Decoration - Inside & Out
The project will now have reached the stage that anyone moving into any new house will find themselves at – painting and decorating. The tough work has been done it is the final stretch and debates about paint colours, feature walls, and carpet pile can take place.
1 Preparation may be a chore, but if all surfaces are sanded, filled and prepared for decorating now, it will save a lot of time and effort later.
2 Dust will continue to settle however many precautions you took to prevent it, but as long as everywhere is as dust free and clean as possible, now is the time to get the paint brushes out. Start with the woodwork and finish with the walls.
3 Kitchen wall tiling can be undertaken at this stage.
4 It is just about now that you will truly believe that the best smell in the world is newly laid carpets.
5 There are only a few things to regard when considering the outside areas of the house. Recycle or regenerate whatever is available to you. The difference a lawnmower alone can make is often surprising.
6 You should endeavour to provide off-street parking if at all possible, and don’t forget, the first thing a potential buyer for your property sees is the front, so kerb appeal is a must.
