4 Easy Tips Before You Begin Your Next Painting Project | Washington DC

Home painting projects are among some of the easiest and most rewarding jobs a homeowner can do. Not only does a fresh coat of paint renew and refresh, it brings a sense of pride to all who contributed.

So if you're ready to start your next painting project, but aren't quite sure where to begin, then this post is for you.

Here are 4 easy tips to get you started on your next painting project.

1. Choose a scheme before you begin, not just a paint color. Use mood to help pick the right feel and look for your new room. Paint ceilings a light color to enhance a room's size, and do the opposite to add coziness. Use this same idea for wall colors.

2. Pick your highlighted aspects prior to beginning. Do this so that accents are in the spotlight, while things that you want to hide remain as an afterthought. Look at your room's physical layout, if there are exposed bricks, conduits, or radiators, paint to appeal to the eye, and hide what doesn't fit well.

3. Pick a paint finish like you would a color. When shopping for paint, consider other aspects of the process as well. The paint department is full of glosses, faux finishes, and textures to set your room apart. Also, to bring your room into a brand new light, add a final coat to "finish" off your new, relaxing room.

4. Hire a professional to get it done quick and right. A professional with years of experience in painting and papering can really lend a helping hand when times are tough, or when you simply don't have the time to finish. Plus, for the jobs that seem impossible, a professional painter delivers on all fronts.
