With cold wind biting, the rain angling down and winter baring its teeth, painting your Barwon Heads home can become a challenge. So why not turn your attention to its interior, give it a fresh paint finish and get out of the bad weather.

It’s amazing how painting a room, or even just part of a room like the trim, can give it an instantaneous lift. But before you decide to tackle the hallway or the whole house, it’s wise to plan carefully, prepare surfaces carefully and select your paint products and tools carefully.

While the colour choice of paint is huge, and at times, overwhelming, there’s also a wide range of paint products to select from too. What paint should you use for the different surfaces in your home? Should you use a special paint for wet areas to inhibit mould growth? What sort of paint will best protect skirting boards or kitchen cabinetry? Do some paints cope better with cleaning? And what’s a robust choice for a kid’s bedroom?

Geelong Colourworld staff are a great first port of call for professional advice. Paint is our business and we can answer all those questions and then supply a quality paint product that best meets your needs. We stock a comprehensive range of paints including water-based enamel, gloss, high gloss, flat, satin, metallic and oil-based paints, as well as preparation, primers and stains.

The type of paint, not just its colour, will have an impact on your interiors. For example, a flat finish can help hide small imperfections on the walls of an old house, while hard-wearing paint such as semi gloss works well on areas that cop a lot of punishment and cleaning such as doors and trim.

One of the best pieces of advice we can give people before they start painting their home’s interior is to prepare their surfaces well before they open the first tin of paint. Great preparation leads to great results.

And we’re firm believers in using quality paints and products too. We stock Resene, Wattyl, Jotun, Taubmans and Sikkens ranges and we know they’re superior performers.

Our team can also arm you with helpful tips about techniques and equipment to help make the job go smoothly.

So before you embark on painting your Barwon Heads home’s interior, please contact us at Geelong Colourworld for more information. Our experienced team is happy to help with advice and great products.
