1. Choose Your Colors

Primero, decida cuál quiere que sea el ambiente de su sala: ¿informal, divertido o formal?

Casual colors are more neutral, such as Desert Dune, Shark and Ghost Writer and fit well with any décor.

Fun colors pop: Think bright hues that bring energy like Berry Picking, Butterfly Bush or Vitamin Sea.

Los colores formales tienden a los tonos similares a las joyas: rojos profundos, azules o incluso marrones intensos o negros. Use tones like Brick Dust, Admiralty, and Onyx.

Bright or formal hues are best used as accents alongside neutrals to keep the room from becoming overwhelming.

3. Decide on a Sheen

3. Decide on a Sheen

We advice that when painting the living room, you use eggshell and satin sheens.

While flat paint is best for hiding surface imperfections and is easy to touch up, satin sheens offer a nice gloss and are easier to clean.

Eggshell is more durable than flat paint, but not as shiny as satin paint.

Semi-gloss paints are fine for living room trim and window frames, but not the walls. Semi-gloss provide the greatest washability, but the shine enhances wall imperfections like bumps, patches, or unevenness in drywall.

5. Prep The Room

  • Quite todo lo que cuelgue de las paredes, cortinas y tapas de tomacorrientes e interruptores.

  • Put drop cloths down to protect floors and furniture.

  • Use caulk to fill nail holes, then wipe walls clean of dust and dirt.

  • Apply painter's tape to straight edges like over baseboards, and around windows and door frames.

Note: Be sure to remove painter's tape while the paint is still wet, or be prepared to lightly score where the tape meets the wall, to prevent pulling off the new paint.

6. Paint Your Walls

If you'll be painting your ceiling, start there and work your way down. Cut in a 2" paint line using a brush where the ceiling meets the wall, then switch to a roller to cover the main portion of the ceiling.

For the walls, cut in a 2" paint line using a brush where the wall meets the ceiling, and along the baseboards and trim. Luego, cambie a un rodillo para cubrir las áreas principales de las paredes.

Apply paint in a "W" or "V" pattern, working the paint in 2 to 3 foot sections. Be sure to always work back into the already painted area to make sure the paint color is even. 

If you need to apply more than one coat of paint, make sure to let the paint dry between coats.
