If you’re thinking of updating the look of your place or you want to give life to your new sanctuary, colouring your room can inspire you a lot. After all, a splash of colour could work wonders for an otherwise dull living space.
Before the painting begins, though, you should hold down those brushes first—you should take note of these reminders. Barker-Whittle Master Painters & Decorators shares some of the things you should do before having your room interiors painted
Inspect the Area to Be Painted
If the walls or the area of the room has been painted before, you should do a quick inspection to see any unwanted paint that has not been removed yet. This also lets you evaluate what kind of look you want to achieve. Look under the carpet, tiles and the floor to find any paint spots. Search for visible scratches on the wooden areas as well.
Check Contents of the Room
Don’t get paint all over your furniture and ornaments when painting your room! Avoid this mess by checking the contents of the room. Before moving your stuff, search for any cracks or cuts on any of the furniture. Watch out for the “hills” in the carpet that may cause accidents or interruption when moving your stuff across the area. Take out any decorations hanging or sticking on the spot to be painted, whether it’s on the wall or the fireplace.
Replace/Repair Damaged Items
Since you’re moving your items to place them again in the room once the painting is done, it’s the right time for you to consider replacing or repairing the items you found to be damaged after careful inspection of the room. Ditch the flimsy or loose furniture that may fall apart or may serve useless when updating the look and feel of your space.
Apart from the tips above, you can come up with great ideas to prepare your room for a painting renovation by consulting with interior painters, so your needs will be aligned with the new look that you want to achieve.
