You need to look for quality services, and Paint In Color is one such company that can promise you the ‘quality’ you are looking for. We offer you a choice of different contractors; this can be design painting contractor or the whole home painting contractors.
How to Paint a Room
Knowing a few things can help you turn dread into success when painting interiors of a home.
- Prepping a Room
Interior room painters of a well reputed company like Painters in Color, will take the trouble of preparing the interior space before they start painting the interiors. Most of the room that is to be painted will be emptied with utmost care and caution.
The large furniture pieces will be moved to the center of the room and these will be covered with old sheets or probably, old newspaper, or drop cloths or curtains.
The wall will then be wiped off all the dust and dirt. Though this is not visible to the naked eye, there is a lot of dust on the walls. The paints can then adhere well to the walls.
Spackling is used for filling any cracks or holes. The window trim outlet covers, switches and adjacent walls are taped off. An experienced and qualified home painting contractor will ensure that the floors are covered with newspapers or drop cloths.
- Testing the Paint
It is difficult to determine how a specific color will look on your walls. Though our house painting contractor will advise you on the different shades, but the final decision is yours.
You can always ask for sample paint and paint only a small part of your wall. Let this dry and see how this looks in daytime as well as under the light. Only when you are sure, you can give the green signal to our painters.
- Painting a Room
Let the color flow in your home. It is important not to fear different colors or else you will be choosing only whites and off-white for the walls of your home. Trying out different colors can allow some change in the room. Dark colors can add texture and depth to the room, especially if the room has high ceilings and is very large.
For a small room, on the other hand, light and bright colors can give this a feeling of openness. This also allows the rooms seem large. Color is ‘fun’ so you need not get scared of adding this to your home.
- Choosing the Finish
Besides the color, the sheen and the finish can also make a big difference to any room. High gloss paints are not only durable but easy to clean but the ‘negative’ of this is that they tend to highlight the imperfections on the walls.
The interior room painters at Paint in Color have enough and more experience in dealing with different finishes and make the effort of guiding you.
A flat paint finish is able to conceal the imperfections, but is prone to damage. The best option that works out is the eggshell finish. This is easy to clean and also provides some sort of a gloss, does not highlight the imperfections and is not prone to damage.
Paint in Colors aims at customer satisfaction. So, even after the walls have been painted and you are not satisfied with the color choice, you can always ask for a change, or you also have the option of leaving one wall with the specific color and changing the colors of the other walls.
How Much Should I Pay a Painter upfront?
Painters do ask for an upfront payment of 20 to 30% of the total cost of the job. All you need to do is check the rules and regulations of the state before deciding. A painting job costs can be worked out only after you have made up your mind on certain factors.
