Jessica needs a helping hand to repaint his apartment in full: “Hello, I have to repaint my new apartment in full, I do not know where to start and I do not know which color to choose! Thank you! Jessica. ” Hello Jessica, here are the steps:
Choice of colors
The first thing to do is determine the colors you like. As this is an apartment and you will move eventually, I advise you to choose colors fairly neutral. This way you will not have to repaint before leaving as is the case when the colors are way too colorful and too typed, like orange or lime green!Many landlords require to return the apartment in neutral colors before leaving. White, beige, gray, etc. are fairly neutral colors that coordinate with practically everything and give an effect of grandeur and space. If you have any hesitation, you can request the services of a private designer or even consulting designate who work in home centers and some that offer this service free of charge.
Paint the ceiling
Once your choice is down, you start by making the ceiling using a paint finish “mat ceiling.” In this way, the droplets that could fall on the walls will disappear when the walls. You can make color even if it is to paint the ceiling.
Paint the walls
Then you paint the trim and framing before the walls, then you end up with baseboards. For walls, you can use to paint a velvet finish, and for all frames, moldings and baseboards you can finish “gloss” finish or “doors and moldings,” which washes very well. As for the bathroom and the kitchen, you should use the paint finish “kitchen and bathroom,” designed to resist moisture that can be found in these parts.
