4 Things to do to Prepare Your Interior for Denver Painters

Paint contractors understand that, ideally, your Denver painters should be in and out of your home as quickly as possible when it comes to interior paint jobs.

Painting companies want to ensure we’re doing the best work possible and get you back to a normal space as seamlessly as possible. For that process to move quickly, there are a few things homeowners can do to assist with making interior paint jobs efficiently.

Moving Furniture

Interior paint jobs are a bit more tedious than exterior jobs. Moving heirlooms or delicate furniture away from walls or doorframes ensures safety for those items. If you need assistance to move these items, please notify the Paint Denver Team Leader and we’ll take extra care to keep these pieces of furniture safe. For regular pieces of furniture, we will cover and protect the furniture and floors.

To assist with efficient prep work, removing small, fragile, and expensive objects from the rooms that are to be painted would help our team immensely. Any china should especially be emptied from china cabinets and moved away from work areas. Emptying bookcases and removing paintings, pictures, posters, and manageable mirrors from the walls would also speed up the prep work.

Wall Plate Removal

It’s an easy thing to forget. These little plastic fixtures are all removed, put away, then replaced by our crews before and after a job. We want to be sure there aren’t any bare spots where the paint doesn’t cover.

Remove these, along with any vent and return covers and shorten the painting process by a few minutes!

Floor Coverings

We’ll provide these for any job, but if you have sheets and other unused, old fabrics you want to use for protection, set them out!

Our Denver painters always come prepared, but these extra tools may help keep the space protected from accidental spills or splatter.

Prepping the Details

There are a dozen little things our team does to prep a space for interior paint. We clean all surfaces including walls, ceiling, and trim. It’s not always obvious, but these surfaces collect dust, pet hair, and sawdust overtime and could interfere with the quality of the paint job.

We also cover any imperfections in the surfaces with drywall patching. This ensures smooth, perfect paint application.

Most painting companies, like Paint Denver, are happy to do this ourselves. But doing them ahead of time may speed up your home improvement timeline.

Stress Free Interior Painting

Of course, you could just kick up your feet, relax, and let Pain Denver’s team of professional painters take the lead.

We’re happy to prep and paint your interior and keep the home improvement process as stress-free as possible. If you have a painting project in mind, we invite you to schedule your free estimate!

Interior Painting Best Practices

When it comes to interior painting, many people think they can do a DIY job as well as the pros. That is not quite the case. Professional painters have mastered their trade and know a few tips and best practices that take their work from good to great.

Get Good Quality Paint

Many people think all interior paints are made equal. This could not be more untrue. Investing in quality paint will make a huge difference in the short and long run of your interior paint job. That’s why at Paint Denver use only the best quality Sherwin Williams paint with low VOCs to do out interior painting work. We want our customers to love their new home interior as soon as they see it as well as years down the road.

Order Matters

When tackling an interior painting job, the order in which you paint a room is crucial. It is typically best to start with the trim and baseboards and ensure they dry completely before moving on to the ceiling and walls. This ensures any accidental paint from the trim that got on the wall edges can be covered up.

Take all Necessary Precautions

We’ve all heard the horror stories of people who didn’t fully prepare for an interior paint job and ended up painting their floor or, even worse, a piece of furniture. To avoid this mishap, preparation is key. Use canvas or plastic drop cloths to protect floors, cover large furniture that can’t be moved out of the room with plastic, and use masking or painters tape generously along wall edges.

Interior painting is a task that can be easily done wrong. While there are some tips and tricks that can make the process go a bit more smoothly, nothing can beat the work of an expert interior professional painter. Paint Denver offers interior painting in Denver as well as Broomfield, Castle Rock, Golden and other surrounding areas. For help on your next Denver interior painting project, contact Paint Denver to get a quality job done quickly and efficiently.

Painting Your Rooms Can Change The Energy

Here in Colorado, waking up to sunshine and blue sky fills you with energy. And on the rare occasion we have a cool, dark, rainy day, nothing feels better than snuggling under a blanket for a little while longer.

