DYI – the simple way to refresh your home

Despite the fact that, both interior painting as well as exterior painting, is not a rocket science it’s always great to to be familiar with few ins and outs of the whole renewal process. There’s no better way to refresh our house than colouring interior walls. The secret is to do it in a possible effortless way. To start with, it’s good to do necessary arrangment before we will catch a paintbrush. Of course, it’s always good to hire a skilled team to do the job but is it worth to spend few extra hundreds bucks when we have everything what it takes to do it on our own? Naturally, if we want to save few hours it’s always better to hire some people to do interior painting.

On the other hand, because it’s the most favoured do-it-yourself home renewal activity we should always give it a try. Therefore, what should we do at the beginning? First of all – we have to have precise idea of how the house should look like after finishing our painting activity. We need to have a master plan, so to speak. When everything is accodringly planned, we need to focus on buying necessary equipment like paintbrushes (several different types – a lengthening pole is a must), spatula, paint (thank you captain obvious!) and other like masking films, tapes and so forth. Once we gather all equipment, we have to prepare walls and surfaces. What is the point of doing that?

Of course, we must fill every single hole or dent that scars our “wanna be” ideal walls. Don’t forget to prime walls before any separate drop of tint will land on our prepared surface. Thanks to this we can save a lot of paint afterward because it lets only once-coat coverage. Moreover, a tint will have better adhesion. And one more thing, every time paint in a daylight! Artificial light is not an ally in our errand of having perfectly painted walls.

Another seemingly complicated matter is an exterior painting. If we feel up to do it at our own cost, we are able to save a significant amount of money and have a lot of joy at once. However, it’s not so easy as it can be at a glance, because as always all come at a price. First of all, we need to adjust paint to our external facade surface. We have to consider whether a water-based or maybe an oil-based paint is more appropriate for our needs. Ok, if you don’t feel up to choose a proper paint, just look for such person. There is always a good man ready to help you with this kind of task in each and every home-improvement and in construction store. After selecting the proper paint, we have to get rid of all dirt out there and proceed with first stroke. Every journey starts with a first step!
