Game Room Painting Mistakes To Avoid In Scappoose, OR

You might want to think about your game room and how it looks - even if all you do is to go to the room when you want to play in it -- for as much fun as it is to play in a plain room, think how much more pleasant it might be to play in one that is well painted?

However, it's worth noting that if you make certain errors along the way you will find that the painting project will be a lot more difficult to complete properly.

If you know about at least some of these mistakes you can make the effort to try to avoid them, which will make for a better painting project overall.

Let's take a look at some game room painting mistakes to avoid a nicer looking game room.

1. Using Hard To Clean Paint

One mistake that people make when they are painting their game room is in making use of flat paint, which is hard to clean.

Of course, this may not be applicable to you -- if you happen to stay quite clean as it were and away from your walls and thus you never find the need to clean the walls, this won't be necessary.

To paint your room in a way that will have it easier to clean, make sure that you make use of glossy paint -- this is as easy to clean as wiping it clean with a moist cloth.

2. Not Planning Out Your Painting Project

One of the worst things that you can do in terms of painting projects is to not make proper plans for the project.

The issue comes from when people jump into a painting project and don't even make the time to measure the walls being painted, which makes it significantly easier to figure out how much paint and primer you are going to need as well as how long it will take to paint.

Since it's your game room that's being painted, you're going to want to put in some time in planning out the color or colors that will be applied to the wall, which will typically be more involved than painting other rooms in your home.

3. Not Protecting Your Floors

You might think that if you are particularly careful when you are painting your game room walls, this necessarily means that you aren't going to have to lay down any kind of protection on your floors -- this is not the case.

Indeed, the painting process will most always involve paint dripping -- whether that dripping comes from the paintbrush directly or from the paint tray you are using to transport the paint.

By putting down a heavy drop cloth you will help to protect the floor -- much easier to do this than to try to clean dried paint off of your floor.

Heavy drop cloth is a bit better than a tarp, which will often easily come off of the floor and so make the covering not so useful.

4. Rushing Through The Painting Process

Lastly, you should remember that if you are painting your game room, it's important that you don't rush through the process.

This is problematic because if you are trying to paint too quickly, for example, you are going to be more likely to apply paint too thick in some places and not thick enough in other places.

Trying to save time by painting more quickly will usually lead to your painting project taking longer... or not, if you don't make the time to fix the mistakes, of course!
