If you are gearing up to launch a paint project in your home, we are sure that you will want to get it right the first time. To help you with your paint project, we have compiled a list of all the accessories that you will need for a flawless interior paint job. Let’s take a look!
1. Painter’s Tape
You will find that painter’s tape is a lifesaver. One of the most important things you can do when performing a paint job in your home is to adequately prep your home. In fact, when you pay attention to prepping your house, you will be much happier with the results. Painter’s tape helps keep your trim, ceiling, and other finishes paint-free during the process. Just imagine how tough it can be to remove paint from delicate surfaces and with painter’s tape, you do not have to worry about that.
2. Starter Kit
If this is your first DIY paint project, you should start strong by investing in a beginner’s painting kit. Such a kit will include essential tools like paint brushes, rollers, tray, tray liner, and gloves. Purchasing a kit is much easier than trying to buy all the items individually, especially if you do not really know all the things you will need for a successful painting project.
3. Paint Edger
It can be hard getting to the edges and corners of the room. That is why you may need a paint edger. You will find that a paint edger comes in handy when getting to the trickiest parts of a room.
4. Drop Cloth
Of course, a drop cloth is essential, especially if you are painting a room with furniture in it. A drop cloth will protect your furnishing and floors from accidental drips. Also, a drop cloth makes the cleanup process much more manageable. Plastic drop cloths are the most inexpensive option but canvas cloths are more efficient, and they are not slippery.
5. Paint Brush Cover
Will your paint project take more than one day? If so, paintbrush covers are definitely a necessity. Instead of wasting time washing the paint off your brushes, you can store them for use the next day in a paint brush cover.
6. Paint Tray
Perhaps the most annoying thing about paint trays is that you have to repeatedly keep filling them. When shopping for a paint tray, purchase one that can hold up to a gallon of paint. This will help make the painting process go much faster.
