Tips For Painting Your Apartment
Painting your apartment can be a quick, easy, and cost-effective way to give the space a facelift. Whether you’re doing it yourself or hiring someone to do the job for you, there are some things to keep in mind that will make the process easier.
Why paint your apartment?
Studies have shown that living in a well-decorated place makes you happier, healthier and more productive. So why not make your apartment the best it can be?
I know it’s hard to get motivated to paint your apartment, but I promise you it’s worth it. My home is filled with color and my life is much brighter for it. There are plenty of painting ideas out there that will help you design your apartment like a pro.
Have you ever considered a fresh coat of paint as an investment in your apartment? Other improvements may cost you thousands of dollars, but a fresh coat of paint can be done for under $100.
There are many reasons to paint your apartment. First, consider the psychological effects that color has on your mood. A study conducted by the University of Texas at Austin showed that blue is calming while orange is stimulating. So rooms with blue paint are calming and help you to relax, while orange rooms will get you ready for a day of productive work.
Second, consider how painting your apartment can change its appearance and feel.
Painting preparation: Repair cracks on walls and ceiling.
Preparing a surface to paint is the most important step in any painting project; the surface will determine how well your paint adheres, and how long it will last. Even if you’re covering existing painted surfaces with a new coat of paint, it’s still important that you prepare the surface properly.
The first thing you want to do is repair any cracks in your walls and ceiling. Cracks are hard for paint to adhere to, and will cause your paint job to peel or flake off over time. To repair cracks in drywall, use setting type compound and sand it smooth when it sets.
Painting ceilings and trimming out doors
Painting ceilings and trimming out doors is one of the many things that a painter does on the job, but it’s a task that most homeowners take on themselves. Now, I’m going to show you why you should hire a professional painter to do this work. There are at least two reasons I’m against painting your own trim and ceiling.
You need to have experience to paint ceilings and trimming doors. Applying paint to a ceiling is not as simple as applying it to a wall. And as anyone who has painted a ceiling can tell you, there are multiple spots where the paint can drip from above, like light fixtures or air vents. Without experience, you will miss a lot of spots which will be uncovered.
Also, painting trims and doors is not so easy, and going over the door jamb with a brush takes experience and practice. The results need to look good and look professional.
You need to decide whether you’re doing it yourself or hiring pro painter to do the job.
In any way, painting your apartment offers so many benefits that it should be the first thing on your to-do list when moving into a new place.
