Painting the interior of your house can improve its overall look and feel. However, doing everything on your own is not exactly the best idea. If you don’t have any idea or prior experience about interior painting, it is best that you leave the job to a professional. Interior painters deliver quality and speed, so you don’t need to spend the whole day painting your home’s interior. These professionals can paint living rooms, hallways, bedrooms, kitchens, foyers, bathrooms, doors, dining rooms, windows, home offices, basements and other interior spaces.
Interior painters will confirm the paint color and details before going to your house. They will get your home ready for painting by covering the floor, filling cracks or holes in the walls, moving and covering furniture, fixing drywall, caulking windows and removing wallpaper. Interior painters will also trim and sand the walls to ensure proper paint adhesion.
Choosing the right paint color is important, and interior painters can help you pick the best choice for your home. Complementary colors often include both cool and warm colors. It’s based on contrasting colors, which creates a vibrant look in any room. You can also go for analogous colors. It’s a blend of up to 3 similar colors. Monochromatic colors, on the other hand, are a single color. It varies in value and saturation. There are also different types of paint finishes available today, including enamel, semi-gloss, eggshell, flat, enamel, gloss, matte and more.
Lighting in a room plays a key role when choosing a paint color. You also need to think through whether to use primer or not. If you or a family member smokes, it’s best that apply primer before applying the actual paint as nicotine stains can damage the paint. Interior painters provide you with a detailed proposal that outlines their services and the cost of the job.
Interior painters use a wide range of painting techniques to add a unique flair to your home. The following are some of the common techniques used.
This technique is done by using brushes or sponges inside a cutout shape. A pattern is created when the stencil is removed. The stencils are done on stair risers or along the top or in the middle of the wall. Stenciling is usually used in country-themed properties and doesn’t require artistic skills to create the patterns. You just need to spread the color within the stencil.
Sponging is used to add decoration to the wall. A natural or porous sponge is dipped in the paint and stamped on the walls. Various shades of the same color in medium, dark and light tones are used to provide the mottled results with more depth.
Swirls of paint are applied using a brush to create flowers, ocean waves, and other themes. Decorative painting can be used in borders or on walls. This painting technique can also be used on the backsplash tiles behind the sink area.
Stripping is a painting technique used to fill in the color within the lines of a certain space. Robust masking tape will be placed in straight lines on the walls. After the walls have been painted, the tape is removed, and clear stripes are revealed. If you would like to go for wider stripes, don’t worry. All you need to do is to ask the painter to place the tape farther apart. You can also fill in the stripes with color. Place tape on both sides of the stripes and paint between the strips of tape. Remove the strips of tape, and you will get colored stripes.
Murals usually cover all four walls in a room. This painting technique is often used in children’s bedrooms. Painted scenes can feature simple shapes painted in bright colors. It can be animals, flowers or clouds. Nature scenes are quite common. When interior painters paint murals in other room, they usually limit it to one wall. The scenes are more stylish and reflect the homeowner’s tastes.
