Painting jobs are typically easy. However, when painting is done on walls in a space that has expensive furniture and flooring, the entire process can be quite challenging. If you begin a project properly prepared, less challenges will occur along the way.
Consider the Weather
During an indoor painting project, speed matters. If you don’t schedule a project strategically, the space that you’re painting won’t be fully accessible until after the paint completely dries.
The weather can help you accelerate a painting project indoors. When the temperature outdoors is above 60 degrees, it’s a great time to paint the walls because the heat can speed up the drying process. To ensure speedy results, you must keep all windows around a wall opened until the paint dries.
Use Professional-Grade Products
If you want impressive results, always use professional-grade paint supplies. Stiff brushes and firm rollers can help you coat layers of paint on a wall evenly, quickly, and efficiently. Cheap supplies are less effectively. For example, if you tackle a project quickly using a cheap brush, it could leave stray bristles on the wall.
Protect Surfaces That Don’t Require Paint
Because paint can fly or spill, it’s best to protect all vulnerable surfaces before starting a project. You can shield furniture and carpeting with tarps. To protect trimming on a wall, use a roll of blue painters tape.
