Four DIY painting tips that every home decorator needs to know

DIY Painting Tip 1. If you need to stop for lunch in the middle of your painting, then you can stop your brushes and rollers from being ruined from paint drying on them. Wrap your brush or roller cover in cling wrap and put it in the fridge. When you are ready to start painting again just get it out of the fridge, unwrap the cling wrap and you are ready to go.

DIY Painting Tip 2. If you are going to buy a premium paint finish, then don’t try and save on your brushes and rollers. Whilst it might be tempting to try and save some money this way, you will not be happy with the results. The quality of your brushes and rollers will make a big difference to the final look of your job.

DIY Painting Tip 3. When looking for paint color ideas, it is really worth the extra expense to get some sample pots and paint them on your walls to see how your paint color ideas look in that room. Don’t forget to undercoat over these patches before you paint or you could end up with patches in your final finish.

DIY Painting Tip 4. When you go to the store with your paint color ideas, make sure that you know what brand of paint your colors are from. There can be 10 different colors all with the same name, but belonging to different paint companies, make sure you ask for the right one.

I hope that these painting tips wills help with your home painting jobs.
