Remodeling or renovating your room? Below mentioned are a few tips
to avoid a mess when painting a room.
Paint drips are unavoidable while painting a room, but you can minimize the damage by using drop cloths to cover your floors and protect them from any excess spills or mess.
If you happen to have carpets at home you could use canvas cloths, linens cloths, or even plastic for better protection. You can easily walk around the house while painting your room, without worrying about messing your carpet with paint stains.
Hard floors can be tiles, laminated floors, or hardwood floors, to make sure that there are no inevitable paint spills you could use rosin paper also known as craft paper, or plastic sheeting which is readily available in the market. These papers can prevent major paint mess.
TIP 2: MOVE YOUR FURNITURE
Just a drop of paint color can ruin furniture at home and to avoid such incidents make sure to move your furniture into another room which is the best choice. You should ensure that there is ample space around the room and have the furniture along the walls removed because cramped quarters can cause chaos and detract from the overall appearance of the room. If you happen to not have another spare room for your furniture or if it’s too heavy to move it out of the way, you could always use canvas drop cloths or plastic wraps to keep the furniture safe and clean.
TIP 3: USE WIDE TAPE AND PLASTIC TO PROTECT DOORS AND WINDOWS
Paint rollers frequently produce a mist, which leaves specks of paint underneath the roller, which can damage your doors and windows. Masking tape or plastic wraps are ideal for protecting any glass surfaces if you have glass windows. Simply place the tape's edge against the rim of the window glass to ensure proper coverage. Painter's tape can be used around the edges and trims as well as plastic wrap can be used to protect doors, locks, and handles.
TIP 4: NEVER PAINT DIRECTLY OUT OF THE CAN
To minimize mess around the room and to avoid any spills straight out of the can, you could transfer the paint to another plastic tub and use the underside of a wire coat hanger or a rubber band which can be used as a DIY which indeed makes a great drip stopper.
TIP 5: START PAINTING FROM THE TOP
One of the most skillful tips from our professional interior painting contractors is to start painting the room from the top for a clean and unified look. As we know paint drips are unavoidable and starting your way from the top allows the paint to drip to the bottom of the wall creating no mess around the surface of the wall. If the paint is most likely all over the place, your paint tape has already saved you from clutter.
