Interior Painting Tips from the Experts at Bonds Decor

Want your home to look professionally painted without paying for the service?

Interior painting seems like a simple DIY task, although it can be easy to create a few mistakes along the way that decrease the quality of the job.

Before beginning any project, you must have a plan detailing what colour scheme you’ve chosen, the materials you need, and what preparations must be done.

Most homeowners know the basics of painting walls, but learning a few simple tips from professionals will help contribute to a more polished finish. A fresh coat of paint may be all you need to rejuvenate your interior space and make it feel brand new. 

Choosing the Right Colour Scheme 

Though it may be tempting, choosing your favourite colour to paint the walls even though it doesn't match the furniture is not the best way to go.

Start by looking for inspiration from interior design magazines and social media sites. These platforms are a great source of inspiration as they keep up to date with the latest trends and provide a wide variety of aesthetics and styles to look at. 

Once you have a general idea of the colours or styles you’d like to implement, take a look at the colour wheel to see what others shades might best complement your choice.

Each colour and shade invoke different feelings and set different moods. You don’t necessarily have to study colour psychology to learn what colours work best with each other, but having a basic understanding will greatly help when choosing your palette. 

Prepare the Room Beforehand 

Getting a good finish all depends on the prep work you do beforehand.

An overlooked aspect of preparing a room to be painted is making sure the walls are clean and dry. Though it may seem like an unnecessary step to take, it’s just as important as putting painter's tape around the trimming or using a primer.

When placing the painter's tape around the room, be sure to use enough pressure to create a tight seal. Implementing this step in your prep work will help prevent drips, saving you a headache in the future.

Depending on the colour you’re trying to paint over, it may be tempting to skip the primer and go straight into painting. Choosing to forgo this step won’t completely ruin your paint job but you won’t be getting a flawless finish either.
