How to prepare your room for redecorating
With decorating, it can be tempting to get cracking straight away. However, the most important aspect of decoration is the preparation you do beforehand. If you don’t have all the necessary tools to do the job it may be cheaper to walk into your nearest tool hire shop. By investing time in preparation, you are more likely to get a professional finish.
There are many methods of painting, and rollers, pads and paint pods all help to make the job quicker and easier. Irrespective of which method you choose, it is worth getting some small brushes for cutting in trickier areas, for example around window frames. Also buy plenty of masking tape to protect skirting boards, light switches and glass.
