You have a nice, carpeted floor in your room. And, you want to spice up the room with a brand new paint job. However, you are paranoid about getting paint on your newly laid carpet. It can be tricky to paint baseboards (or Paint Doors and Trim) next to carpet and not get paint on it, in particular the baseboard trim.
Here’s how to paint baseboards and protect the carpet, by a Professional Toronto Painter:
As with any House Interior Painting job, you want to use a drop-sheet to protect the main areas of the carpet, before painting baseboards around the carpet:
Once you have laid down your dropsheets, now you are ready to start using the stir stick/edger underneath the carpet.
All right! The carpet has been dropsheeted, your painters tape is underneath the baseboard bottom protecting your carpet, and your baseboard is now ready to be painted!
And you’re done! You’ve successfully painted your baseboards over the carpet and your room is looking better than ever.
What Color to Paint Baseboards? Assuming you are using a latex paint, once you have finished painting the baseboard, it is very important you wait about 15-20 min and for the paint to dry a bit before removing it. If you don’t, if the carpet is really tight against the baseboard it can potentially push back up against the baseboard getting paint on it.
As always, if you would like to take a load off, you can call Home Painters Toronto to do the job for you!
