Considerations When Painting and Decorating Your Home
Painting and decorating your home can be an inexpensive way of breathing new life in to your living space. When done correctly it can positively transform the look and feel of a room and make a statement. It is possibly one of the most cost effective and easiest ways to improve the look of your home. Below are a few considerations to make when you are thinking of adding a splash of colour to your home.
Choosing a Paint Colour – Take in to account the size and shape of the room you will be decorating. Also observe the amount of light the room gets. If you are hiring a professional painter and decorator to complete the job ask their opinion. Certain colours are more relaxing and calming, try and incorporate these in to your bedrooms, bathrooms and any other relaxation spaces.
Test the Paint Colour – It is difficult to determine how a paint colour will look on a wall with lighting. Therefore, we advise not to rush in to picking a colour. Buy sample and tester pots of the colour you are considering, allow it to dry and observe how it looks different times of day. Only once you have done this should you commit to as colour scheme.
Consider the Paint Finish – The particular paint finish has a large bearing on how the colour will look on your walls. Not only can the finish hide imperfections it can also accentuate them so choose carefully. Popular finishes include matt, eggshell, silk/satin and gloss. If you are unsure ask your local painter and decorator for advice.
- Matt – Matt finish provides a non reflective and velvety finish. This finish is popular for surfaces with a number of blemishes. The drawback is this workspace finish can stain easily
- Eggshell – Eggshell paint provides a faint glow. The finish is similar to that of an eggshell. The eggshell finish is durable and does not pick up dirt and grime readily.
- Silk/Satin – Silk/satin paints are categorised as medium sheen finishes. The paint reflects a slight amount of light providing a glow. This paint is easy to wipe down. This makes it the "go-to" finish for walls and ceilings in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Gloss – This type of finish is commonly used when painting wood and metal surfaces. The paint reflects a large amounts of light giving a shiny and glowing finish. Gloss looks best when used on perfectly prepared surfaces. Gloss is hardwearing and stain resistant.
Deciding How Much Paint You Need – Running out of or buying too much paint can be frustrating. Try and calculate the square footage of the workspace before purchasing your paint. Secondly consider how many coats the workspace will need. If you are priming the walls first one coat may be sufficient. More coats could be required if the walls are not primed.
To achieve a first-class, long lasting and durable finish we always advise to use a professional painter and decorator. For those customers in Rotherham, Sheffield and the surrounding region why not contact Painters and Decorators Rotherham today on 01709 803953.
Benefits of Using a Professional Painter and Decorator
Professional painters and decorators predominately use trade paint. Trade paint is a superior quality to the retail paint found in most popular DIY stores. Due to the lower quality of retail paint, three or even four coats may be required to cover an existing colour. Trade paint, being better quality, requires fewer coats and provides a much more professional finish with reduced fading.
To compare the cost of trade paint to retail paint — the price of the numerous tins of poorer quality paint, required to complete a job, is likely to match the price of the fewer number of tins of trade paint. Thus, although the initial cost may be the same, the longer-lasting and more durable finish of the higher-quality trade paint is likely to save you time and money in the future.
Furthermore, professional decorators, due to their experience and knowledge can finish the job to a much higher standard than your average DIY enthusiast. Our experts have the right tools and techniques to work with all surfaces and can even consult on paint colour coordination.

Why Painting and Decorating Is Important
Painting and Decorating serves many different functions beyond just the obvious improvement in aesthetic appeal. Here are some great reasons why to consider upgrading the decoration as part of your routine property maintenance.
Surface Protection – Paint plays an important role in the protection of a range of substrates. When materials are left exposed to the elements, chemical erosion and rusting takes place. Paints are specifically designed to stop this erosion through their unique chemical make ups. A professional painter will know the correct type of paint to use for any given material and will be able to offer expert technical advice.
Waterproofing – water and moisture can cause a real problem for a whole number of construction materials. For example, untreated timber can be severely compromised when water continually permeates the grain. This can lead to rotting and break down of the structural integrity. Paints specifically formulated for application on timber can help to ‘waterproof’ the wood and prevent these problems.
Environmental benefits – if your house is old, or maybe it hasn’t been redecorated in a while, chances are the materials used for the internal and external finishes may not have been the most environmentally friendly. Fortunately, modern paints and finishes are required to have lower contents of Volatile Organic Compounds making them better for the environment. You can help to improve the environment by stripping back those old materials and applying modern finishes such as water-based paints to your property.
Energy performance – selecting the right colours for your home can help contribute to better energy performance of the property. Lighter colours on the correct walls can help with light reflection reducing the requirement for artificial lighting. Darker colours in the correct areas will help to absorb heat in the property from sunlight, reducing the need for artificial heating.

