Start by talking about whether you want to look at the completed product and note that you’re not all having four walls of the same paint.
The first thing you need to do is to gather all the materials you need and decide how much paint you need to purchase. To measure the total square footage, begin by measuring the surfaces you’ll be painting. To calculate the overall surface area, just subtract the distance by the height of a strong wall. For a roof, door or decoration you can take the same method, such as baseboards and moulding. If you are painting them in the same colour as your walls, apply to your total some square footages.
You need these items to start painting:
- Paint roller
- Paint roller extension pole
- Spare clothes
- Paint tray
- Painter’s tape
- Putty knife
Choose The Paint
There are a lot of different companies that are offering different types of paint quality and different shades. It is up to you what will suit your room if you have furniture than the shade should complement it. Moreover, it is very important to know what type of colour would look good in both day and night times. Once you have decided the type and colour you want, next is to check is in your room. If you live in a cold place then going for warmer shades would be better for you and vice versa. If the room is small in size then you should use brighter and cooler colours with an ample amount of lighting to not make it look suffocating.
Prep Your Room
Nobody wants to get their furniture ruined and so you have to make sure you empty the room, get rid of all the furniture that is in that room. If, for instance, the space is too small and you can’t get the furniture out then get it assembled in the middle of the room, away from the walls, cover it up with either dropping cloths or plastic sheets. Take a roll of painter’s tape and add it tightly to the edges of the corners of the house, base and crown mouldings, and door and window enclosures, using a putty knife to seal as required. To shield outlets and switches from paint drips, cut outlet and light switch covers and add painter tape.
Clean the Walls
Paint does not stick to a dusty surface as well (thinking stains, soot, ashes, and cobwebs), so first, use a Swiffer-type mop to dry-clean the walls. Wipe down any additional-grim sections with a wet sponge or cloth; a ladder might be required to climb up.
The main event
Draw a two-inch line across the edges of the woodwork and the roof with an angled brush or a sponge tool, which can be tapped off. Instead, use a paint tray and a roller to fill in the central unpainted area — the wrong device may add too much or too little colour) in alternating W- or M-shaped strokes for better colour distribution.
Ventilation is a must!
Make sure the room you are painting is well ventilated, use fans and windows for this purpose. This will elevate the drying process, your paint will dry comparatively quicker.
