Woodwork painting

 

Painting woodwork

 

Painting skirting boards, windows and door frames in not particularly popular DIY task. Here we will give you a few tips on how to do it yourself.To pain a skirting board you will need dust sheet, sandpaper, masking tape, appropriate brush and paint .As the skirting boards are located across the base of the wall you will have to carry the work dawn on your knees. Also have to be very careful and protect the carpet and wallpapering-work slowly. First you will have to remove all the furniture that is near the skirting and make enough space for work, then protect the floor by covering it with dust sheet. You will also need a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust-you do not want to paint over dirty surface. The paint that is used to paint woodwork is oilbased paint. Start painting at the top of the skirting board. Collect a small amount of paint.Move the brush from right to left, and once you have covered a small section of the skirting from the top,  start working from the bottom,then fill in the middle.To pain the door frames and windows you will use the same oilbased paint. Painting a door can be tricky depending on the kind of it. Is it flat panel or raised-panel, does it have any gaps or ornaments. One approach is to paint all the panels first. But this Works only if you cut in carefully. If you get paint on a stile while painting the first couple of panels,the paint may set Up before you’re ready to paint the rest of the stile.For most painters, the best way is to paint the top pair of panels and the stiles, muntins, and rails around them. Then move to the next lower pair of panels.For painting window frames use blue painter’s tape to tape the edges of the wall where they meet the edges of the trim.Stir the paint thoroughly with a stir stick. Always stir the paint before you use it or you will get uneven color.When applying the paint first remove the extra paint from the brush by wiping the bristles against the side of the can. You do not want to overload the brush.Avoid touching any woodwork that has been freshly painted-this will ruin the finished look and all your hard efforts.

Painting and Maintenance

 

Hanover Square

When you decide to refresh or change the colors in your home or work place there a few things you have to take in consideration.

First you have to choose the right paint. Nowadays there are hundreds of shades and colors to suit every taste. Here we are using Dulux Concrete Grey(always be sure to get high quality paint  as this will affect the final result and in the long run investing in more expensive materials proves to be the best option).

How often to paint the interior of your house or office? It really depends on how much wear and tear there is. Most of the time public spaces and buildings need to be repainted more often. They get busy and often cracks and dents, scuffs and marks appear on the walls. If the paint that has been used is high quality washable paint these walls can be washed occasionally. This way using qualitative materials will save money on repainting. Other places that require high maintenance are the kitchens, toilets and laundry rooms. Most durable paint should be used in these areas of your house. For the best choice of materials you could always ask your local tradesmen or contact a professional painting company that will give you accurate advice and help you to make the right decisions.

Very often doors, skirting board, ceiling and windows are painted separately as they would require different type of paint and painting technique. We will show you some wood painting in our next post.

 

 

Greycoat Place project

 

 One of our recent projects is pictured above. A client’s office near Westminster Station,10 Greycoat Place in London needed some refreshment .The colors used -Dulux night jewels 4 and Dulux pure brilliant white are very popular in office environment. Painting a wall multiple colors may sound difficult to some people but a professional painter would know how to apply a painters tape to the wall and achieve the desired effect. Using the right materials is always very important as well-we only work with the best brands and aim for top quality finish.
