Interior House Painting Tips in Kenilworth
These are the most important walls to get right and implement interior house painting tips in Kenilworth because the biggest mistake people make when doing this type is not sealing their walls. The most common reason is cost cutting which is fine until the paint falls of the walls, and then it’s a huge job. I’ve seen it first hand and it’s an ugly situation you don’t want to be in. Literally the whole house will end up this way and it’s a job that never ends so don’t scrimp on your sealer.
So a good quality oil based sealer binder is the answer. It does exactly what it says. It seals from moisture and other elements and binds the surface together to give you a nice surface that your finish coats can grab hold of and stick hard to. You’ll get no peeling dramas or paint falling off later down the track and it’ll never have to be done again. Now try to use good quality paint where it counts especially when it comes to painting walls. Walls get marked easily, animals lean against them and furniture scuffs up against them.
Now a pretty standard coating system for painting walls has always been and for 24 plus years of my painting life is low sheen acrylic - it’s very washable with might I add warm soapy water… a touch of dishwashing liquid usually does the trick. Low Sheen Acrylic is very user friendly if it’s a fairly premium product is very nice and easy to apply. So don’t forget when applying paints use two coats and get a nice thick durable coat on.
Well that is all for painting plaster walls, stay tuned for more interior painting tips in my next post of home painting.
