Home Transformation: Painting with Professionals



Meet Luka

He's just bought a new apartment

Luka now wants to paint his house, but is confused between painting it himself or hiring professionals to do it for him

Luka decides to consult his friend


"Well I do have the time. But what if I mess it up?" Luka asked, nervously.

"Ah you won't. There are so many tutorials now on how to do it yourself! Like this one" His friend opened a website.

"So you see? It's really simple to paint your own home! Plus it will give you the whole creative power. Paint it however you want!"

"I don't like the idea of doing it all by myself. It's better if I leave it to the professionals" Luka said.

"Alright. That works too. Let me give you the contact for the guys I hired. They were excellent" His freind forwarded him the contact details.


"The hiring process was really simple you guys!" Luka exclaims as he opens the door to the painters he had hired through HomeTriangle.

"Yeah, they try to make it as convenient as possible for both parties involved" one of the painters replied.

Just like Luka, you too can get your house painted by professionals available at HomeTriangle! With a wide range of services available, you can find a service for almost anything you need. But for the purpose of this bog, we'll focus on painting.

Painting your house can be a mamoth task, regardless of whether you have done it before. It takes careful planning and execution. If you are experienced then you probably are not sweating about doing it by yourself. But if it's your first time, well there's nothing to be scared of. You just have to be careful and take a few things in consideration.

Things to keep in mind

1. Proper Preparation

Before you start painting, it's crucial to prepare the surfaces properly. This includes cleaning the walls to remove dirt, dust, and grease. Repair any cracks, holes, or imperfections with spackling compound or filler, and sand the surfaces to create a smooth finish. Additionally, protect areas that you don't want to be painted, such as trim, floors, and furniture, with drop cloths or painter's tape.

2. Choosing the Right Tools and Materials

Selecting the appropriate tools and materials is essential for achieving a professional-looking paint job. Invest in high-quality brushes, rollers, and paint trays that are suitable for the specific type of paint you're using. Different surfaces may require different brushes or rollers, so ensure you have the right tools for the job. Additionally, choose paint that is appropriate for the surface and desired finish, whether it's interior or exterior paint, latex or oil-based, and the appropriate sheen level.

3. Proper Painting Techniques

Applying paint with proper techniques can make a significant difference in the final result. Start with cutting in, which involves using a brush to paint along edges, corners, and trim before using a roller on larger areas. Use smooth and even strokes, applying consistent pressure. Avoid overloading the brush or roller with too much paint to prevent drips or streaks. For the best coverage, apply multiple thin coats rather than one thick coat. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next.

Bonus point

Don't forget to properly ventilate. It is very important that you kep your place properly ventilated during the painting process, especially when using oil-based paints or when painting in enclosed spaces. Those fumes are very harmful for your body if you keep inhaling it for a long period of time. And seeing how you are going to be painting the whole house, and not some small cup, it is an absolute must that you cover your face. Open windows or use of fans to ensure good airflow is a good solution. It'll not only circulate air, but also help dry the pain faster.

To add on to this, you don't always have to go the same route of painting your house a random color. There are so many ways to paint your house creatively than you know. Invest some time in reading about creative wall painting and make it appear unique. Or even better, add your own twist to it, to make it YOUR perfect home.

Now let's get back to Luka and see how his experience with the HomeTriangle service went.


The next day Luka called up with friend

"Dude! They did an excellent job! I didn't expect it to be that good honestly"

"I told you" his friend smirked

"Yeah I just told them what color I wanted and they went through all the details about paints and stuff. They told me how much everything is going to cost so I could adjust according to the budget"

"Wow that's really great Luka! So you think you are going to hire them again the next time or do it yourself next time?"

Luka was VERY confident what he was going to do the next time. He was another happy customer added to the list of satisfied customers under the banner of HomeTriangle.
