5 Great Tips to Successful Interior Painting
Painting your Madison home can be one of the most rewarding and one of the most stressful ventures you will undertake. Most of the challenges come before the first stroke ever hits the wall. We often have clients who contact us, because they need help ‘repairing’ their painting train wreck. The common thread is lack of real preparation and getting good consultation prior to the project. With that in mind we’ve listed some quick suggestions for you before as you prepare to undertake that next paint project.
Create a Vision
Painting your kitchen, bathroom, living rooms or other rooms in your home involves more than just the paint itself. Ask yourself What do I want my room to look like? That question should govern your entire decision making process. It’s a matter of knowing who you are and what your personal taste and style is. Do you enjoy modern, cutting-edge style or are you more of a traditionalists? Do you like grand ornate styles or are you essentially a one color minimalists? Remember, once the paint is on the wall you have to live with it, or spend more time and money re-thinking your design. So its important to take your time and really flesh out the vision you have for your room.
Do The Research
One of the greatest strategies to triggering paint ideas is to see what others have done. Visit galleries, look online, and read through home decoration magazines. Find out what your friends did, visit homes, and ask for advice. When you call one of our Early Bird Painting consultants, you’ll get one on one face-time where you discuss your ideas and get friendly expert advice from trained and experience professionals in the field. After all, you don’t just want any color. You want the right color. The slightest variation in shade or design changes everything, so jump in and get your hands dirty with the details.
It’s your home. It’s your investment. And it’s your finished product. Rarely is the phrase ‘you get what you pay for more’ more true than in home remodeling. If you want to cheap then expect a cheap finished product. If you hire a sub-par company than expect bad service, less than satisfying work, and plenty of excuses. There’s a difference between affordable and cheap. That difference is doing background checks with the painting company and with the products you choose. It’s absolutely essential to hire a reputable company that is licensed, certified, and experienced. This will insure your absolute satisfaction every time.
The Bottom Line
In the end, all you want is an eye-popping paint project that you can be proud of and your neighbors, family, and friends will love. Do it right the first time, and it will create a positive rewarding painting experience for you!
