A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for any room in your home, or office. Even an older, outdated room will look updated and clean, once it receives a coat of paint. It's one of the easiest, and least costly options for renovating a home or office. If you're on a tight budget, it's something to consider. Even though painting is inexpensive, but you may still be looking to cut the cost even further, the following information will help you do that. Whether you're using a residential painter, or a commercial painter, these three tips will help you.
Supply Your Own Paint
Getting your own paint for the job can save you some money. First, it's one less thing for your painter to do. Secondly, you can save money at your local paint or Home Improvement store.
Be sure to check out the sales that local stores are having.
Look at the 'mistake' table. You may be able to find a color that you love. These are colors that were not mixed to the customer's satisfaction. There is nothing wrong with the paint.
Clear the Room Out
Moving the furniture and other belongings out of a room before painting, is a tedious task, and one that you're probably not looking forward to. You may be tempted to leave the furniture in the room and ask your painter to simply work around it. However, this could be a more expensive decision than you realize. You'll be making the job more difficult for the painter, and that could increase the cost. Do your bank account a favor and remove the furniture.
Paint the Ceiling Yourself
If your ceiling needs painting, do it yourself. The ceiling doesn't require as much finesse as walls and trim. It's easy and straightforward to paint. This leaves your painting with one less step to do, and therefore, you'll be charged less.
These three tips for saving money while having a room professionally painted, can drastically reduce the cost of the job. Picking up your own paint, moving your furniture and painting your own ceiling is well worth the money that you'll save. In the end, you'll be left with a beautifully painted room, some money still left in the bank and the best part is, you get to sit back and relax while the room is being painted.
