Mudroom Painting Mistakes To Avoid In St. Helens, OR

Though people don't typically think of a mudroom as the place where a good paint job is going to be critical to making the whole room look better, it really can be.

While a mudroom can be quite good when it is painted, there are some things that you can do along the line of mistakes and the like that will hurt your painting project.

Let's have a look at some mudroom painting mistakes that you're going to want to avoid making when you're painting a good mudroom.

1. Using The Wrong Kind Of Paint

One thing that a lot of people will do when they are looking to paint a mudroom is they figure that it's just a mudroom and what does it matter what kind of paint they use to paint it, right?

So they go to the store and find the first flat paint that happens to be on sale and paint the mudroom, and will you guess what happens the first time the mudroom is used extensively and the walls of the room get dirty?

They go to clean the dirt off of the walls and end up removing some of the paint that they so carefully applied to the walls -- flat paint is not really so happy with being cleaned, you see.

So what you want to do is to make use of a glossy paint when painting the mudroom walls so that you're going to be able to more easily clean the walls -- you will be able to wipe off the walls with a damp cloth when you use a glossy paint.

2. Not Removing Any Furniture

As you are going around the room and trying to get it painted, you will no doubt notice that there may be quite a lot of furniture in the room -- particularly if you haven't made the time to remove it.

There are a number of reasons why you should do your best to remove the furniture as you are painting just about any interior room, but a mudroom in particular is in want of having some of the furniture taken out of it.

As a smaller room in your home, you're already going to be having a bit of an issue moving around the space that you have for painting, and when you add the furniture that is often found there you compound the issue.

Do yourself a favor and make sure that you remove to the best of your ability furniture from the room or at the very least get it away from the walls so that you will be able to have better access to them.

3. Painting Too Quickly

If you've ever seen a bit of what one might call a messy paint job, you may wonder how it's possible that someone could have just taken the art of applying paint and primer to the walls and let things go so badly.

The thing that can easily cause a painting project to go just this way is to paint too quickly, to try to apply paint to the surfaces being painted in a manner that is much too fast for the space that exists for painting.

By painting too quickly, you run the risk of allowing paint to spill as you are painting -- and if you haven't provided any kind of protection on the floor this is just the sort of thing that is going to have to be cleaned up after the fact.

Moreover, if you are painting too quickly you are more likely to mistakenly apply too little or too much paint in areas where a certain amount of paint is going to be necessary -- and then you basically have to go back to those areas and correct them.
