House painting is perhaps the easiest way to change the overall look of the house even if
you are on a budget. This is not only cheaper than other options like wallpapering or
installing tiles along the length of the walls but is also something you can manage
yourself with considerable finesse. Here are 3 top and almost foolproof tips and hacks to
help you make your next painting project a success without much waste of materials,
efforts or your time.
1. Choice of paint- The first step towards successfully painting a house is to select the
right type of paint which largely depends on the overall finish you desire. There
are basically two types of paints available in the market- oil based paints and
water based paints. While oil based paints are perfect if you want to get a glossy
finish and washable feature, modern water based paints have less odour and dry
faster. If you are unsure of the finish you want in your room, choose a matte or
eggshell finish for the walls and satin finish for the trims. Make sure to only buy
high quality paints of the brand to get premium quality end results.
2. Quantity of paint- This might be a little difficult to calculate for someone who has
never painted before. What you can do is, roughly calculate the area of walls in
the room you are painting along with the areas of windows and doors and take
those measurements to the nearest hardware store in your locality; take help from
the store assistant regarding the quantity of paint you would require. Make sure
you buy at least an extra quart for touch ups.
3. Don’t forget the primer- Although it may seem like an extra investment, priming
the walls before painting would give you much finer results aesthetically as
compared to only using the paint. Advised by almost all professional painters in
Auckland; primer helps to get a consistent surface which also helps paint to adhere
to the surface more evenly. Moreover, 2 coats of a light coloured primer on the
walls before painting enhance the real colour of the paint.
After the completion of these three primary and important stages you can move ahead
with the actual painting of your room. If however, you wish to paint the complete
house, make sure you hire helpers or at least one professional painter to see you through
the entire process. For more info visit at https://tackk.com/ryt8un
