Are you ready to revitalize your home with a fresh coat of paint? One of the most important steps during the preparation phase is protecting your furniture from splatters and drips.
This video features tips that can help make sure your home painting project goes perfectly. Move all your furniture away from the walls and into the center of the room before painting. Drape canvas or plastic tarps over your furniture, making sure all areas, including the feet, are covered to prevent any painting accidents.

In addition to the variety of paint color options to consider for your home or office project, paints are also available in a number of finishes that can impact the final look of your space. Understanding the effect each finish will have can help you make the right choice for your needs. Your selection of finish will play a role both in the aesthetic quality of the paint job as well as its durability and longevity.
Types of Paint Finishes
Most paint lines offer four to six different finish options, which range from flat, or no-gloss finishes, to extremely glossy finishes. Flat or matte finish paints don’t reflect incident light and contain high amounts of pigment, but are the least durable paint finish options. The next step up from flat finishes are eggshell finishes, which contain a low luster that reflects a small amount of light and a medium level of durability. More highly-reflective finishes, such as satin, semi-gloss, and glossy paints, reflect increasingly more light and offer significant durability and longevity to painted surfaces.
Applications of Paint Finishes
Matte and low-gloss finishes are ideal for walls with small imperfections. Because these finishes reflect very little light, they will disguise small bumps and cracks. However, matte paints are less durable and will need occasional touchups to maintain their look. Higher-sheen finishes can open up a room that is dark or small, and are great for bathrooms and kitchens because of their increased durability and ease of maintenance. Extremely high-gloss paints often look like enamel or plastic, creating a very dramatic and eye-catching look. If you plan to use paint with a high-gloss finish, make sure your walls are well-sanded to avoid drawing the eye to any imperfections in the surface.
