How To Get Your Kitchen Ready For Professional Painters In St. Louis, MO
When you want a nicer looking kitchen, one thing that you might want to consider is paintwork — painting the walls of the kitchen, for example, or painting the cabinets.
You will find that some of the best paintworks is done by professional painting contractors (Selah Painting, for example… we hear good things about them!) and if you want to help your painting contractors, you will make for a better painted kitchen whether it’s the walls being painted, the cabinets, or another part of the kitchen.
Let’s look at some tips on how to get your kitchen ready for professional painters.
1. Have A Color Or Colors In Mind
One thing you’re going to want to do before the painting contractors get to your house for the first time is to have a color or two in mind that you are going to want to use for the painting project.
Of course, there’s a perfectly good chance that when you meet with your painting contractors your conversations will lead you to pick an entirely different color choice — but that’s okay, as they have years of experience working with home interiors and may have some colors in mind that might not have even occurred to you.
Having a color or two in mind beforehand is a good way to get a good start on your painting project and give you an idea of how you’re going to want it to look.
Remember that you can make use of more than one color in most cases – you should bear in mind that not only should the colors go well with one another but they should also still look nice with the colors you have present in the room.
For that reason, it is often best to consult with the painting contractors that you have coming to paint your kitchen.
2. Thoroughly Clean
Depending on what kind of painting is to be done, some level of cleaning is going to be necessary.
If your cabinets are going to be getting painted, for example, you will need to remove everything inside but also clean the surfaces that are going to be painted.
Cleaning surfaces is also going to be quite helpful for other areas in your kitchen that can be painted and since it’s the kitchen, you may well have to make use of a good cleaning agent that will remove grease given the amount of cooking that happens in the kitchen.
3. Remove Wall Decorations
Whether or not your walls are going to be getting painted, it’s likely a good idea to remove anything hung up on the wall.
If your walls are going to be painted, it’s a good idea of course to have nothing on them so that the painters coming to paint the walls won’t have to make the time to remove them.
If it’s going to be your cabinets painted, on the other hand — you will find that it is much better to have the things off of the war just so that the room is a bit less full — the fewer things there are in a room being painted, the better.
As you may know, there are a few things that are worse for a painting project like finding dust mixed up in the paint that has been applied to the walls or cabinets.
To make things better for your painting contractors, you’re going to want to properly vacuum the room, particularly in the areas near where the painting contractors are going to be painting.
Make the time to vacuum your kitchen well before the beginning of the painting project to make it a more successful one.
