Whether you want to give your room a whole new appearance or just want to change a wall’s feel by adding up new flare of colors, you need to master the art of using paint rollers. Since the invention of paint rollers, the use of paint brushes has reduced in a drastic way. The reason is simple, paint rollers are fast, hassle free and work smooth on the wall. So if you are in mood of painting your wall with your hands instead of getting Painting Services in Dubai, then here are 5 easy steps for painting your walls smoothly.
Pick the Color:
The first and most essential part of this activity is to select a color that you want to give your walls. I’m sure you’ll have so many ideas running inside your head and this is where this process appears to be a hectic task. If you want to paint a particular wall then you may look around and see what color the other walls have. And if you’re planning to renovate the space from scratch, pick a color and try different shades of it. This way you can easily come up with a color selection and the idea of using different grades of that particular color would add an artistic touch in your walls.
Arrange the Tools:
After selecting the desired color that you want to give your wall, the next step is to arrange for all the equipment needed to paint using a roller. So first, you need a roller (for sure) and along with that, a square pan having exact width as the roller has. You’ll also require a good handle for a firmer grip while painting the wall. If you don’t want to refill the pan again and again, try using a wide paint bucket that you carry from one side to the other. These are the most essential tools that you need to paint a wall using rollers.
Before you start off the painting process and color your wall, make sure the wall is cleaned using a simple dusting cloth. This will help you keeping the process smooth and uninterrupted by the dust particles and you’ll have more positive results after painting the wall. When you start painting the wall, you need to paint it in a ‘W’ pattern to cover a wider area by making fewer movements. You may choose the starting point according to your comfort just be sure to stick with the direction and be very careful while painting near wall corners. Because you wouldn’t want to leave stains or marks on adjacent walls so you may slow down the process when painting corners.
While using the pan, experiencing faded paint is common so you need to be careful about it. The roller absorbs a limited quantity of paint from the pan and as you move it up and down on the wall, it fades away. If you want smooth paint all across the wall, you need to maintain the wetness of the paint on your roller. So after a few movements, you need to dampen the roller again and when the pan has lesser paint, add more from the paint bucket.
Before you assume that the work is done and you’re all set to enjoy your newly painted wall, there is still much to do. After when you’ve covered the wall with your selected color, you need to make sure that each area has equal amount of paint. If you miss to do so, it might give an impression that the wall is painted by a non-professional. So stand at a considerable distance and examine each area careful and paint any odd area to finish the job. Enjoy!
