आफ्नो घरको भित्तालाई चम्किलो बनाउने ५ उपयोगी तरिकाः

1) Choose a wall paint that allows easy cleaning

It’s surprising to know how airborne dust can dampen your bedroom’s walls and make it look dull over time. To steer clear of this issue, choose a wall paint that allows easy cleaning.

Our luxury emulsion, Easy Clean, is the right option to keep your bedroom walls spotless. The Cross-Linking Polymers of the emulsion makse it easy for you to clean even the most stubborn stains. Learn more about our Easy Clean emulsion at http://www.bergernepal.com/product/detail/8.

2) Choose the right wall colours

Did you know prolonged exposure to sunlight causes your wall colours to fade and look dull? However, not all colours react to sunlight the same way. It’s the darker colours that do not go well with sunlight exposure. Why? Darker shades absorb more sunlight and fade due to photo degradation, the process in which sunlight breaks down the chemical bonds of the paint. On the other hand, lighter colours last longer. It’s advisable to paint your bedroom walls opposite to windows with lighter colours.

3) Add glossy look to a flat paint finish

If you used flat paint colours on your bedroom’s walls, they can look dull and form bruises over time. Give a glossy punch to your otherwise plain-looking bedroom walls the budget-friendly way by painting them with a glossy varnish. Choose a polyacrylic varnish as they ensure a long-lasting glossy finish.

4) Use wallpaper varnish

Wallpaper varnish is a softer and safer alternative or polyacrylic varnish. Compared to the latter, wallpaper varnishes are much thinner and are water-soluble. Although wallpaper varnishes come in satin and flat finishes, your best bet is to choose a glossy finish so that your bedroom wall paint gets a smooth finish.

5) Mix varnish or glazing compound

If you are yet to paint your bedroom walls or are planning to repaint them, mix a varnish or a glazing compound with the paint that you’ll apply. 10% of the overall volume of the wall paint is a good amount to start with when mixing varnish or glazing compound. Test the paint in a small wall area; if you don’t get the desired result, add more binder and test as you go until you achieve the glossy finish you want.

4 Tips that you need to consider when painting your house

When giving your home a makeover with new paint, you can be either of the two personalities: one who’s a perfectionist and, therefore, would like to get the rooms painted professionally or a creative one who’s interested in DIY and prefers to paint himself/herself.

Whoever you are, it’s important to consider a few of these factors to make sure your home painting journey is a smooth-sailing one.

घर रगाँउदा तल दिएको सुझावहरु धेरै सहयोगि हुन्छः

    1. Prepping up: often ignored but an important step
      Painting becomes convenient and less time-taking affair when you prep up the rooms in a proper way. When crafting the rooms, move the larger furniture pieces, including beds, wardrobes, sofa, dressing table, and TV cabinet to the centre. Cover them entirely with large-sized plastic to avoid buildup of dust and debris.If you have plans to just get the walls painted and not the windows, make sure to tape the adjacent windows. Also, tape light switches and other wall outlet covers.

    1. New paint doesn’t go first
      If you are planning to get your rooms painted, then you will get a hint that the walls aren’t painted straightaway. If the walls have a bare finish, a minimum of two coats of primer is applied before the paint. The primer acts as a base for the paint; think of it as using a white canvas for painting art.However, if the condition of the walls is bad and old paint has flaked, the damaged area needs to be sanded before the primer is applied. To apply two coats of primer, it requires a minimum of 2 days. Therefore, make sure to include an extra 2 or 3 days in your wall painting plan.
    2. Choose a soft neutral for a small room
      When painting small rooms in your home, softer neutrals make the right pick. A neutral colour, such as our shade, Soft Sonata (7P1954) has a softer tone which improves the breathability of the space. As such, it can make your small room feel bigger than it is.However, make sure to use other neutrals such as light grey, beige, pebble, olive, and tan to create a well-thought-out colour scheme. Mirrors reflect light; use them as decor accessories to create an illusion of a spacious look.

    1. Brush or roller?
      Should I use a brush or a roller? It’s common to come across this confusion when getting your rooms painted or painting the rooms yourself, especially for the first time. Paint experts recommend using both brush and roller; using the combination of these two can speed up the painting time.Rollers are suitable for painting the middle portion of walls while brushes come handy in applying paint on narrow edges, corners, and other small-diameter areas. Make sure that the brushes and rollers used are new and clean in order to achieve a smooth paint finish.

Here are a few painting hacks that can come handy during your home painting journey:

1. Clean your rooms’ walls the easy way
Cleaning the walls is one of the important stages when preparing your rooms for painting them new. Considering the fact that walls cover a larger portion of every room, cleaning them using a brush or a cloth piece can be time-consuming.One simple hack to clean the walls in lesser time is to use a floor cleaning brush. By using a floor brush, you can cover more wall area at one go and easily reach the upper wall corners.

 

2. Remove paint tapes the safe way
When removing the pain tapes, you’d certainly not want the current paint to chip off. To safely remove paint tapes, gently heat them using a hair dryer prior to removing them. Doing this will loosen the adhesive and make the paint tapes easy to peel off.

 

3. No more paint drips
Drips of paints are what make your rooms messy. One way to avoid paint drips on the floor is to tie a rubber band on the paint can vertically. You can use the rubber band to wipe off excess paint. Another way to avoid paint drips is to spread a plastic sheet on the floor.

 

4. Reuse paint brushes that have hardened
Paint brushes become a hard mess after first use and, therefore, become unusable for a second use. However, there is a way how you can reuse hardened paint brushes, and that is to soak them overnight in a mixture of fabric softener and warm water. The next morning, scrub the paint brushes to further remove hardened paint and they will work as good as new.

5. Avoid paint streaks the easy way
Many people rush the drying time after applying the first paint coat. As such, the second coat re-wets the first coat and causes streaks to form. To avoid this, one easy way is to allow more drying time for the second coat. Allow a day or two to make sure the first paint coat dries completely and that the second coat sets in properly.

6. Don’t clean the paint trays ever again
Cleaning paint trays is undoubtedly one of the biggest post-painting hassles you come across. To avoid this hassle, use a plastic tray liner. Take plastic dustbin bags and line the paint trays with it. When you’re done painting, simply remove the liners and discard them.
