Tips that will make you interior painting perfect
Ensure you have enough time
The biggest mistake most people make when they do not hire a professional interior painter is the rush to get the job done. When are in a hurry to get done with the paint works, you tend to cut corners hence making more mistakes. Instead of rushing, make sure you have enough time to do the job. This way you have a guarantee that you will take your time when painting your home interior and be careful to avoid any mistake.
Wash the walls
Most people think that only the exterior wall have to be washed before painting, but this step is often forgotten when it comes to interior painting. The interior walls also accumulate a lot of dirt and dust especially when there is trimming on the wall. You have to clean the walls thoroughly and allow them dry before you apply the first coat of paint.
A fresh paint coat may sometimes easily go over the existing paint. At times it calls for two coats to do this which may make the paint to look darker than you intend. You can pick up a primer to avoid having such issues when painting your interior walls. Home improvement shops sell paint of high quality with an inbuilt primer which makes sure you only do one coat.
Avoid spreading the job over many days
You may think you have all the time when doing your interior painting. This is however not true since if your paint one room within a day and spread the work on the remaining room for weeks or several days then the paint be different colors. It is usually not noticeable with light colors and depends on the paint you use. Try to do all the painting works in a day’s time if possible to avoid such incidences.
Ensure that you spread the paint evenly on all the walls if possible. If one part of the wall has more paint then again it results in two different colors on the wall. The areas with more paint will seem darker than the other areas. This may seem too much work, but it just takes some thought and time to ensure your interior looks as though it has been painted by a professional painter.
