How to paint your home for show day

How to paint your home for show day   Selling your home is a big deal and can be quite stressful for a homeowner. You want to make sure you get the best price for your home and the only way to do this is to ensure that your home looks its best. Many realtors advise home owners to invest in interior house paint when they are thinking about putting their homes on the market.  We’ve rounded up a few important things that you should know to make sure the job is as quick and painless as possible:   Buy enough paint One mistake that homeowners make is not buying enough paint, which results in multiple trips to the paint store. To make matters worse, they forget to get the exact colour code and end up buying a slightly off-colour shade to the one they started with. Talk to a paint supplier about the amount of paint you will need so that they can make the calculation for you. If you are mixing paint yourself, mix several cans in one bucket so that you have a consistent paint colour.   Trims first Wondering which part of an interior room to paint first? Start with the trimmings, then move to the ceiling and do the wall last.   Avoid lap marks Inexperienced painters often make the mistake of painting smaller sections of a ceiling or wall, which can lead to lap marks. In order to avoid lap marks, roll the full height of the ceiling or wall.   Remember the tools Besides rollers and brushes, remember to buy either cotton or plastic drops to cover your furniture.   Keep it neutral Remember that the person buying your home might have their own interior décor ideas, so don’t opt for funky colours that might not appeal to them.   Need interior house paint?

Acrylic house paint means less mess, less smell and fantastic results!

Acrylic house paint is becoming an increasingly popular choice for home decorators, for several reasons. We want our houses to look their best and reflect our personalities, but we also want the job completed quickly and with minimum hassle. So why choose acrylic house paint? Low odour. This paint has lower odour than any other paint and this odour will disperse faster, so you can use newly painted rooms sooner. Low odour is especially characteristic of eco-friendly acrylic paints, so they are a great choice if paint odour really affects you. Faster drying time. Because these paints are water-based, they dry very quickly. This is especially great if you need to move into these rooms soon or if you need to apply multiple coats of a colour. Less mess. Acrylic house paint is very low mess, as it can be cleaned away using soap and water. This makes it the perfect choice for home DIY, as any messes can be easily wiped away. It’s still advisable to cover furniture and flooring however, as it will adhere to material and wood as soon as it dries. Wide variety of textures and effects. These paints are available in an incredible variety of colours, textures and effects, so there is no way that you won’t find the perfect product to get the look you want. From eggshell emulsions, matt and low sheen finishes to the popular suede effect paint; there is everything you could want and more. Available in eco-friendly ranges. As technology for producing paint has improved, so have suppliers and customers looking for products that are produced in an environmentally aware manner. These products are also safer to use in the home and are a great choice for painting bedrooms, babies’ rooms and rooms for the elderly. They are also safer to work with since they are very low odour and give off the smallest amounts of chemical emissions.
