Painting the bedroom obviously gives the room a fresh look and it can be done on a budget. Before you can start painting, some small details need to ironed out. What color should your new bedroom be and how many gallons of paint will you need?
Is your bedroom small? Light blues, pastels, and off whites will give the illusion of more space. In contrast, darker colors such as orange, red, and navy blue, all make the room feel closed off if you want to make a large bedroom look cozy.
Make sure to buy enough paint. Sure, you’re only painting one room. One gallon of paint should cover 400 square feet, but that doesn’t take into account the number coats you’ll need to apply.
As you’re putting the final touches of paint on the wall, don’t forget about clean up. Brushes, rollers, and drops will all have to be taken care of. Using latex paint will help in the aftermath. Brushes can be washed out easier and rollers will be useful again if you use a water base paint.
