Dining Room Accent Wall Painting On A Budget In St. Helens, OR

When you're thinking that your dining room is in need of improvement, painting is often one of the better things that you can go to as far as improving the looks of the room -- yet this can be quite costly.

Even if you look at only painting your accent wall, there are quite a few costs that are associated with a good painting project, and it bears remembering that this is something over which you have control.

That is to say -- you can have an influence over the cost of your dining room accent wall painting budget by taking advantage of some basic tips and understanding of how to paint a home interior for less money.

With that being the case, let's have a look at some tips for dining room accent wall painting on a budget that will keep your dining room accent wall looking good.

1. Measuring Your Accent Wall

One thing that is going to certainly help you bring down the overall cost of your dining room accent wall painting project is the time you spend measuring the accent wall and what you do with that information.

It's important to know how much paint and primer (more on this next) to use for painting your accent wall and if you don't know how much accent wall there is to be painted, this step will be quite difficult.

Not knowing this information ultimately leads to you not buying enough paint and primer or perhaps worse -- buying too much and not knowing what to do with the excess paint and primer that cost you good money after the project is complete.

By making the time to take these measurements you will not only ensure that you have the right amount of paint and primer but you will be able to plan out your painting project well and not waste any time just waiting for surfaces to dry and doing nothing else.

2. Using Primer

The price of a painting project is more than just what you are going to be paying to get the surfaces painted up front -- you have to consider how long it will last after you paint it.

Anything that you can do that is going to lengthen the life of your painting project may well be worth doing, especially if you can compare how much more you are going to be spending versus how much extra life you are getting for your painted surface.

Applying primer gets you a more smooth surface upon which you are going to be able to apply your paint -- and then having that primer is going to help the paint stay on that surface longer, which makes for a longer life for your painting project.

3. Cleaning Before Painting

If you try to apply paint or even primer to a dirty surface, it's going to not only make for a messy painting project, it's likely one that is going to get you to spend more money in the long run.

This is to do with the fact that you are going to finish your painting project and you will have one look at what you have painted and realized that you have something that looks like a dirty surface with primer and paint over it.

The better thing for you to do is to make the time to fully clean the surface or surfaces that are going to be cleaned and make sure that you have removed all dirt and grime that is on them before you start the next step in the painting process
