Kids’ Bedroom Painting Tips in Palos Verdes Estates, CA

In the process of improving your child’s bedroom, there are quite a few things that you’re going to be able to do — painting the walls being just one of a number of things that will get the room looking better.

However, you should know that if you come to the painting project well prepared, you will get it done in less time and perhaps for less money.

Let’s have a look at some kids’ bedroom painting tips in Palos Verdes Estates, CA

1. Consider The Wants Of The Kids

One thing you should think about when you are looking to paint the bedroom for the kids is to find out exactly what the kids want for their bedroom and to take it into consideration when painting.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you’re just going to do whatever the kids want — you can just imagine that this would result with perhaps full scale images of their favorite cartoon characters covering every square inch of the walls with not much breathing room as it were.

Once you find some kind of compromise and find something that works for everyone, you will know that you have a room that looks nice and the kids will feel they’ve contributed to the project.

2. Use Low VOC Paint

In painting a room that will be primarily used by a child or children, you should be particularly considerate to use low VOC paint or perhaps even no VOC paint if it is at all possible.

VOC stands for volatile organic compounds and it’s the kind of subject that can get its own article another day — but for now know that you want to avoid making use of it when you’re painting a child’s bedroom.

There are plenty of alternatives to paint that have VOC, and you should make use of one of these alternatives instead of paint with VOC — and in any case, you should make sure to properly ventilate while you are painting so that you get the fumes out of the room.

3. Let Your Paint Dry

A problem that a lot of people will have when they’re painting a surface is that they will apply a coat of paint¬† to the wall and then not too long after that, add a second coat of paint — or they will perhaps add another coat of paint after the second coat of paint without letting the previous coat dry.

The problem with doing this is that when you don’t allow time for your paint to dry before you go on to apply the second coat, you are going to cause painting problems — there are a number of painting issues that come about when you apply primer or paint.

The best thing that you can do is to consider that at any step in the process if you find yourself with a moist surface, it’s well worth allowing the surface to dry before you go on to the next step in the painting process.

4. Clean Before You Paint

In order to have a successful painting project, you’re going to have to have a good clean surface upon which to paint.

Though you may be under the impression that the paint that you will later apply will be able to take care of just about any surface problem including the possible messes that are there from years of use, this is not at all the case.

Indeed, you are going to need to make sure you fully clean the surface that is going to be painted and then as mentioned above allow for time for the surface to dry before you continue with your painting project.
