You got it. You now have the right room for you. You chose to have your walls painted rather than wallpapers. You are now about to choose for the paint that will make your walls look brighter and more appealing to the eyes. You just have to put in mind that you must choose the paint that gives a smooth finish to the wall. Meaning, you have to be very careful in choosing because there are some kinds of paint that only deceive your eyes. You might probably say you can’t see all the imperfections of the wall but it is just the paint’s reflection of the light that does the cover up. So, you have to choose wisely the paint you will be using.
For you to know more about which paint to use for a smooth finish, here are some tips. You probably know about the oil-based and the latex, since they are among the paints that are available in almost all stores. The oil-based, though it is thin, is very durable and always go along smoothly on all surfaces. The problem with this is that it is very hard to clean up. You might spend too much time cleaning it up and it is usually expensive.
On the other hand, the latex paint appears to be thicker, and with just one coat, you can already see a smooth finish. It does not smell bad, and what’s best about this is that you only need a shorter time to clean it up. If you have also heard of primer, then you would know that it is much better than paint. It fills any rough spot on the wall, leaving the walls with a smoother finish.
But, hey, the best paint to use to give your walls an assurance of the smoothest finish is none other than emulsions. It may probably cost higher than the above mentioned paints but it is certainly the best and most effective. It disperses evenly the paint’s molecules. However, if you really have no budget for this, you can try the semi-gloss latex paint. You can also have the smoothest finished if you ensure that the semi-gloss latex paint is rolled properly on the surface. It needs meticulous rolling to have a smoother finish. You can check for the specifications of every paint available in the store. You just have to be careful with choosing.
All your home decorations will look good if they complement well with your walls. The wall paint is also a key to the ambience of the whole room, whether it will look brighter and loud or darker and calm. Everything is in your hands so better be careful, enjoy and prepare everything for the wall painting.
