Essential tips for painting your interiors

It’s not always easy to choose the right paint or to avoid certain mistakes that you might make and regret later on. In this article, you will discover some tips and tricks that will allow you to paint your interior in the best possible conditions.

Which paint quality to choose?

The quality of paint is important and often the number of coats to be applied depends on it. However, you should know that the paint used on large signs is also good paint. It is ideal for a building site where you don’t want to spend too much. The number of coats to be applied still depends, to a large extent, on the colour chosen.

If you use dark colours, you will need more than 2 coats to get a homogenous rendering, without roller marks. When you repaint your interior in more neutral tones, 2 coats are usually enough.

Do not rely on so-called “single-layer” paints. A paint is applied in at least 2 coats. The second coat is the finishing coat, the one that will give you a perfect finish!

The paint must be chosen according to your support (wet, porous, etc…) and the finish you want. Something matt, glossy or natural? With these 2 points, you can already choose a paint that suits you. If you are still a little lost, you can also call on a painting company. These expert craftsmen will provide you with a lot of advice that will help you to make your project a success for sure!

Traps to avoid?

If you are in the middle of renovating your interior, we advise you to protect your building site well. A pot of paint spills or stains can happen quickly. Do not hesitate to protect your floor as much as possible with tarpaulins. The more you have, the better! Needless to say, there are also many other traps, such as working in a room full of furniture. An empty space is much simpler than if you have to move your furniture around the construction site. It’s not always easy in small apartments, but it’s ideal to be able to complete the job in one go.

Finally, you should know that with the best paint in the world, if your surface is not prepared, your project will unfortunately be missed…
