Painting Your Bedroom Properly in Cincinnati, OH.
In going through your home and seeing the ways in which you can make it look better, you may want to consider your bedroom.
This is surprising to some as they don’t think about their own bedroom as one that typically gets seen too often and so they aren’t clear that it too should look as good as possible — and in some cases, this means that you are going to want to paint it.
There are things that you can do to improve your bedroom painting such that it ends up looking a bit better and you have a bedroom that will be well painted for a number of years to come.
Let’s look at some tips and techniques for painting your bedroom properly in Cincinnati, OH.
1. Choosing A Good Paint Color
One thing that you’re going to need to do when you’re looking to paint your bedroom is to make sure that you have got a good color or colors ready for the painting process.
The last thing that you would want to do is to prepare to paint your bedroom fully only to realize that you have no idea what color or colors you want to paint the room, and then to have to spend quite a lot of time trying to figure out what is going to work for you.
Taking those paint strips that show you the approximate color isn’t going to do all that much for you, either – they are good but not nearly as good as getting small paint samples and then applying them to your bedroom walls — you’ll be able to clearly see how well the color or colors you choose will look in reality, regardless of how much or how little light you have on.
2. Protect Your Furniture
In looking to paint your bedroom, you should think carefully about how you are going to be sure to protect your furniture during the painting process.
This is significant because you don’t want to just paint without protecting your furniture at all — this is basically like trying to get paint on your furniture, which you may be able to surmise is quite difficult to get off once it is on and has had the time to dry.
A better thing for you to do is to make sure that you fully protect the furniture with things such as tarps and sheets – it will keep the paint off of your furniture.
You can alternatively choose to remove some or all of the furniture from the room and therefore avoid the problem entirely – but this can be quite difficult especially when it comes to your bed!
3. Clean Before Painting
You should know that you will need to clean your bedroom fully before you paint the walls, which may seem a bit confusing, seeing as you are going to be painting the walls and not any other parts of the room.
This is going to be important because if you don’t clean up the room itself, and especially if you don’t get the dust off of the floor, you may well see that dust later on when you are painting the walls.
Therefore, it’s a good idea to first fully clean the floor, remove anything that doesn’t need to be in the room (bits and pieces for example), and then vacuum to the best of your ability before covering the floor with either drop cloth or tarp and then thoroughly cleaning the surfaces that are going to be painted.
Make sure to allow time for these surfaces to dry before you move on with the next phase of the painting process.
