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:

Monochromatic

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

Analogous

Using three colours adjacent to one another on the colour wheel

Complementary

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

Triadic

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