5 Mistakes People Make With Interior Painting Projects
With the cold air settling into New England, many homeowners are refocusing their to-do list indoors. For example, interior painting is one of the top fall projects here at Painters Etcetera. While our experts are here to assist every step of the way by providing the highest quality service and craftsmanship, there are still a few things you should know. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the top five mistakes homeowners make when tackling an interior painting project.
Don’t settle for any interior painting company.
One of the most costly mistakes you can make is investing in the first painting company that tops a search engine list. Instead, take your time to do some research, read reviews, and ask around. Be sure the company you are considering is reputable, experienced, and most of all, highly recommended.
Never choose your color too quickly.
Another costly mistake that many homeowners undergo is choosing their new wall color too quickly. Instead of making a hasty decision, apply a few sample colors in the area you intend of painting – and wait. Why? Most rooms experience a varying light cycle throughout the day. How a color looks first thing in the morning is different than midday and at night. By sitting on it, you can be confident that your result will be one you love instead of scrambling to repaint once again.
Always consider your furniture and décor.
Sure furniture and décor are replaceable. However, unless changing redesigning your home is in the near future, you’ll want to consider the colors you are working with. For example, if you are painting your dining room which has a dark wood and curtains, choosing a dark color for the walls may result in a dreary vibe. In this example, a lighter/brighter color is probably the better choice.
Take the time to prepare your walls.
While our team is here to assist, we also understand that many folks appreciate a good DIY project. If this sounds familiar, please take the time to prepare your walls. All too often we hear the stories of homeowners grabbing a brush and getting to work. However, without the proper preparation, your efforts may end up being wasted. Always clean your walls and make needed repairs before diving in with the new paint.
Always use tape.
Even professionals make mistakes. So if you’re considering a DIY painting project, do yourself a favor and tape. That said, be sure to purchase painter’s tape – masking tape or other wide tapes are not the same. Professionals invest in the highest quality tape. You should too.
