Here are some basic tips if you’re getting ready to paint the interior of your home. These are also useful to determine whether you may want to hire a professional to do the job.

1. Measure the wall area that you will be painting. This will help you buy the correct amount of paint. And if you’re hiring a pro, it will give them the basic information to give you a bid or quote for the job.

2. Remember to prep the walls before you start painting. That means filling and sanding any holes.

3. Part of the prep work includes masking the areas around door frames, light switches and outlets with tape. And don’t forget to protect your floors and furniture by covering them with either plastic or canvas sheets.

Now you’re ready to paint. Or if this sounds like too much work, then you might want to consider hiring someone to do the job for you.