Color fills you with energy. The warm yellow sun and blue sky makes you want to run and jump, heading out to enjoy the day. Dark smoky blues and grays fill you more with an internal energy, ready to take things a bit slower.

And while it holds true with the colors we readily face in nature, it also holds true for the colors you wake up to every morning.Paint Your Rooms and Change The Energy

Color can be in abundance, painted on every wall in a room. Or color can be accented and highlighted in a way that makes it burst through in subtle detail.

If you’re ready for a change, color may be the perfect way to bring it to life. And give you the energy to take on new tasks you’ve put on hold from the months and years before. Here’s what color can do for you.

Orange is the perfect color when you’re ready to feel younger. Orange allows you to express yourself with confidence, filling your home with laughter and celebration.

A deep blue will encourage efficiency throughout your room. Blues purify your thinking process so you can cut through the clutter and discover what is most important. If you have to make a big decision, deep blue will bring out the decision maker in you.

A light blue promotes tranquility, and bring peace and harmony to relationships and situations as they occur. Light blue reduces aggressiveness, so it’s a good color to surround yourself in if you deal with a lot of stress.

Dig Deeper – How To Choose Color With Paint Samples

Green increases wealth. It’s the color of fresh starts and of growth. If you’re ready to manifest something new in your life, add richness with the color green.

A light purple brings out your spiritual side. Purple encourages a fresh perspective on your emotional side, and will remind you of all you are connected to in your life.

A bright red will stimulate you. It promotes courage and fearlessness, and is a color associated with high self confidence. Red is good in moderation, but too much can leave you agitated and overly excited.

Yellow increases your focus. It’s noted for enhancing your intelligence and can help stimulate clarity and conversation.

Classic Color Combinations When Painting Your Rooms

Looking for a project to improve the look and feel of one of your rooms? Look no further than the color on your walls.

Classic Color Combinations When Painting Your RoomsOne of the easiest ways to change a rooms look and feel is also one of easiest to do. Choose a paint color for your walls. Add a few new accessories that make the color pop, and you’ll fall in love with your home all over again.

Sounds easy enough. But have you ever looked at the number of color options available to you? Where do you start? What do you choose?

As a professional painter, my job is more than handling a roller and a brush. One of the things I enjoy most is helping a homeowner select the right color for the room … then seeing the final results and enjoying the reactions.

For some people, they change paint on the walls almost as frequently as they do the wardrobe in their closets. For others, painting is a big job and not one they want to repeat for a long, long time. For those people, I always recommend sticking with classic color combinations that will truly stand the test of time.

Black and White

What can be more sophisticated that the classic look of black and white? Keep the walls a simple yet elegant shade of white. Add furniture in shades of white. Then let the black come in to play with curtains, flooring and accessories. You can even change out “pops” of color – such as red pillows – for a very quick change according to seasons or even moods.

Red and Gold

Have you ever visited a true Renaissance or Victorian home that has kept with the time period? You’ll find red and gold throughout. Red has always been a favorite for rooms like the dining room where guests gather and relax for hours at a time. In the past, red could evoke the feeling of warmth – something necessary when central heating didn’t exist. But the look has held and carried on to today.

Robins Egg Blue, Yellow and Cream

Think French countryside. You’ll find these colors if you visit historic sites throughout France, which dates back to the times of Louis XI and Louis XIV. You’ll even find these colors as a staple in many top brands today – Tiffany’s and Martha Stewart have always graced these colors over the years. It’s a classic look that will bring peace and tranquility to your bedrooms.

Green and Yellow

What could be better than bringing the outdoors in to your home? That’s why greens and yellows continue to work together and will always provide a classic look. Try yellow walls and accents in green … a green plant, green furniture, or green draperies are the perfect complement. And if nature tells us these colors work well together, who are we to argue? Use them and feel a sense of harmony whenever you enter your room.
