Changing the Placement of the Furniture

Before you start the painting job for your home, you need to change the placement of your home furniture. The job is quite complex, but proper planning will help you to complete the job with tidiness. Painting work should be done strategically so that you do not have to fall into the mess with furniture displacement. You should start it from the rooms. For example, you need to start with the bedrooms. The bedroom furniture can be kept in the living room area for some time. It takes 2-3 days to complete painting for the room. At first, it starts with primer paint. Then, real painting gets started. For doing this job, you may need to keep the following things in mind.

  • The furniture should be covered well, as splashes of paints can damage them permanently. Thus, you can cover the furniture with plastic sheets.
  • If you have low space for displacing the furniture, you need to go for a strategic method of painting. At first, you need to move the furniture towards one wall so that the other side of the wall can be painted. Then, furniture should be moved to the opposite direction for getting the opposite side of the wall painted.
  • Some furniture can be dismantled with regular carpenter tools. Once the painting job is done, the furniture can be assembled once again.

Enhance Your Knowledge

To conduct the painting job, you need to work on your basic knowledge. You should try to enhance your knowledge as much as possible. This should start with the process of understanding the different types of paints. Different kinds of paints are there for different purposes. For example, you have exterior paint, and you also have interior paints. Exterior paints are more durable than interior paint, though interior paint looks more attractive than exterior paint. Depending on materials, you can find water based and oil based paints. Water-based paints are mostly used for painting the walls of the houses. However, in a few cases, oil paints can also be used. In the kitchen, using oil paint is not a rare thing. However, oil paint is majorly used to paint the wooden furniture or doorway as well as window frameworks.
