What supplies do I need to paint a room ?
And suddenly, you are a blank slate at this time and giving up the idea of painting your room.
But don't you worry! We are here providing a check list for you :
Set up material :- before jumping to the fun part we need to prepare walls, patches, holes etc . to get the best result. For this, you will be required following things:
- Spackle & spatula– Use to patch any holes.
• Metal paint scraper – Use to scrape off any peeling or cracking paint (if necessary) before sanding.
• Fine grit sandpaper – Use to even out rough texture and smooth down any bumps.
• Mild soap & water solution – Use to clean any dirt or grease off walls before priming.
• Painter’s tape – Use to tape off borders so paint doesn’t bleed into areas you are not painting; also use painter’s tape to cover hardware and outlets.
• Canvas tarp or plastic drop cloth – Use to protect floors and furniture. even use old newspapers in a pinch.
• Angled paint brush – Use to paint corners. Angled brushes help achieve clean edges without paint bleed, which can be tricky in corners if using a regular flat brush.
• 3-inch flat paint brush – Use for “cutting in”, which is the process of painting the border around the taped-off area.
• Paint roller frame & roller covers – Use a roller for the majority of painting, since it’s a much faster method than a brush.
• Paint tray – Use to hold smaller portions of paint as you work. Also useful to avoid dipping brushes directly into paint cans, which can contaminate paint with dust and dirt.
• Primer – Primer is an undercoat applied before color. If you are painting over an existing color, primer covers the existing color and creates a blank slate so the new color will go on evenly and require less coats. so you can achieve a much more polished result in a shorter amount of time.
• Interior Paint – Finally, the fun part! Beyond choosing the color, there are different types of paint and each type is suited for different purposes.
- Flat paint is suited for low-traffic areas and ceilings, since it provides a dull, no-gloss finish and is harder to clean.
- Satin and Eggshell paints are suited for higher traffic areas (e.g., living and bedrooms) since they are easy to clean and offer light-reflective qualities that are desirable in most rooms.
Semi-gloss and High-gloss paints are suited for trim, windowsills, banisters, or smaller surface areas;
For those who are giving it up, now you can paint with integrity supply: “You are a canvas to create your own divine masterpiece”.
