How to Speed up Your House Painting Project

How to Speed up Your House Painting Project

Painting your house is a fun way to give it a fresh new appearance with a personal touch. Preparing your home, choosing colours, selecting paint, cleaning up, and other myriad tasks can make the paint job last weeks. It can be exhausting to move all your furniture out of the way, cover switchboards, protect the floor, and so on. And if you don’t do that, you’ll have paint splatter everywhere and cleaning the floor, furniture and switchboards can seem like a nightmare. Many people who are motivated to paint their homes put it off because they fear it will just take too long. However, with the proper gear and some planning, you could have a clean and vibrant house in no time. With these tips, you'll be able to speed up the process and take the pain out of painting.

Prepare Your Home

Before you start painting your walls, you'll need to remove all your furniture, photo frames, wall art, mirrors, and other furnishings. And it doesn't stop there. You’ll need to cover your doors with newspaper or plastic sheets. It’s a good idea to use masking to cover window panels, switches, and everything else that you don't want to get paint on. Invest in high-quality, easy-to-tear masking tape to expedite this process. If you have furniture that is too large or delicate, consider covering them well to protect against dust and paint spills.

To really speed up the process, you can contact an expert painting service. Check whether they come with a range of furniture and floor covers to prevent you from moving too much around. They will also be adept at using masking tape to seal the covers as well as protect the fixtures and switches.

Prepare the Walls

Preparing the walls you’re planning to paint is the first step to a successful painting project. That means you will need to wash surfaces, sand them and repair every surface imperfection. Using a mechanical pressure washer can help you clean surfaces faster. To clean surfaces that require special attention, such as glass windows, be sure to use a pressure washer with intensity regulators and adjustable nozzles. 

When sanding, make sure to use a facemask to protect your lungs from inhaling dust. The quantity of dust produced by sanding is immense, and it causes a lot of mess that will need to be cleaned up later. Consider hiring professionals who use sanding machines with vacuum ducts. This will ensure that most of the dust released during the process is sucked in and trapped into the vacuum bag. This will not only protect the health of your loved ones, but also simplify the clean-up at the end of the project. With less dust, the clean-up will be super-fast.

Simplify Choosing Colours 

Choosing a colour palette for your home can be time consuming. After all, there are hundreds of colours. When you think about combinations and textures, the confusion grows. But this doesn't have to be the case. To create beautiful colour combinations, you can use an online colour catalogue that offers suggestions. So, when you choose a colour, the catalogue will suggest the best complementing and contrasting shades. Using such a tool can make the selection faster and better. You can also use a Colour Horoscope tool to discover your lucky colours by simply inputting your birthday. If you are unsure whether the colours will look great on your walls, use a Virtual Painter to gauge how they'll look together. 

Expedite The Painting

When choosing paint, look for high-quality paints that are easy to apply, such as Berger interior paint and Nippon Paints. By using a Paint Calculator available on, you can avoid the hassle of stopping the painting process because you need to run out and get more paint. The amount of paint required is generally determined by square footage, surface type, painting area, and other parameters, all of which are taken into account by the Paint Calculator. 

While it is possible to paint your walls simply by dipping brushes and rollers in paint and spreading it, there are options to help you paint faster and more precisely. A mechanised roller, for example, that automatically pumps paint would greatly expedite paint application. You could also use an airless paint sprayer to apply paint faster and more evenly than you could with a brush. You can always rely on expert painting services to make the painting process faster, cleaner, and safer. Berger Paints Express Painting service, for example, provides on-site consultations and estimates of the quantity of paint required to complete the job. Certified painters who follow strict COVID-19 protocols is the need of the hour. These painters will use mechanised tools to complete preparation and painting of your home a lot quicker while leaving no brush marks on the walls. Moreover, they will do a thorough cleaning and disinfection to eliminate germs and remove any paint spills and stains.
