Whenever you start making or renovating a home one of the major things that will turn the look around is the paint. It will make or destroy the beauty. If selected well it can enchant every visitor, but if the work is not well finished it will be like a scare in the face. So make your selections wisely and do a good job at it. We suggest that you take help from professionals even if it just floor paint that needs to be applied. The texture, the colour, the material all need to be selected very wisely.
Here are a few tips to help you make the selection easily:
- DIY: firstly, if you are thinking of doing it yourself then you need to have ample time at hand. We also suggest that you must try out the whole thing only if you have a good amount of experience, else take help. When you set out to do the painting of the whole house you may feel very enthusiastic in the beginning but when you actually begin with the work it will be a big mess. There are many finer details and equipment’s that need to be used. So the amount that you willsave on the labour you may have to spend in buying the equipment’s and also in terms of your salary for the days you take an off. So let the professionals help you.
- The colour scheme: decide the colour that you will be using for the floor. If it is in the kids’ room or the playroom you can keep it nice and pop. But if it is a study room or a store it can be simple and subtle. You must consider the choice and liking of the person who is going to use the room. If it is in the washroom make sure the floor paint is non-slippery. If you are using it for the kitchen then you must consider a darker colour as there will be loads of foot fall and also food may fall on it. So keep all the aspects in mind when you select the paint.
- Surface condition: you must inspect the surface before painting. Make sure there are no cracks that need repairs. If there are slight cracks do not neglect them. You must fill them up. Also, make sure the surface is smooth. Else get it rubbed before painting so that there is a fine finish and smooth texture. Also, if there are any repair works to be done in the room then get it done before painting the floor. Later the dust or debris will stick in it and gets difficult to remove. There may also be stains.
- Protection: the floor paints work as a layer of protection that will give it a longer life. It also makes it easy for the purpose of cleaning, simple wiping will do the trick. And you can just use a mop to clean. The paint once done lasts for a few years so it is a good idea to invest.
