House Painting

Painting a wall is a process that we overestimate and usually give up with the thought of not being able to do it. As someone who painted a wall for the first time, I can easily say: “anyone can paint a wall”. In addition, painting a wall is not as tiring as you think, and it is also very fun. Thanks to the new generation of water-based paints, you can quickly change a corner of your home without getting contaminated with odorous chemicals such as thinner.

Unlimited color charts are now offered to you in the selection of wall paints. Even navy blue has dozens of shades. Apart from the color, you can also choose the brightness. Before you go to buy the paint, do not forget to take the measurements of the wall you will paint. You can calculate the amount of paint per square meter.

How Should I Prepare for Paint?

Before you start painting, tape any areas where you don't want the paint to smear with masking tape. Put a protective cover on the floor. Tape to protect skirting boards and plaster boards as well.

Is it necessary to apply a primer?

Applying a primer is important for the paint to be permanent. Also, if you are going to go from dark to light colors, a primer is a must. Therefore, your primer application is necessary for the paint to be long-lasting and smooth. Wall painting process is done in this way in general terms. When we look at the details, there are many details about how it should be applied from the brush to the surface.

First of all, the furniture in the room should be taken out and the rest should be covered before proceeding to the wall painting process. In this way, a comfortable application process can be passed.

Those who want to paint walls have various options in terms of brushes. Some of these include roller and spraying machines. Especially if paint is to be done with a roller, the excess paint must be taken with a roller grid. Otherwise, unpleasant images may appear on the surface. It is recommended to use a brush for painting in narrow areas.

Masking tapes can be used to prevent the paint from touching some parts during the painting process. In this way, windows, skirting boards or places close to the ceiling can be protected.

Glossy paints are generally difficult to apply, but those who want the paint to be long-lasting can also consider it because it is easy to use.

Applying the paint in two thin layers will help to get a better result.

Cracks and nail marks on the wall must be repaired before proceeding with the painting process. In this way, a smooth surface can be obtained.

The application surface must be cleaned of all kinds of dirt, plaster and paint residues. Detergent and water can be preferred as auxiliary products.

Attention should be paid to the instructions on the purchased paint. By following the necessary steps, the painting process can proceed smoothly.

If there is still paint left in the box after the painting process is finished, the lid must be tightly closed in order to use it later. If water-based paint is preferred, it should be stored at room temperature, out of sunlight.

The point that those who want to paint the exterior should pay attention to is that they do not perform this process in rainy or humid weather. Otherwise, undesirable results may occur.
