Previous steps when painting your house with style

Before starting to paint a room, it is important to take into account several aspects. According to José María Villalba, specialist in decoration at BAUHAUS Spain, what we must do first is make sure of the state of this surface (we could find ourselves with walls that have already been painted, Pladur partitions without previous layers, walls with humidity, walls with irregularities, holes, etc.).

On the other hand, the floor must be protected with plastic or cardboard, as well as the socket keys, covers, doors… and in general any surface other than the one that is going to be painted with bodybuilder’s tape. It should not be forgotten that before painting we must make sure that the surface is clean of dust or dirt. For this, it is advisable to use a clean cloth and apply it to both the wall and the ceiling (covering a broom, for example).

Choose the color and look at the windows

The next step is to choose the color . If you want colors that evoke harmony and tranquility, it is best to opt for soft tones. If, on the other hand, you want to change the concept radically, why not paint a wall in Masai Fuchsia? Now it is fashionable to go beyond convention, so we can even dare to paint one wall in Atlantic Blue and the rest in Pearl Grey.

Another element to consider is the windows . It is important to have as much ventilation as possible in the room to be painted. Plastic paint is non-toxic, but it is not recommended to apply it in a completely closed room
