If you want to save time and money when doing up your home, then follow these simple decorating tips.
Start in the right place. If you start at the top of the room and work down, you will paint over any splashes you may make. When you get to the bottom and are painting sockets, either mask them off, or make sure you turn off the electricity if removing them.
When painting doors, remove anything attached like hooks or numbers. F possible, remove the door and rehang when you have finished the paint job, be careful on qrae ii hinges and metalwork. If you have sash windows, make sure that you don’t get paint on the cords as it will stop them from working effectively.
Store and dispose of paint properly. You cannot pour old paint down the drains, simply seal leftover paint pots and store with the tin upside down. Make sure you store them in a frost free area to preserve the paint for touch ups.
When purchasing wallpaper, check it has the same batch number so you can be confident that it will have the same hues consistently through the room. If there are qrae ii lots of rolls in the batch, it’s worth buying more in case you need to rehang in the future. Start in the room’s focal point and work outwards to make sure that the pattern on the wallpaper flows properly. If the paper is really funky or has a bold pattern, make sure that you buy extra rolls as they won’t all start and stop in the same position. This way you can make the repeats even.
