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?

Four things you need to do to prepare your space before you buy paint from luxury paint shops in South Africa

Buying paint is only a part of the painting process – you can’t forget about the preparation! Some people may have a tendency to jump into the painting process without ensuring the preparation is taken care of first, but taking the proper precautions to protect the rooms you are painting will definitely pay off in the end. It will also help reduce your chances of making a mess! Here are some things you should do before you buy paint from Warrior Paints:  Move all furniture into the centre of the room. Ideally, you want to move the furniture and everything else out of the room entirely, but if this isn’t possible simply move everything to the middle. Before you start painting, turn off any air conditioning or heating systems. If the walls you will be painting have any loose or flaky paint on them, sand the walls down first before applying any new coats of paint. Fill any nail or screw holes with caulk. Cover any electrical sockets with masking tape and turn off the electricity in the room if it’s possible. Put down a protective floor covering. This can be large pieces of plastic, a tarp, or something similar. Warrior Paints is not only a place where you can buy paint; we also have all the supplies you need to help you prepare for your paint job.

It all begins when you buy paint – how to make your new house yours!

If you’re a new homeowner then firstly, congratulations! Secondly, it’s time to buy paint! Deciding on paint colours for your walls may seem like an easy task at first but you’ll quickly find that there are thousands of choices and coming to a final decision can be tough. Warrior Paints has a few tips and tricks to help the decision making process a bit easier and our team of experts is always here to assist you and answer any questions. Important things to consider when buying paint: Certain colours give off certain moods. Warm colours like red, orange and yellow create a welcoming sense of warmth while darker colours can make your rooms appear smaller. Decide what you want each room to “feel” like and choose the colour that conveys that feeling. Make note of the items that are already in the room such as furniture, floors, carpets, rugs, artwork and other items. You don’t want to choose a colour that clashes with the items that are already there; rather, you want a colour that compliments them and pulls the room together. If you are buying paint for the exterior of your home, take into account the colour of your roof, your driveway and any other structures such as a patio or porch. Buying paint may feel like an overwhelming task but once you have a general idea of what you want, the possibilities are endless. Whether you know the exact shades you’re looking for or you need some assistance, come to Warrior Paints and consult with our professionals. We’re always happy to provide assistance and give advice.
