Some people seem to be naturally gifted when it comes to handling home improvement projects with results that look nearly professional. Others are not as gifted in this respect and prefer to hire a professional to do the work, with the expectation that the results will be exactly what they wanted. One home improvement task that nearly everyone can do with relatively good results is painting a room or two in their home. Of course, exterior painting is another beast entirely, so we recommend hiring a professional for that. However, with some research and planning, you could do some indoor painting with good results.
For example, you’ll want to determine what is the best type of paint for you – latex-based, or oil-based? Will you go for cloth dropcloths or cheaper plastic? Will you choose discount paint, or premium paint that applies easier and lasts much longer? These are relatively simple decisions, and making good ones can help you make your painting project a success.
