Redecorate with ease with our storage unit Watford

Redecorating a room is a lot of work and it can create a lot of mess. Our storage unit Watford will help.

Redecorating is a great way to spruce up your home. It can be a lot of fun – deciding on new colour schemes, new wallpaper etc. 

It is a lot of work though and it can create a lot of mess. Our storage unit Watford is here to make sure that all your belongings are kept safe and paint-free. 

But first, here are some redecorating tips: 

Find inspiration 

You can go old-school and buy a load of interior design magazines to look for inspiration or you can head online. 

A great place to look for inspiration is Pinterest. On Pinterest, you can find so much inspiration and you can create boards in which you can store all your ideas. You could get your partner or, if it is a communal area, your family to do this too and then you could see what you are all thinking and see if you could combine ideas. This would make the new space work for everyone. 

Prep you walls 

This tip comes directly from Dulux, the gods of decorating, so we think it really needs to be taken seriously – prep your walls

This means giving them a wipe down with warm, soapy water to remove any dirt and fill in any cracks or holes with filler. This will make the actual decorating so much easier. 

Don’t put too much paint on the roller (even if you have brought your belongings to our storage unit Watford!)

Loading up your brushes and rollers seems like a really good idea but, with brushes, it will just create a lumpy paint job. With rollers, it will drip everywhere, creating a mess. Even though your belongings will be safely stored in one of our storage unit Watford, you do not want to create an unnecessary mess. 

Using a smaller amount of paint may take a little longer but you will do a much better job. 

Paint the edges first 

Known as “cutting in the edges”, this is when you paint in the corners, around the ceiling line, around light switches etc. first. This will create a neater paint job when you finally get out the rollers. 

Put your rollers into an airtight bag overnight 

If you are painting in the same colour over a couple of days, do not waste your time washing the roller. Simply place it into an airtight plastic bag overnight. 

This will save you time and paint. And a lot of frustration because you won’t be waking up to find that your roller is still wet from washing it. 

Bring all your belongings to our storage unit Watford

Most importantly, before you even put a blob of paint on the wall, pack up all your belongings and furniture and store them within our storage unit Watford
