Painting 101: Helpful Tips for Painting Your House to Sell or Improving the Look of Your Home

Spring is one of the most common times for people to put their home on the market. Even if you’re not moving, this is also the time of year where people want to make improvements to their home. A positive to this is painting; it doesn’t break your back or the bank. Adding a new, fresh coat of paint to your home is a quick and inexpensive way of improving the look of a room.

Here are some useful painting tips:

Prep, prime and primp: Painting a room in your home that is unusual can be a turnoff to potential buyers. It is better to paint your room in a more inviting colour that everyone would enjoy. Therefore, it would be worthwhile to paint your room in a neutral colour such as subtle beige, slight grey or even white.

Paint like a professional: When choosing your painting tools, it’s better to invest a bit of money into your materials. For a professional finish, try Ultra Finish rollers. They provide an even coat of paint and result in a consistent application from top to bottom. These rollers work well with any type of paint. When painting smaller spaces such as bathrooms or closets, mini rollers are the best to use because they are multipurpose and provide the necessary finish.


Sometimes after having completed your painting project in a neutral colour, the room may feel lifeless. Not to worry. There are many ways to add colour without the use of bold colours that may turn potential buyers away. You can add a pop of colour through accent pieces, such as lamps, pillows, rugs, frames etc.


Keeping the aesthetics of your home in neutral colours creates an inviting atmosphere. These suggestions will also help you achieve your end goal of selling your home.
