Top Wall Painting related questions

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing a paint colour is to pick one that matches your current home design. Selecting a colour scheme that fits well with your existing furniture helps create a more cohesive look. Colour psychology can also guide you in choosing colours depending on the mood or ambience you want to establish. Blue and green shades can make small rooms appear more spacious, while red and yellow tones can instantly brighten up your space.

The actual duration depends on the size of the room and the number of walls you want to be painted. On average, wall painting jobs can take anywhere between 45 minutes to two hours. The process includes covering furniture, prepping and sanding the surfaces, applying multiple coats of paint, and cleaning up after the work is completed. If you need to have several rooms painted, then you must, of course, allow for additional time.

No, your wall painting expert will be the one to provide the supplies needed for the job. Just make sure to inform them of the size of your room, the colours and finishes you're planning on, and other essential information so that they can prepare ahead of time. In case you have any tools available on hand, you're also free to let your wall painter use them.

There are plenty of ways to retain the appearance of your newly painted walls. Regular cleaning is an effective way to prevent dirt and dust build-up while getting ceiling leaks checked as soon as possible can ward off moisture and mould. You may also opt to draw your blinds as often as you'd like, so no direct sunlight can come through and cause fading and unsightly damage on your paint and walls.

You don't have to be on-site, but you can choose to be if you want to keep an eye on the painting work. If you prefer for your wall painter to go ahead, you can give them access to your property at the scheduled time. Just remember to let them know the specifics of the job and if you have any fragile furniture items that need extra care.

How often you should repaint your interior walls depends on many factors. Most painting experts recommend repainting every three to five years to keep your walls clean and looking great. However, if you have a renovation or remodelling project underway, you may need to repaint your walls sooner. Take note that other factors, such as climate conditions and paint quality, can also affect how soon you may need repainting. 

What do wall painting services include?

Wall painting services can breathe new life into your space. Whether you're updating your entire home or refreshing a room or two, getting your walls painted can certainly boost the appearance and increase the value of your property. Wall painters on Airtasker do more than apply a new coat of paint. They can also help you with colour matching, wallpapering, and a whole range of other services including:

Interior wall painting

Beyond brightening up your space, interior wall painting can conceal unsightly stains and protect your walls from mould and other damage. If you don't have the time, skills, or tools to paint your walls yourself, wall painters can lend a hand! From covering your furniture and priming your surfaces to applying your chosen paint, they can carry out the work, so you don't have to lift a finger. 

If you want to get more out of your space, how about hiring a talented designer to re-style your interiors? Or maybe get a contractor to plan a renovation or extension to your home? Whatever you're looking for, our platform makes it easy to find specialists for all your home design and construction needs.

Bedroom wall painting

Painting your bedroom walls in tones that suit your style and personality can create the right ambience and make your room a safe and relaxing haven. Wall painting specialists can discuss with you your plans and guide you in choosing the right type and colour of paint for your walls. Afterwards, they'll peel off any dirt and loose wallpaper before sanding, priming, and painting the surfaces. Whether you're into warm neutrals or vibrant hues, wall painting experts can help bring your vision to life!

With fresh, new walls, you can get someone to elevate your home decor and revamp your room! Our platform even lets you find experts who can hang your prized art collection so that you can transform your dull corner into a stylish living space.

Kitchen and bathroom wall painting

Your kitchen and bathroom are likely the busiest areas of your home and require extra cleaning. Since this means more scrubbing, it's essential to choose a high-quality paint and finish to keep your walls clean and free from dirt, stains, and marks. We can connect you with wall painting experts who can help you throughout the whole process. From selecting the right paint and prepping the surfaces to getting the walls painted, they can handle everything while ensuring the safety of your family and your property.

Need to get your drab wallpaper stripped off right away before starting the painting work? Through our platform, hiring specialists to remove old wallpaper is much faster and convenient than searching for available wallpaper companies in your area.
