How the Pro’s Paint a Room

Painting a Room in Your Home

I just got done with painting some of the house to spruce up for spring and it takes a little chunk of time out of your week if you are going to do things correctly.

How to Paint a Room

It is best to plan and if you can, remove furniture and fittings from the room to make it much simpler to decorate. If you cannot do this, then covering the furniture and special fixtures is essential if you want to avoid scraping off paint afterwards.

There are a couple of schools of thought in the prep phase. Some pro’s will tell you to go with painters tape to mask up the room for a better clean line finish, whilst others will tell you it is better to master the art of good cutting in to get that flush look. In the links below you can see a couple of great articles about the ways the pro’s do it, and watch a video from Home Depot in the US on how to paint a room.

My personal preference after several years of redecorating homes is to skip the tape and cut in with care and practice using a good quality brush.

Of course everything you need from Drop Cloths to Paint Brushes and Rollers, along with the actual paint is availa ble in store here at Hot Pot Paint and Hardware in Vereeniging. Give us a call on 016 428 5525 if you need some help and advice, and remember to think about some colour ideas before you come to store so we can help you to narrow down final choice if you need it.

Here are those links I mentioned and the video from Home Depot USA.

Colour Design, Choosing your Palette

Colour Ideas with the Colour Wheel

What the Wheel Tells Us?

The standard guides tell us about the various ways to help when choosing colours that compliment in a room design. Typically you get the following:


This deals with a single colour and uses shades, tints tones etc to give you the variations


Using three colours adjacent to one another on the colour wheel


Colour combination of two colours opposite one another on the colour wheel for dramatic impact.


This is a scheme of three colours that are evenly spaced around a colour wheel to give quite vibrant results.

Paint Your Roof in South Africa

Paint Your Roof in South Africa



What Colour Do You Like Your Roof?

South African Sun is hard on the roof tops of most South African Homes. It needs to cope with some heavy sun rays and then there is the issue of the material the roof is constructed from.

In the Cape, its common to see those Green, sometimes Blue roof tops, where as the Vaal Triangle has Red making a popular choice.

Be sure to prep your roof correctly before applying your chosen paint, even hire in a professional if you do not want the hassle of doing the work for yourself.

At Hot Pot Paint in Vereeniging we stock a wide choice of Roof Paint so you will never be left without a choice.

Dulux, Plascon, Excelsior, iLex and more we hold a constant level of stock to help you get the job done when you need to.

Dulux has a great range of choice with its RoofGuard options, you can read all about application and use on their South African Web Site

Plascon also has a choice and its NuRoof brand is prooving a popular choice, they have details on their site too!

Excelsior Paint also offers a good and cheaper alternative for those on a budget as do iLex, both of whom we stock in our store here in the Vaal Triangle.You can find details about Excelsior on their web site and iLex at their site.

The great benefit to coming to a store like Hot Pot is the specialist knowledge built up over the last sixteen or so years¬†in the trade. From the paint type to preparation, we can help and advise you in store. We also work with many local contractors which means if you need to find someone reliable to do the job, we can assist you there too. Whilst we cannot guarantee their work, we make sure to pass on details of reputable companies and self employed workers whom have been referred to us time and time again and who’s work has been complemented by others who come to our store.
