Painting interior walls of your home is the perfect way to transform your dull home into fresh, lively and rejuvenated abode.
But, this painting can become a nightmare too when you are not careful while painting.
When I had a painting in my home, there were many confusions, and I was completely confused to choose the perfect way to paint my wall so that it could be utterly impeccable.
But, with a lot of searches and consultation with home painting experts, I came to know about the proper procedure to paint wall flawlessly.
I learned many valuable things that must be considered while having wall coloring in your home.
So, I asked my painting contractors in Cape Town to apply these things while coloring my home. And, the result was impressive and mind-blowing.
I understand that coloring the wall of a home is a really very critical task. Many things need to consider while getting wall coloring in your home.
But, with the proper procedure, you can have the unblemished wall painting.
Therefore, to have an amazing home painting, you must ask your painting contractors to apply these tips.
Here are the essential things that you should consider while going for a home painting:
1.Prepare the surface you need to color
It is the first and foremost things that every home painter must do before starting the painting of your home.
So, you first correctly need to prepare the surface that you have to paint. This means that you need to do scraping, sanding, patching and then you need to fill all the holes, cracks, dents, and surface imperfection.
If you do not prepare the surface, you may get cracks, bubbles, uneven surfaces and many flaws like these. So, you must perform this before going for wall paint.
2.Tint your primer
Priming ceilings and walls are significant whenever you are going to paint the dark color surface or new drywall.
Primer performs the essential function such as it blocks the stain from bleeding, allows one-coat paint coverage, and the most important are that it enhances paint adhesion.
I also asked my professional painters to apply primer for color finishing by adding a small amount paint with the primer.
This creates a great touch of finishing as the final coat.
3. Have canvas to paint rather than plastic
Plastic drop provides an affordable way to protect the floor and for better furnishing.
But, you can have more advanced features with canvas. Canvas is exceptionally durable that smoothly lays flat and present no slippery surface.
Canvas drop cloths can be easily folded around doorways and corner which cannot be done with plastic sheeting.
Most plastic drop cloths need to be tossed after using while canvas drop cloths may last a lifetime.
4.Use extension pole
Just forget about that stepladder and have a telescoping extension for your paint roller.
Extension poles are available in various lengths where you can have the maximum size of 18 feet.
But, extension pole with 18 to 36 inches is perfect to paint the room having the ceiling at the height of 8 to 9 feet.
While shopping extension pole, you should look that it has soft, rigid metal core and nonslip grip. And make sure that threaded pole end is of metal.
5.Use the paint grid instead of tray
If you want a fast, neater, and better approach, use paint grid. A paint grid is merely a rectangular, and rigid metal body or plastic screen that nails over the bucket rim.
So, just fill the half bucket with paint and hang the grid inside the bucket. Now, just dip the roller into the paint and roll it against the network in the bucket. This will remove the excess paint, and so your painter can have a smooth painting.
6. Store it for a night
If your wall painting is done for that day, but still you need to paint for tomorrow, you don’t need to go for that hectic process of cleaning paint-roller sleeves or paintbrushes.
Instead of that, you simply need to brush the excess paint and then tightly need to cover it with plastic wrap.
After this, you simply need to store these wrapped brushes and roller in the refrigerator. Now, use it freely for next day painting.
These are the essential things that can help you have the wonderful and error-free wall painting for your home.
However, if you are looking for such painter contractor who could have these skills, you can do an online search for the painter contractor in your area.
This way, you can have the best painter for your home.
