Painting your walls with a fresh coat colour is one of the best and easiest ways to spruce up your home, but some think that painting could be a difficult task that requires a lot of penny and manpower. This though should be no longer to be appearing after knowing some tips on painting that make your painting job an easy and a fun experience.
Before every painting, you have prepared your walls by scraping away any old layer old paint, removing wallpaper and sanding imperfections. Some protection on your furniture and fittings should be carried out before you start painting around. Simply trim over fittings with masking tape and cover up your big pieces, furniture with cloths or plastics.
Now is time to paint, always start painting from the edges first. Even though is not necessary to do so, but try to start with the edges between walls and between fittings because these parts usually required more concentration to avoid wanted paint on your fittings. So, start with the difficult part to make your job easier later.
Once the all edges are done, you can start to paint normally. Using a paint roller is strongly encouraged as it makes your painting process faster, smoother and required less energy. A good method or painting with a roller is to roll up and down on the wall with a vertical strip and make it thick. Once you have done the vertical strip, move the roller left and on the right diagonal across the stripes to spread evenly for an even finish. Of course, you can try another way which is apply a thin paint first all over the walls and go for a second layer as the finishing even layer. Happy painting!
