Make sure you prep the surface for paint. Filling cracks, bumps, or holes is essential before painting. This will ensure a professional-looking finish while preventing any imperfections from showing through the paint’s new layer.
Use Painter’s Tape
Use painter’s tape around the edges of walls and trim. Painter’s tape is essential for protecting areas that will not be painted, such as windowsills or door frames. This will ensure a sharp line between the painted and the non-painted areas, resulting in a neat, professional look. Note that this task is tedious and requires 100% attention to detail.
High-Quality Brushes & Rollers
Invest in high-quality brushes and rollers. Cheap brushes and rollers may seem like a good idea, but they can leave streaks or bristles behind your new paint job. Spending a little extra on high-quality brushes and rollers will ensure you get an even finish without any blemishes.
Clean up as you go. Don’t wait until the end to start cleaning up. As you move from wall to wall, take the time to wipe down any spills or drips of paint. This will help ensure that your job looks neat and professional when it’s finished.
Start With The Trim
The trim is usually the last area to be painted in a project, but starting with it can help you get a better finish. Painting the border before the walls lets you catch any drips and ensure the edges are nice and straight. Painting your home or a section of your home is not easy; if you’re not a pro, hiring professional painters is best to get the job done professionally.
