A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for any room of your house! Give your existing shade a lift or paint an entirely new color. This little change can help you bring new excitement into your home. With so many paint color options, there is something for everyone these days, from bold to very light neutrals.

We know that painting isn’t always easy or on the top of your list of fun, so here are some tips to help your project go as smooth as possible. And if you don’t want to do it yourself, give us a call!

Painting Prep

You will need to move all the furniture to the middle of the room and cover it with plastic or move it completely out of the room. Next you will need to apply blue painting tape around all your frames and trim, remove outlet covers and doorknobs, and patch any holes in the walls. Doing these things first before starting to paint will ensure a better outcome and more satisfaction with your completed project.

Picking Your Paint

There are so many paint colors to choose from today that it can be a little overwhelming when you are faced with the decision. Visit your local paint store and pick up some samples. Then check to see how they match all the elements of the room you are painting and in different light. Once you choose the color you will need to choose the type of paint – gloss, semi-gloss, flat, etc. This is something your local paint store professional can help you with.

Clean Up

We all try so hard to avoid the paint drips, but it is inevitable that they do happen. Make sure to have rags and cleaning supplies near you to wipe them up quick. Once you are done painting you will want to clean all of your brushes and rollers so you can use them again in the future. Lastly, be sure to keep some of the extra paint around for future touch-ups.

Remember, if doing it yourself just isn’t your style, we are always here to help!
