Ultimate List Of Painting Mistakes One Should Avoid

In our last segment, we shared with you some of the common painting mistakes that people make. We just found out that you all have been there as many of you wrote back with painting goof-ups that you have made. Whether it was hiring an amateur painter or not spending money on high-quality tools, our readers shared with us how they went from picture-perfect to design disasters. With the help of our readers, we have compiled the ultimate list of painting mistakes one should avoid.  

1. Buying cheap brushes and rollers: While home renovation projects tend to be expensive, it may make sense to cut corners wherever possible. However, it would not be prudent to cut costs by going for the cheapest tools available. Low-quality brushes, rollers and paint sprays will not give the paint good coverage. They will also not long last. An uneven job will force you to change the tools midway. What may seem like saving money will cost you in the long run. 

2. Hiring amateur painter:  When you hire a professional painter, the end job looks professional. When you hire an amateur to save money, you end up with botched up work. It best to hire a professional painter or paint company to paint your home. The equipment that professional painters bring along with them, the efficiency with which they work and the amazing quality of work they do are all unmatchable.

3. Not waiting for the first coat of paint to dry: You can kill the look of your wall by painting the second coat without letting the first coat dry. It’s best to read the instructions on the paint carefully rather than relying on guesswork. It is best to way for at least 24 hours before applying the second coat of paint.

4. Skipping undercoats: The undercoats have a specific job to do. They are meant to prepare the wall for the topcoats. They prevent paint colors from bleeding through and provide adhesion and smooth surface.  When you skip applying undercoats, you end up with uneven coverage. Moreover, without an undercoat, the wall soaks too of paint, increasing the cost of your painting work.

5. Not taking the weather into consideration: Whether you are painting the exterior of your house or interior, it’s a must that you take weather into consideration. Painting your house when the humidity levels are high is not recommended. Moisture in the air can make it difficult for the paint to dry. Summer is usually the most appropriate time to paint. Warm and dry weather ensures that you will be done with your painting job quickly.

When working on the exterior decor of your home, the walls are one of the most important decor elements to consider. Whether you want to play with textures or experiment with different exterior wall paint colors to achieve the right look, there are endless options for you to choose from.

To make things easier for you, we’ve listed down a few creative exterior wall decor ideas. Enjoy the interesting read below:

1) Nature-inspired decor

Mother nature is the best artist; by using natural elements, you cannot go wrong in creating an intriguing aesthetic. One creative way to make your home’s exterior walls look nature-inspired is to keep climbing plants.

Paint the walls with our aqua blue shade Gaugin’s Blue (5T1156) to create a vibrant backdrop which artistically complements the plant’s color.

2) Modern meets rustic

What happens when you create the right mix of modern and rustic in your exterior walls? Magic! This decor idea requires a bit of work but it’s totally worth it. Keep a vintage-looking iron bench in front of one of the exterior walls (the wall facing the garden makes the best spot).

Accessorise the bench with a wooden crate with clusters of flowers placed on it. Complete the look by painting the walls with our bright yellow shade Yellow Zodiac (3A0388).

3) A welcoming look

What better way to impress your guests than by creating a welcoming look in the exterior walls? Choose an iron welcome signage and install it on the front exterior wall of your home. Match the rigid texture of the signage with large-sized ceramic flower pots. To nail the look, use our classic neutral shade, Palace Walls (7P0188).

4) A little something for the garden walls

Who said you can’t be creative with the design of your garden’s walls? One inexpensive way to spruce up the garden walls is to keep a hanging wooden shelf. Accessorise the shelf with small potted plants and colorful mason jars.

To highlight the shelf, create a neutral backdrop by painting the walls with our balanced white shade White Sphere (8P2679).

5) A vintage appeal

Nothing beats a vintage look when it comes to creating a lasting impression. Add a timeless charm to your home’s exterior walls by installing black-colored vintage metal wall lamps. Black wall lamps stand out in a bright backdrop.

Paint the walls with our orange shade Sun Blazer (2D2034) to draw more attention to the wall lamps. A bit of greenery works just fine for completing the look.

6) Tea party-ready balcony

What better place to host tea parties for your favourite people than in your balcony? Make your balcony ready for conversational tea parties by creating a light and relaxing background. Our off white shade Crystal Blade (8P2767) helps you create a neutral backdrop. Use a couple of wall hangings to accessorise the walls in a stylish way. Also, do not forget to use potted plants to create a refreshing ambience in the space.
