In a typical home, you’re going to have at least a couple of bedrooms, perhaps even three, and of all the bedrooms one of them is going to be the main bedroom reserved for the owner or owners of the home – it’s a rare house that has the kids living in the master bedroom, for example.
The important thing to bear in mind when you are painting your bedroom is that your bedroom can look excellent if you take the time to learn some good techniques to get it done in a timely manner — and done well enough that you won’t have to look at doing it again for quite a while.
One thing that is a good idea when you’re getting ready to paint your master bedroom is to plan your painting work well in advance.
The reason that this is the case is that in painting a master bedroom, you have to consider a schedule for the painting as well as what materials are going to be needed – including the paint and the primer that will be used.
In considering how much paint and primer you will need, you are best off measuring the surfaces and once you know how much there is to be painted you will be able to calculate the amount of paint needed as well as how long you’re going to need to paint.
When you know how long it’s going to take to paint the room, you will be able to schedule when you are going to let your surfaces dry (more on this in a bit) and optimize it.
One of the first steps of getting your room well painted is to make sure that the surfaces being painted are properly cleaned first.
The reason that this is the case is that you don’t want to paint over a dirty surface — it’s not going to be difficult to tell that the wall used to be dirty and will have the appearance of a dirty wall with paint on it.
In painting any given interior space, you are going to want to make sure that the space is properly ventilated.
Even when you have paints that are low in VOC content, you still have to ventilate the area where you are painting – the fumes that come from the painting are not going to be pleasant no matter what kind of paint you are using.
After every step of the process of painting your master bedroom, it’s good and important to allow the surface to fully dry.
Even though it can be one of the dullest parts of the painting process (and therefore a reason why you should make sure that you plan the process well) it’s important – for when you paint over a moist surface, you are looking at getting painting problems later on.
By just taking the time to allow surfaces to dry, you can avoid these issues – and it’s just a matter of time.
Lastly, think about how smooth the surface of your bedroom walls are before you get about to painting them.
If you apply a coat of primer before you apply the first coat of paint (and of course you allow time for the coat of primer to dry first!) you will find that the paint will adhere to the surface much better.
Additionally, primer is essential to having the paint go onto the surface more easily.
