In looking to paint a room such as a playroom, you’re going to have to think about some of the more important elements that go into what makes it a playroom, such as the fact that it’s not just your everyday average room in the house but one in which a lot of time will be spent by a younger audience.
Of course, there are ways you’re going to be able to paint your home, specifically your playroom, that are going to improve both the room itself and the process and cost of painting it.
Let’s have a look at some playroom painting tricks in Dayton, OH.
1. Cleaning Before You Paint
The first thing you’re going to want to do before you even get that paintbrush up for the first time is to make sure that you properly clean the surfaces that are going to be painted prior to painting them.
This is because you’re not going to want to paint a surface in the playroom that is dirty, even though your first instinct might be to think that the process of painting the room will make sure that the dust and grime on the walls won’t be seen – paint covers up everything, right?
This is not the case- what you’re going to have at the end of the painting process is a set of walls that are dirty but covered in fresh paint, and will be quite clear to you when you look at the walls that there is dirt under the coats of paint.
The best thing you can do is to make sure that you fully clean the surfaces that are going to be painted and then wait a good amount of time for the surfaces to fully dry.
2.Find The Right Paint For The Room
Another important thing that you’ll want to do is to make sure that you use the right kind of paint – and this means more than just using interior paint versus using exterior paint, of course.
You’re going to want to use paint that is easier to clean, which will make a lot of sense given that it’s a playroom and you can imagine how kids are going to be coming in with food on their hands that will somehow always end up on the walls.
If you make use of a glossier paint you will have an easier time getting the walls clean than if you use a paint that is flat, as it were.
3. Pick A Good Color Or Design
When you’re looking to paint your playroom, you really have two major options available to you in terms of what you’re going to be painting – either you’ll be choosing a color for your playroom walls, perhaps even more than one color, or you will paint some sort of design or a couple of designs.
If you take the route of making use of color rather than design, you should use colors that are more bright and lively in nature as they will be more conducive to the play experience — after all, you are going to have children in the room having a good time, and so the brighter and more fun the colors the more fun you can just imagine the kids having.
If however, you’re going to go with the design you should make sure that the designs are either more timeless so that the children will eventually know about them or perhaps more contemporary ones that are more popular with kids, perhaps even your own children – and after all, they’re going to be the ones spending the time in the room, right?
