House Painting Tips

There are several things to consider when it comes to starting a home painting project. Even though this list may seem long, don’t let these home painting tips overwhelm you. They will help get the quality look you are hoping for!

First, it’s important to consider the weather – yes, even if you are painting inside. You’ll want weather that isn’t overly humid to allow your paint to dry. If you are painting a very small section indoors, this may not be a huge issue. Sometimes it’s nice to open windows when painting a big room, however, and dry weather is necessary to help your project progress in a timely fashion.

Before any painting begins, you’ll want to carefully check the entire surface that you’ll be painting. Any cracks or holes need to be filled and patched. The same goes for any areas of peeling or chipping paint. Once these imperfections are dealt with, you’ll want to meticulously sand the entire area. Even if you don’t have any problem spots to address, you’ll need to dust and clean the walls to help the primer and paint to properly adhere.

Time for Home Painting

When you purchase paint brushes, rollers, painters tape, and other materials, allow yourself to splurge. Professional-grade items do make a difference when it comes to your painting project. Don’t forget to pick up several drop cloths when you’re out picking up supplies; you’ll want to carefully cover anything you don’t want to stain. Another small step that is often overlooked is taking the time to remove all outlet covers and light switch plates – this will save you clean-up time at the end of your project!
