Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About Painting

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About PaintingWhen you decide to redo your kitchen and / or your bathroom, you’re taking on a significant undertaking. If you’re like most people, you likely have a lot of questions. Not only do you need to find the best kitchen and bathroom materials, you need to find the right designs, plan your home’s makeover – and those are just the first steps.

At Mission West Kitchen and Bath, we understand how many different facets there are to redecorating a home. While we’re here to provide you with quality plumbing fixtures, cabinets, and much more, we can also help you make informed choice for other aspects of your home. Regardless of the style or color you’re adding to your walls, here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions about painting.

What’s the best type of paint to use for a kitchen? What about a bathroom?

No matter what room you’re painting, you want a quality paint. You also want a paint that matches your style, whether matte, glossy or in-between. When it comes to your kitchen or bathroom, you also need to consider mildew and mold. These are rooms that tend to have more moisture and you’re going to want to choose a paint that’s specifically made to be mildew and mold resistant.

How do we use different colors if your home has an open concept?

There’s a lot to love about a home that’s designed with an open concept. Unfortunately, there can be downsides too. For example, how do you paint one room a different color if you can see them all from each room? The answer is that you can use different colors – as long as you stay within the same color family.

What type of brushes or rollers are best?

The main thing is to make sure that you’re using a roller that works with the type of paint you’re using. You’ll find that some paint brands suggest roller types and sizes to help their paint go on smoothly and to end up with the right texture. If you use a roller that’s too big, then you could end up with a heavy texture on the finished product. Higher quality brushes are more likely to leave a good finish on the wall compared to cheaper brushes.

How can we save the most money when painting your home?

We know you don’t want to hear it, but the truth is that painting is not something you want to cut corners on. You want to use a quality paint and you want quality materials to get it on. However, using a lower quality ceiling paint is fine for most people. If you choose to paint several rooms at once, you can also save on the materials needed to clean up and prep.
