Is Painting The Last Step During A Home Renovation?

Are you planning on a new Painting project? Great! If painted rightly, it can refresh, revitalise and renew any room in your home. You may have some questions about if paint should be applied first or last during your Home Renovation project if you are doing a home makeover or home improvement that involves more than just Painting.

It is believed by many that a Painting project should always come first, before other Home Improvement jobs. People apply paint before diving into other projects, especially if you are getting new carpeting. Even though Professional Painters take steps to protect your carpet, but if you are considering to replace the carpet anyway, you can as well do the painting with the carpet you are planning to get rid of.

But the “paint-first” rule is not always necessary. Professional Painters are trained well to keep your household items protected when Painting, so you are not bound to do the painting before making any other big changes to the room. There are some cases in fact when paint should be applied after other home projects.

Here are some tips on applying paint from GT Painters (the residential and commercial painting experts in SYDNEY), if you are wondering when should paint be applied during your home improvement process:

After Refinishing or Installing New Floors

Messy projects like refinishing floors can raise dust, which may stick to new Paint. In addition, during the refinishing process baseboards and wall paint can be damaged. So it is mandatory to paint after installing a new tile floor, to increase the life of your Paint.

After Remodelling

The process that involves ripping out or installing new appliances or furnishings like kitchen or bathroom remodelling, can easily damage your paint job. Do the repairing or remodeling first, so any Paint chipping or damage that occurs can be painted over with the new Paint job.

After Redecorating a Room

Figure out what you want the room to look like first because you would not want to go through a whole Paint job and then find your plans for the room don’t match the new colour. Compare shades to find just the right colour match. The painters have no problem covering or moving and replacing new furnishings to protect them during the Painting Process.
