Sometimes the difference between liking and loving your home can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint. Just as we may look in the mirror and identify that it’s time for a new look, the same can be said of our living space. Freshening up your space does not only offer the feeling of a new room, but also gives you the opportunity to customize the color and design to compliment your furnishings and suit your personal tastes.
With three Benjamin Moore locations in Edmonton and area, you’re sure to find a location near you which offers both the products and the advice to successfully refresh your home. With a wide selection of paints and stains, we’ve got you covered for all of your interior and exterior projects.
One of the best things about home painting projects is that they are ideal for the do-it-yourselfer and don’t require the expense of hiring a professional. Equipped with the right tools for the job and with a plan of action, you can be as actively involved in creating the mood and feel of your room as you are with the selection of furnishings and décor.
For Best Results
Before you dip your first brush or paint roller, there are a few steps to take to ensure that you’ll be pleased with the results. First, you should do a thorough examination of your walls and surfaces to be painted and ensure that you address any imperfections. Any holes, cracks or other irregularities in the surface will not be obscured with a fresh coat of paint. Be sure to fill these in sand them accordingly so that you’re working with a flat, even surface.
Think ahead to how you plan to reach the high areas of your painting project. Many homeowners are finding that it is better to use an extension pole with a telescoping handle with their paint roller to ensure an even application of paint across their whole wall, and it saves the perils of balancing from a ladder while working.
While modern rollers and brushes are designed to hold onto more of the paint to ensure that it reaches its intended destination, don’t forget that painting can be a messy job, so be sure to have a drop cloth in place to prevent any spillage on floors and counter surfaces. While plastic is often a cheaper option, some experienced painters suggest that a cloth style of tarp is better as it stays in place better and prevents tripping hazards and disruption as you move about your work space.
Don’t forget the painters tape. Applying painters tape at the perimeter of your paint area ensures clean, sharp lines and prevents unintentional painting on moldings and door frames as well as outlet plates and light switches.
