Repainting your home is a fun and creative task. However, it can quickly become overwhelming if not thought through.
In this post, Handyman Connection® of Orange County discusses four things you should think about before tackling this project.
Budget – Of course, the budget should be the first thing you should think about, especially if you plan on doing it yourself. Depending on the type and quality of paint you want, this project can quickly become pricey.
Time – Your time is important. Since the paint job will require you to move some of your furniture out of the way, it might be a temporary inconvenience. Therefore, budget your time properly and factor in the drying times as well. Avoid moving quickly and cutting corners to save time as this can result in a spill or botched work that may take up more of your time than necessary.
Color Options – While you have a wide range of color options, keep in mind that some colors may not match your home’s exterior, overall architecture or even your furniture if you’re painting the interior. Try to narrow down your options with the help of friends, family and even home improvement experts to get things moving along.
Quantity – The amount of paint you apply is important. While a whole gallon of paint may seem enough, it won’t be able to cover an entire room, especially if you need multiple coats. Keep in mind that it’s preferable to have an excess supply of paint than run out of it halfway through. The excess can be set aside for the future. Alternatively, you can also use an online paint calculator to determine just how much paint you need.
