Spring seems to be finally showing itself, marking the perfect time to start those home renovation projects you’ve been holding off on starting. Spring is perhaps the most popular time for a home update in Winnipeg; the weather is nicer, and it creates a better environment for working. Homeowners often feel the need to make updates in spring, as they watch the grass and flowers grow, wanting to see the same great changes inside their home as well. One way to update the home this spring that is both simple and affordable is with paint. Paint can easily be used to update any area of the home with a little time and effort.
The most popular way to change up the look of the home with a simple weekend reno is with the walls of your home. Paint one room or a few rooms, changing up the look and feel of the space. With paint, you can easily give a room a new look without breaking the bank. During a weekend, start your project by taping off the trim and ceiling, preparing the space to be painted. Make sure to prime the surface with a quality primer before you start painting. Using paint and primer in one product, although it can save some time initially, has its downside. Depending on the surface you’re painting, two-in-one products can peel incredibly easily.
If you don’t want to commit to painting a whole room, you can always paint a piece of furniture to change the look of the space. Paint has come a long way over the years and can easily be used to revitalise old furniture. Take chalk paint for instance. A big trend right now is taking older pieces of furniture and painting it with chalk paint. This paint type dries quickly and can be sanded a bit for a unique look. Most old furniture – hutches, coffee tables, and dressers are especially popular choices -you have can be refreshed with a little time and some paint!
