Interior Painting Tips
Easy Color Reference:
For future color reference, paint the back of your light switch plates or use a marker to record your room's color names and numbers.
Painting windows or doors? Both need to be open while you work, to allow full access to the surface. You should tackle them first thing in the morning - so they will be dry enough to close at night without sticking or pulling off the new paint.
Nicks And Dings:
No matter how often you paint, high-traffic areas, such as kitchens and stairways, are bound to suffer scratches, smudges, and chips.
To facilitate fast touch-ups, keep a small amount of each shade of paint in a lightweight, airtight container, such as a margarine tub. Make sure the containers are carefully labeled. When you notice a scratch, you can do a quick fix without hauling around heavy cans.
Recommend caulking the corners, edges, ceilings the day before.
