Your bedrooms are in need of a fresh coat of paint, but you might’ve never done bedroom painting before, or you need a little refresher on the steps. Don’t worry because with our handymen’s advice, you will be ready to paint your bedroom in no time.
Good supplies can make or break a painting project. You will want to purchase new brushes, roller trays, paint, a paint scraper, roller handles and sleeves, painter’s tape, a mixing stick, and a drop cloth if you do not have one.
Picking out the color of your room is important to consider before you start bedroom painting. For example, dark and cool colors can make a space look small while bright and warm colors can make it look bigger. It all depends on the look you are going for, but with these points in mind, you can consider an accent wall too if you want one wall of color and the others neutral to get the right feel. As you pick out paint, pay attention to the brand, type, and how many coats it requires to get the experience you expect.
Before you begin bedroom painting, make sure your room is prepared. Put a drop cloth down on the entire floor to avoid any drips or accidents. Next, put painter’s tape along all trim in the room and if needed, the ceiling too. This will keep paint off the trim as you line the edges of your wall with the paint brush before you roll. Paint a few inches away from the trim like this in smooth straight strokes so the roller doesn’t have to get too close to anything.
Starting out with good supplies, the right color, and preparing your room for the roller, you will be off to a good start and ready to paint your room in no time. Take your time and look forward to the end results once your bedroom painting is done and ready to be enjoyed.
