You need to double-check a couple of things before tackling a major paint job. The more prepared you are before you start this project, the better the results will be. In today’s article, Arrowhead Painting, the top residential painting company in our local area, discusses the important things you need to consider before an interior painting project.
If you want your newly painted rooms to look as good as possible, then you need to choose the right paint color. Remember to choose a shade that not only fits your sense of style, but also looks good under changing light levels. Consider taking a paint color quiz online to have a better idea of what to use. These quizzes usually have discerning questions that can help narrow down your paint choices.
Amount of Paint Required
A gallon of paint isn’t nearly enough to cover a whole room, so you’ll need to learn how much paint you’ll need for this project. There are paint calculators online that you can use. The more detailed ones ask for room dimensions, the number of doors and windows and more. For best results, however, we recommend asking an interior and exterior painting professional like us for details. Or better yet, hire us to quickly and easily paint your rooms for you.
Some homeowners prefer to paint their rooms themselves. These homeowners will need to budget their painting time carefully. If you go this route, don’t forget to factor in time for drying. If this is your first time, then you should pad out your time estimates as much as possible. DIY might save you some money, but we don’t recommend it. Our painting services can provide a much more consistent and beautiful result. We’ll also finish the job in less time.
