When you think of hiring a professional for interior painting, you might find yourself focusing on the paint itself. However, there are many other factors to consider.
Paint is magical. It transforms any space with color and character. Your walls are the first thing people see when they walk into your home, so it’s important that they’re a good representation of your style.
Every color has a different emotional effect. For example, blue is calming and serene while red can be stimulating or even passionate. When you’re choosing paint for your home’s interior walls, it’s important to consider the colors and vibes that will create the right mood in your space.
Interior paints come in different sheens (flat, eggshell, satin), textures (matte, semi-gloss) and finishes (satin). Choosing the right one can make all the difference!
Below we’ll discuss some of those factors and what they mean in terms of styles for your project as well as decisions that need to be made before you hire a professional painter.
First let’s discuss the different types of interior paints and textures available. The decision about what to use is often made based on the style you’re looking for, and your budget, but it’s important that you have all the information before making a final decision.
You’ll need to choose between flat, eggshell, or semi-gloss paints which will determine how shiny your walls look.
You will need to choose between latex and oil-based paints, which depends on what types of surfaces you’re painting. Latex paint dries more quickly than oil, but it’s best for smooth surfaces like wood or plaster, while oil finishes are often preferred because they provide better coverage on surfaces like brick or concrete.
The best way to choose a paint color for your décor and homes style is to try to imagine what you want your room to look like when it is finished. You may find that the color needs to be changed or muted for certain rooms.
The most popular interior paint colors are neutral: beige, white and cream. They can make the room look bigger because it doesn’t draw attention to any one thing.
When interior painting, they create more natural light in rooms by reflecting all different types of lights. The downside is that they can also look too bland in a room, sometimes creating the feeling of being cold and sterile.
If you’re going for an elegant look, paints like eggshell or pearl are excellent choices because they give off a luxurious feel. Paint finishes such as flat will offer better protection from stains than gloss. Some people prefer to use high gloss paint, which is more expensive and requires meticulous upkeep. They create a beautiful effect when light reflects off of them.
Another option would be to purchase low VOC paints that have been certified as environmentally friendly.
Interior painting typically takes 2-5 days to complete, depending on the size of the room or area. The number of coats needed will depend on how opaque you want your final paint color and what type it is (flat, eggshell, satin). Flat paints require fewer coats than glossier finishes because they’re easier to cover in one coat. This creates an ideal situation because you can complete the project in a shorter amount of time and with fewer coats.
Hiring a professional painter can be expensive, but you may not have enough time to take off work, do the prep work and clean up afterwards. On the other hand, hiring a professional will provide you with an expert who knows all about painting techniques and can guide you on what’s best for your home or office space.
Interior painting on your own can feel rewarding, but a professional will make the process easier, less stressful, and more successful.
