or dragging faux painting method, achieving an exquisite finish. Just as the name suggests, it is just dragging or moving the paintbrush over a colored glaze covering a base coat. The result is a high-end and luxurious look that is quite attention-grabbing.

Stripes Faux Finish

Our faux techniques at Euro Design Build can create a very interesting design in any room using stripes. Not only are stripes a classic, but our expertise in painting them is unequaled. Faux painting using stripes gives us more freedom to create personalized, original, horizontal, or vertical patterns that reveal your taste. They also allow us more freedom to match the colors to your décor.

Using our experience in the industry, we can assist you in choosing the type and size of the stripes and deciding whether to apply the faux paint on the entire room, accent wall, or any other place. Our team will also assist in choosing an appropriate color scheme. Most customers prefer two different shades from the same color group, but you can go bolder using contrasting colors if you wish.

Other Interior Design Finishes

Other interior painting options using faux technique include:

Verdigris Finishing

The word verdigris originates from the French and means ‘the green of Greece’. If you are looking to create an old, aged copper, or bronze accent, this is the best technique.

Natural verdigris form as cupric carbonate accumulates on weathering bronze, copper, and brass as they age. You can see this blue-green layer on historic spires and domes. Our interior and exterior painting team can give your home or property beautiful, soft, chalky, and ancient touch to your decorative metalwork.


This is one of the best faux techniques you can use on cabinetry, furniture, and any other surfaces that you would like to get a distressed or aged appearance. All our professional faux painters have to use is glaze and a base coat of paint. You can improve your home’s décor with a feature piece with a unique personality and beauty.

The technique is usually done with earth-toned glazes that are darker, layered over base coats with light colors like beiges, creams, or yellows. However, the vise-versa also creates a unique finish, depending on your taste and preference.
