Those first signs of walls cracking up, peeling down, and there are dark patches on walls. These are the signs that your wall paint has gotten old. Old walls also pose as possible carriers of mold or dry rot, which is not good. If you could identify any of the features mentioned above, my friend, your home walls need painting. But before we start, there is one question to be answered, why do we Paint our Homes? Is it because it is YOUR home and the walls need to be protected? Or it is just another method to maintain and prevent your walls from wearing down? The simple answer is that your home is your space, one that defines your personality, your life, and determines the tone of your living, and that alone deserves some particular highlight. People may say it is vital to paint because it protects the walls. However, these blue painted walls show the tone of coolness and calm in you. So, what is taking you long? Shall we begin painting?
Let’s take a look if you are ready to get your home painted, more than if your home is ready to get painted!
Begin the acceptance that this process is long and will take quite a few days to finish. If you have specific allergies, make sure you have planned out ways to prevent triggering those.
You are moving on to your house. Before beginning to paint, decide whether it is just a wall or the whole house you wish to paint. If it is a wall and you think you can single-handedly do it, then begin with clearing out a 1/4th section of the floor attached to the wall for spreading a canvas cloth and painting. If you think that you alone cannot do it, contact any of the home painting companies. When you contact them, make sure you are well aware of the basics to avoid getting tricked. Also, prepare to spend some right amount rather than sticking to cheaper paints. The benefit of this is, these costlier paints are rich in oils and material accounting for longer life, whereas standard colors will wear off within months. It is better to choose a durable paint for your walls.
Next, cover your furniture with a cloth. Do not leave your furniture and other things bare while painting is going on. No matter how careful you plan to be, paints get out of hand and can sometimes leave a nasty stain. Cover your floors with canvas cloths as well. This will prevent the color from peeping through the fabric and splashing on the floor.
Before coating the walls, check with the company what primers they use. If given a choice, choose a tinted primer as that will provide you with a better base. Also, for practical as well as efficient work, use box paints. They have an even texture and can be easily stored.
You see, there are a lot of things you need to consider before getting your house painted, but the most critical question to ponder is, “are you ready to get your home paints?”
