Painting Your House is Expensive, Here’s How To Get What You Want

If you wouldn't buy a pair of shoes without knowing what color they'd be, don't do it to the inside of your house! 

Painting your house costs literally thousands of dollars (unless you like torture, and paint it yourself) An average room has 6 surfaces you need to paint when changing colors, each with different finishes and paint grades. A professional grade paint schedule provides much more than just the color of the walls. They provide specific information relating to finish and location, as well as details about which products are best suited for each area. Here's what they are, and how to use them when painting your home. 

How A Paint Schedule Works

Think of a paint schedule as a creative insurance policy. They help to ensure that the painting contractor is using the right colors and products in the right areas without missing any important details. A paint schedule comes with a room key that corresponds with each part of the room. This includes the ceiling, walls, baseboard trim, window trim, door trim, and door slab. Using the paint schedule, your contractor is able to purchase the paint, and apply it to the correct areas inside your home.

Cohesive Look & Design

Additionally, a professional grade paint schedule can help you create a cohesive look throughout your home by providing you with a paint palette that works together, allowing you to easily coordinate house colors throughout your space.

Save Time & Money

Using a professional grade paint schedule when painting your house will not only make it look great but also save you time and money in the long run. Without a document like this, you don't have a surefire way of agreeing to a plan, this can leave your project open for debate if something goes wrong. Let's say you leave for work and come back to see that the contractor has painted your walls black, and doors white, when you wanted the opposite. He insists you told him you wanted this, so what do you do? Hopefully you can whip out a paint schedule and smack him over the head with it (gently ofc)
