Top 4 Biggest Painting Mistakes to Avoid

Paint is one of the essential elements that gives your home a distinct personality. It has the power to represent the homeowner’s personality and style. 

Years after your home is built, paint tends to fade, calling for the need to repaint. Meanwhile, repainting can also instantly transform your home’s appearance. So, if you want to give your home an instant makeover, a paint job is something worth considering.

To make sure that the paint job turns out the way you want to, there are some painting mistakes to avoid:

Using the Wrong Painting Tools

Homeowners who treat home painting as a DIY project often make the mistake of using the wrong painting tools. Different rollers and brushes are designed for specific kinds of paints and finishes. If you don’t do your research before painting, you might decide to use whatever painting tool you find in your storage.

Not Using Primer

Consumers make the mistake of skipping primer because some paint products are marketed as paint and primer in one. However, there are instances when primer is required, regardless whether you’re using one of those all-in-one paints.

Using the Wrong Kind of Paint

Some paints can be used for both interior and exterior and these can be safely used as they are. However, it’s important to check the label as there are paints that are only for exterior and only for interior applications. 

Not Preparing the Surface Properly

It’s important to ensure that the surface is thoroughly cleaned before coating it with paint. Otherwise, the paint won’t stick well and imperfections will be more pronounced.
