5 tricks to paint your house yourself

No matter how much trouble the painting services seem to most people, no one can deny the fact that it transforms a space into lightning time. You can hire a professional workshop that will paint your house, or you can economically do it yourself.

All you need – in addition to the basic tools – is creativity, patience, and some useful tips. That’s why we present you 5 tricks that will help you carry out the painting services process faster.

1. Clean the walls

A successful painting job starts with the proper preparation of the surface to be painted. So, apply the surface you want to paint with a dry cleaning cloth. This way, you will be able to remove dust from your walls effectively without any extra effort.

2. Roll

Dip the rolling pin into the special sloping container with gentle movements. So that it “gets” enough paint so that it does not drip and is covered evenly.

3. Take the test

To choose the right shade with confidence, all you have to do is paint a small area of ​​your wall. Leave it for 2-3 days to see how it looks at different times of the day, always observing it in relation to the furniture and the lighting of your space.

4. Do not follow the straight line

Start painting services by making W-shaped movements and apply the paint to the wall so that most of it is gone. Then, with movements from top to bottom, fill in the inner points of the W. In this way the roll leaves more color.
