Spare Room Painting Tricks To Learn in Rolling Hills, CA

You may have a spare room — the kind of room that doesn’t necessarily have any set purpose, yet can fit any purpose should the need arise.

When you look at your spare room and are thinking of how you’re going to be able to improve it, painting it may be at the forefront — and there are things you can do to improve how the painting work will go.

Let’s have a look at some spare room painting tricks to learn and help you have a better looking room

1. Use An Appropriate Color Or Colors

One thing you’re going to likely want to do when you’re looking to paint your spare room is to choose a color that is most appropriate for the room.

Bearing in mind that the purpose of the spare room could change depending on what your needs are, you should think about picking a color or colors that are more easily shared as it were between the various purposes that may come to be for the room.

Of course, if you have a good idea of what some of these purposes are you will have a better idea about how you are should paint the room, color wise — knowing you will be making use of the room as a bedroom, for example, will take you in one direction color wise whereas using the room as a storage room could take you another way.

2. Remove Furniture If Possible

Something that you might not realize when you’re painting your spare room is that having more things in the room makes for a worse painting experience, and so by removing the furniture from the room you will find that it is actually an easier process.

There are a couple of reasons that this is the case, one being that having the furniture in the room with you will make it that much more difficult to get around — imagine you are carrying a paint tray loaded with paint and you have to maneuver around a bed that is there and how much easier it would be were the bed not there.

Moreover, having the furniture there increases the chances that you will get paint on the furniture, even if you are as careful as possible and take steps to prevent it from happening — but in some cases, you just cannot remove the furniture from the room whether because it is too heavy or just too difficult because of the size.

If this is the case, you should do your best to get it away from the walls and then cover it with good paint-resistant tarp or heavy drop cloth so that you will not get any paint on it.

3. Use An Appropriate Interior Paint

Here too you will have to know the kinds of purposes that you will have for the spare room — are you thinking of having the room set aside occasionally for a bedroom, for example?

In looking to paint a room you have a few different choices when it comes to interior paint but one of them relates to the finish of the paint — are you going to want to have a finish that is more flat or glossy?

The more flat the paint, the better it will do in concealing surface flaws, but the more difficult it will be to clean.

On the other hand, having glossy paint means that you will be able to very easily clean the surface — all it will take is a moist cloth and just about any stain (food or otherwise) should come off relatively easily.

The key thing is to determine how the room will be used, how much traffic you can expect, and choose accordingly.
