The thought of applying a wet paintbrush to a wall and smothering it until the whole wall is covered might sound convincingly easy. But to create a work of art, even though it might look blank, one needs to take great care in all their choices. Here are tips from the leading painting contractors in Sydney to make beautiful walls.
- Choice of paint type: There are many different choicesin the type of paint that painters can choose from. The process of selecting one involves knowing what happens in each room. For example, kitchens and bathrooms would benefit from using a tough paint that won’t react with detergent material while cleaning. However, in bedrooms and living rooms, it’s preferred to use matte paint to give it that premium finish.
- Colour selection: This is a difficult choice for most. It is a choice that they will have to live with for the rest of their lives, or until they want to renovate the house again. Generally colour selection can be made easier by browsing through allied articles on Pinterest and choosing one that best fits the client’s descriptions. If the client doesn’t specify any requirements, appropriate neutral colours can be chosen similar to how painting contractors in Sydney choose neutral colours to paint the walls of the houses they take up.
- Procure the best tools: Keeping budgetary constraints in mind, one must procure the best painting tools for the job. This involves buying an appropriate number of paintbrushes, sugar soap, sandpaper, crack sealant, paint trays, and enough paint to cover all the walls.
- Cleaning the surface: Similar to how the surfaces of smartphones are cleaned extensively before applying the scratch guard, walls that need to be painted must be scrubbed squeaky clean to ensure that there are no marks left on the walls after painting.
- Painting like a pro: Now onto the actual painting. To paint like a professional, one must use simple motions; either up and down motions, or left and right motions to ensure that the paint gets evenly distributed along the surface of the wall. Upon completion of one coat of paint, the wall must be allowed to dry before the application of the second coat. This second coat will generally require the most care to ensure that further touch-ups are not required to make the painting even.
