Guest Bedroom Painting On A Budget In St. Louis, MO
In getting ready to paint any room in your home, one issue that you will face is how much the project is going to cost — and sometimes these costs can be quite great.
However, the good thing that you should know is that there are things that you can do to bring down the price of your guest bedroom painting project — and while you don’t have to follow all of the tips we will present, taking some into consideration will help bring down the price of your painting project.
Let’s have a look at some tips for guest bedroom painting on a budget while keeping the look of your guest bedroom quite good.
1. Measuring The Spaces To Be Painted
One of the most simple ways that you can lower the price of your painting project comes in the form of spending less money on paint and primer.
The reason that measuring spaces before you paint them will bring down the price like this ties together with the fact that you have to buy paint and primer, and if you buy too much of either it will be quite a waste of money.
Buying too little of them, on the other hand, will also be a waste of money but in a different way in that you’re going to have to go back to the paint store to get more and there’s no telling if you will find it — leading you to need to spend more time and money to get the right amount.
Measuring these spaces will help you to calculate the amount of paint and primer you will need for the painting project.
2. Only Use One Color
Though it might not seem like it would make that big of a difference in the cost of your painting project, when you start adding more colors the cost really does go up a bit.
There are all sorts of reasons that a person might want to use more than one color when they’re painting a guest room, such as making one of the walls into an accent wall, but you should be well aware that the presence of the second color will make the project more expensive than if it is not there.
Instead, by sticking to one color for painting you will have less of an expensive painting project — and the room will have more of a uniform look, which some people staying in the room may appreciate.
3. Use Better Quality Paint
In painting the guest bedroom in your home, you may be tempted by a paint that is going to be lower in price so that your upfront price is lower — but you will find that over a longer period of time, this will cause your painting project to cost you more.
For example, if you use certain paints that are lower in the price you may find that these same paints are not going to last you nearly as long as a paint that is of a better quality.
If, on the other hand, you make use of better quality paint you will see that it will not only look better for a longer period of time but will stay on the surface just as well — and this means that your overall cost over time is going to be lesser.
4. Borrow Equipment If Possible
Lastly, you should know that if you are able to borrow the equipment for your painting project, it would certainly serve you better than if you were to spend the money on getting the equipment yourself.
Of course, if you have a number of painting projects in your future it is sensible to get your own painting equipment, but if this is going to be your last project for a while it would likely be better to borrow the equipment and return it in just as good condition as you got it.
