“How Should I paint my ceiling? What colour should I use? What paint should I use?” Confused? Here are some tips from the painters and decorators in North London!

Ceilings get stained by things like leaks, light bulbs, and smoke from real wood fires and cigarettes. Scrubbing and repainting doesn’t always work. Using an oil-based stain-block or damp-seal paint first can prevent the stain coming through. Decorating ceilings should be done first!

Painter and Decorator in Enfield and North London

When using oil-based paint on a ceiling, be sure to wear safety goggles in case the paint gets in your eyes. Your painters and decorators in North London prefer to use a roller with an extension pole rather than a ladder to paint the bulk of the ceiling as it is safer, but we do getup there for the finishing touches!

The easiest paints to use on ceilings are semi-solid paints. These splatter and drip less because they’re not runny, but come in a very limited range of colours.

Ceilings are prone to hairline cracks and these are hard to get rid of permanently. We use a bit of PVA and then filler as a long-term solution.

Sprucing up for summer doesn’t have to mean turning a room upside down or breaking the bank. Help can come in the form of painting and decorating. If you want to take on the task yourself, house-painting pros from the best Painter and Decorator in Enfield & North London – sharing tips on how to paint like a professional without the expense:

1. Choosing Paint

Be sure to choose the proper type of paint for the job:
High-gloss: shiniest, washable, durable and used to accent surfaces.
Semi-gloss: less shiny but still durable and washable.
Satin: has a bit of sheen, washable.
Eggshell: use if no shine is desired, washable, durable and good for use on imperfect walls.
Flat: commonly used, not very durable or washable, unless the whole wall is wiped clean.

2. Preparation

It’s worth spending time preparing surfaces to ensure clean lines and protect surfaces:
Remove any nails from the wall.
Fill holes with a spot of spackle across nail holes and then sand when dry.
Washing the walls. This will remove dirt and also save an extra coat of paint.
Cover the floors with drop clothes.
Remove door knobs, electric switches and other items that you want to keep paint-free.

 

3. Painting

Painting with a roller and an edging brush saves an enormous amount of time.
Prime the walls if going from one extreme colour to another.
Begin with the ceiling, then walls, doors and woodwork.
Save a small amount of paint in a glass jar for touch-ups later.

Feng Shui is basically an environmental science and its origins are simple. It is based on an interpretation of the natural world which enabled the Chinese to create efficient agricultural systems, and also the study of the movement of heavenly bodies in order to determine the passage of time. Over the centuries, the interpretation grew more complex and became removed from its original purpose. Present day North London and Enfield residence fail to even mention Feng Shui to us Painters and Decorators. Has it been lost?

painter and decorator enfield north london

As its exponents spread out from China across the world, their beliefs altered to fit into local beliefs and customs and, inevitably, folklore and superstition grew up around them. Fortunately, the ancient Chinese preserved the information in written form. In essence, all societies retain the knowledge contained in Feng Shui, but it has become absorbed into different disciplines. In China it underlies all aspects of life, from nutrition and medicine to exercise and the arts. By understanding the basic concepts, we can choose design, meaningful images and symbols from our own culture in Enfield & North London to support us in our lives – and the painting and decorating needs of our rooms! So what does Feng Shui mean to you?

Feng Shui in an office environment – How we function at work depends on a number of factors, some within and some beyond our control. We are usually able to organise our personal workspace so that it supports us and enables us to work efficiently. Other factors such as lighting, furnishings and layout we may not be able to change ourselves, but if we do not feel comfortable we may be able to influence the decision-making processes in order to achieve a balanced and harmonious environment to support us and ultimately benefit the company.

Finding room to function in such a small spot is not always so easy. The decorating rules that apply to other rooms go out the window when space is tight, and it takes major creativity to fit everything in. Here are some Painting and Decorating Tips to make the most of your Small Space.

