The warmer the weather, the closer renovations come. If you have to tackle a DIY painting project but can’t choose the right tools, our professional painters have a few suggestions for you. They’ve picked the best options to make home refreshing a piece of cake.
1. Protective Sheets
These are a must-have, unless you’d like to clean up paint splatter from the floor. They come in two types – plastic and textile sheets. If you’re going to use them only once, you can buy plastic sheets and dispose of them after you’re done. If you wish to use them for a few property refresh jobs, you can buy textile sheets.
2. Masking Tape Dispenser For Precise Edge Painting
You will definitely need one of these, especially if you have to paint edges precisely. The masking tape is made of paper-like material and you’ll be able to get the tape off easily. If you use a protective tape dispenser, you’ll cut the efforts and time in half. The rollers it has provide better adhesion to the edges.
3. Aluminum Bench For Higher Spots
Not all spots you need to cover in paint are tall enough to use a high ladder. If this is the case, the ideal tool to use is an aluminum bench. It gives you freedom to move in each side without having to reposition it like you would do with a ladder. It’s made of aluminum which makes it both durable and lightweight. Thanks to their folding design they won’t take up a lot of space. Many of the bench models have non-marring legs, so they don’t damage the floor. This makes it a perfect tools for your DIY painting project.
4. Paint Roller Pole
If you need to paint high spots and are not a fan of ladders or benches, use a paint roller pole. You can attach it directly to the roller’s handle. Thanks to the hexagonal shape of the handle, the roller will be stable and won’t spin around the pole.
5. Handy Paint Container
This product has a comfortable rubber handle and is easy to hold. Even better, it has a magnetic brush holder and you can suspend the brush in the paint. This way the bristles won’t dry out. Add a disposable liner and you’ll avoid the messy edges.
6. Get Rid Of Excess Paint With A Brush Comb
This tool is perfect for keeping your paint brushes in tip-top shape. You can use it to squeeze excess paint from the brushes. Many of the paint combs have a semicircular cutout used for cleaning paint rollers.
7. Use Easy-To-Clean Paint Brush
Chinex paint brushes have become very popular with professional painter these days. Their bristles are easy to clean, so you won’t have any problems with quick-dry paint.
8. Edge Painting
Painting the edges of walls in a room is not easy even for professionals. It is quite frustrating, especially if you don’t have enough experience or the right tool for the purpose. To avoid paint smudges on the floor and ceiling, you can use an edge panting tool. With a little practice you’ll be able to freshen up your property’s walls like a pro in no time.
