In any case, we have compiled some of the best tips on how to paint your home’s interior like a pro. Using these tricks, you can make sure that your job is a success.
Step 1. Plan your approach
Think about how you want the outcome would look. Are you aiming for a fun vibe or a bold interior? Do you want to have an airy feel for your indoor atmosphere? You should also consider how you would want to accentuate your interior. Do you want to highlight your moldings? Or do you want a uniform shade for all? The reason for this is that the type of paint and other painting materials will depend on these choices.
Step 2: Measure your home to know how many galloons of paint you will need
It’s important to know the approximate size of your room, so you will know how many gallons of paint you will buy. If you’re not sure how to take measurement, you can always call for a professional to help you do it. An easy way to do it is to take the whole measurement of the room and deduct the windows, door, and moldings from the whole space.
It is also worth noting that the type of color you want to achieve will affect the amount of paint you will need. For example, if you want to whitewash a gray wall, then you will definitely need an extra galloon of white paint or even more to totally cover the previous color. Moreover, if your wall is textured, you should also buy extra galloons of paint to fully cover the textured surface.
Step 3. Just like any other painting projects, you need to have the right materials to get your job started. Depending on the choices you made and the outcome you desire, you may need a few or all of the of the materials below.
Step 4. Prep the room and begin your paint job
To prep your interior space, you need to get rid of the sofas temporarily. If you think it will cost a lot of time and effort, then you can just cover them up with plastic. Cover the moldings if you want a contrasting paint color for your wall and moldings. Start painting on the edges and use small to medium brush to reach conspicuous areas. Use a roller for wider spaces. Bigger rollers will help cover more area at once but you need to ask your paint provider for advice.
Step 5. Keep proper ventilation to dry the area.
Keep windows open if possible, so your paint can dry easily. It would be nicer if you have a ceiling fan but don’t turn it on full mode, as it would cause your paint to bubble. In any case, try to paint when the weather is warm and sunny. Cold weather days will cause the paint to dry slower.
