It’s challenging to paint up your room and baseboards if you are having carpet spread over the place. There are many chances that the paint will fall on the mat and paint is not that easy to clean up from the surface of the carpet. It’s very tricky to paint the baseboards without getting the paint on the carpets.
Baseboards are often subjected to most dirt and dust, so the paint should be easy to clean. You can use semi-gloss paint for the baseboards. Semigloss paints offer a bit of sheen and also easy to clean.
There are different approaches to choose colors after installing your baseboards. The color of the baseboard trim must compliment the wall color. Use light or dark shades to that of the wall color. It is also advisable to choose the same color as that of the wall.
Dust always accumulates at the bottom of the walls. It’s essential to clean the surfaces well before starting the painting process. Use trisodium phosphate(TSP) to remove all dirt and grease from the walls. TSP is a non-toxic powder that can be used in your households for cleaning. Mixing the powder with water forms an effective cleaning solution.
Before starting the paintwork, be sure that there are no gaps on the baseboards formed by the nails. Fill up the big holes and dings with spackle and allow it to dry. Now using the sandpaper clean up the areas, you have repaired.
