7 Easy Tricks to Paint your Home
Before you get a brush, find out what tricks will help you become an expert in painting!
Painting may seem like a hassle, but no one can deny the fact that paint transforms any space in lightning time. To help you become an expert in painting, Gikas Painting in New Jersey present you 7 tricks that will help you turn the process… of painting into an easy task.
1. Clean the walls well, but thoroughly
Apply the surface you want to paint with a dry cleaning cloth. This way, you will be able to remove dust from your walls effectively without any extra effort.
2. Rock n ‘roll
Dip the roll into the special sloping container with gentle movements so that it “gets” enough paint so that it does not drip and is covered evenly.

3. Take the painting test
To choose the right shade with confidence, all you have to do is paint a small area of your wall. Leave it for 2-3 days to see how it looks at different times of the day, always observing it in relation to the furniture and the lighting of your space. Find out here which signs indicate that you have chosen the wrong color.
4. Do not follow the straight line
The straight line may be the shortest way to get to the destination but the same is not true when painting. Start painting by making W-shaped movements and apply the paint to the wall so that most of it is gone. Then, with movements from top to bottom, fill in the inner points of the W. In this way, you will achieve a uniform distribution of color on the wall since in the first “shoots” the roll leaves much more color.
When painting, the straight line will not reach your perfect result any time soon.
5. Take the brush
Using the above technique, brush with a brush the “difficult” points of the wall, i.e those that need more attention to … detail! What are these; The places that are close to the skirting boards or the places where you have put tape. Fine, you painted it. See here how to decorate your big wall.
6. Do not forget your lip balm
In addition to moisturizing your lips, lip balm (and Vaseline) helps you become a master of painting. Use this to move the handles, hinges and window frame, knobs as well as sockets and switches on the surface on which you intend to change color. This way, you will be able to clean them very easily in case they get dirty with paint.
7. Paint them dark
And yet transparent or white primer is not always the only way. A big exception is the case where you want to paint your walls in a darker shade than the one you already have. So, to reach the final result… with fewer coats of paint, prefer a dark primer.
