Playroom Painting Techniques To Consider in Palos Verdes Estates, CA
You are likely to have a relatively short amount of time that you will have a playroom — once your child or children reach a certain age, you’re more likely to convert the playroom into another sort of room.
Yet for the duration of the time that you have it as a playroom, it’s a nice idea to have it look as best as you can — and for that reason, you can think about incorporating one or more of some key painting techniques to make it look better.
Let’s look at some of the better playroom painting techniques to consider for making your playroom a better place to be.
1. Using Appropriate Colors
One important thing that you should keep in mind as you are going about preparing to paint your playroom is that you are going to need to make use of appropriate colors for the painting project.
This is, after all, a playroom that is being painted and as such you have to remember that the target audience that is going to be staying in the room for the majority of the time is more appreciative of bright and fun colors than the darker colors that may impress your soul but just make them feel a bit sadder.
There are plenty of bright colors from which you can choose, naturally, and the key is to just choose one or two that speak to your children.
2. Decals Are Okay
In looking to make your playroom look more pleasant, you can get a lot of mileage out of some large decals that can be put up on the wall after you have finished painting.
The good thing about these decals is that they are both easy to apply to the wall and easy to remove once the children have moved on past whatever is on the decals — all you have to do is to peel and remove them and you can move onto the next phase of whatever interests them!
3. Use Easy To Clean Paint
It should be stated quite clearly that when you are going to be painting a room that will be predominantly used by children as a playroom is, you are going to want to make use of paint that is easy to clean.
In this case, you are going to want to make use of paint that is glossy rather than flat — each of these kinds of paints has its own advantage but for a playroom where children will be running in and out (sometimes with messy hands fresh from eating) you will want glossy paint on the walls as this is the sort of paint that you can take a moist cloth and wipe the messes easily.
With flat paint, you have a look that will cover your imperfections on the wall but you are going to have a very difficult time cleaning.
4. Clean Before You Paint
Speaking of cleaning, it’s quite imperative that you clean the surfaces that are going to be painted before you start the painting process.
It’s quite unfortunate that people might look at the process of painting walls and think that the paint is just going to cover up any mess that might be there and so you don’t have to clean — but really this couldn’t be any less true.
You will know pretty immediately if you look at walls that were dirty and then were painted over that this is exactly what happened.
The best thing that you can do for your painting project is to first entirely clean the walls, even if it means getting a bit of degreaser on the walls and then using a good detergent and water to get the walls as clean as you can before allowing the surfaces to dry.
