“Where do I start?” – It’s a question that bounces around the minds of many homeowners embarking on an interior painting project. Chris and John from Paint Life TV tackle this challenge head-on in their video ‘Jobsite Sequencing: INTERIORS – What to Paint First?’
The order of operations, or job sequencing, can dramatically impact the efficiency and outcome of a painting project. Interior painters understand the importance of sequencing. It’s more than just slapping on paint; it’s a careful choreography of steps designed to avoid mistakes and enhance productivity.
One key tip is to start from the top and work your way down. This means beginning with the ceiling before moving to the walls and finally, the trim. This approach prevents drips or splatters from ruining already painted areas.
Additionally, planning ahead for drying times can significantly boost efficiency. For example, while waiting for the first coat on one wall to dry, start painting another area.
Remember, the devil is in the details. Careful preparation, like covering furniture or masking baseboards, is equally as crucial as the painting project itself. By adopting these painting methods, homeowners can not only achieve a professional-looking result but also enjoy a smoother, more streamlined painting process.
