Room Painting Tips For A Successful DIY Project

Painting or repainting a room will likely require a good chunk of money out of the budget especially if you’re hiring someone to get it done. If you have the time and you’re an avid do-it-yourselfer, you may want to do it instead. The experience can be both rewarding and money-saving. In the following, let’s talk about some room painting tips you can follow to ensure the success of the project.

First, you need to pick your paint. Of course, there’s a wide array of brands available out there. They vary in material, quality, and finish.

Oil-based paints can be harder to work with than latex, but they generally look great and they dry hard on wood. On the other hand, latex paints are easier to work with and clean up. They also go over everything without hassle.When it comes to quality, it is wise to go for high-end paints. There can only be several bucks of difference but their final product can be amazing.

As for the finish, it may be best to just choose either flat or semi-gloss depending on what you’re working on.

Purchasing a primer can also be one of the most practical tips on painting a room you can follow. If you are painting over a wall or ceiling you didn’t paint before, or you are applying oil-based over latex, using a good primer can save you a lot trouble in the future. You can also tint your primer so just ask your paint seller which would work best for you.

Brushes and roller covers are the other things you need to purchase for your painting project. Some people may not draw a line between expensive and cheap brushes, but the truth is they are not the same. More often, cheaper options shed and get deformed. They don’t hold paint nicely either. Hence, if you want the best results, go for quality brushes and roller covers even they cost more. Of course, if you don’t have a roller yet and a tray, you must purchase them too.
