Painting the bedroom refreshes.

You can paint a bedroom yourself and painting a bedroom gives a fresh look.

I personally always enjoy painting a bedroom. I know you spend most of your time there sleeping, but it’s still nice to give your bedroom a nice refresh.

You will have to determine in advance which colors you want. Nowadays you can find a lot of tips and advice on the internet and take advantage of it.

How to paint a bedroom

You can of course also go to a paint store to ask for advice on which color you want. Take photos with you on your mobile so you can show them what your furniture is. On the basis of this you can discuss together which colors would suit it. Plan in advance when you want to start and when you want to be finished. This way you put some pressure on yourself that you want to meet that deadline. Also do the purchasing of the materials such as latex, paint, rollers, brushes and so on. Also take a look at my paint shop.

Painting a bedroom and the preparatory work.

When painting a bedroom, it is easier that the space is empty. Think in advance where you can store that furniture for so long. Then you will disassemble the rails. Also remove the door handles and any other mounting material. Then cover your floor. Use a plaster runner for this and make sure that it is properly connected. Tape the adjacent strips with duck tape. Do the same for the skirting boards. This way you can be sure that you will not get paint splatters on your floor.

Painting a bedroom what order should you choose.

When painting a bedroom you have to follow a certain order. You always start with the woodwork first. You will degrease this first. Do this with an all-purpose cleaner. I myself use B-clean for this. I use this because B-clean is biodegradable and you don’t have to rinse. Click here for more information. Then you will sand everything and make it dust-free. Finally apply primer and finish. Then you will clean the ceiling and walls. When these are clean you can start painting the ceiling. Finally, you will paint the walls. If you follow this order you have a perfect planning. Would you do it the other way around, so first ceiling and walls and then woodwork then you get all the sanded dust on your ceiling and walls.

Painting a bedroom can be done yourself.

You can basically paint a bedroom yourself. This really doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think. What are you afraid of? Are you afraid you will spill? Or that you are completely covered by the paint yourself? After all, this doesn’t matter. You’re in your own house after all. Nobody sees you, right? It’s just a matter of trying and doing. If you don’t try, you won’t know. You can give a lot of tips and advice on my blog. I have also made many videos on You tube where you can get inspiration. Look at that. I have a search function at the top right of my site where you can enter your keyword and that blog will come up straight away. You can also use resources. Like a painter’s tape. This allows you to create nice straight lines. In short, there are enough resources. I can certainly imagine that you do not want to paint yourself! Then I have a tip for you.
