Tips on Preparing for Your Interior Project
Painting multiple rooms in your home is a fun and exciting time, but it can definitely cause a few headaches and be a bit stressful. While the end result will be a home that feels more personal or updated, it can get frustrating to have painters in your home. Not to worry though, as Spectrum Painting is here to help make the process a little easier by prioritizing which rooms should be painted first.
With 30 years of experience, here is a prioritized list we’ve put together along the way:
- Bedroom and bathroom: Painting these two rooms first will get them out of the way and allow you to feel at home even if the rest of the house is still being prepped and painted. You will also be able to shut off your room from the paint smells, if any. Most paint is low to no VOC, so lingering smells shouldn't be an issue.
- Kitchen: It is best to paint the kitchen as one of the first few rooms since this is where most families tend to congregate. Getting the kitchen done right in the beginning can cut down on going out to eat, as you’ll be able to stay home and cook!
- Living/family room: This is likely one of the largest rooms in your home, so it might take longer; however, once it is finished, you will be able to move your furniture back and enjoy your freshly painted room.
- Laundry room/mudroom: Painting these rooms last usually works out as customers will sometimes store items, clothing, etc. in these areas while other rooms are being worked on. Also, many mud rooms are used at the main entrance and exit of homes, so you’ll be able to come and go as you please, whether it’s going to work, picking up the kids from school or heading out to pick up some donuts and coffee for your fantastic crew as a thank you!
Fun Fact: If part of your project includes refinishing your kitchen cabinets, Spectrum does suggest emptying them out before we begin prep so nothing becomes dusty, like food or your plates and mugs!