How to Hire Painters and Decorators in Rotherham
The vast amount of property owners work with painting contractors to repaint the interior and/or exterior of their buildings. Depending on the condition of your interior and exterior walls there may be some extra work required to prepare the surface for painting. Think about the kind of finish you deem acceptable. Be prepared to pay a little extra if extensive preparation is needed.
When hiring a painter and decorator don’t be afraid to ask them any questions during the initial consultation. Ask them to give you a detailed step by step process for the job, this will allow you to gauge their level of expertise. Typically 65/70% of a painter and decorators job is preparation.
Make sure you ask how long the job is going to take. Hiring someone with a slightly higher day rate may be more cost effective because they could get the job done quicker than a general handyman who charges a lower cost per day. Additionally ask for their level of experience, as with most jobs experience is key as no one painting and decorating project is ever the same.

Painting and Decorating Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN PAINTING WHY DOES IT BUBBLE?
Newly painted surfaces can often bubble due to trapped or moisture. This can occur for a number of reasons with the most common causes being too much moisture on the surface of the wall prior to painting, not following the paint manufacturer’s recommended drying times, applying paint to new plaster without primers, applying the coat of paint too thick and painting onto a surface that contains oil, dust and grease. If bubbling has occurred, you should scrape or sand off the affected areas. Make sure to allow the wall to dry out if it feels damp then apply a primer before repainting the topcoat. Good surface preparation is a main factor to help avoid this issue.
PAINTING VS WALLPAPERING?
Paint and wallpaper are both common materials to use when redecorating the interior of your home and both have advantages and disadvantages. For example, paint is generally easier to scrub down and remains timeless, particularly if you select neutral tones. On the other hand, wallpaper trends vary from season to season meaning you may get tired of looking at the same design. Wallpaper can be useful to hide imperfections on a wall, however paint tends to show any dents and bumps depending on the grade of paint used. Most of our customers like to supply their own designer wallpaper and use it in small areas or on feature walls. Both finishes have their merits, but it is worth considering the time and budget you have available, as wallpapering can be more labour intensive than painting, leading to additional costs.
WILL PAINTING OVER MOULD KILL IT?
Mould is common in areas where ventilation is poor, and condensation is high. Painting over mould will not necessarily kill the mould, so it is important to address the root cause of the issue to prevent further occurrences. A dehumidifier can be used to help dry out any damp walls that are affected by mould. Walls need to be cleaned with soapy water and a degreaser, then apply a purpose made mould killer spray, which will kill the mould spores. After the preparation is complete, apply a coat of stain blocking primer sealer to prevent the mould showing through. The wall will now be ready for the topcoat.
SHOULD I PAINT OR GLOSS FIRST?
There is no ‘best’ order when it comes to painting or glossing and it will depend on the skill, experience and preference of the painter carrying out the work. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages, for example, if you paint the ceilings and walls first, then there is less chance of creating a mess when it comes to ‘cutting in’ on the skirting boards and timber trims. On the other hand, if the glossing is done first, then it doesn’t matter so much if you get any on the walls, as these will be painted after anyway. Furthermore, you can run a bead of masking tape along the top of the skirting boards when it comes to painting the walls. This will help to make sure no paint runs down onto the skirting boards. Ultimately, you should select the method that allows you to paint speedily with as little mess as possible.
WHAT ARE PAINTERS AND DECORATORS?
Painters and decorators are classed as tradesmen and women. Painters and decorators aim to achieve a new look for your domestic, commercial or industrial building by applying paint, wallpaper or gloss to external and internal surfaces. Most professional decorators are able to work with a several surfaces including wood, plaster brick, metal and masonry.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO COMPLETE THE PAINTING AND DEOCRATING JOB?
This is a question our team of painters and decorators get asked on a frequent basis. When our painters and decorators visit your property to give an initial quote we will provide an approximate timeframe to complete the project. Please bear in mind that this is always a rough estimate and does not account for any unforeseen circumstances. Our professional decorators always aim to word speedily whilst still maintaining a high standard of finish. The timeframe for completing the job will depend on a number of factors including, the number of surfaces to paint, the amount of preparation required, and the type of work involved e.g. painting ceilings, wallpapering glossing etc.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO PAINT THE EXTERIOR OF A PROPERTY?
To paint the exterior of any property there needs to be a timeframe of dry and settled weather. If you are thinking of having the exterior of your building painted we recommend getting this done between the Spring and Autumn months, approximately April-October. The weather is usually relatively dry and mild which speeds up the drying time of the fresh paint. The drying times are increased when the weather is cold and damp.
This being said, some companies have now launched speciality masonry paint which allows exteriors to be painted outside of this recommended period. However, this paint is more expensive than standard masonry paint. We recommend speaking to a professional painter and decorator if you require any exterior painting and decorating work undertaking.