Steer clear of these common mistakes;

Think horizontally, not vertically. Choose a vertical wardrobe instead of the typical horizontal dresser for your clothes, and take advantage of wall space with floating shelves.

Since when are side tables just side tables? Invest in double-duty furniture and your small space will thank you.

Propping your bed on risers is the easiest, cheapest way to free up storage space on the floor.

Light hues create the illusion of more space, as do mirrors.

Among the newest shades of colour for Spring 2015, is a tropical collection of blues, aqua and azure that ally with a rich navy and an understated bright green. So, how do you add the newest colours into your home?

painting and decorating enfield

 

Cast aside the idea that you need to paint the whole room and consider painting a feature wall – quick, easy and on-trend! Using these new colours and using them as a feature for the decor – cushions, lamps, drapes, whatever you want!

Blend these with your brand new feature wall and make your room feel fresh and new. In the kitchen features such as table runners, ceramic pieces, coloured glass pieces, and tea towels can be used to sprinkle in some of that new spring feeling.

For those who want to go bigger with the new trends – updating a backsplash with tiles in trending colours makes a powerful statement.

Perhaps the easiest spaces to bring in the newest tones are in bedrooms and bathrooms –bed linens, towels and floor mats can create eye-catching appeal in just a few minutes.

Part of the fun of a new year is trying out new things. We’ve taken a look into our crystal ball here at Absolute Decorating and come up with these predictions for what the look of 2015 will be. Themes for painting and decorating in Enfield is changing – again!

Dark, moody colours.
Think navy, charcoal, hunter green, even aubergine. Big and bright is so last year.

Colourful tiles.
Colourful glazed and encaustic tiles are making waves in the world of renovating. They’re especially lovely as a counterpart to stark, modern kitchens.

Texture.
Texture has been creeping back into home decor in Enfield for a while, a reaction to the slick, super-modern looks that prevailed in the early 2000’s.

Black.
Black is the new black. This is especially true when it comes to remodeling.

Leather.
Beautifully textured and effortlessly cool, leather is big for 2015, especially when paired with modern shapes.

As temperatures outside dips, it’s time to bring some warmth back into your home. Let’s cosy up for winter!

Avoid the winter blues by adding pops of cheery colour to a room. A bright throw or a patterned pillow will do the trick Brightly coloured elements can also last into the spring and summer.

With the days getting shorter, maximize what natural light is still available is a must. Hanging a big mirror on a empty stretch of wall will reflect light throughout the room.

Although wooden flooring creates a sophisticated style statement year-round, you’ll need to cosy them up for the cold Winter. A fluffy rug sets off a living room’s main seating area and adds warmth and texture.

Primer comes before paint.
Primer brings out the paint’s true colour. DON’T SKIP THIS PART!

Painter and Decorator in Enfield

Paint like a pro.
Use an edge pad for clean lines around doorframes, ceiling edges and corners so your walls look professional.

Create a sticky situation.
Paint won’t stick to the wall if you haven’t taken the time to prep. The surface must be clean, non-glossy and in good condition.

Dry days make good painting days.
Skip the wet and humid afternoon paint project and slow drying walls won’t wreck the rest of your day.

Put your sandwich bags to work.
Slip a small plastic bag over your doorknobs, handles and features as well as taping the edge to avoid getting paint in places it wasn’t meant to go.

Out with the old.
If the old paint on your wall is flaking off, it’s a good idea get it out of the way. Sand the surface smooth, prime and your new paint will look great.

Don’t look back.
Going back over a wet surface can leave marks and colour streaks in the paint’s surface.

Take away the shine.
Paint doesn’t always adhere to glossy surfaces. Using a light grade sandpaper to take the gloss off the surface will allow your new paint to stick like it should.

Turn in the brush.
Small rooms can feel gigantic when it comes to painting. Using a roller can cut painting time.

Painter and Decorator in Enfield

Patience is a virtue.
Make sure everything is dry, then sand smooth, prime, and you’ll have a surface good enough for any pro.
