Top 7 Things to Consider Before Painting the House

Painting your house is a quick way to transform your space from mundane to inspiring. Home interior painting brightens the interiors and welcomes new energy to your home. Interestingly, the market offers a vast range of paint colours to suit individual styles, giving home painters many options to choose from.

Before you make a statement with some splash of colour through home painting, here are the top five things you should consider before painting your house. 

1. PREP YOUR WALLS FOR PAINTING WORK

Discolouration of walls over time is inevitable, and it could also be one of the reasons for you to consider painting your walls. Take care to clean the walls properly before applying the paint. Shift the furniture and decorative material in a separate room to make painting work easier.

2. WEATHER WARNING BEFORE PAINTING YOUR HOUSE

Choose your paints carefully as not all brands offer paints that perform in high or low temperatures. Although most paints have weather-resistant properties, it is better to choose a day that is not too hot or cold to carry out the job. Also, be mindful while painting the house exteriors in the rainy season. You do not want the rain to mess up the fabulous colour.

3. PRIMER POWER FOR HOME PAINTING

A good primer ensures adhesion of the paint accurately to the wall, adds additional protection and increases durability. In addition, it fills the holes and cracks and acts as a solid base for the painting work. 

4. PERFORMANCE OVER PRICE FOR PAINTING YOUR HOUSE

Focus on the quality of the product rather than the price tag. You wouldn’t want to invest in a brush that leaves stroke marks or a paint that wears out in a few days. For example, a quality product might cost more but sustain for longer than a cheaper alternative that might need a repaint within a year. Opting for the right tools can be a game-changer for home painting. 

5. PAINTING TECHNIQUE FOR HOME PAINTERS

Always paint your walls from top to bottom. A good tip for home painters is to start from the ceiling and then paint the bottom. Paint from one wet surface to another to avoid lap patches. If this is not possible, paint on a previously painted or dried surface. Moreover, use a roller after brushing for a smooth flat surface.

6. BEING PATIENT FOR PAINTING THE HOUSE

Painting the house calls for immense patience. Watching one coat dry is a tiresome process. One might feel like jumping to another coat when the first coat has not dried off properly. Instead, give the first coat the desired time (usually mentioned on the paint package) to dry and avoid any mishaps in the final finish.

7. PROFESSIONAL PAINTER OR DIY HOME PAINTING?
