Do you consider yourself a “do-it-yourself” kind of person? While thoughts of “DIY” projects may conjure up images in your mind of Pinterest fails and hours of frustrating work, there are some relatively simple DIY home improvement tasks that many homeowners can get reasonably good results from. One of those tasks is painting a room in your home. Here are a few basic tips that may help you to get good results.
Put some serious thought into what color paint you’ll use. This is especially important if you’re looking to sell or rent your property. While it’s true that a new occupant can easily paint over a color that doesn’t appeal to them, having a neutral color that most people would agree is nice to look at can work in your favor when attracting potential buyers or renters. Also, don’t be afraid to invest in higher quality materials. High-quality paints and brushes make the job easier, and can help the results to last much longer.
