Things to think about when repainting your home

First: Before you start, pick a finish. Semigloss, eggshell and flat finishes all have their advantages. Higher-gloss paint offers greater durability and is very easy to clean. If your wall is less than perfect, however, high-gloss paint can enhance the imperfections. Flat paint will do a much better job of hiding imperfections, but it's much easier to damage than high-gloss.

Second: Don't let fear of color turn your room white. Colors can add depth and texture to your room. Using the right colors can turn an otherwise dull room into a beautiful, warm space.

Third: Square footage is only half of the equation. When you go to buy your paint, you have to know the square footage of your room. There are many other factors that contribute to the amount of paint you will need, however. Always consider the surface you're painting, whether you're priming walls and the number of coats your color is going to need. All of these things will affect the amount of paint you need to purchase.

Fourth: There is a reason it's called primer. Primer is essential in any good-quality paint job. It seals the surface of your walls and provides a great base for the paint to grab. If you've spackled your walls, priming is a must to prevent flashing. Unprimed spackle holds gloss better than drywall, causing a "shiny" spot on your wall.
