House Painting in Pleasant Hill Doesn't Have to Be Stressful

House Painting in Pleasant Hill Doesn't Have to Be Stressfultitle= You will most likely welcome the idea of house painting in Pleasant Hill with a groan because it sounds like too much of a chore. But this task doesn't have to be stressful if you use the great tips below for a less burdensome painting project.

1. Don't stress about color
Being faced with countless paint color choices, deciding which ones to use for your home sounds stressful enough. But don't let the choice of paint colors cause you too much stress. There are online tools (like the myColorStudio tool from Kelly-Moore Paint’s website) available to help you select the right colors for the entire space, or a specific surface such as walls or trim. These helpful online apps will allow you to have a clear vision of what your room will look like with that specific color before you begin painting. This can save you time, money, and stress.

2. Select neutral paint colors
This tip is especially helpful if you are about to sell your home. If you are undecided about which paint color would go well with your home, select neutral colors like white or beige. These colors will help get rid of your own personality that once dominated your home. In addition, painting your home with neutral colors will also give a "blank slate" for potential buyers who will visualize themselves in your space. Maybe they want to add a little color on the trim, or add colorful furniture or a hang an enormous artwork, or repaint a room entirely that will match their own personality the moment they move to their new home. Having a neutral color will help them visualize their items in your home.

3. Do prep work
Proper prep work on the surface is surely time consuming, but it will definitely save you from stress and other unnecessary work. Not cleaning and prepping the surface before painting will lead to a dirty wall. And painting a dirty wall will cause paint adhesion problems. Besides, the dirt and dust will also stick to your paintbrush or roller which will cause the unnecessary work of washing them.

It is also important to clear your space as much as possible before proceeding to paint. There's nothing worse than seeing your expensive furniture getting ruined by a single drip of excess paint.

4. Buy quality tools
Sure, there are great deals at the hardware stores that may tempt you. But good quality painting tools, as pricey as they are, will save you time and effort in the long run. For instance, a good quality paint brush or roller nap will hold much more paint, and allow you to paint the surface more evenly with fewer coats.

5. Call a professional
If you want to have your house painted but you don't have much time to stress over the work and the more subtle details of this task, have someone else to do it for you. Having an experienced, licensed, and insured painting contractor such as Custom Painting, Inc. do work is a guarantee that your money will be well spent, your house will look as good as new, and the paint job will last for many years.

House painting in Pleasant Hill is certainly a bit of work, but it doesn't have to be stressful! With the tips above, painting can be done with ease, and maybe it can even be fun!
