Essential Tips for All Indoor Painting Jobs

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Indoor painting is one of the most popular and effortless ways to spruce up any building, whether it is a business or residence, and it can be as simple as adding a little color to some walls. Many people opt away from using a professional painter for their indoor painting needs, but before you decide to do the same, read our essential tips for all indoor painting jobs.

A professional painter will tell you that the most essential part of any indoor painting is making sure that the walls are clean. Any grease or dirt left on the surface will affect the finish of your indoor painting and so it’s important to ensure that the walls are clean. Of course, if you use a professional painter, this is something they will do in standard home painting preparation. Be sure that you use the correct cleaning solution prior to home painting also, as otherwise you could damage the walls and prevent the paint from adhering.

Another point to note is that you will need to make sure that you fill any cracks or dents in the walls as these will also affect your home painting finish. Indoor painting is generally a more tedious task than exterior painting, as smoother walls mean that you will need to take care to remove any blemishes. If you are not skilled at filling cracks, it can pay to use a painting company, such as All Fresh Painting,  who will ensure a premier home painting surface finish.

Many people also underestimate the tools that are required for successful home painting. For example, an interior painting job will require not only a high quality paint brush, but also good rollers, tape and edging tools and the correct cleaners. Often, once you have added up the cost of these products, it is cheaper to employ a professional painter who will also provide the highest quality indoor painting finish.

When you have completed the preparation, it’s time to begin your indoor painting. Make sure that you use sweeping strokes in many different directions so as not to leave any streaks. In addition, it’s important to keep an eye out for drips and marks that your paint brush can leave behind. This is especially important for indoor painting jobs where the light can reveal many blemishes.

Of course, many people find home painting, and especially indoor painting to be quite daunting. Many also find that contacting a professional painter can be much more cost effective than they had imagined, not to mention the fact that they will do all the indoor painting prep and providing you with the professional finish that you are looking for.

Interior Painting for Cost Effective Modernization

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Interior painting is perhaps the most cost effective method of modernizing your home or business through decoration, but of course most people don’t really understand how they should choose the best color scheme for their interior painting. Below, we provide some tips to get the most out of your interior painting experience.

1. A good painting company, such as All Fresh Painting, will help you decide how you would like the area to feel so that your interior painting, or even exterior painting, uses colors that complement your desires. For example, warm colors like red and ochre can provide a warm and welcoming feeling which is ideal for house painting. In contrast, blues and purples can provide a calm and relaxing interior painting effect, which can be ideal for many commercial painting applications.

2. A painting company will also be able to recommend the best accent colors for interior painting and exterior painting. What this means is that instead of your wall painting being one solid color, the painter will paint accents such as window surrounds in a complementing color to provide the best finish for your home or business.

3. Using a professional painting company, such as All Fresh Painting, can also help take the confusion out of interior painting. Nowadays, there are many different types of paint available, and your painter will be able to recommend the best substance to suit your interior painting needs. For example, some people will require their home painting to be washable for easy maintenance, while others will require low allergen levels to be emitted from the paint. Talk to your painting company so they can recommend the best paint for you.

4. Of course, one exciting trend in paint recently has been the number of special decorative finishes that  painters can apply to your interior painting. For example, you may wish to paint a feature wall with a suede effect, or what about a metallic paint to add some sparkle to your interior painting? There are many different options available for interior painting finishes.

5. Lastly, if you are unsure about the color scheme your interior painting should have, you can talk to your painter and have them recommend the color scheme that would best complement your home and create a flowing theme throughout.

Interior painting and exterior painting are some of the lowest cost methods of modernizing your home. Call All Fresh Painting today for advice about how painting can modernize your house or office within your budget.
