How To Paint A House, Part 3: Interior & Exterior House Painting Quick Tips

House Painting Tips for Wylie, Plano, McKinney, Collin County Texas

Now that you’ve followed through with hiring the right house painting company and ensured that all surface preparation tasks have been done, now we’ll walk you through some of the finer details with interior & exterior house painting in Texas.

Interior House Painting Tips

When choosing color for your interior house paint, it’s always a good idea to go to a local paint store near you to get samples. With the sample paint, apply several large swaths on the walls in different areas in your home. Be sure to let the swaths fully dry and see how the colors look in your home’s natural lighting. Repeat these steps for each room that you’ll be painting & choose the color that you feel looks best in each room. If you’re painting the entire interior try to select colors that go well (or compliment) each other.

If you’re having a hard time choosing the right color, invite family & friends over to offer their input. You may even choose to hire a color consultant to ensure the colors you pick will work well together.

Planning on selling your home after painting? Stick with neutral colors so the new homeowners can see how your home looks, free of bold colors which may hamper their opinion if the colors don’t jive with their particular tastes.

How Much Does Interior House Painting Cost?

The cost of the job depends on several things including the amount of painting that needs to be done, how much prep work needs to be done before painting, such as sheetrock repair and do the walls need to be re-textured. Are you looking to get just the walls painted, or do you want the baseboards and trim done as well? Doors painted? Do you have high ceilings and does scaffolding needs to be used?

Your local interior house painting company you’ve chosen should help evaluate these items with you and provide you with a detailed quote.

Exterior House Painting Tips

Just like with interior house painting, collect paint samples from your local paint supplier to test or if you like the color of your exterior, your painting company can collect samples and color match for you.

With the exterior surface properly prepared & the color(s) chosen, your paint company can take of the rest of the process.

How Much Does Exterior House Painting Cost?

The cost of the job for exterior house painting depends on certain things as well. Is there bad or rotten wood that needs to be replaced? How much of the surface of the home needs to be painted, such as, trim, siding & doors, etc.? The painting company that you choose will, again, help you evaluate the best, most affordable options you need.

Whether you live in Wylie, Murphy, McKinney, Plano or any other part of Collin County, with Texas Painting & Gutters you can be sure to get the best interior & exterior tips, detailed quotes and professional work that will make your home shine.
