Interior Painting in Annapolis:  The Prep Work

Prep work is vitally important to have a beautifully interior paint job, and spackling is part of the process.  Unfortunately, when sanding the spackle, if it is done without a vacuum attachment, the spackle dust carries. 

It is astonishing how few interior painting contractors sand spackle areas with vacuum attachments.  Spackle dust is very light and can carry throughout a house, even into closets.

We avoid this problem by sanding with vacuum attachments on our sanders, and it collects 95% of the dust before it has a chance to land where no one wants it. 

Out interior painting best practices include using a vacuum attachment when sanding and using the most flexible spackles so those cracks don’t come back.

Tips for Picking the Right Colors for Interior Painting

Color adds interest to a room.  But the color doesn’t have to come from the paint. 

The picture on the right has its walls painted with neutral color from PPG Transcend.  There needs to be a splash of color added, and the throw pillows provide that beautifully.  In contrast, if we were to take the throw pillows from the sofa in the left picture and replace them with the one on the right, the room would look dull.
