Things To Do Before You Start Painting


A lot of the time, people will be intrigued and eager to do their painting job, until they remember that there are things that need to be done prior to performing the painting job. It’s impossible to just jump straight into painting because the result of the completed painting job will be unsatisfactory.

If you want to do this painting project on your own, here are a few things you’ll need to do and consider before you can start splashing the colours onto the wall:

Prepare Then Paint

Never go straight into painting, painting is more than just brushing the colours onto the wall, it takes preparation before you can begin. Simple things like preparing your room, making sure that nothing is in your way when you’re painting or the paint may spill onto your furniture or the floors. You’ll also find that it’s so much easier to maneuver and you won’t have to step over or go around your couch just so you can continue your painting.

Know What Colours You’ll Be Using

Of course, the first thing you want to do before you paint is to pick a colour, it’s one of the fun processes before painting. But we highly recommend that after choosing a colour, you test it on the surface you want to paint on. This will allow you to see how the colour looks against the surface as sometimes, colours will appear differently when painted on.

How Much Paint Will You Need?

A lot of people will just eyeball it and assume that buying a tub or two will be enough. While it normally does work, it does usually leave you with more paint than you need and you’ll end up having to throw it out and it’s just a waste. That’s why measuring the space you’ll be painting on and having a rough idea of how much paint you’ll need will save you some money.

Brushing The Corners, Then Roll

When it comes to painting, some people may just jump right in and start rolling the paint on the surface. However, we do suggest that you brush the corners first when you’re using the roller, it usually does not cover the corners.

Don’t Shy From Investing

Not all painting materials will be the same in terms of their quality so it’s important that if you want to get a nice painting job done, you are using high-quality inputs. These inputs may be more expensive but if you want it to look good, you need to invest where necessary.
