Preparation & Application
A fresh coat of paint can often be all it takes to change the look and feel of a space or piece of furniture with minimal investment.
Before you begin to choose a decorating scheme, it’s a good idea to think about the look you’re aiming to achieve and how you will use the space. If you’re painting a dining room, cloakroom or hallway – where you spend less time or pass through quickly - you can afford to be more daring if you wish.
The key to a beautifully painted space or piece of furniture is preparation. Take the time to make sure your surfaces are clean and clear of dirt, grit and dust, make sure any holes or cracks are filled in and always use an appropriate undercoat or primer for optimum effect. We always advise a minimum of two coats to achieve the perfect depth of colour.
Consider preparing your spaces as much as possible. Remove any furniture or cover with sheets to avoid marking and use tape where possible to protect door frames, windows, skirting from smudges and blurred lines.
