It is possible to paint a room in a few hours if you know the tricks of professional painters. Today, we bring you some tips to paint a room in just one day. Remember to always clean the area well before painting.
Use less adhesive tape
You have probably noticed that applying adhesive tape to all edges takes a long time and does not guarantee good results; paint can sneak between the tape and the wall. This is why, if you do not have enough time and you are in a hurry to paint any of the rooms in your home, just put adhesive tape on horizontal surfaces (such as baseboards), where a few drops of paint could finish and ruin your new wall.
Vertical surfaces like the door and window sills are not as vulnerable to splashing, so don’t bother putting tape on them. Just be sure to paint carefully using a small brush around the frames.
Clean your walls
You may not notice it, but your walls are likely to have accumulated dirt and dust. Clean the walls with a towel, making sure to reach the corners near the ceiling since this area is where dust accumulates. Believe us, and it is much better to do this, even if it seems like a waste of time, otherwise you can drag dust particles along with the paint.
Apply a base coat, no excuses
Unless you are painting a new room, never painted before, it is recommended to apply a base coat, even if the current color of the walls is light. This is a really necessary step since it allows the paint to adhere well to the surface without you having to make a great effort when painting.
Always remember to give two coats of paint.
Two coats of paintwork very well in almost any case. They give a professional and clean finish. It can be very tempting to stop after a coat of paint, especially if the walls seem to be completely covered (and you don’t have much time left), but the paint may eventually fade in certain places.
Have a strategy to paint your house
Have all the necessary objects on hand: paint trays, two rollers (one for the base coat and one for the paint), brushes, and cans with the colors you chose, gloves, newspaper … First, cover the walls with the base coat. Wait a reasonable time for it to dry, and then apply a coat of paint to the surface of the walls, from top to bottom. Do the exact same thing with the second coat of paint.
Finally, use a medium-sized brush to carefully paint the edges and edges of the windows. It can be monotonous, but if you carry out your plan, you can paint an entire room in one day.
