Are there some much-needed touch-ups you could be doing to keep your home in tip-top shape? Adding a new coat of paint is a quick, affordable and possibly the most impactful way to get your project done.

Prep, prime and primp

Misusing color can be a surefire way to turn people off from your home. For a more inviting look that nearly everyone can enjoy, opt for neutral paint colors. A subtle beige, slight gray or even white can do the trick.

First, move furniture out of the room and place drop cloths to protect the floor. Remove any picture frames, outlet covers and wall decor. Then, gently scrub the walls with a mild detergent and water mixture using a soft sponge to remove any dirt, grime or lint. Don’t forget to prime your walls before applying color to ensure the best end-results.

Paint like a pro

For an ultra-smooth finish, try Purdy’s line of Ultra Finish roller covers. These premium microfiber roller covers, available in 9-inch lengths and varying nap thickness, provide an even release of paint and deliver a consistent application from start to finish.

Keeping your color conviction

Are you feeling deprived of color after your painting project is complete? Just add a pop of color throughout your home with fun accent pieces in your favorite colors.
