Learn about some DIY home painting secrets and painting ideas from our experts for achieving a perfectly smooth and even paint job!

Painting an accent wall or giving a quick paint touch-up is one of the easiest and most popular do-it-yourself projects in a home since a fresh coat of paint is an affordable transformation to a room. While bigger, more elaborate home painting requirements should be left to the professionals, a quick painting project or wall paint design is something most people can accomplish in a jiffy (armed with the right tools and knowledge, of course!).

Before you get started on home wall painting, read these seven secrets of DIY home painting:

DIY Home Painting Secret #1: Paint on a dry day

It is recommended to paint your house on a dry, sunny day. Try not to begin a home painting project on a rainy day when humidity levels are generally high, making it very difficult to paint. This will also increase paint drying time so you will have to wait much longer in between coats.

DIY Home Painting Secret #2: Cover everythinghall painting images

No one wants to clean a messy house after painting. To minimise the mess, you must cover everything. From something as large as your sofa to something as small as a switchboard. Any surface or furniture that happens to be in close reach of the area you are painting is very likely to get paint drips on them.

DIY Home Painting Secret #3: Spray whenever possible

Especially for wooden or metal surfaces, spray painting can save you time, ensure a uniform finish and can actually prove to be a fun, stress-busting activity! Berger iPaint Spray Paint comes in 13 fantastic colours, from a pure white to a bright golden yellow to a statement black, making it an ideal choice for a quick DIY makeover.

DIY Home Painting Secret #5: Always paint from top to bottom

If there is one tip expert painters vouch by for quality painting, it is this! Painting from top to bottom ensures a uniform finish and a truly professional look to the walls. If you were to make random strokes with the brush on the walls, the result is going to be shabby and untidy. So always take your brush from the top to bottom.

DIY Home Painting Secret #6: Wash the brush and roller with water after usepaint tools images

If you’re taking breaks in between painting or once you have finished the painting task, it is best to wash the brush and roller with water to prevent it from drying on your painting tools.

DIY Home Painting Secret #7: Line your paint tray

Line your paint tray with plastic tray liners, a piece of tin foil or a plastic bag so you can easily clean your paint tray when done by throwing out the liner instead of having to scrub all the excess paint.
