Painting one or more rooms in your home can be an exciting project to take on. Not only do you get to re-envision the space you live in, but you may even transform a space that feels dull or drab into something vibrant and fresh.
Many homeowners take on a home painting project without realizing quite how much detail goes into such a task. Here are four home painting tips you’ll want to follow for better results:
- Test Your Colors – Rather than choosing the paint cards off the rack and trusting your gut about the outcome, you may want to choose several different colors and ask for samples to take home to try. You can see each of the different colors in the various types of light in the room you want to paint. That way, you’ll know which color more accurately matches what is in your mind’s eye before painting an entire wall and realizing you don’t like the shade.
- Choose the Right Type of Paint – Paint comes with different finishes, so it’s important to make sure you know what kind of result you want for your home. Are you looking for something shiny, a matte finish with little glare, or a type of paint that is easy to clean or won’t show blemishes? Determining the type of paint you want will ensure that you don’t need any re-dos after you’ve finished an entire area and don’t like the outcome.
- Choose the Right Brushes – One thing many DIY painters don’t realize is that there are hundreds of types of paintbrushes on the market. You need some for edging, some for painting large areas, and others for getting to nooks and crannies. You even need different types of brushes for different types of surfaces. You’ll want to make sure to choose the right brushes to ensure you get the best possible results.
- Hire a Professional – To be honest, you could spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on paint and supplies and still not feel confident that you are going to get good results by doing the project on your own. That’s where hiring professionals comes in!
