One of the cheapest and quickest changes that you can make to breathe new life into your home is by painting it. Even someone with very little experience can do the work as long as they do some research beforehand, and then take the time to do it carefully.
One important choice to make is whether you should use latex or oil paint. Your choice might depend on the location where you are painting, since oil based paints are more durable than latex, and therefore suitable for surfaces where you expect to get a lot of wear.
When shopping for paint, you truly get what you pay for. If you buy a cheap paint, it might very well flake early, or you will find that it is not covering as well as you had expected, requiring the purchase of additional paint. If you get the best paint that you can afford, you’re more likely to be happy with the results.
