You know what you want from your interior house painting project; you want a room straight out of the magazines. Your home painting must be elegant, functional and beautiful. This interior home painting dream does not include splotchy trim, wavy lines or painted-over electrical outlets, does it?
If you’re serious about painting your home to look out of the pages of Canadian House and Home Magazine, follow these tips for cutting in (secrets of the trade from Toronto Painters).
Simply put, it’s the professional painting contractor’s way of saying “painting along the corners and trim carefully with a small brush.” This is one of the most important parts of painting a room (though it can be supplemented with taping) to give you those professional house painter lines. In fact, you can usually see the difference between an amateur and professional paint job simply by noticing the “cut lines” and how straight they are.
Cutting in protects corners and trim from sloppy house painting that may occur from using large paintbrushes or rollers that do not fit will in small spaces.
The process, while slightly time consuming, is fairly simple and consists of a few easy tasks.
Don’t forget to cut in around door knobs and windows to make sure that your home painting project looks professional from all sides! When painting a door, cut around the handle before you use a roller to finish up the rest of the it. Be sure that you do the painting of the door the same day because if the “cut in”portion is completely dried before painting the remainder of the door, the colours may not match, even if you use the same paint.
Once you are finished cutting in like a professional painting contractor, its time to learn how to paint a wall.
For bigger projects, or if you have a special concept in mind it is best to hire professional Toronto painters to quickly and efficiently paint your house exactly how you want it to look the first time.
