Ace It In Three: Tips On Painting A Room

1) What type of sheen should I pick for my home?

Sheen selection is dependent on the type of room you’re painting. If you’re painting a kitchen, bathroom, or a high traffic area, choose a glossier sheen like a satin or peal. For a bedroom, choose a softer sheen like an eggshell. Lastly, for a low traffic area or a show casing room, choose a matte finish. The matte finish absorbs light and warm a room.

2) How do  I prep the walls?

If you do not prep your walls properly, your paint job could turn out sub-par. Wash the walls with a gentle soap and water formula. Remove any water streaks, dust, or stuck on dirt.  

3) What are the best tools for he job?

Investing in your tools is something your will not regret. Yes, you will spend a bit more money, but they will last for every paint job after.
