There comes a certain point where your home starts to feel bland, and a change is needed. You might think that a complete renovation is needed, but all you need is to repaint! Here’s a guide from your favourite Painters and Decorators in North London for interior painting.Painters and Decorators in North London & Enfield

 

It may be tempting to buy cheaper brands of paint, but it can work out being more expensive in time, money and effort than buying a quality brand, and making sure the surfaces are sealed. Poor quality paints won’t  cover as well so you’ll need more – that’s why they are often in such large cans – and you may have to paint an extra coat or two to get a sufficient finish.


Make sure you’re stocked up on paint in the same colour and finish to complete the job. Paints are made in batches and there may be  slight differences in the colour between batches. It’s better you have a leftover can of paint after you finish, rather than running out  halfway through and, in any case, you’ll be able to exchange or return the unopened paint within 30 days. Once you’ve chosen your  paint  – water or oil based – and the finish – gloss, silk or matte – make sure you stick with it for the duration of the job.

Once you’re ready to start painting, start from the ceiling and work your way down the room. Make sure that you  clean up paint drips as they happen and remove  loose bristles as they fall out of the paintbrush. Always read the instructions on the tin as some paints – except non-drip gloss and solid emulsions – may need stirring before being applied. Remember the professional painters’ methods: decant paint into a paint kettle, and, if you have to use old paint, pour it into the kettle through a piece of muslin or an old nylon tight leg stretched over the neck of the can.

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.
