Do-It-Yourself Interior Painting
The process of painting you interior of your home can be a fun and exciting process. Being mindful of color and tones when the light eliminate the room from the glow of the beautiful sun shine allows rays to uplift the atmosphere.
The art of painting can be its own therapy with the soothing feeling of the strokes of the bush moving the paint in the direction of flow creating a vibrant canvas.
Latex, or water-based paints, are usually used where there won’t be much need for washing. Enamels, or oil-based paints are used for woodwork and other areas where there might be a lot of handprints. They are easy to clean because of their glossy finish. You’ll find a lot of enamel paint in bathrooms and kitchens for this reason.
To estimate how much paint you’ll need, multiply the perimeter of the room by the height of the walls, which will give you the square footage of your room. For ceilings, simply multiply the length by the width. A gallon of paint typically covers 350-450 square feet. You’ll want to overestimate a bit to account for later touch-ups. When painting, start at the top and work your way down – ceiling, walls, trim.
