Home improvement projects are important if you want to keep your house looking fresh and up to date. Painting is one of the easiest ways to improve the value and appearance of your home.
Here are a few tips if you are considering painting the interior of your house.
Since there are so many paints on the market these days, it’s important to choose the right one. The two main ones are oil-based and water-based paints, but these come with a variety of finishes like matte, eggshell, satin or semi-gloss and gloss paint. Dulux Wash & Wear products are ideal for a family home.
You want to buy the best quality paint that falls within your budget. The more expensive paints usually have a llonglasting and thicker protective coat, as well as a variety of colors.
Even though the small print on the label may seem insignificant, do not ignore it. There is a lot of helpful information on it such how to prepare the surface or the correct temperature that the paint should be applied. Before you actually start painting, read the label!
You need to clean off the walls if you want the paint to properly stick to the surface. This is also a good time to fix any small holes or dings in the wall. Make sure you let the putty dry then sand it off.
If you see any old paint that is flaking or peeling, make sure to scrape it off before you paint. Any wooden surfaces will need to be primed before you can paint them but this is not likely for most interior walls.
When you start painting, make sure you begin at the top. First paint the ceiling, then move to the walls.
