Are you considering painting your walls but don’t know where to start? Interior wall paints can completely transform a room but getting the look you want can be tricky without hiring a professional. In this blog post, we will provide some tips and tricks for painting your walls on your own!
Create a Plan
Before you start painting, it is important to take the time to plan your strategy. This means deciding which walls you will be painting, what colour or colours you want to use, and gathering all the materials you will need. Once you have a plan in place, it will be much easier to execute your project and achieve the results you are hoping for.
Prepare the Room
Once you have a plan in place, it is time to prepare the room for painting. This includes moving all furniture out of the way, covering any flooring or fixtures you don’t want paint on, and ensuring that the walls are clean and free of debris. If possible, open up all the windows in the room to ventilate while you are painting. In addition to this, ensure that you are using a paint with low VOC for your safety!
Select your Colours
Choosing a colour for your walls is the most fun step in painting, and one of the most important. You want to ensure that the colour you choose compliments the rest of your décor and fits the mood you are trying to create in the room. If you are unsure about what colour to choose, you can do a few things to help you decide. You can start by looking around your home and seeing what colours already exist in your home. This will give you an idea of the overall scheme of your home and what colours flow well together.
Tools & Supplies
One very important thing you can do when painting your walls is to be prepared with the right tools. This includes a good quality paintbrush, painter’s tape, drop cloths, and a ladder if needed. Having the proper tools will make the job much smoother and help you avoid potential obstacles.
