Whether there’s a newborn baby or just a new taste in style, everyone’s going to have to paint a bedroom at some point in life. Painting a bedroom can be time-consuming and takes a lot of patience. Many say painting can almost be as much of a hassle as moving, and at times overwhelming. However, with the right supplies and preparation painting a bedroom can be something quick and easy. All the painter will need is some blue masking tape, an old sheet or plastic to protect the floor, a mixing stick, paint brushes, and rollers.
The next step, and the most important step, is picking out what color paint your going to use. If it’s a baby’s room a soft blue is always a good choice because it’s calming. Or if it’s for a newlywed couple a red would be good to represent the excitement of a new life together. These simple steps will help create the perfectly painted bedroom that we all picture. Painting a bedroom includes proper preparation and execution of the steps. Preparation is key when painting a bedroom. Moving everything out of the bedroom is probably going to take the longest.
Most would suggest getting a friend to help. The painter will need to take all the pictures off the walls and the furniture has to be taken out, or pushed to the center with a sheet covering it. Taping off the bedroom is one of the most critical steps. The painter is going to want to tape the plastic or sheet to the floor so that there are no accidents. Next, the window trimmings and the mantels will need to be taped off and any other touching items that don’t want to be painted as well. After everything’s been taped off, it’s almost time to start painting!
But, before the painting can begin, the paint is going to have to be mixed up. Mixing helps to blend the color more and leave the walls with a nice, smooth coat of paint. Now that everything is ready to go, it’s time to find the right place to start painting. Most people start around the edges such as the windows. A small paint brush will be perfect for this job. The painter can use its tiny bristles to get into those small corners and tight fits. It’s best to just dip the paint brush into the bucket once, and then wipe off the sides on the edges in case of any dripping paint.
Brush strokes should be long, nice and even. After finishing the trimmings, the painter may want to use a paint roller to fill in the larger areas on the walls. Once the first coat is applied, step back and let it dry. When the wall is finally dry, a second coat is usually applied to fill in all those spots that may have been missed. At last the painter is left with a marvelous paint job. As you can see, with the right preparation and following these simple steps, will lead to a beautifully painted bedroom. Although this may all seem like a breeze to go through, many still make mistakes.
Don’t worry, there’s always room to make mistakes! If the painter gets a little paint on the ceiling, it can be easily removed with a wet rag and a little scrubbing. If that doesn’t work, some flat white paint will do just the job. Hopefully everyone will get that perfect finish that’s wanted. Now that one bedroom is done, don’t be afraid to start painting other rooms in the house. Explore the different variety of paints and patterns all through the home. In conclusion, painting can be both pleasurable and fulfilling.
